i'm pretty sure i should be ashamed of this, but i have been having a secret love affair with intermezzo over the past month. probably because i never have anything to eat in my house and all i ever want to eat anymore is salad.

i'm also strangely obsessed with tapioca pudding. i've had it three times in the past three weeks--one cocount and two vanilla.

i think the next thing i'll make at home will be a big pot of meaty, spicy chili (with painted hills beef. it's my new favorite beef. so marbled, so good. and i talked to the rancher--it's a pretty awesome operation). and garlic bread. anyone want to come over?
