I woke up the other morning inexplicably ravenous. My lunch was extreme: a gigantic salad with falafel and kale; leftover potatoes I made the night before (parboiled and then fried in a cast iron skillet with butter, cumin, smoked paprika and herbs de provence, until they were golden brown and mouthwatering); leftover guacamole from the night before; and three beverages (water, tangerine juice, coffee).
I roasted a chicken last night and it was a divine, decadent success. More on that soon.
Reading AL Kennedy ‘Paradise.’ Darkly hilarious and deeply revelatory.
I also heard that Nicole Holofcener has a new film out this year! I watched ‘Friends With Money’ on the Lifetime Movie Network (aka LMN) with my mom the other day and was reminded how I like her female anti-heroes aka normal people. As far as Hollywood treacle goes, it’s pretty great. I love how Holofcener says she never gets ‘tired of looking at her face,’ when speaking of muse Catherine Keener.
