And things

May 13, 2013


Tonight I made a version of this dish. I just used kale (no brussels sprouts), and I topped it with some simple grilled salmon. I’ve been feeling fishy lately, but I haven’t felt like cooking fish. Today I stopped at Central Market and picked up some pre-grilled salmon, and it was such a perfect solution. I need to remember this! Make some awesome veggies or salads, pick up some cooked meats. For some reason, cooking meat is still kinda weird to me. It’s been ages since I was a vegetarian, but I guess I never really picked that back up. Anyway.

Also, today I somehow ate kale three times. This dinner, a kale and tamari salad at lunch, and a kale-apple-ginger-lemon juice. Maybe tomorrow will be a carrot day.

In other news, WE HAVE OWLS! Today, I was randomly staring up at the trees in our back courtyard and gasped when I saw two eyes STARING AT ME. So far we have seen two of them – and they seem pretty small, as owls go. Super cute, and sometimes creepy. Just last week, we watched a family of raccoons (mama and four babies) relocate from our neighbor’s windowsill to some dark spot behind their house. And today a bluejay was yelling at Roux for watching him through the screen door. I feel like Snow White.


Other bits:

  • Tomorrow I’m going to see The Great Gatsby. I’ve been waiting for this day for over a year now, and I’m kind of freaking out about it. It’s one of my favorite books. I have a first edition print of this hanging in my living room. I adore Baz Luhrmann. I can’t WAIT to see it. I might not be able to sleep tonight.
  • I’ve been finding some seriously funny animated re-tellings lately. Like The Matrix retold by one guy’s mom. Or Star Wars retold by some guy’s uninterested friend. Or this joke told by one guy’s drunk wife. Love it.
  • This cute comic.
  • I kinda want to make a gelatin dessert.

I hope everyone has a wonderful May week.

    I think I actually saw you at Central Market yesterday? I was cutting through produce to the bulk section and thought I saw you out of the corner of my eye, but I wasn’t sure. Now I’m pretty sure it was you!

    I’ve been loving Sprouted Kitchen’s recipes lately. Have you had a chance to flip through their cookbook? So much deliciousness.

    And I feel you on the no-cooking-meat-thing. For some reason, that’s always been Darius’s job and so I feel totally clueless when I’m the one cooking it. It’s not like I don’t know how to do it, it’s just that it feels weirder/more complicated than non-meat.

    Also, THAT OWL IS ADORABLE. And the baby raccoons sound so cute too! I wish they’d all come visit at my house.

      I’m sure it was me! I didn’t see you! I haven’t looked through their cookbook yet, but I’m sure I’m going to love it. And I’m totally cool with the owls and raccoons, though I suppose if they started getting into my trash and things I might not be. 🙂
