So with all that time spent on the couch, I developed a love of food tv. A love? An obsession, maybe. Where has this been all my life? Constant access to delicious inspiration meals and ideas combined with a whacked out appetite/nausea combination has made for some intense episode watching. I have even set the dvr to record shows that might conflict with Blues Clues or Modern Family.
Please tell me I'm not the only one.
Or don't. That's ok, too.
My husband can't tell if I'm torturing myself or really enjoying it. By ten o'clock every night I want to go to the grocery store and stock my kitchen with fresh herbs, prosciutto, international cheeses and special breads and fish.
Last weekend I could. Not. Take. It. Anymore. And I felt good enough to spend an hour in the kitchen preparing something.
And, oh my goodness. I made Giada's Grilled Vegetable, Herb and Goat Cheese Sandwich and it knocked my socks off. With no access to japanese eggplant, I only used zucchini, but it didn't matter. The sun-dried tomatoes and herbs and cheese and crunchy bread and.. oh my. It was heaven on my plate.
It almost pained me to shoot photos of it before digging in.
And then it was all gone.
