Even though the "Quick After-Work Suppers for Four" are generally made up of a main and dessert, designed to be eaten together, it appears that I didn't always follow these menus. I found that most of the desserts weren't too exciting, but that the main dishes were in general, really good (especially the non-seafood based ones). The "Reminders of and Ideas for Hasty Improvisations" were all great too.

3 chapters down, 5 to go!

Hi Sarah, I love this site - it's inspired me to try and hunt down a copy of the "How to eat" book :)

One unrelated question - where did you get your KitchenAid and how much for? I am completely jonesing for one, but ebay prices seem to be sitting at around $400!

Btw, congratulations on completing 3 chapters of what I hear is a fairly mammoth book!
