8/8 This morning I woke up and Scott surprised me by telling me, “pack 3 days of clothing, we’re going on a surprise trip!” Soooo coooool! We’re just about to leave but I wanted to tell you that I’ll spin the random number generator wheel as soon as I have a moment with Internet access after 3pm.
I have no idea where he’s taking me!! I’m in VEGAS, baby!!!!
It’s my birthday and I wanna give away a cool gift!
It’s my birthday on 8/8/08 and I’m compiling a version of Bittman’s 101 Simple Meals Ready in 10 Minutes or Less Except, Asian style. Here are my differences:
Steamed Mussels Put three pounds of washed mussels in a pot with 2 tablespoons of Thai curry paste, 2 cups of coconut milk, garlic cloves, Thai basil leaves and chopped tomatoes. Steam until mussels open. Serve with bread or rice. The simpler and more elegant the recipe is, the better. You can link to a recipe, but please at least describe what you’re linking to. Name your recipe too!
of course, no photo needed for your entry..
