Brass Tacks: Taxing Taxes. Ack!

Well I’m putting off doing my taxes, so I’ve decided to make risotto. Not even risotto for me, but for some friends of mine who recently had a baby. Even better from a procrastination standpoint, I need to go shopping for some ingredients. On a Saturday, when the store will be packed. See you next weekend, taxes!

I’ve been cooking a lot recently, and trying to learn new dishes that incorporate lots of vegetables. Last night I made a pretty stunning roasted vegetable pizza with broccoli, asparagus, and tomatoes. I made the sauce and everything! And I’ve discovered that I love – wait for it – brussels sprouts. Well, I love them aside from how they make my kitchen, and therefore entire apartment, smell.

And should Operation Risotto not be enough to keep the taxes away, I’ve had my SAG screener of Precious sitting in my DVD player for about 2 weeks now. I know it’s great and I should see it, but I can’t bring myself to do it. But this might be just the motivation I need. In the meantime though, I’m happily watching TLC’s “What Not To Wear,” which features actual people saying actual things like “If you want to participate in a ruffle trend…”

Happy weekend!
