So I’m not one to start blog posts with a quote, but this one is too appropriate not to share. Julia Childs once said, “I enjoy cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food…” Same, Julia. Same.
So the other day Jaryd and I had the opportunity to go have lunch by ourselves. Like a mini midday date. We decided on a place and were psyched to try something new. As we drove by the restaurant, it was PACKED. I mean, line out the door, cramped, scour for seating kind of packed. I had an unexpected urge of repulsion.
So I was up for new glasses. J is switching jobs and we decided to use our glasses benefit before we switch eyeball insurance. OMG this this most mundane first two sentences of a blog post evaaa. It gets better though. You know it gets good because all good stories start with a seemingly mundane activity. Like buying eyeglasses.
There are so many things I love about this recipe. First things first: the flavors!! Holy happiness, the flavor combo on this bad boy is unreal. Add tender and moist dark meat thighs (my absolute FAVE) to a beautiful pool of fire roasted tomatoes and it’s new heights amazing. Zero exaggeration, you guys!!
So we got Caleb back in swim lessons after a way too long hiatus following Nolan’s birth. Caleb slowly progressed from
the child on the side screaming a timid little fish to completely doggie paddling independently with a noodle wrapped around him. I awarded him most improved. Well, I had a moment. I have these moments in my life that I do something and decide I will never do them again.
