Menu & Search


April 9, 2012

I saw a bumper sticker that said:

If you think you feel good, wait until you feel me.

I laughed so hard.

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:

I have had this song stuck in my head for days, after watching Young Adult. And, much like Mavis Gary, I replay it in my car over and over. But not on a cassette.

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.

    I started watching Young Adult on a flight, but then my download expired and I never saw the last 30 minutes or so. How does it end???

    I pre-ordered Ripe a few months ago so I will have it on my doorstep when I get home today! I love pre-ordering from Amazon!
