Cookbook? What Cookbook?

Did I say I was going to write a cookery book? I think I just might have.  Only the start of that project feels very long ago.  But now that I've gotten into the groove of my ping pong pizza shoppe schedule, it's time to get back to work.

And it's a brand new month.  I love that.  Fresh clean start.  So today I worked on my food writing and you know what?

It feels pretty damn good.

Today I baked banana mini muffins with Ghirardelli chocolate.  I wish you could smell my kitchen right now because it's heaven.  And the muffins themselves are super duper moist.  I keep sticking my nose in the container to take a whiff.  Only each time I do, I eat one.

I should probably stop doing that.

I also worked on another draft of organic brown orzo and homemade cream of chicken sauce.  It's not ready for the book but it's coming along and I'm enjoying the draft writing.

If you want to give the organic brown pasta a try, click Delallo Pasta, and you'll get a dollar off coupon.  They even make white pasta, for those interested.

Near me, this imported pasta runs upwards of 3 bucks a bag.  Too rich for my blood.  But thanks to a local store sale and a dollar coupon, I scored them for a buck a bag.

Not too shabby.

Cheers & boogie boogie.
