You know what discourages timely posting? When the food you've cooked isn't very photogenic. But remember I said I had big plans for my little, 1-pound eggplant? Well, I did, in fact, fulfill the plans -- making Spicy Indian Eggplant from Urban Vegan. But it's not very pretty. Still, here goes nothin'.
You know what else discourages timely posting, not to mention doing my normal amount of baking? The fact that I met a man. Ha. That's not like me. I don't do a lot of dating. I'm a pretty girl and wicked smart, but the former discourages the smart, insecure man from talking to me and the latter makes me not want the kind of men who hit on me. It's not that I swore off dating, just that I don't tend to meet anyone it seems worth dating, and the ones I have liked either don't seem to be very interested in me or they're just such wimpy wimps that they never put a move on me, and, frankly, I don't want to be the man in a relationship. So whatever. But over this past week, I've spent, like, three evenings with a guy who is maybe a little weird, but I'm cool with that, and he clearly likes me a lot and I actually like him too. I know this isn't my diary and any readers of this blog (if there are any) are much more interested in baked treats than my (lack of a) love life, but I wanted to offer this as an excuse for my non-cookie-making. It's a legitimate excuse.
