anyhoo... blogger pisses me off in one respect. posting pics here is a trick i have yet to figure out, and that hello shit seems like a major pain.
so, if you click on the title of this post, you will be directed to a pic of my honey pie. :)
we went to the shore house over in long beach for dinner. we were going to have the traditional calzone. wen'l wanted one. that used to be "our" dinner, back when we was dead crackers po'. both of us could eat for $11, and the traditional calzone is damn tasty, and we hadn't had one in at least a year.
alas, they couldn't do pizza tonite, so they couldn't do calzone either. BOOHOO!! so, i had the pot roast sammich. wen'l had the beef melt. and i drank way too much coffee. it's a rare thing indeed for a coffee shop to have decent coffee, and they serve a lovely french roast at the shore house.
i think i had 5 cups. i'll probably be up half the night, but it was worth it.
anyhoo... i'll cook something fantabulous for dinner tomorrow and get back to posting a recipe. i need to figure out something to do with the juice of the 10 lemons i zested yesterday for limoncello. oh hey! a recipe!
limoncello (a lovely lemony digestif)
the zest of 10 lemons
4 cups vodka
2 1/2 cups sugar
3 1/2 water
place vodka and zest in a sealable jar, like a mason jar and allow to sit in a cool, dark place for 4 days. on the fifth day, place the sugar and the water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. allow to cook 5 minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool. add simple syrup to the vodka mixture and allow to stand overnight. strain through a layer of cheesecloth in a conical sieve, pressing the solids firmly. strain again through a second layer in the same manner. chill and allow to stand 1 week.
serve very cold.
