Happy friday, friends. I’m finding myself in a strange vortex of nonstop work periodically interrupted by a few hours of sleep. Such schedule, I fear, is not sustainable in the long term. Seventeen hour workdays are not, by and large, healthy over a long term. Between recipe testing and recipe editing and starting work on a new book, I’ve forgotten what a weekend looks like. Tomorrow is a marathon testing day and Sunday I’ll be helping Andrew Scrivani out (because who needs a day to rest – certainly not I).
The worst part of being so overworked is accidentally forgetting an expensive, perishable ingredient in your fridge and finding it in time to throw it out? Those cockles you see up above? That was the second batch. The first sat in the refrigerator for a few days until it got slightly funky and sad looking. Luckily, our fish store is a few blocks away, but still – I hate wasting food.
Anyway, work-related fatigue aside, I have some good links for you today. I’ve set aside some recipes too – I just need to find some time to test and shoot them. And until I am done testing this book, that will be a challenge. With February 1 deadline looming, I’m doing all I can to make this book happen on time.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and, unlike this lady, get some well-deserved rest.
