Chad and his fancy-pants dinner

Posted in photo, recipe by gwen on January 9, 2010

After about six months of cooking, starting with absolutely no knowledge at all of anything domestic, Chad has officially surpassed my culinary skills.

I had to wait til midnight to eat but it was totally worth it.

Skirt steak with paprika butter
Sunchoke-kale hash with Farro

If you’re a veggie, don’t look.

Cafe au lait, $1.82, Cafe du Mond

Cafe au lait, $1.82, Cafe du Mond

Here’s one more folder of photos from our trip to New Orleans in March done, fourteen more to go. I might just finish by New Year’s.

This was our last full day in town, we did all kinds of things that I will get to the photos for soon! really!, the first of which was a stop at Cafe du Mond. [Come to think of it, stopping at Cafe du Mond was about the last thing we did that day, too. Stick out that video, it’s funny.]

I wish we had one here, not being able to get beignets and coffee at 3 a.m. is seriously, negatively affecting my quality of life.

And the only thing you can get for $1.82 any time of day here is a taco. Which is not a bad deal, but I need more coffee than tacos.
