Working in a restaurant for the last few months has made me realize that this is what makes me happy, so I might as well do it, everyone else seemed to take the news a lot better than I did. An "oh yeah, well good, we thought you would all along" kind of reaction that leaves me (the person on the receiving end of the paycheck) a little stunned. I guess I don't need to prove myself to the world as much as I thought I did, and now it is time for me to be happy. Hence a celebration in simplicity, with my Pike Place Market hoard of yummies:
One Summery Caprese Salad Celebration!
Fresh, Dewy Basil
The Best Mozzarella I could get my hands on (its not buffalo though, I am not that rich)
A Loving Drizzle of E.V.O.O (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
Fleur de Sel
Course Ground Pepper
I actually did a taste test on the Heirloom vs Vine Ripened, and the course ground pepper to the ashy dust that I get from my pepper grinder, and I have to say, the kid makes sense, if you can get your hands on the stuff, do so because it is much much tastier, even if it isn't fresh ground.
