It's hard to believe no one's replied to this thread since January! Lately, my wife and I have been trying our hand at making sorbet. The best sorbet I ever tasted was a pear sorbet, so that's the first I tried to make. It was pretty bad, tasted like canned pears (yuk!). After that was a concord grape that was crazy good. My wife, who used to work at Nestle, wanted a chocolate sorbet. We bought some great 60% cocoa chocolate bars at Vivianos on the Hill and set out to try our hand. BIG success, maybe the most chocolatey thing I've ever tasted.
Other than those, it's usually pastas made with whatever is in the vegetable bin in the fridge, or a risotto with mushrooms, lemon zest and parmesan. All of which explains why we're still enrolled at Jenny Craig.
Ooooh, some new things for me to look into as well! I really like the new Decemberists, so far, but I need to delve deeper. I've said it before, but I'm very impatiently waiting for Radiohead to finally get their latest out. Hopefully it won't be too far into the year before it's released.
In fact I re-did my iPod's playlist this morning, so today it was Ojos de Brujo, Stevie Wonder, WPA, Elvis Perkins, Magical Mystery Tour, Wilco, and Beastie Boys. But I love these discussions because I will now go listen to all these new records you all are listening to!
been listening to the new Over The Rhine record and randomly popped in the latest CD by The Innocence Mission into the car CD player last week. The iPod has been featuring the Elvis Presley gospel record, Quincy Jones, Taj Mahal, Paul McCartney, Zero 7, Swing Out Sister, and Karrin Allyson
