While I was out...

I've found myself completely wrapped up in school lately and not in the kitchen. Things have gotten extremely exciting at school and food has been pushed to the back burner. I don't even remember what I ate last week. Here's a bit of a rundown of the latest:
  • When there's no time for fancy, time-consuming dinners I stick to the classics like lamb burgers with minty mayo and simple roasted potatoes with herb de Provence and a creamed leeks side.
  • Then I use leftovers and pass them off as new with these golden yuca cakes smothered in leeks
  • I had a nice little bake sale at school and made blackberry cheesecake pie, chocolate dipped cranberry biscotti, Nutella Frangelico brownies, chocolate caramel cupcakes, and pecan date rice crispies.
  • I'm totally obsessed/excited about Pettibon, CBP, SOT, and Craniopathy which probably means absolutely nothing to any reader here.
  • I really love this dry white port we've had lately: Porto Niepoort from Portugal.
  • I have succumb to the Mario Batali footwear craze -- the Crocs. They aren't bright orange but they are still the ugliest things I've ever seen in my life. However, they are the most practical foot apparatus (can you even call them a shoe?!) ever. If you spend a lot of time on your feet in the kitchen or around the house cleaning and such, get a pair and never leave the house with them on because they are too hideous for the outside world. Your back will be grateful.
