Bad influence

Bad influence

If only I could say that this wasn’t one of sev­er­al sim­i­lar­ly-sized stacks of treats to return with me. It’s for presents. Sure, presents. Except, I can’t give the squished ones away.Dino made me do it. Dragged me all over the gro­cery store.  
Eat, Pray, Dinosaur

Eat, Pray, Dinosaur

I know. I know. I’m sup­posed to be tran­si­tion­ing to more pro­fes­sion­al mate­r­i­al on the blog while I am still search­ing for employ­ment, but I was giv­en a new dinosaur! In minia­ture! Per­fect for new pho­to projects. We did some bak­ing today — after I did my yoga and sent out a cou­ple of cov­er let­ters and resumés, of course. You...
Holiday Time

Holiday Time

Being with fam­i­ly for the hol­i­days is always a spe­cial, large­ly food-filled time. I’ve final­ly found the appro­pri­ate clock for telling hol­i­day time.

… won­der­ful bread from the best bak­ery in town that I get to take on a vis­it to see friends.

The first thing I am thankful for…

…is good cof­fee, first thing in the morn­ing. Donuts don’t hurt either, but aren’t required.

From a small town butcher’s shop, a basic “do unto oth­ers” mes­sage with omi­nous visu­als. It real­ly is just best to pay at the time of pur­chase.

From the “Why did it take me so long?” files

Why did it take me a year and a half to real­ize that the fruit sal­ad I’ve been watch­ing the juice lady across the street make is (1) awe­some and (2) 15 pesos (US$1.20)? As lunch, this real­ly helped pull my day togeth­er. Today was a fruit, yogurt, and ama­ranth day (but gra­nola and hon­ey are also options). ...
Representative food

Representative food

This week­end is Mex­i­can Inde­pen­dence Day, and the tra­di­tion­al food around this time is a dish called chiles en noga­da con­sist­ing of stuffed poblano chiles with a cream sauce and pome­gran­ate seeds. So, the col­ors of the Mex­i­can flag are clear­ly rep­re­sent­ed. It’s quite rich, but I have played around with my own ver­sions a few times at home,...
mmmmm...pancakes

mmmmm…pancakes

It’s been a slow week with a decid­ed lack of decent snack food. Besides, these were the cra­zi­est pan­cakes I’ve ever seen, and they took like 20 min­utes to make. Spot­ted while trav­el­ing a few weeks ago. Now I head­ed back to the kitchen to do some dish­es and raid my peanut but­ter and nutel­la stash for dessert, as...
Just that type of day

Just that type of day

Sigh. I had to buy some chips and a soda. It’s only Wednes­day. Sigh. Of course, I also went for a fair­ly nice to run to bal­ance things out. Didn’t com­plete­ly work. Onto a bit of gin now. I’m ready for a vaca­tion, but that is still weeks away.

To be present and assist where ever there is dessert to be found.
Uninspired to cook

Uninspired to cook

When it gets hot I just don’t feel like cook­ing. But I’m still hun­gry, so I’m kind of stuck. Also, I’m doing data entry for the solar cook­stove project, which is unin­spir­ing for the moment. Although, I expect the results to be inter­est­ing (per­haps even fas­ci­nat­ing). So, here are two pics from the last cook­stove work­shop. Every­one...
