I got this as a gift at Christmas. I’m not planning on doing a Julie/Julia type project, mostly because I am too lazy. (Isn’t honesty fun!)
But since I am taking next week off from work, I’ll make one thing from the book, and post about it here. I can’t decide what would be best: something I fail miserably at, because it’s more fun to read and write about culinary disasters, or something I know I can succeed at and thus build my confidence until the inevitable failure.
Any comments from the peanut gallery?
The real reason I wanted this book is because I’ve gotten lazy about cooking. Mr Lush is happy with the regular rotation of stuff I make, so why bother making something else? Besides, it’s easier to just make spaghetti carbonara AGAIN, rather than to try something new, because that takes planning and it might not taste good. So this is sort of a resolution, although I would not go so far as to call it that–that way lies failure. Rather, it’s me attempting to learn new dishes. Because while I am lazy, I’m perfectly capable of doing more: I like to bake, and that’s a lot fussier and more time-consuming than your average dinner recipe.
So. Onward and upward.
