getting ready for summer

so, i’m gearing up. i ordered my ice cream maker from amazon. i made a shopping list of smoothie ingredients. i’m scouring the web for chicken, pasta, and potato salads. i’m prepping to go crazy with the breadmaker. i’m stoking up on fruit.

bring it on. :-)

i’ve added an absolute slew of recipes to my macgourmet, mostly sandwiches and other similar things.
i think i should make more lists, organizing food by seasons...hmmm. something to consider.

my buttermilk chocolate cake came out as perfection last weekend. michael suggested that i should make a fruit salad and top it with the leftover pastry cream. yum. and i finally got a chance to try the pasta with proscuitto-parm cream sauce and it was TO DIE FOR. i reconstituted some dried porcini mushrooms and added those to the mix...divine.

today i had a major find--wagamama publishes cookbooks! i ordered both of them, in hopes of tracking down my beloved chicken tama rice, but i had to order them from the UK and even though the website said that it would dispatch within 24 hours, my email confirmation says it won’t ship until the end of the month.

boo. but it’s still better than only getting my chicken tama rice on the rare occasions i get to visit england.
