A couple of days ago I was watching something on Netflix and was almost moved to tears when I saw people hugging, as I haven’t actually touched another human being since Mid-March. I don’t wish to even discuss what watching porn felt like. It’s not like I don’t love living alone, but now I do know why the bachelor uncle in the family went crazy towards the end. Think of it as too much of a good thing.
Regardless, one of those few pleasures of living alone is the fun of sharing food. It’s been a while since I’ve done that and while yes, Joey Doesn’t Share Food, one does sometimes consider the minor trade off with food for company. That being said, I genuinely hate sharing some of my favourite meals. If you’re eating with me and I’m being a bitch about serving you, it’s because I know I should share food with you but I absolutely don’t want to. Think of it as an internal struggle of epic proportions.
Now, one of the other things I miss is drinking with other people. Obviously banning liquor for two months made all of us go dry for a while, but now that alcohol is back on the menu, but once again, the same problem persists. Thankfully, we have Whatsapp and Zoom, and while it’s not the same thing, it’s better than drinking alone. It also helps that I can show my friends what I cooked because making one’s friends jealous with my cooking is one of the few pleasures left to me.
The recipe is largely the same as the gravy dish, but still makes an excellent starter. That being said, I have some drinking to do, so let’s quickly Go To The Kitchen.
