OK. I had this really cool recipe planned to post today, but alas, it will have to wait, due to a little trip I just made to the emergency room, and a bigger trip I have planned to Boston. On the small trip, all I'll say is that there is a VERY GOOD REASON for that little plastic handle thingy that they provide with your mandolin. Use it, or, you will almost certainly regret it. How many times can the doctors and nurses joke about my career as a hand model being over? More than I'd like to mention. The good news is that I should be back cooking soon enough, but the typing is a bit slow. On the big trip, I'm headed out to Boston to catch up with the lovely Bea, as well as attend the Food Styling and Photography conference at BU. It should be a fantastic few days, and of course, you'll hear all about it over on Still Life With... once it's over.
