All I’m willing to say at this point is that I felt a little chef-y yesterday. Various ideas from my usual array of inspiring magazines and Food Network lineup and the new Trader Joe’s discoveries (steamed and peeled beets and individual goat cheese rounds) that were in my refrigerator culminated into a menu idea for me, by me.
For a creative person who hasn’t felt very creative lately, I know that taking the time to make a dinner that nurtured my body as it honored my creative soul is a step in the right direction. That much I can say. Oh, and in case you're wondering: yes, it was as delicious as it looks.
