Kabocha Curry with Spinach, Chickpeas, & Farro

Friends. I have things I want to tell you about. Big things. So major that I’ve been staring at these photos for over a week, unable to find common ground between all the news I want to share and this unexciting (albeit delicious) bowl of curry. And that’s why half my news will have to wait. Until I make a cake. One that may involve booze and pink frosting.

The other half, I’ll share now.

Curry-Spiced Kabocha Gnocchi with Roasted Cauliflower & Sriracha-Coconut Crème Fraîche

Curry-Spiced Kabocha Gnocchi with Roasted Cauliflower & Sriracha-Coconut Crème Fraîche

There are too many words in this post title. I’ve made peace with that fact. (It’s just that THEY’RE ALL IMPORTANT, you know? [P.S. I compromised and left "cilantro" out of the title. But that's in there too, guys. And it's important. I also pan-fried the gnocchi, but I think the photos say that clearly enough. Plus you regular readers know I ALWAYS pan-fry my gnocchi and ravioli, so that's probably just assumed at this point. Do you like it when parenthetical text makes up most of a paragraph? I do. It's kind of like the sidebar of the blog world.])

In the sense that I feel I’ve grown enough as a photographer and a writer to re-pay homage to a dish, because I believe I can do it more justice now. Or something like that. Anyway. Let’s talk about sauce. Made from zucchini!

Roasted Carrots with Lime Quinoa & Cinnamon–Brown Sugar Chickpeas

Roasted Carrots with Lime Quinoa & Cinnamon–Brown Sugar Chickpeas

I’ve been having one of those weeks where I feel really out of touch. I blame most of it on last week’s heat wave, which pretty much rendered me useless mentally and physically. The heat finally broke Friday night, and I got to enjoy a fun-filled weekend with my friend Nicole. We went to nearly all of my favorite food and drink spots in the area, and I got to try my hand at some fashion-y photos too. (I won’t even pretend to be anywhere near as good as her usual photographer, Clint Mejia. But it was a very fun experience!) Yesterday meant a return to reality, which translates to unanswered comments and emails, along with a daunting list of unread posts in my rss feed and a silent-for-days Pinterest account. Nicole and I spent a lot of time laughing about our “first world problems” this weekend, so yeah, it seems the theme continues. But now, it stops, and we can talk about food instead.
