confessions of a foodie
i have been addicted to watching cooking shows the past few days. i haven't cooked in forever. i mean really cooked - like a big meal with new recipes. i used to do it all the time. on friday i saw some recipes i wanted to make so i bought all the fixins. i always see something that looks good and don't realize how expensive the meat is. this time i spent over $20 just on the meat. i was planning on cooking it up yesterday but ran out time. so i spent my afternoon today cooking. i made Chinese Braised Short Ribs, Wasabi Mashed Potatoes and Edamame in Kung Pao Sauce. the meal feeds 8 people but i am the only one here. didn't feel like inviting anyone over. so i'll have TONS of leftovers. the dogs got some of the meat and charlie got the edamame and potatoes. it turned out awesome and we are all happily full!
