i watch the Food Network on the little tv while i'm on the treadmill.
depending on when i workout,
it's usually either Barefoot Contessa
or Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.
oh Guy Fieri.
that bleach-blonde hair gets me every time.
this time it was Best Thing I Ever Made
and Guy was talking about his Nor Cal Cioppino
i was both starving,
so the next day i went for it
|many many sea creatures|
|ranunculus and succulents on the dining room table. i'm so trendy.|
i made this for Nick
after he'd had a particularly rough day at work
he's told me about how his Nonna used to make Cioppino
in Santa Cruz, CA
using the fresh catch the fishermen in the family would bring home from the wharf
i was channeling her the whole time.
funny story, though....
...Nick doesn't like Cioppino.
marriage strikes again.
funny story, part two...
...i'm allergic to shrimp.
someone once said not to let bloggers make you feel inferior
because you're comparing your behind-the-scenes
to their highlight reel.
this is the behind the scenes.
