so i checked my counter for the first time in several months and i see that i'm getting an insane number of hits...thanks to being linked on apartment therapy's kitchn.com. who knew?
i actually have a sorta-kinda food journal- it's mostly a place where i can store recipes that i like. http://dinnerjournal.blogspot.com
tonight i made pork cutlets with figs and balsamic vinegar and it was truly fabulous. i also made a salad with mixed greens, roasted tomatoes, marinated mozzarella, and dates- which was also quite wonderful. for you LA peeps, be sure to check out "farm boy"- it's like farmer's market meets korean grocery store prices. i had a hell of a time finding fresh figs (i even called a few middle eastern markets) and lo and beyond, farm boy came to the rescue.
ps: the holiday party was a smashing success. i think we'll have one every year.
