My New Kitchen!

Today I painted my kitchen.


Now I want to paint the rest of my walls either a very light green or yellow. Something very calm.

Well, that's pretty much all I have to say today.

Oh! Everybody should read The Passage by Justin Cronin. It's so good. So good that I was afraid to turn the lights off last night. Scary scary. :D

Okay, so it's been a while...

But I'm back!

This summer I've been doing a lot of delicious cooking from cuisines all around the world. Caribbean, Cuban, Chinese, Japanese, French... it's all been amazing so far!

Today I made.... some sort of Americanized Asian cuisine. Anonymous but delicious. It was a Creamy Curry, Tofu & Veggie Pot Pie. Seeing as I have a limit on my pans it was more like one mini-pot pie and one normal pie.

Anyways. It was super easy (it used puff pastry instead of normal pie dough). I normally don't like pot pies because they are always chicken and the chicken in store bought pot pies always grossed me out... but I figured I'd try making one with tofu because that couldn't ever be gross meat, and I've been using coconut milk a lot lately.

So here's how it turned out. I had a shortage of puff pastry so the crust isn't the most beautiful, but oh well. It tasted delightful.

I made Porcupine meatballs the other day after a long run. I was so hungry by the time I finished that I just threw them on my plate. This is their story:

Nice, huh?
