Dangit now I want this creation.
I think I’m just gonna start making Paint depictions of the food I make because my camera is almost always dead and I don’t know how to take good pictures anyway.
Today I made summer squash strata for tomorrow’s breakfast but I ate some already and milk-marinated chicken with a red curry rub and cinnamon butternut squash.
You know how I know?
We went to the backyard after I got home from work so I could do some pruning. Our log borders were against the house and the whole backyard was mowed. He thought we were done for the season :l Dude, there was a border. I really should have put up a sign that said Garden…I said I would before, but that was a joke.
At least we had some stuff sitting safely in our containers. But bye bye pumpkins, cucumbers, basil, and carrots. I hardly knew ye. Except for the fennel, because that was actually growing pretty damn well.
:*( :*( :*(
Tears of a sad home gardener.
Not sure when I’m gonna be able to see my mom during the day but usually when I’m around she takes me birthday shopping
I was stupid and bought empanadas even though I’ve been avoiding fried food and now I don’t feel well. Figure making a list might help.
Still trying to figure out a balanced diet that fits this. I also can’t have a lot of raw fruits and some veggies and most nuts because of allergies and I’m allergic to flowers otherwise I would have eaten all the squash blossoms in our garden :( Maybe I’ll ask the vegetarian neighbor if she wants some. I also know I shouldn’t have too much sugar but that one is hard.
I’m gonna try to make myself some more soft-boiled eggs. There’s no oil involved there and the cooking cleanup is minimal. And maybe try to stick to fruits with thick skin like bananas and oranges so I don’t have to be paranoid about bugs getting into my fruit and ruining things.
I tried aerated chocolate for the first time last night and I can’t believe I threw out all the ones I got years ago when I was in London because I had all that extra change left on my daily meal plans. I hate how with meal plans (or at least ours) nothing can carry over to the next day, so if you had money left over for the day, you had to use it. I did get some packets of sugar and butter that came in handy later though. Well, some of the aeros were mint, I wouldn’t have eaten those anyway. But the regular chocolate is good.
Next stop, Breaking Bad marathon.
Our department is gonna be gone in a few months. So now I kind of feel even more indifferent than before. They’ll try to find me something else but I should try even harder now to find work close to home or step up my freelancing. Or just think long and hard about what I really want to do. The horror :P
I checked out the garden last night. Gonna need to do some serious weeding on our corner for the plants’ sakes and to get ready for the party. Eff, I need to get groceries for the party. Why didn’t I do that over the weekend.
Last night I had one of those horrible cat dreams. In this one Allie was alive but she was a kitten. And we kept forgetting about her and she wasn’t being fed so she turned really really small and was squeaking around. Then I gave her a tiny thing of dry food and a tiny saucer of water. I already know what those dreams mean, I’ve had so many of those already.
Went to Governors Island for the Jazz thing then rented one of those 2 bicycle thingamabobs and went around the island. Probably coming back, there’s free kayaking I wouldn’t mind checking out.
Just finished cutting out the shapes for cornhole boards or whatever you call them and I’m really beat.
I mean, they’re not regulation but it should do. Will make the bean bags and paint the boards later.
Has anyone played kubb before? I used to have a lot of Swedish followers on my old Tumblr, probably not the case now.
drank half a cup of coffee and I’m still sleepy. Halp.
All I can do is stretch and yawn and brainstorm hypothetical baby names (Romelia, Victorino).
I had 9 hours of sleep, this makes no sense. Yawn. I would listen to some loud rock if headphones were still allowed but they’re not.
