I know, I know, Americans are exceptional, and will do it correctly, unlike the unexceptional, bumbling Venezuelans. Let’s be like the idealized and whiter Swedes and not like these darker-skinned folks who just aren’t doing it right.

Cooking Together

Klara and I cooked together for the first time! We made pizza. The tomato chunks are a bit uneven, and she went a little stingy on the pepperoni. But I always had a dream of us cooking together, and now we did.

On Saturday, I will teach her how to make portobello mushroom steaks for a vegetarian guest at our weekend dinner party.

Couldn’t have said it any better.
