Because I impressed the hell out of myself by making asparagus soup from stratch last Saturday. Yes, from stratch - including the chicken stock. That’s right, I boiled a chicken carcass for 3 hours, skimming and stirring like a thing posessed, all in aid of the perfect soup. And it was worth it, for it was delicious.
I also made some fantastic low-fat individual blueberry cheesecakes. which had the added advantage of being incredibly easy to make but which, when turned out onto to a plate and arranged prettily with a blob of ice cream and a sprinkling of fresh blueberries, looked really rather fancy.
What have you done lately that made you feel like a domestic god/goddess?
