Mmmmm

The last time I was in San Francisco for the day job, we went to Kitchen on Fire for a team building experience. Basically, these two chefs help your group cook something delicious. We had a great time and about a dozen bottles of wine between 20 of us didn’t hurt. One of the recipes involved taking romaine lettuce heads, chopping then in half lengthwise, coating the flat pars with oil and grilling them. It tasted so amazing I tried it on my own tonight. It continued to be completely amazing. I think I ate half a head of lettuce (and it was a huge head of lettuce.) I can only hope that it tastes this good tomorrow as well.

I didn’t write yesterday. I had every intention of writing. However, when I got home I was just exhausted. I was in bed by 9:30, which is unheard of for me. Today though, I’m all set. I solved one of the problems I was having this afternoon while I was walking and now I’m about to just sit down and do it. Really. Not procrastinating here. Nope. Going to go write. Just watch me write. *G*

    • I used canola oil, but I’m sure olive oil would do. And I used a countertop grill this evening, and it worked great! I’m sure an outdoor grill would be better, but the countertop one worked just fine.

    • Ummmm. No.

      Not only did I not blame you, I didn’t even mention you.

      It took me until last night to remember that this has happened before. Antibiotics affect the efficacy of my thyroid medicine, which causes light-weight exhaustion colds — 1-2 days instead of 3-4, and just exhausted, not debilitated. So — not placing blame your direction at all.

  1. “Watch me write”? Gad, lady, why do you want to torture me? I have to watch ME write as it is!

    Still… grilled lettuce… hmm…

    • Heh. I figure it’s probably pretty boring to watch me write, actually. I don’t think I pull funny faces or anything. Except that one time . . .

      The grilled lettuce was so nice. I’m looking forward to having it again for lunch!
