glorious food

*photos from last night's dinner

lately, i've been having a little too much fun poking through some new food blogs i've discovered. aside from the remarkable presentation of the dishes and the impeccable photographs, the sites are both so simple and unadulterated. i appreciate that the recipes are not the end-all-be-all of the posts and the creativity involved in these dishes is very inspiring. it's funny how in analyzing my appreciation of these blogs, i notice that they don't make me hungry or desirous of the food (although it looks delicious!) instead, they inspire me to want to cook more--to be more vigilant in the kitchen, more consistent, and more adventurous. i love making things with my hands and i don't know what it is about food, but i desperately enjoy making it--even more so than i do eating it!

having just received an enormous delivery of groceries from fresh direct, i am eagerly thinking up all the goodies i can make tomorrow. i've already put together a quick arugula, basil, & pine nut pesto before my basil spoiled. i have all this ground beef to make something with. maybe a bolognese sauce to freeze? or meatballs? cuban picadillo, maybe? help!! i'm htinking of putting together some homemade sauces in some sort of packs on etsy...thoughts?
