Also I like to show off my cooking skills. I am trying to brand myself as the "one who cooks" amongst my friends.
Will I look back at this moment later and think this is the day I officially became staid and boring?
I think it is more likely that I will look back and haughtily congratulate myself Bridget-Jones-style for creating something beautiful and edible in "manner of Martha Stewart or similar." Eat those tomatos while summer is still here!
