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...

I thought maitre d'hotel butter had little bits of chopped up maitre d' in it? (heh - kidding!)

And yeah...Zoi looks like she's either about to start crying, or has just finished crying. boo hoo.

And she SO doesn't have anything to cry about - she's the one who gets to "touch" her girlfriend if she wants!

Unless she's continuously crying b/c she's realizing that she's not really a creative chef.
