I'm feeling sad. I've felt sad for a few days now. I am trying not to feel sad. I went into the kitchen hell bent on not spending a day cooking mindlessly then I realized it's what I do to try to not feel sad.
Today is steak pie (my kidneys didn't look fabulous) so I added loads of onions so it's steak and onion pie. I pressure cooked it, details later, and it's cooling. I went out on a limb and made my own pastry, pastry hates me as we all remember, but I made my vodka dough in the cuisinart so hopefully it will be kind to me, knowing I feel sad. It's cooling too. I wanted something lovely for dessert, so I made lemon curd. It's cooling.
While everything is cooling, I decided to play with a croissant recipe and it's chilling too.. I guess there's nothing to do but sit here, have a glass of wine and wait until everything comes together when it's finished chilling.
I'll post the play by play after I play by play it.
I hope you're not feeling sad. I hope you're feeling happy and cooking happy food that you can sit and enjoy with people who love you without making you feel small or unimportant. You're a child of the universe, and you cook, that makes you cool! :)
