…I had hoped to have a lovely picture for you, here, of my dinner, today — but my camera has conspired against me. It was steamed sweet potatoes and black beans on tortilla chips, topped with guacamole. The steamed sweet potatoes are easy-peasy to make, and delicious, too. Just grab a bunch of sweet potatoes, peel them, cut them into roughly half-inch cubes, and steam them for exactly 7 minutes — then toss them with your favorite oil (I like peanut) and season with salt and pepper. Also makes an excellent side dish for any meat. But, I’ve been thinking… why not have a meatless Friday? I’m not Catholic, and I’m not considering going without meat, but I do have to think about new food ideas a lot. It seems to me that a professional food worker should regularly consider vegan or, at least, vegetarian dishes while brainstorming food ideas. So, meatless Fridays? I’m thinking about it.
…I mean seriously, if you want to celebrate Irish history and culture, learn a few words of Gaelic, starting with, “Tá mé ina amadán.” If you just want an excuse to get falling-down drunk in public, then go celebrate Mardi Gras again.
…build your case on this review. Live With Kelly was awesome, this morning. Martin Short was an hilarious guest host (see him again, tomorrow), Ewan McGregor is the most beautiful human being ever (our very own Cary Grant), and I was inspired to put a Lazy Susan in the refrigerator (I already have baskets for the meat and cheese).
