For some reason, a few weeks ago I took pictures of my cooking workweek: two hectic days of hardcore cooking (lest you think I only work two days a week—horrors!—those are followed by one day off for recovery, two days of chocolate work, one day of paperwork, and another day off if everything goes well).
I love the pretty morning kitchen light.
Puttanesca sauce with fresh broccoli, fava beans, and spinach fettuccine
Miso-glazed peas and carrots
Koshari – Middle Eastern lentils and rice with elbow noodles, roasted heirloom tomato sauce, and crispy onions—and the last of the homemade paprika
White bean and rosemary soup with greens, or something like that, I can’t quite remember the actual title
Mixed lettuces with cocoa-spiced almonds and reduced balsamic vinaigrette with chives
African yam and groundnut (peanut) stew with millet
Green beans with shredded coconut and mustard seeds, which I completely forgot to take pictures of.
Strawberry shortcake with biscuits
Doesn’t this strawberry look like a mouse, or a bear, or something?
