That’s right — I’m talking about all things sexy today. So, get the Ricardo Montalban voice going in your head. What? You need to practice a bit first? Ok, say it with me . . . Carrrrrne Asada. No, no, more sexy like Ricardo. Carrrrrrrrrrrrne, carrrrrrrrrrne.. . .
Ok, ok – I’m done. Let’s get back to my sexy post.
I bought something for the FIRST time yesterday. And, after the experience I had with it, I can’t figure out why in the world I didn’t make this purchase sooner in my life.
It took me awhile to find the perfect one — I stared at the selection, trying and trying to find one not too big, not too small. It was like I was Goldilocks — just a little less blonde and a little less naive. And, definitely not in a Bear’s house.
Then, I spotted it — one the shelf, seemingly winking under the garish store lights and seductively purring, “Come over and pick ME. That’s right, baby — I’m the one for YOU.”
So, I did it. I reached out and grabbed it. Ready for a new experience.
And that luscious piece of Fennel did NOT disappoint.
Yes! I cooked with fennel last night! FENNEL! An exotic piece of vegetation that I’ve watched all the good Food Network stars use in their picture perfect, gourmet dishes. I couldn’t believe the citrusy-licorice aroma that wafted up to my nose as I cut into the white bulb. I instantly rushed over to my lazy Hubby, who was lounging on the couch, oblivious to the heavenly rapture in the kitchen.
He was impressed, albeit not as much as I was. Silly boy.
Ahh, say it with me now: Fennnnnnnnnel. Fennnnnnnnel. Don’t you just want let it roll around your mouth? It’s joined my favorite word list, right under “Cacaphony.” Lol, that word makes me laugh everytime I see it! If you want to laugh as well, try showing Cacaphony to a bunch of 9th grade students. Oh, and then throw out the word “Asinine.” Good times.
Anyway, I used fennel last night. With crisp basil and a seductive piece of salmon . . . and freshly squeezed lemon. Ahhhh. Bellisimo.
Fennel rocks and so do I.
