I've always felt that I've lacked any sort of discernible talent. I can't sing, I was an average student, I am usually late to the party rather than the life of, and any involvement in school sports simply ended in disaster. And they have yet to come up with any sort of award for chronic daydreaming. Eventually I did come up with a couple things that I like to do. I'd also like to think that I do them relatively well.
I like to revamp houses. Although that's something that's been born out of necessity, I do enjoy seeing what a place can become with the right paint, the right stain, right fixture, etc. So when I got a brand new stove and new refrigerator, combine that with my love of cooking, let's just say that the possibilities are endless.
Unfortunately, I'll have to wait until Friday. The recipe from the first book, The Foods and Wines of Spain by Penelope Casas, requires a clay pot which will arrive via postal carrier on that day. (woo-hoo!) However, once the clay pot arrives, I can jump right into the next cookbook, The Clay Pot Cookbook by Grover Sales. SO excited.
