Thinking The Inedible: The Plan As It Now Stands (Cooking For My Family, Part 2)


Ok, it’s 1:16 AM and I am in my living room watching a cheesecake cool.

You see tonight I made dessert for tomorrow night. I am planning ahead. Sarah Moulton would be so proud.

I made a cheesecake from a Wolfgang Puck book I skimmed through today at the bookstore. The cheesecake is called “Cookies and Cream Cheesecake” and it looks phenomenal. Well except for the whole “I didn’t use a water bath because mom doesn’t have a roasting pan and now the top is all cracked and puffy and scary looking” factor. But, again, the ingredients are scrumptious so how can it taste bad? Report to follow.

Otherwise, I have my soup planned: Butternut Squash and Apple Soup with Bacon.

Now I’m just trying to figure out the main course and the sides. Thank you all for your kind suggestions. But I think I need to do this on my own. It’s a growing up kind of thing. Time I became a man–a man who makes butternut squash soup.

I wish I’d brought my camera wires, I could show you my cheesecake. As it stands, I’ll use dad’s camera tomorrow to take pictures of the dinner and then write all about it before I go to bed. Unless my family stones me because the food tastes so bad. Wish me luck!
