Yesterday, I took a break from woefulness to make a quick version of beef bourguignon, and settled down to peel 2 lb pearl (although these are rather more robust than pearls) onions. Came together rather nicely, too. But then, I'm a major fan of my own cooking. Plus I love my green Le Creuset pot. I believe I use it almost every day for something or other.
And I made Busy Day Chocolate Cake (see Mad Hungry, but this is the recipe that you mix up right in the cake pan, a recipe that you probably have stashed away somewhere; it's vegan, too, as LSQ points out).
So, off to pilates, and then to buy eggs. What could be more grounding than that?
