|Another one I couldn't resist at supermarket checkout.|
But guess what happened? While flipping through the magazine, I was intrigued by the Seared Scallops with Warm Radicchio and the Portabello Mushrooms with Creamy Spinach-Artichoke Filling [not too creamy!]
My kitchen ended up being taken over by two teen girls making Moroccan orange cupcakes with dark cocoa icing for their friend's bday tomorrow, in between checking Facebook status and dancing to music. But scallops can go bad, and I wanted to eat some veggies, so I made the one dish anyway, omitting the pancetta b/c H. eats no meat. Delicious! Big helping of radicchio. Perhaps I am turning over a new leaf.
But still, cranky and tired. Lots of kitchen cleanup--even though Fig and Charlotte loaded the dishwasher. Need magic pill and 9 hours sleep.
- Boot camp in the park--beautiful sunny day. Patsy had us running back and forth across the field.
- Bought tarragon chicken salad sandwich on rye, had half, squirreled half away.
- Walked Sug around block once.
- New leaf [above].
- Have been resisting buying storebought cookies and cakes. Not as appealing, as made by machines, with lots of artificial ingredients and no heart. If really want something, can bake the real thing.
