how you dooin?
lol, actually jersey has two or three distinct accents, from a brooklyn-ese style (from so many new yawkuhs moving to the burbs over the past 50 years, including my family), a south jersey/philly/delaware accent -where the "o" is rounded kinda funny, to the very non-descript east coast accent which happens to be the most common.
i have the latter for the most part, but i do let out an all too natural "how you dooin'?" every once in a while that would make robert deniro proud.
ok, back on topic.
linux, we're big on take aways as well. hmm, actually, it would be better described as take away from an otherwise sit down, tableclothed restaurant. and of course chinsese take outs, which aren't as well appointed, lol. i wish we had good indian by us.
at one time, when dw was thinking of going back to work, i looked into getting a (semi?) private chef because we were eating out and getting take out far too often, and it is showing up on my gut. it probably wouldn't have been much more expensive, either.
but then dw lied down for a while, and the feeling of going to work went away, lol.
(man, she's gonna kill me for that one...
now i'm on this forsaken midnight shift for good, so it's giving us much more time to cook, from scratch-ish, at home.
goodweed's pancakes, lemon beurre blanc from fresh butter garnished with window garden parsley, and fra diavolos from my garden tomatoes, basil, and chiles aside, i still want my shake-n-bake now and then.
i will be attempting my first grilling/dipping sauce from scratch tomorrow, so wish me luck. it'll be a pomegranate/chipotle/mango based sauce.
if it works out as imagined, i'll post a recipe.
