Sometimes planning the weekend can be complicated. The social part of me loves city life, and I am always trying to make my country life filled with more city life things. My husband on the other hand craves all things country due to his city life kinda job. A bonfire with friends may be his favorite thing to do with his free time. Me, not so much. Give me culture, fine food and a good glass of wine with a reason to dress up and I am a happy camper. This is why I long for financial windfalls that would allow us to have an apartment in the city, a free babysitter, and a grocery store that sells ramps, oxtail, sheep's milk ricotta and frisee (and that is a modified list!).
That said, last night I made polenta topped with spicy tomato and pepper sauce topped sauteed wild shrimp. Take that you country life!
Today I am attending a free lecture at the co-op about homeopathy and swine flu. I will be sure to fill you in on the details. I will be the smiling person with a pen, notepad and lots of enthusiam in attendance. God I love being a geek at the right moments.
