School Night Meals, Part II


So has everyone seen this movie The Ides of March? I loved it. It was stunning. It’s been a while since a film has captivated me the way this one has  [lies, probably Godfather Part II, if that counts as “a while”]. It centers around a Democratic presidential primary in Ohio, which I promise you […]

It’s a Cabbage. Who Knew?


In case you’re wondering: I’ve lived in eight different apartments from 2007 until today. In case you’re wondering why that’s important: I started my bar application yesterday.

Beer in Dinner, Beer with Dinner


Special thanks to an extended stay at Shenandoah Joe’s yesterday, I finally finished The Corrections and quickly moved through two other short pieces. The Corrections had a way of drawing me back in just at the point[s] I was ready to throw it off of a cliff with an awesome passage, but all-in-all I think the awesomeness was […]

Just Two Adults Getting a Stew On


I’m glad last night’s butternut burritos derailed my original dinner plans because it allowed me to completely change what I had in mind before. The result? Pumpkin stew. I had a can of pumpkin open after this afternoon’s spicy pumpkin & soy sausage flatbread lunch [was too lazy to photograph], so into the stew it […]

Vegan Meet-Ups and Pumpkin Chili


Oh, hey. It’s cold. Cold like, my-most-visited-site-is-thenorthface.com-cold. Cold enough that I’m about to become their highest valued customer. We don’t have the heat turned on in the house yet, which is problem #1. We’re holding out because it’s supposed to be back up to 65-75 this week, and maybe even sunny. What does the sun […]

Different Cooks in the Kitchen


I would be blatantly lying if I said I do all the cooking “around here.” I definitely don’t, so if my blog has given you that idea, I apologize. Shaun is my co-chef and I’d say we split the duties pretty well. My cooking style and Shaun’s perfectly complement one another. I plan far ahead, […]
