eat that, julia child!

Latest cooking adventure: tarragon chicken.  From Mastering the Art of French Cooking.  Yes yes.

properly trussed and browned on the stovetop

absorbing flavors from onions and carrots... and butter.  lots of butter.

finished!

after an hour and fifteen minutes in the oven, finished!

The sauce was sooo good.  It was left from the chicken, then had chicken and beef broths added, reduced, and was pretty good.  I think roasted chicken just isn’t that exciting as a food, but the sauce was fantastic.

I spent the day finishing a paper and promptly thereafter escaping to Federal Hill.  The weather’s really starting to get nice.  And Federal Hill is great.  I got a Slurpee, really good pizza, and Kinder chocolates.  Hazelnuts with chocolate is one of the most brilliant food pairings ever.

And Pokemon Mystery Dungeon (the Explorers of Darkness incarnation) is really awesome, at least so far.  I totally don’t care about the mediocre reviews.  I love Pokemon.  I love RPGs.  How could a Pokemon RPG be bad?  Couldn’t.  Isn’t.  I’m a Munchlax.  Look at how adorable he is!  (He’s not the yellow one…)  It just makes me squeal inside with delight.  (Yeah, maybe it is kind of sick.)

    And I thought that French cooking was just meat and milk.

    Some things never change. you always liked pokemon. RPGs? surely not the rocket launchers favored by terorists.
