guess who is sick again! yay! FUNNNNNN!
monstergirl’s lesbo perfumes arrived.
she mixed them for me, and they smell great, i think i like the limes des buros slightly more.
right at home in cougar corner.
now it’s no secret that i sweat like a fucking pig so i decided to finally give this clinical stuff a whirl and at $8.49 it BETTER WORK! haha i just picked up on the secret/it’s no secret connection.
and it does, but, it’s either the scent i chose or this stuff smells reminiscent of nair, no jokes guy. i am pumped to be globbing the most extreme of alzheimer’s bait on my arms now yes, when i lose my memory in the future and it’s dementia party time, we can all fondly look back on this blog post.
now on to dinner, we did this recipe but i forgot about the rosemary and in lieu of radicchio we used belgian endives (less bitter turns out, and was a total fluke cos we didn’t know what radicchio looks like). we also didn’t do the calamari part of this dish, we don’t have a bbq.
calls for 8 baby leeks but loblaws only carries these massive guys, parboil ‘em for a few minutes in salt water to get the starch toughness out of them (and to get the ball rolling).
hot chorizo sausage for the dressing.
throw it in hot olive oil and cook ’til the fat renders out (whatever that fucking means) and then add chopped garlic, mix it around for 30 seconds then remove from heat, add three tablespoons of balsamic and squeeze half a lemon on top. that’s your warm dressing and it will give your boner a boner.
cos of no bbq we did a baking sheet with tin foil, you put the leeks in first and dress them in olive oil and salt, brown on both sides, then you add the fennel, dry, brown both sides then cover in the endives (or radicchio) to wilt.
take out the leeks if they got too burny like ours did still, they taste fantastic, like crispy potato chips, on the ends.
drink some scotch and diet coke cos you are on a diet and want to destroy the universe. this took a lot longer to do the veg because of the lack of bbq grill.
mix it all together in a big bowl.
use the spriggy grass airy fairy shit from the fennel as garnish.
i liked it more than fil, i think had i remembered the rosemary he would have dug it more. all in all it is good to try new things, next time i think we’ll avoid the fennel and do it with mesclun greens.
