lest you think that the time i spend in my kitchen is always wonderful, inspiring and delicious, you should’ve been in my apartment last night. i won’t dwell on the small mishaps that combined to make it one of the more unsatisfying dinners i’ve had in a long while. but i will say that it involved leaving the office late, running up to the grocery store just as they locked the doors, a large rotten tomato that exploded all over my kitchen when i picked it up, realizing i was out of eggs, finding that the cheese was already moldy, and finally, washing down my defeat with multiple glasses of wine.
but, i did manage to cobble together something sweet before bed. passionfruit ice cream, with some blueberries and crumbled ginger thins on top. it almost made me forget about my disaster of a dinner. lesson learned: never underestimate the power of ice cream.
