Baking bread in this weather is BRUTAL! I set up a tapestry over the open doorway in my kitchen so the heat doesn’t get everywhere in my apartment, but the kitchen turns into one hell of a sweatbox.
This is just a loaf of bread from dough that’s been sitting in my fridge for a while. Figured I should actually get around to making a loaf. I keep flooding out the gas pilot light when I put a cup of water in to steam the outside of the bread (so it gets that pretty sheen), so lately I’ve been opening the door to… warm soggy bread and a slightly warm oven. But this cooked up just fine after I re-lit the light. I’ve just gotta stop turning the damn light out.
I wanted some pasta, but nothing heavy and creamy (especially with this heat… doesn’t really make me crave rich and heavy cream sauces).
Just cooked some onions and zukes in olive oil with dried oregano, GarlicGarlic! seasoning, lots of salt, and 2.5 handfuls of chopped capers.
Albany John was out and about in Albany with friends from out of town for the night, and Ellsbells didn’t have any plans, so she came over and we slathered our naked bodies in pasta and veggies while building life size model of Ryan Seacrest out of Discover Card application mail.
I’m kidding. She always wears pants. Girl’s a never-nude.
I also got a belated birthday gift from my girlie in Waco, TX! She sent me this rad Hello Kitty black wallet! I just got it in the mail. I am so rocking this puppy during the Official Unofficial Troy Night Out After Party tonight at Daisy Bakers!
