Meal 2: Rice with eggplant
Meal 3: Alton Brown's The Chewy chocolate chip cookies, fried rice, wine. Stuffed!
The cookies were beautiful, I used all-purpose flour instead of bread flour, since that's what I had and unfortunately had to replace all the brown sugar with white. The flavor lacked depth, although I suspect this was the problem. Next time I'll try Toll House, or something simpler and see if it works any better.
