Never, in all of my 79 years* have I eaten breakfast on a regular basis.
Oh I know. I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I KNOW!!
“It’s the most important meal of the day,” they yell! “Breakfast controls your appetite so you don’t overeat and snack,” they lie! “You burn [...]
I’m laying on the couch in the dark. It’s 6:00 am. And I’m writing this from the tiny keypad of my phone. It is both the most cool and the most frustrating thing, all at the same time.
I got out of bed because I couldn’t sleep. I was being [...]
I got this idea when I was making kale chips last weekend. When I looked online to see if people do it, I found recipes for deep fried beet chips. But, if you have been reading this site for any length of time, you know my stance on deep frying. And not because [...]
So my new thing, besides *finally* learning to bake kale chips without burning them, is eating kale raw. I’m obsessed. I’m a Kale evangelist. I should be this fervent as a Christian. Seriously.
I bring my kale salad around saying “wanna try some?”
And today (actually about a month ago, as that is when [...]
You may thank me, drought-striken Minnesotans, for this unexpected, unforecasted rainy Saturday.
Because I started washing windows yesterday. Because it always rains the day after I wash windows. Inexplicably. Without fail. I don’t actually believe that, and yet… it hasn’t rained for something like 75 days, I wash windows yesterday and even though the [...]
Hi Everyone, just a short break in the Road Warriors “action.” I’ve been told by my “best” friend that the trip log is a little “boring” this year. I mean, I’d like to tell you there was another car wreck or a speeding ticket. Another huge fight and four more blown tires, but there simply [...]
Anyone who has ever picked up a Thai cookbook will know what they say: that store-bought Thai green curry paste is but a shadow of the real thing.
Blah blah blah.
I’ve been a green curry fan since sometime in college when I first ate at Sawatdee in Minneapolis with my then-boyfriend Jim — [...]
In a rare turn of events, I decided to try a recipe out before the big day.
Most people do that, I know. But I’m one to just throw caution to the wind.
I’m not hosting Thanksgiving this year, but I am making bread, veggies and… I’m still not sure of the last thing. I [...]
Can you ever have too many?
Yes and no, is what I say. Yes, if you are buried under mounds of work and untended-to yard and garden chores. No, if you have all the time in the world. Like my kids seem to have…
I am told it is a bad [...]
That is the question.
A question, I hope, that I have answered, since we are now actively eating them. No one has died. No one has even gotten a stomach ache. So, hopefully we’ve ruled out botulism.
I’m sure that inspires you not. But, who knows. You sit here reading this blog, don’t you? [...]
