Dude, Tom. Get off the counter, that's where the clean dishes go!
Ratatouille, done just like in the movie! It was so, SO good. I let mine hang out in a warm oven accidentally for 2 hours after it was all cooked (didn't have time to eat it after taking it out of the oven, so I put it back in on "warm" to keep it warm for when I was ready) and Hello! It got all caramelized and amazingly reduced. I liked it even better that way than when I took a bit when first pulling it out of the oven.
Technically, that is a cutting board. Also not a good place for a cat!
Almond butter, homemade. I made mine un-raw by toasting the nuts in the oven a bit. And then I added salt. (Julia, remember that little girl on Letterman years ago? What did she say, 'Sometimes I like to put cucumbers on it'? =P)
That's my guy Tom. Too big to fit anywhere =)
I'll leave you with this, last night's sunset. Just as if angels had painted it.
