I made it!

Ever since I moved to my new apartment, I have cooked more and ordered less. Sorry Seamless, but this is a good change for me.

Recently I tried this recipe for a Mexican casserole from Joanna Goddard’s blog by Jennifer Farley of Savory Simple.

I added ground beef to my version, but it would also be great with pulled chicken or chorizo. It was easy to make and I had meals for days. If one were inclined to make this lower fat or to hide vegetables inside, that would be simple to pull off.

It had been a while since I did much baking so I also made an apple-pear-blueberry crisp from my old standby desserts-only cookbook.

If you have any cook-ahead go-to meals, I’d love to hear about them in the comments.

The best things

These are the best things I’ve seen/read/heard in recent days.

Have you watched this video of strangers kissing? I had such a giddy feeling as I did so–and I wondered if any of the former strangers swapped phone numbers!

The lovely Aussa Lorens joined Instagram!

I love the photo of young Bolshoi dancers Joanna posted on her blog.

There’s a great Tim Riggins reference in this NY Mag profile of writer Lorrie Moore.

Blame ennui.

Miscellany – Austin, food, more food

Many months after moving into Williamsburg, I *finally* made it to Fette Sau. LOVED it.

My neighbor friend, her daughter and I went on a whim, ordering barbecued meat by the pound and beer served in mason jars (well, the two adults had beer; the three-year old stuck with water). As twilight fell, we ate at a shared picnic bench and chatted with the young couple next to us.

If you like to talk about food (ingredients, restaurants, anything), check out donrockwell.com. It began as a DC-centric food discussion site, but has expanded with time.

I made some great friends through the site, and I still post – just usually about NYC spots now.

I love Joanna Goddard’s post about her family’s trip to Austin. Can’t wait to get back there in a few weeks.
