Something New

I went to the library today to stock up on some books. I actually had a list with me for 6 of them that I had checked out their location last night on the library website (yes, I'm a nerd, I know:) The guy at the desk was really surprised that I was checking out 16 books. Considering that I get to keep them for 21 days and I read a book a day, I'm actually 5 short. I didn't mention that to him though...hehehe.

My new discovery this week is Mozzarella Cheese, Basil and Tomato. The Italian took me to this swank restaurant in North Beach tonight and ordered this as an appetizer. The Nigerian in me was wary of trying something new that looked kinda strange but I braved it out and it was absolutely delicious.

In addition I strayed from my usual dinner fare and ordered Risotto alla Silena, or something like that. It's risotto rice with mushrooms, tomatoes and eggplant. It was divine and now I have to try the concotion in my next rice dish. As you can see, I really don't have much to say today.

Oh well.
