i'm pretty damn good at quite a few things...
like being loud, wearing black, laughing till i snort, busting balls, shopping, playing guitar hero and drinking whiskey like an old man.
but there's one thing that i'm really good at that i don't talk nearly enough about here on the plum and that's cooking.
i'm a really good cook.
from an elaborate/complicated 12 layer cake, to my "famous" mandarin orange almond salad, and don't even get me started on the things i can do with feta cheese, to scrambled eggs - i just have a knack for cooking.
seriously though, you should try my scrambled eggs, they're amazing - breakfast anyone?
for cooking being something i genuinely enjoy (there's nothing better than seeing a bunch of happy, full dinner guests), it's something i don't do nearly enough.
between work, blogging, events, happy hours and working out i never have time for the whole have my friends over for dinner thing.
and i would like that to change.
so i've decided that i'm going to cook dinner for my friends twice a month, different groups of friends, different numbers of people, different themes, but it's going to happen twice a month.
i'll then precede to document what i make, and who i make it for here on the blog - it's going to be fun.
i like cooking, i like eating, i like my friends, and i like that fact that soon i'll be able to sit on my deck, eating the said food i just cooked, with said friends.
don't forget the wine.
so who am i cooking for first? shall i make a schedule? ha.
