My best friend from childhood, Beth, came up from Florida this weekend to visit. Beth is the kind of friend that requires very little when she visits – her only request was to stay the majority of the time in sweatpants and to cook a lot – this was of course not difficult as that is how most of my weekends are spent in the winter!
We spent half the day shopping for groceries on Saturday – jumping from Earth Fare to Harris Teeter (twice) and Giacamo’s Italian Market (where we also had a delicious lunch). We embarked on cooking around 2:00pm and didn’t get done until nearly 11:00pm! Two batches of garlic confit, one large pot of spaghetti bolognese and a huge flat of tiramisu later – we crashed hoping to sleep well and dream of Anthony Bourdain.I’ll post the recipes and the craziness of the long weekend this week.
