"I am acutely aware of food, and its omnipresence is astounding." --Adam Scott

Between living with Annie McNeil, watching "Julie & Julia" the other night, and the approaching summer, I'm filled with visions of good food. It's another benefit of the arrival of warm weather...my appetite spends about a week readjusting to the new temperature trend, and then I no longer crave the carbs and red meat that haunt me during the winter months. During the summer, the only foods I think about are Mediterranean meals and fruit. And barbecues. Generally speaking, I eat so much healthier when the weather is good. Idaho will give me diabetes someday. All the more reason to move to Hawai'i.

I'm not much of a cook (yet), although I can throw together a decent grilled chicken kind of a meal. But my upcoming nuptials are inspiring me to learn. I'd like to be able to provide good food for my husband and children on a semi-regular basis. =) And Jacob, won't it be wonderful to eat food like THIS? From July onwards? (Especially this tomato/mozzarella/basil concoction...mmmm....)

That tomato/mozz/basil concoction is called caprese, and it tastes every bit as divine as it looks.

Yeah, I'd never had caprese until I moved to New York because I didn't know that mozzarella was anything but a boring pizza cheese.

But holy crap, buffalo mozzarella changed my life.

Its hard to live in New York and not eat out every night. Or do crack. Just as hard.

I'm never eating steak AGAIN if it doesn't have that star on it.
