In which we embrace the plant-base

Last night I was looking through my Menu Design in America book (I LOVE this book), and I saw a menu with a drawing of a zeppelin on it (like this one). It described how zeppelin images were popular in the early 20th century when zeppelins were in use. I nearly dropped my book – do you know that I had NO IDEA that a zeppelin was a REAL thing? I always assumed they were some fantastical fictional things that showed up in storybooks. I felt slightly dumb but also completely dumbfounded, and I reminded myself of Félix Lerbier at the end of Amelie when he learns there are more links possible in his brain than atoms in the universe:
Today for dinner I made curried chickpeas, quinoa, salad with homemade vinaigrette, and kale with tahini-mustard sauce. Even better, Justin asked if he could eat the last of the kale. Victory!!
This morning, I heard from some long lost chefs, received last-minute recipes, cleared out most of my inbox, and in general had a good start to my day. I caught myself actually say out loud, “Everything’s coming up Milhouse!”
This is released tomorrow. Squeeee!
I’m totally going to BookPeople tomorrow to buy a Moleskine address book. For this. I love it!
I hope you’re all having a good start to the week.♥
