Yep, that's me. My pink high heels match my fabulous pink dress, and being the fashion maven that I am, it ALL matches my fabulous pink oven! Whenever I cook, I try to make sure that I am, at all times, absolutely fabulous.
While I don't quite look like that tonight, I AM trying something fairly ambitious, Emeril's Sicilian-Style Beef Roulade--basically a big braciole, the big brother of the little bracioles I made a while back. There are a few twists, with hard-boiled eggs as part of the filling, and I can't wait to see how it turns out. It sure smells good! And I learned something today...even if I think I know what an unknown ingredient is, look it up before shopping! I thought I had read and heard that mortadella was a cheese, similar to provolone, so I got some provolone today. Before I started the braciole, I looked up mortadella just to be sure that provolone was comparable, and hush my mouth...it's not cheese at all, it's a bologna-type thing! I substituted thinly-sliced summer sausage for the mortadella, and I think it will probably taste just fine. But wow, lesson learned!
I'm off tomorrow, too, and after a dentist appointment in the morning, I'm sure I'll be watching CNN to see what happens with the Super Tuesday primaries. It's shaping up to be VERY interesting, especially on the Democratic side. (It's looking good for McCain on the Republican side.) The youth vote is going to be huge, the proportional allocation of delegates in the Dem primaries is huge, and the sheer passion of voters in this election is huge. Get out there and vote, folks! Indiana's primary isn't until May 5th, so we don't have much of a voice, although I wish we did. If you are lucky enough to have a voice tomorrow, please make it heard!
