Looks like the cold virus has settled in to my apartment (and myself, unfortunately) so Jeff and I haven't exactly been up to our usual standards of gourmet cooking. That said, we did manage to eat a few more of our fruits and veggies.

We obtained a beautiful marble rolling pin for a very reasonable price (10$) on Craigslist, and it makes a much better flattening device than foil wrapped around an empty wine bottle. We enlisted both this and the Joy of Cooking to make some tortillas. Eaten with tempeh, rice, refried beans (canned, as I haven't tried making refried beans from scratch yet), some home-made hot sauce and our avocado, we had a delicious burrito night.

The next morning was the antithesis of the gourmet spectacle, and we made a hastily-strewn-together batch of mashed potatoes for breakfast. We were going to eat french fries (yes, for breakfast!) but settled on mashed potatoes for the quickness of boiling over baking. I also put away the remaining mandarin orange to hopefully ward off the cold, but to no avail.

Jeff has been helping out with the romaine, bean sprouts and broccoli by making salads with walnuts and fresh basil from my windowsill garden.

Yet to eat:
  • broccoli
  • bean sprouts
  • romaine
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 granny smith
  • 1 red pear
  • 1 orange
