However, I refused to throw the baby out with the bathwater and made an epic trip to Fairway Market. After an appetizer of prosciutto and California apricots, I had a salmon fillet, white asparagus, and baby spinach cooked with Shitake mushrooms and onion.

I looked up this recipe I saw on The Chew and made the salmon. I like my salmon a little more rare so next time I am going to cook the skin side for 4 minutes, but only cook the meat side for 1 - 2 minutes instead of the recommended 3 - 4 minutes. I swore I would NEVER watch The Chew because it replaced by beloved All My Children, but it's actually kind of interesting. It's like Rachel Ray, minus the God awfulness of Rachel Ray.
I bought white asparagus because there was no green asparagus. I prepared it the same way as I normally do. I place all of the asparagus in an oven-safe dish, drizzle olive oil over it, add salt and pepper, and squeeze half a lemon over it. Then I place it in an oven preheated to 425 degrees for 10 minutes.

Would someone please come and clean up my kitchen?
Speaking of monogamy, on Saturday evening I was sort of asked (more like implicitly directed) to entertain someones roommate. Since I had a birthday party to make an appearance at up at Dorrian's, I asked him to accompany me. And we saw a bride.
I've asked this fine man to make sure that he shoots me if he ever sees or hears that I showed up to Dorrian's in a wedding gown. That girl just started off her marriage the worst way possible. Shame, shame on her.
