Lasagna and Cookie

Last Saturday was my first attempt at making lasagna. I followed this recipe, recommended to me by both my coworker and punchfork (which I’ve become a fan of).  Another weekend ago I made braised fruited lamb shank which was probably more photogenic but alas, no photo (I had a friend over and I didn’t want to make him wait setting up the camera and tripod and arranging the scene; I just can’t seem to take a quick snapshot with my fantsy-pants camera).  Anyway, with the amount of cheese and meat I put in this bad boy, I would hate to see its nutritional info. It was also the first time I used a dutch oven for the meat sauce.  It was my roommates and I’m thinking his cost a pretty penny. I’ve never handled a piece of cooking wear so delicately.  I must have soaped and washed that thing five times after it was clean before putting it back in its box. On a totally random note, here’s a photo of my roommate’s girlfriend’s dog named Cookie (wearing a pooh suit for the winter months).  If you ever want to be a chef who makes food that gets longing mouthwatering glares, this is the dog to get.

Her name is cookie

    Looks good cos — coincidentally, I made lasagne last night for the first time too! I used a recipe out of Thomas Keller’s French Laundry book which was, unexpectedly, simple (in the staff meal section). The dog comment made me laugh out loud.

    Cool! I’ve been finding it surprisingly fun to cook, especially for people, probably because the kitchen where I live is well stocked and arranged. I always hear about that Thomas Keller guy… maybe I’ll give him a shot one day.
