And thusly, with an errant photograph of garlic, have you been snookered.
You know what the saddest part is? I HAVE all the ingredients for last night’s Smackdown, duxelles-stuffed chicken legs with Supreme sauce, potatoes and haricots verts from The Professional Chef. Last night, as we know, I passed out in a drug-induced stupor and was unable to complete the task.
Tonight I left work at ten to five, in plenty of time to cook and maybe even take some photos with actual real daylight. And then? I DIDN’T WANT TO DO IT. Because I am now in the first hours of a 2-week vacation, and as soon as I left the office I got all, like, “FUCK OBLIGATIONS.” Even obligations that are technically fun.
So we went out for French food. And it was GOOD. I felt kinda guilty, until I remembered that THIS IS MY DAMN BLOG.
The kicker: At dinner, Brian says, “I wanted to cook the meal, but I didn’t want you to feel like you had to write,” and I say, “I wanted to write, I just didn’t want to cook the dinner.”
And then O. Henry spun. But whatever, that duck confit salad with white beans and sherry vinaigrette was frigging GOOD.
Stay tuned for a week or two of TNS relocation to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, its yearly migration, and all the barbeque that entails. But until I get there? FUCK THAT SHIT, YO.
Looking forward to your Outer Banks BBQ reporting
Eh, fair enough. Nothing worse than feeling a slave to one’s blog. Also: Gorgeous looking garlic!
Have yourself a Fine Time!
Have fun! Eat some extra BBQ for me; I’m originally from NC, and still maintain after all the years I’ve been away that NC BBQ is the nectar of the gods 🙂
I’m so glad you’re on vacation…..I totally agree with fucking obligations…..enjoy….
Good on you; enjoy the Outer Banks! Love it there myself 😀
Bring your butt to NC and have OODLES of fun and relaxation!!
O. Henry & de Maupassant were probably spinning in unison. And the imagery just made me shudder.
Mmm, duck confit. Duck confit is like the bacon of poultry: it makes everything better.
Enjoy NC & your BBQ odyssey!
You are forgiven. Whereabouts in the Outer banks?
Now, that’s synergy if I do say so myself — you two crack me up!
Missed your smackdown, but duck confit?? Doesn’t that more than make up for just about ANY sin??
