Notes and scribbles from a day of IACP sessions.
Delicious, reinvented deli food at Kutscher’s with friends.
A decidedly different meal from my simple, home-cooked one last night. For the first night of IACP, I met up with three friends for dinner at Caffe Storico. It was such a good meal.
I got walloped by a nasty flu-like thing this week. Normally, when I feel crappy, I try to stay as far away from the kitchen as possible. However, I also started to feel really tired of take-out. So this dinner appeared. Whole wheat spaghetti with pesto from the freezer. Roasted asparagus. Pan-seared chicken tenders. It was easy and didn’t require a lot of pots or pans. I sometimes forget that dinner doesn’t have to be a big deal. Sometimes it can just be this.
Jury duty. Thankfully, it was a slow day in the court system and the large panel to which I was assigned was canceled before we even had a chance to leave the jury assembly room. I served for a full week back in 2009 (it was just a few days after we got back from our honeymoon) and it was such a negative experience that I was relieved not to have to do it again so soon.
