So, since Mardi Gras was Tuesday, I decided to make shrimp gumbo (since I couldn't find crawfish at the Ballard Market - though it was at Metropolitan Market). It's cooking ATM and it smells/tastes great so far. My boy chopped the veggies and I made roux for the first time. It wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be.

Here's the recipe: http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=249957

It says there to bake the flour and make the roux after sauteing the onions, but I just made the roux myself, even though it's much higher in fat.

Valentine's was nice. We celebrated together on Saturday by walking through the Market and getting some very fresh and delicious swordfish to cook. He made a simple marinade with lime, cilantro, white wine and garlic. It was supposed to have ginger, but we didn't have any; it was still very good though. Mashed acorn squash was the side and lots of expensive beer and a nice wine.

Sunday, after I worked, we went to a friend's house and had a potluck with nummy things. I like the Sunday potlucks a lot, it's nice to eat and drink wine with friends every week; and I'm finding that being a vegetarian and not eating wheat is easier than I thought. (One of the hosts is a vegetarian that just found out he's allergic to gluten) One wek it was just vegan and I had no idea that vegan food could be so good.

That's what's been going on. :) How dull. :)
