I’d been buying whole chickens lately. It’s what they tell you to do on all the cooking shows. I’ve been roasting them whole (recipe) and in pieces (recipe). But every time, I would throw away the bones. Finally, it was time to just suck it up and make the effort.

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of cooking that happened to not leave any leftovers. The OCD eater in me loves this. Keeping the fridge free of leftovers or unused groceries makes me happy. However, the food hoarder in me loves having a fridge full of things that I could easily just pop in the oven, microwave or otherwise. It was time to indulge the food hoarder. Entonces, enchiladas.
I’ve been trying to commit a couple of key recipes to memory. Pizza dough, pasta, bread. These are all things that I feel like I should just be able to crank out without having to refer to the Internet. So I’ve been making them over and over again. Next on my list is: cookies.
About a week ago, I started planning on something special to eat while watching the bears play the night game on Sunday. It would also happenthat the Cards would also be playing that night. And then, on Saturday, we bought a new couch, which meant that Sunday would be my last day with my old couch.
I have been eating a lot of Panda Express lately. Sometimes, I just can’t help it. I’ve gone several times over the last couple of weeks, and it reminds me of law school. I know it’s terrible for me, so I decided I would try and make some orange chicken at home.
Although we live in Chicago, when it comes to baseball, I am still a St Louis fan. And so, over the past couple weeks, I’ve been enjoying a lot of baseball while drinking a lot of Budweisers. Last night, I decided to step it up one more notch and we made this St. Louis delicacy – toasted raviolis.
