Some days I don’t realize that I haven’t had a proper lunch until after I’ve had eleventy snacks. At least my snacks were mostly healthy? 😀
I saw someone on YouTube make a green pea-avocado toast, so I wanted to try it. It was good, but the peas made the whole thing pretty sweet.
I am lucky enough to have two bags of frozen, uncooked tamales from my mama. I steamed them up in the InstantPot, and they are AMAZING.
I haven’t been able to get my favorite iced tea through Instacart or curbside pick-up, so I keep trying other options, and I keep not loving them. 🙁
We were craving this vermicelli with curried tofu that we had years ago at Triumph Cafe (RIP), so I tried to wing it and used a yellow curry sauce from Trader Joe’s. It was fine, but next time I’ll definitely make my own curry (and I won’t be buying that sauce again).
A Visitor from Africa
The Saharan dust cloud has arrived over ATX. The sky looks kind of eerie and brown, and it’s supposed to be even bigger tomorrow. It’s so strange to think that this dust (which I am probably breathing in right now) was recently swept from lands that are oceans away, that I may never see. It feels magical.
Just Do It
We are at 7,097 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Austin. I’m not surprised—people just will not stay home, will not wear masks, will not stay 6 feet apart. I keep saying, we may be SO done with the virus, but that does not mean the virus is done with us! Such is life. J and I will stay in our little bubble with our masks and grocery delivery and home cooking and kitty cat and YouTube and Netflix. 🙂
Thank you for loving me, even when I’m sad or angry or worried or stressed or nauseous or in The Hole. I don’t know how you do it, but I’m so glad you do.
You suck. That is all.
Thank you for providing music and stories and photos and things to anticipate during this madness. I totally understand now why the world loves you. Borahae.
Is there anything you can’t do?! Today you steamed my mama’s tamales to perfection. Last week you cooked my pinto beans to the creamiest, most delicious versions of themselves. Before that, you made making veggie marinara quick and easy. What shall we do next?
I missed you. Ready to play? 😉
It just doesn’t feel like we’ve really returned to ATX until we go to Pool Burger. 🙂
They have the best burgers – plus crinkle fries! And really, really good pineapple lemonade.
Any time the weather is super nice, and it’s midday, and a burger sounds remotely good, this is where we go. 😎
