I heart Nigella

This is from an interview Nigella Lawson did with NPR.

Well, I think that a fridge that has just little bowls of leftovers - you feel this is a home, people live here, and there's always the wherewithal to eat, whether it's standing up by the refrigerator or by some alchemy of turning these leftovers into another meal. And I love that feeling. I like - I hate waste, and I think using up leftovers makes me feel that I cook, whereas, cooking with ingredients from scratch sometimes doesn't give quite the same satisfaction.

Winter Guacamole

I made guacamole with pomegranate seeds instead of tomatoes.


Actually pretty good. The tart little crunchy seeds were a nice contrast to the smooth creamy avocado.
