I hope that everyone had a great weekend! Mine was action packed…literally, even, as we saw The Expendables 2 on Friday. Did it ever deliver. It was everything I was hoping it’d be. The best part was seeing it on its opening day with a group of people who all had the same idea about the movie. The entire theater laughed and yelled in unison – it was a great experience. All of those guys have still got it, especially Van Damme. That guy did not disappoint in the level or amount of roundhouse spin kicks. On Saturday, I went with my friend Valerie to see The Kills, who absolutely ruled. It was an outdoor concert on a day with absolutely gorgeous weather, so you really couldn’t ask for more. Sunday, Kramer and I slept in, caught up on Louie, and met up with some friends for drinks at The Richardson (followed, of course, by Breaking Bad).
This salad was inspired by a combination of hot days and laziness. I just didn’t feel like putting flame to food, I suppose, and besides, this red sweet corn and asparagus were both so delicious that they really didn’t need much. I shaved the asparagus paper thin, tossed everything in lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper, and served it alongside the salt-roasted salmon that I posted last week. Kramer said it was one of the best all around meals that I’ve ever made – that’s high praise, indeed.
