After struggling in Christmases past to get the appropriate doneness on large (and absurdly expensive) cuts of meat, my father swore off prime rib this year and suggested I come up with some solution. Never fear! Rack of lamb is here! An excellent cut of meat that can be prepared in under an hour, and despite the fact that you didn’t slave over a hot stove all day long, your guests will still be wildly impressed with tasty, melt in your mouth goodness.
Sound like a plan? Follow me!
Greetings all! At last I, the mysterious roommate, forced by my Christmas break separation from my dearest room/blogmate, have decided to take matters into my own hands and share with you all what I’ve been cooking up this holiday season. While still in New York, my lovely roommates and I hosted (in my opinion) a most excellent Hanukkah replete with Jewish goodies of every kind (i.e. Challah, Latkes, a cake shaped and frosted like a dreidel). But, alas, all photographic documentation of said event lies on my roommates’ camera, and since we are no longer located in the same apartment, it is much more difficult for me to goad her into making a blog post.
SO – Onward to Christmas!
So, it’s been a while. Sorry about that. But in a world where we have constant deadlines for papers and problem sets, some things get put off. BUT, WE’RE BACK! My roommate made this dish a while back, but we can’t quite remember why. We watched I Love You, Man while we ate our meal, but Chicken and Corn Chowder really have nothing to do with that movie. But we do love Paul Rudd. Really, since he did Clueless, he’s forever a heartthrob for our generation. You know, the nerdy, funny heartthrob. Also, Jason Segel = hilarious. When he’s wearing Uggs, I DIE. OF LAUGHTER. So WATCH IT. It’s hilarious. (I hope my rather excessive use of caps tells you how great this movie is.)
Read about our Chowder after the jump…
My roommate and I are currently entering midterm hell. [Full Disclosure: she has had midterms all through the month of October and MY hell is coming up at the moment… for the next two weeks.] So the blog will be a little sparse until we emerge victoriously from midterms. We do have several awesome posts lined up (soups, baked goods, kitchen gadgets) that we can not wait to share with y’all.
In the meantime, entertain yourselves by checking out some of the blogs we read (they’re on the blog roll on the side of our blog). Until then, we’ll be looking like these people…
