Spring Break is Over
It seems almost unbelievable, but my spring break is just about over. It’s Sunday night, I’m watching Iron Chef. “Battle Butter”?! I should go to bed, get back in the “school routine” and work towards getting over this cold, but I’m too intrigued.
My Man and I didn’t cook as much as I intended to over break (actually, we didn’t do several things I intended to–breaks apparently aren’t as long as they used to be). We did create one great olive-tomato-and-cucumber salad (all his idea) and we made broiled polenta with cheese on top. I’d never have polenta before, and it’s not bad. Definitely worth considering various ways to use in the future.
Lots of good conversation was had during the past week about food and related issues. How we want to shop, what we want to eat, local vs. organic vs. quanity of produce. Eating was a lot simpler when I didn’t know anything. Now every shopping trip is filled with questions and options. I know I’m not doing as well as I could be and I remain hopeful that living with someone whose tastes and food interests are more similar to one and playing more of a direct role in the shopping and cooking will improve things. I’ve finally started reading Food Matters by Mark Bittman and it’s really eye opening, but sometimes having so much information is overwhelming and guilt inducing. But I remind myself again, doing something (eating meat one less time a day, purchasing grains in bulk, eating more produce) is meaningful, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
In other news, 2 months until the wedding :)
