Such a weird combination of French and English, isn't it?
Strange dueling languages or no, I may make some of this tonight, to accompany some sort of red meat. Or I may grill some shrimp (on the grill pan; I'm not going to force Cooper outside in the pouring rain) using the cool scented/flavored skewers my mom brought me last week.
Or we may order pizza. It's only 8:15, but wow do I not actually feel like doing anything today...
