Ok, back to normal
Thanks to everyone who commented on my last post! I still have no idea what happened, but it was that little musical game that did it. I deleted the post and reposted it, and that worked. Strange. Oh well! And it seems to indeed have been browser specific. Next challenge: How do you host your pictures? I'm using Imageshack, but I'm not all that happy with it. I'd like a better, and preferrably more reliable solution.
I'm woozy. I spent the weekend on a ferry to Helsinki, Finland, with the people of one of the boards I'm on. We had a great time, and the food was wonderful - but there's a storm, and there were some really, really big waves tonight. I didn't get much sleep, and now that I'm off the sea, I still feel like everything's rolling.
Per comforted me with a big steaming bowl of my current favorite pasta - Pasta Bianco from Jamie's Dinners. Heaven in a bowl. Also known as silky smooth tagliatelle coated in a light sauce of butter, garlic and parmesan. That's all there is to it. No picture. I ate it all - and the kittens finished the scant leftovers. (And no, it's not a great idea to feed cats garlic! It can actually be poisonous in larger doses.)
Dinner will be guacamole and chips, also one of my very favorite things. The picture is from the last time we made it. I put a lot of coriander in my guacamole. Yum!
2 ripe avocados
handful of cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
juice of 1 lime or half a lemon
1 large bunch coriander, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, smashed
some creme fraiche
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Mash the avocados. I use a nifty handheld immersion blender. Add the garlic. Mash some more. Add the lime, the salt and the pepper. Add the tomatoes, and decide if you like the texture or if you'd like to thin it out a little bit with some creme fraiche. Finish with the coriander, and that's all there is to it. Enjoy on corn chips.
