the first thing i did in my new year of life was wake up much too early and have a huge punk-rock breakfast, courtesy of elliot. punk-rock cooking is his specialty. (throw a bunch of stuff in, never measure, never pre-taste, and it always rocks.)
the second thing i did was learn how to shoot an arrow from a bow. elliot surprised me with a lesson at the local archery club, where we took the beginner’s class alongside a snooty 6-year-old from an “archery family.” (didn’t know there were such things.) after just 30 minutes of practice, we participated in a shooting contest. and despite having a miserable cold, elliot won me a big, fat turkey! it is currently in my freezer crushing the bag of peas and mochi ice cream.
