VeganMoFo - today I cooked just for me!

it rarely happens that i cook just for me. usually i cook for the boy and me, or have friends over for dinner. or i have dinnerparties. or i cook at work. it's like, when you cook for a living, you just don't bother cooking for yourself.
but it is a shame, actually. it feels really great to put a little (or a lot) energy into cooking a meal, just for your own joy.

i've had a really bad week. actually the past two weeks have been really crappy, for reasons i won't bore you with. and today was not better. so when i got home, and just wanted to cuddle up on the sofa, with a blanket and Gossip Girl, i decided that i wanted to cook. just for me. just because i like cooking.

and i did it. let me present to you: my lunch!

Polenta with Cherry Tomato sauce, Artichoke puree and a Salad

Yum! you should do this sometime. spoil yourself a little. you deserve it.

hey lady... sorry your week was crappy I'm glad you took care of yourself! That meal looks delicious... and some of our common "abouts" made me smile... as well as your quote! Hope the rest of your week and MoFo is better! :)
