I've been in a bit of a funk for the past few days- doing that thing where you replay all the stupid things you did and said and wait for the shame, regret, and humiliation to dry up. Unfortunately, nothing could really get me out of my gloom - not music, rest, movies, or sweets. I spent most of my weekend in bed, avoiding the world (and catching up on the 18 hours of sleep I missed while in San Diego last week). One small bright patch in my Sunday was trying out some new recipes.
I ignored the fact that it was 90 degrees this weekend, and focused on the fact that Autumn is finally here! Both of the new recipes I tried involved pumpkin, which got me really in the mood.
|pumpkin risotto - recipe found here|
|pumpkin spice crème brûlée (my first time using a torch!), recipe found here|
|roasted asparagus aka my favorite late night snack|
This too shall pass.
