I'm rushing home with a carload of grocery bags filled with 822 separate ingredients for a dish I volunteered to prepare for a get-together. And why? Because it looked heavenly in a copy of Bon App'etit I swiped from the gynecologist's office earlier in the week. In the back seat sits an 11 year old who isn't talking to me because I said "no" to a sleepover.
