A look at the last week:
Our garden is apparently quite happy… it’s dumping out a supply of veggies daily.
Soyrizo fried rice for brunch one morning.
One of my pet peeves: packing the wrong shoes to put on after working out + showering at the gym. Hellooo so many stripes…
Went to listen to my husband read a short story he had published recently and perform a newly written song as part of a local literary event.
We waited really patiently for this mango to ripen just right… so worth the wait.
Zucchini “noodles” aren’t new, but I had never made them before. While the flavor of this “pasta” was impeccable, the consistency didn’t work for me. Things got soupy. I haven’t given up yet…
Family scrabble night with Nana. Silas and I were a team (and whopped everyone, hah… P.S. I inherited competitiveness from all sides…). YOU tell me what “girltax” is other than a term that comes from your creative writing teacher husband. And ahem pardon the term slut that a certain 9-year-old was eager to play.
This is how we hang out.
Hi, bird! We let our crippled pigeon fly around the house throughout the day. She likes to fly into whatever room I am in… sometimes that is more hazardous than other times. Today she has landed on my head twice and needed a quick mid-air detour from the kitchen twice.
What do these spices…
And these ingredients have in common?
Homemade Ethiopian food one night.
When you walk to the grocery store early in the morning, you see a number of things… Like deer grazing in a neighbor’s yard…
And weird objects in a “FREE” box.
More goodies from another day in the garden.
Those eggplants inspired an eggplant parmesan pizza.
And the abundance of pesto is always a good excuse for this pesto mushroom pie.
Side salads for three.
Late summer Ashland evenings…
My pole bean plants have been climbing straight into the sky and I’ve yet to harvest a single bean!
A small abundance of apricots that were leaning towards being too ripe meant apricot + pecan scones this morning.
Hope you’ve had a good week!
