Ooh, I just love leeks, don’t you ?! Is there anything prettier than a chopped up bunch of the green beauties dancing in a hot pan with some shallots ? Perhaps a handful of fresh parsley, sparkling in the late afternoon sun ? Or maybe the addition of carrots, broth and spices bubbling happily away in my kitchen… YES ! I will be the first to admit that spending quality time with the stove and knives is not my favorite way to spend a day. But there is something so satisfying about chopping away, the snick of the blade in time to the 80’s tunes blasting out of the Bose; the smells and sizzles from the pan enticing me…

For our evening meal, the foxling and I are feasting on braised veggies and piles of steaming, brown rice. Topped with a few soft-cooked eggies, this will be a meal fit for a king. Well, a prince, at the very least. =) We have put in WAY too many hours on school work today, and I am looking forward to setting iTunes to a jazz station, having a conversation about meaningless things and digging into a hot meal. The jig is up… we live a life of glamour. =) What does the night have in store for you and yours ?
