It’s funny how a food item can be wonderful one day and crap the next. Tuesday night I made myself a salad: iceberg lettuce, cheese, mandarin oranges, lemon pepper tuna, homemade croutons, and russian dressing. Nirvana in a bowl. On thursday, I made practically the same salad. And wound up throwing most of it away […]

a little of this, a little of that

Tuesday, September 27th, 2005

Last night I drove home craving salad. I’d asked my pop to pick up a head of lettuce at the store and I had a jar of homemade russian dressing on the counter. I’m still craving that salad, pop can’t remember more than one thing at a time without a list. Of course, it’s not […]

The Joy of Pi

Wednesday, September 21st, 2005

The Perkiest Man Alive once told me a story about how his grandmother would make a separate pie for each and every member of her family on thanksgiving. When you arrived at her house, there was a table absolutely groaning under the weight of pies, each of them with a name tag beside them. It […]

I used to have this officemate who loved key lime pie. Every time he would mention it, I would reply with “I have the best recipe for that…” but never brought him either the recipe or the pie. I’ve been saying to myself for the past year that I was going to make key lime […]

Product review time, since I haven’t been doing much cooking lately beyond the magical brownies. (My ex thought that they were the best brownies of all time, but they come from a mix. Martha White Chewy Brownies = super easy, super cheap, and damned tasty) Yesterday, the Lokipie and I were grabbing some groceries when […]

Wednesday, September 7th, 2005

is it weird to make a birthday present for someone you’ve never met? but then, i guess that’s the type of person that i am *shrug* dunno. it’s a messenger bag rather like mine, but pink/red/orangey fur with a gir patch sewed on. i made it the same way i made mine, but i paid […]

New Format

Tuesday, September 6th, 2005

Expect lots of changes here as I play around with themes and such. I’d like to get the theme a bit more personalized, but I’ve just chosen a template for now. The message boards are still there, no changes there. I spent the weekend working on a messenger bag and a scarf, refusing to leave […]
