I've got friends coming over tomorrow night for dinner and still no menu. And somehow I'm more annoyed about this than inspired.
Should I make arroz con pollo? I've never tried making it before but always love ordering it in restaurants. Mmm...and plantains and yuca chips... [via Smitten Kitchen]
Or maybe chicken enchiladas? It would give me a good excuse to break out the guacamole... [via BA]
Or shrimp and grits? [via Serious Eats]
Or maybe a risotto? Jamie Oliver makes one with roasted garlic, thyme, toasted almonds and breadcrumbs [via Food Network]
You know what my cooking block actually is?
I AM OFFICIALLY OVER WINTER.
I want to shop at the farmer's market again. The thought of eating a good tomato makes me want to weep.
I want to drink something fruity on a sunny patio somewhere.
Or have a picnic in Prospect Park.
Or barbecue on the beach, wearing cutoffs and no shoes.
Or...OMG...flowers! Remember flowers? On bushes? Growing outside?
At least I have my Flickr to transport me to happier, warmer times. But, man, it's just not the same.
