Why I like my mother-in-law

Two posts! In one day! And me all sick and shit. See how much I love you guys?

This is why I like my mother-in-law. She gave me this for Christmas. It arrived today.



I love Anthony Bourdain - seriously, as in if he knocked at my door, TCBIM would be sleeping in the car. If you don't have this cookbook yet, go buy it. The introduction is hysterically funny and it's the only time I've ever, ever seen the words "sweet fuck all" between the covers of a cooking tome.

Bourdain rocks! I stole this cookbook from my dad, and refuse to give it back. Not that he minds... I make the creme brulee recipe at least twice a month - and the whole family gets to enjoy it! (I love recipes that begin with: "Pour a quart of heavy cream into a saucepan." This is the best creme brulee recipe I have ever used.)
Enjoy the book!

Do they sell Sweet Fuck All at the Piggley Wiggley? Do I need a tablespoon or a m'ther f*cking b*ttload?
Heh.

HEY!!!!!! I just got that book in the mail on Saturday!!

You've got to read "Nasty Bits" which I believe is his latest book. (and if you haven't already, "Kitchen Confidential" is another must read).

I absolutely love him and his show on the Travel network.

I can't wait to start on his recipes. I love everything about the guy.

Christel - I'll have to try the creme brulee. I've never made that before, but I love it.

otj - heh. I think you have to go to Harris Teeter for sweet fuck all. It's a specialty item.

Shannon - I have two copies of Kitchen Confidential. I thought I'd lost mine, so I bought another one. I haven't read The Nasty Bits yet, but I plan on buying that one next.

cat - I'm convinced that my stepmother does that. It's become a joke at this point - let's see what awful thing P foists on us this year.

First, I saw him on Top Chef, and now you are talking about him. I think it is a sign!

Not to be too gloaty or anything, but I interviewed him. I did. And he was sweet and humble and funny and gave all the credit to his co-workers and was sexy as hell.

I dunno why but he just does things to a girl...yikes.

Suebob - I am SO jealous.
