This is the lower two-thirds of my friend Hawk’s face right before we ate all this food at Southpark Seafood. Not pictured: even more food. Writing from: my study. Listening to: the “Amélie” soundtrack, which the U.S. iTunes Store did not have but my library … Continue reading Day 214 of Project 365: Om to the nom.
When my alarm goes off at 5:30 a.m. I have a hard time remembering what my name is, let alone figuring out how to prepare a moderately healthy breakfast. Oatmeal does the trick, sort of, but after several days in a row of oatmeal I … Continue reading Day 186 of Project 365: Breakfast club.
Howdy, strangers! I forgot (again) how quickly these pile up when I run out of energy before I can post them each day. I will have to figure out another schedule. But here are some glimpses of the past week or so, plus a throwback photo … Continue reading Days 176-184 of Project 365: June and on and on.
Despite this being the least appealing food photograph I’ve ever taken, I was highly impressed by the meal I made from the SunBasket gift we received from my mom. This was a recipe for salmon with mango salsa, and it was easy to prepare and cook, … Continue reading Day 175 of Project 365: SunBasket magic.
It has been a great first week of my new job. And now I shall sleep for many hours in a row. But first I’ll enjoy a bit of a thoughtful gift from a new coworker. Writing from: my study. Listening to: my filled-to-capacity brainmeats … Continue reading Day 169 of Project 365: Sweet reward.
Tonight I made salmon with an almond-meal crust topped with caramelized onions. (O, aroma of caramelizing onions, I missed you!) I roasted some Brussels sprouts on the side, and FunkyPlaid and I enjoyed our meal with a glass of white wine on the front porch. … Continue reading Day 153 of Project 365: Caramelized.
Hello again, patient Project 365 friends! The end of May zipped so quickly that I fell far behind with these posts. I kept snapping every day, though, so I have something to show for my long absence. Down the leftmost column: a mass of shopping … Continue reading Days 140-152 of Project 365: Spring chaos.
FunkyPlaid and I feasted on arepas plus a whole passel of other great food at Teote tonight. Oddly enough, the taste of arepas always transports me not to Nicaragua or Colombia but to Scotland. My friend Juliana would make them for us for lunch after we tromped through the … Continue reading Day 139 of Project 365: Arepa plus.
Portland loves tater tots. I, too, love tater tots, but am also trying to limit my white starch intake. Then I met sweet potato tots. (They’re calling themselves “puffs” but we both know the truth.) Still starchy, sure, but a perfect distraction from the lurgy. Writing from: … Continue reading Day 136 of Project 365: Tots!
Time to refocus on my health, now that the parental visit is over and I managed to catch a cold. I don’t do diets. Not being able to eat gluten is enough of a restriction for me, and I think that non-medically-mandated diets can encourage … Continue reading Day 134 of Project 365: Four-list method.
