Kitchen Time Desperately Needed…

Okay, so I have been extremely busy with the lawyerin’ of late, which is good as the SLF household needs the money. [Side note? Not all lawyers are wealthy. I think people would be shocked to know what your average associate makes in these parts.  Partners make a lot of money – in my experience, anywhere between 3 and 8 times what the associates are making. And in my world, I collect roughly one billed hour for every 8 or 9 worked. I am not complaining, just trying to correct the myth that all lawyers are evil, bloodsucking, and rolling in dough.]  I will reserve the tirade on clients that do not pay for another post; suffice it to say, I am beyond sick of it at this point.  So, between the working and being sick for the last week, I am in severe need of some kitchen time.    Tonight I plan to rectify that with a nice, homey dinner:  roast beef with dijon-caper sauce, fingerling potatoes with brussels sprouts, mini thyme popovers, and maybe some brownies or something for dessert.  Until then, feast your eyes on my lovely tomatoes:


Mmmmmm...homegrown tomatoes rule!

    Dinner was awesome! You have single-handedly revived the Brussel Sprout … and the mini (and maxi) popovers are TO DIE FOR!
