It's fun. It's an activity and it's delicious.
My favorite pizza that I made last year included prawns and white truffles. Yes, man.
Now. Make a great salad. I mean a really beautiful salad.
Go daffodil greens, watercress, or maybe endive. Go arugula and shave some asiago, with Meyer lemon and black pepper. Use herbs, get edible flowers and sprinkle those on it (awesome).
Make a gorgeous, fresh representation of what you think new love can be. It's a nice way to choose ingredients for a salad. Don't overdress it. The lighter the better.
Honorable mention: Vodka. Just vodka.
