February Favourites

We’re just going to ignore the fact that it’s mid-March, okay :). I don’t have many favourites from Feb anyway as I was still enjoying January’s favourites.
Foie Gras and Chicken Liver Pâté:
I mentioned before that I went to this restaurant and had foie gras for the first time and fell in love. I don’t like the word foodie, it conjures up images of snooty kids with scarves taking pictures of their meals and I also feel like you can only be a foodie if you enjoy expensive niche food in tiny portions. I love food but I do not discriminate. I will eat anything and everything at least once. I am a mac n cheese connoisseur and pizza aficionado. But I also hold a special place in my heart for truffle oil, oysters and now foie gras. They served it in a little jar with a layer of jam on top of it and the bread that it came with had walnuts and dried fruit in it. It was amaaazing! I never thought that jam would go with liver. I, of course, took some home as leftovers and had some the next day. Unfortunately, perhaps because I was floating on a cloud of foie gras happiness, I may have accidentally thrown the rest away. I don’t remember what I did with it and forgot about it until 2 days later at work. And I was so excited to get home to finish it off but alas it was no where to be found. I looked for it online and that’s when I realized how expensive it is… wow. But I had to get another fix and that’s when I decided to make chicken liver pâté instead. I had been sitting on this recipe for months from pinterest and I’m so glad I tried it out. It was delicious. I must’ve eaten pate for 2 weeks straight. The recipe makes a whole lot of pate and I still have a whole bowl left. Right now I think I’m tapped out on all things pâté for a while but that was a really fun discovery for me. I don’t know when I’ll be able to have some again but I’ll remember our time together fondly.

Chicken Live Pate

 

Bill Burr:
This is a tough one because I have so many favourite comedians but let’s just say Bill is my favourite for February. I think what makes him funny is that when he’s on stage it feels like he’s having a conversation with you and his descriptions of things is insanely funny. And he also really has no shame in his game. Him and Louis C.K. push the envelope with their material. Louis C.K. is the only person I found myself laughing until my sides hurt and I couldn’t breathe because he was talking about parents murdering their kids if murder was legal. But this is about Bill Burr. He has a cartoon on Netflix called F is for Family. I highly recommend it if you like his comedy. It’s only 8 episodes. I hope there’s a second season. He has some great specials on Netflix too. I love you Bill!
Jeggings from Rue 21:
I’m slowly falling very deeply in love with jeggings and skinny jeans. I struggle to find pants to fit my giant booty so when I found these I was over the moon. I bought 2 and I need to go back to get more in different colours. Not much else to say but jeggings ftw!!

  1. You had me completely confused for a minute there and thought my reader hadn’t updated!!! Haha…
    I love Chicken Liver pate too!!!!! I make my own because buying it here in the US sucks!!! Plus chicken livers are dirt cheap!!!
    I’m absolutely with you on the jeggings too – I have a big butt and to small waist crazy ratio so always find it hard to find trousers that fit!!! I actually discovered them with Stitch Fix and was like…what are these magic trousers that fit???!!!
    Some great February favourites indeed!!

    • I’ve been hesitant to get Stitch Fix because I don’t think they’ll be able to deal with my ass to waist ratio but you make a very compelling argument. I’m going to look into it right now!! Okay tomorrow, cos it’s bed time.
      Yay for chicken livers!!

  2. Good arse (as we say in the UK)! Unfortunately I am NOT a pâté lover… Or a liver lover… Eek! My worst nightmare! 😂 Glad you enjoyed it though!
