Happy Graduation Day to my brother's girlfriend who graduated from FIT. I hope life gives her the best it has to offer!
Last night's dinner was a very tasty Turkey Pot Pie.
Saturday night I made duck legs. We've either been on an Asian food kick or an interesting food kick. The smell of the duck was very nice but it was so fatty the texture was a bit gummy.
I was happy to find that Whole Foods also carries my favorite brand of Madelines, Donsuemor. I only thought Starbucks carried them.
A funny article on pooing in Germany.
Wasn't Sunday's Aliasa holy crap moment? I kind of suspected the ending to turn out that way a few weeks back, but with the addition of Sydney's sister I was thrown off track a bit.
I received the latest Issue of Martha Stewart and there are a few recipes I want to try:Lemon-blackberry pudding cakes, Vietnamese Summer Rolls, Spaghetti with Shrimp Scampi and Lemon meringue Pie. (sorry there aren't any links. When I make the dishes I'll type in the recipes).
I discovered some time ago the British have a different name for eggplant. They call it Aubergine. They use this term since the French do. In our house we call it Patlajan. It is Romanian and since my mother's mom grew up in Romania(yes Dracula country) this is the name we use.
I think Aubergine is a much nicer than eggplant. I thought it was also a pretty name for a girl. Of course I wouldn't name a daughter after a veggie/fruit. I wouldn't want her to go through the troubles that I had and occasionally still do with my name.
