No recipes this week...3 weeks of radiology and counting means I have all but lost my will to live. Doesn't mean I'm quite ready to give up my food though ;) So for all you like-minded people out there, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jR9JpX7oA9A&feature=related Click it, watch it, thank me later.
I personally think Anthony Bourdain is one of the most delicious men around....there's something about that raw, unadulterated passion.. albeit slightly masochistic..considering some of the things he's willing to put in his mouth....I did not think his shows could get any better...honestly, sexy host, gorgeous gorgeous food and those tantalizing night markets......that is.. until No Reservations: Food Porn. All that culinary magic...the bold displays of creativity and technique..the blatant worshipping of the kind of solace one can only find in a bowl of perfectly stewed broth....and oh my god the dishes served up.....much much better than sex....and even that, is an understatement.
On a completely unrelated note, it is the weekend, and should you find an extra orange lying around and that bottle of honey that is a tablespoon shy of being completely empty.....do what I do, and turn it into a face mask.
Orange and honey mask
Juice of half an orange
1. Add enough honey to the juice to get a syrupy, slightly tacky mixture.
2. Apply to clean, scrubbed face. [ It can get messy, but it's a small price to pay for good skin. Just keep a towel nearby]
3. Put on some nice music and let it dry for about 10-15 minutes
4. Rinse off and moisturize as usual.
I love this mask~there's no chemically gunk, it smells divine,doesn't exactly cost much.....It's food, really...for your skin. And your skin will love you for it;)
