i am so domestic

yesterday at the grocery store i was feeling bored and frustrated with eating only frozen peas and egg white omelettes day in and day out, so I got a cookbook and a fancy all-clad casserole/oven-safe skillet. Oh, the wonders of pots and pans that don't come from Ikea!

Last night I made chicken braised in red wine with shallots, rosemary, and thyme and had two friends over for dinner -- it was so nice to eat a real meal with other people for a change. I think we're all going to try to do it more often.

Then he and I decided to get all Film Noire-d out, he in a fedora and pinstripe suit, me in a pencil skirt and red lipstick, to go down and see The Thin Man at the theatre downtown -- but alas, Moviefone lied to us, and the theatre was actually closed on Mondays. Alas. Instead we went to this terrible bar that was playing the Dave Matthews band -- it was like being back in Princeton. This is the same place that makes mojitos with sprite. Shudder. THen we came back and watched Girl on The Bridge, which was brilliant, just brilliant.

All in all, a good evening. THough, needless to say, no work got done...
