Random Saturday Night Cooking Thread

A few things


1.) All Americans should be taught how to make a vinaigrette. 

2.) Fresh pasta > Box pasta. It's criminal that I had to learn this at thirty-five years of age. The education system in this country sucks.

3.) If I weren't so lazy I'd make more caesar salads. I love a good one. But I'm too lazy too make the dressing every time. The vinaigrette keeps. I strongly suspect that the caesar won't.

4.) Lately the fam has been ODing on fresh pineapple. I think our carbon foot-print must be the size of Queens.

4.) I have a red velvet cupcake awaiting me this evening. I am happy.

So how goes it my fellow family chefs? Holla if you hear me...

More: Yes this really is random. One should cleanse the palate after arguing about Newt all day.

Ta-Nehisi Coates is a national correspondent at The Atlantic, where he writes about culture, politics, and social issues. He is the author of the memoir The Beautiful Struggle. More

Born in 1975, the product of two beautiful parents. Raised in West Baltimore -- not quite The Wire, but sometimes ill all the same. Studied at the Mecca for some years in the mid-'90s. Emerged with a purpose, if not a degree. Slowly migrated up the East Coast with a baby and my beloved, until I reached the shores of Harlem. Wrote some stuff along the way.
