Ah, Thursday

I just bought the primary ingredients for the shrimp creole I'm going make for dinner tonight. It's one of T's favorite Louisiana dishes, one of mine too really so it'll be a treat. The two of us actually got to go out to lunch together today; truly, it's hard to remember the last time that happened and it was really nice. Just a quick lunch after a quick meeting, but still! I then saw that my Tuscan Bread Soup had been chosen as a Community Pick on Food52 which is always a lovely honor, and thank you to my foodie friend, boulangere, for such a kind review.

The cookie menu is in the works and even the planning has felt wildly festive. Gah- I love Christmas. Off to get the creole a'going!
