Remember how I was going to make crostini and cupcakes and take pictures and start blogging again?
So I made the crostini for the potluck at my house. I did one with ricotta, shaved asparagus, and strawberries on sliced pretzel roll and the other with ricotta, shaved asparagus, and sautéed mushrooms on sliced pretzel roll. They were pretty good. I was impressed with the wide variety of dishes everyone brought. We have vegan, gluten free, pescatarian, etc. etc. etc. friends, and everyone was really conscious of that. Someone brought a lovely quinoa salad that went really beautifully with the kale salad someone else brought. There was a nice balance between junk and healthy things. And of course there was beer for days. My friend Christian brought a half-rack of La Fin Du Monde. I have no idea how we’ll drink it all, but dammit, we’ll try.
Yeah so the day after the potluck I was at my bar drinking the exBEERiment of the week before I headed further down the coast to work on a commercial when my boss from my previous job told me to pack my bags because I was coming BACK to Baltimore. And that’s what I did. I spent Friday, Saturday, and Sunday packing/drinking beer with my friends and on Monday I came back up to smelly ol’ Baltimore. I’m living in an extended stay hotel here, so eating healthy things has been a challenge. So far it’s been lots of hard-boiled eggs and hummus. I went to Trader Joe’s yesterday and got things for tuna sandwiches, PB&J, black beans & rice, and a couple frozen meals. Nothing very exciting. If I ever get back to blogging, it will mostly be about the very, very rare occasions I go out to eat. And lunches about town, since the show buys those for us.
