I’m going to need a day to digest the Fancy Food Show.
In the meantime, I thought I’d present you with this Lemon Souffle Pudding.
I often think of myself as a mash up of the time I’ve spent in the world so far. In essence I feel like a messy concoction of parents, siblings, friends from kindergarten, mean girls from high school, various low paying jobs, and different cities. I am all of those things. Whether or not I acknowledge it every day, I am who I am as a direct result of all of many people, many places and many experiences. So far it feels like a pretty sweet gig.
I got to thinking about the sum of my life’s parts yesterday on a plane from Oakland back to Los Angeles. Plane rides, no matter how short, force me to quickly assess my life situation.
My quick flash assessment went a little something like this in my brain:
Lindsey, Michelle and Beth were the best girlfriends I could have had in elementary school. I’m glad I became best friends with the smart girls.
I kinda feel bad about treating my prom date the way I did. Maybe I should Facebook him.
I’m really glad I got to see my parents renew their vows. That brought a lot of good to my world.
Simon. I’m so glad Simon and I stumbled upon each other.
If this plane crashes… God, please don’t let this plane crash… I’d feel like I’ve had a pretty good run. Thanks. Seriously.
If this plane crashes… God please don’t let this plane crash… I wonder if the lady sitting next to me would hold my hand … but only if the plane were crashing… otherwise, I don’t really need to hold her hand.
Should I order ginger ale or cranberry juice when they come around for drink orders?
Jill gave me the most gorgeous lemons and they’re waiting for me at home.
Lara made the most amazing lemon pudding the other night. I want more.
Oh God… the plane is taking off! I hope we’re nowhere near a flock of geese. Seriously. I don’t think I like river landings.
