Yesterday my mom loaned me her library copy of Suzanne Goin’s Sunday Supper at Lucques. *   So, for dinner tonight we started out with Avocado and Citrus salad with green olives.

cut the hearts out of some oranges or tangerines, a lime or two, and mix with a tablespoon of minced shallots, a teaspoon of red wine vinegar, another of lemon juice, a quarter cup of olive oil, a half cup of pitted good green olives, and some micro greens or frisee or watercress. mix it all up and then spoon it over a half of an avocado, sliced and salted and peppered. add a few drops of sriracha for color. serve on a big, chilled, white plate.


The main course was grilled mahi-mahi in a lemon-zest, thyme, salt and pepper rub. Seared quick and served over a bed of arugula, with a roasted beet salad and horseradish creme fraiche.


Shit, it were good enough.


For dessert, mango sorbet with a blackberry sauce and mint garnish.


Even the wild woman of borneo ate it all up and called it good.


Well, shit howdy.


I am fallen in love with good cooking. I never did think it could happen to me.

But, damn.


What I think I might be good at is looking at something and just knowing it will be good to eat. I hardly ever make a recipe that isn’t any good. If it looks good to me, it usually tastes pretty damn wonderful.

I don’t know.


I am having a hell of a time at it, regardless.
