Adventures in Casserole

30 Aug

hot dish

It’s not that I’m a great cook, I just like to eat and buying food that is already cooked is… expensive.  And I’d rather have new shoes than pre-made food. SO. I invent things.  It goes like this: “What should I make?” “Well, I’m pretty lazy, and I’m craving Mexican… sounds like Mexican Casserole night!” [...]

“Food”  [nationofchange.org] I heard some thing on NPR today about processed food.  I have no idea what they were talking about, as is usually the case when I turn on NPR, because I’m never in the car for that long.  I’m not sure who IS ever in the car for that long.  They don’t exactly [...]

Pinterest Day

I don’t think it will be too long before there is some kind of “National Pin Day.”  I think that schools and offices should be closed, and not just some of them.  All of them.  And everyone will spend the day crafting and cooking and organizing, all projects inspired by pins. Yesterday was Pinterest Food [...]

Going Backwards

I got caught up in the whole Mad Men thing right along with everyone else.  I haven’t caught up with the last few seasons, but I’m totally going to one of these days.  It’s one of my inspirations for the way I do this whole stuck-at-home thing.  You know, the way things “used to be,” [...]

Very Recent History: Farming Is No Vacation

“Vacation” means different things to different people at different times in their lives.  To me, right now, it apparently means leaving my own couch and living room and traveling 1200 miles to sit on my mom’s couch in her living room.  (My dad has his own living room for a few months, and no, he’s [...]

Very Recent History: Obsessive Obsessive Disorder

18 Dec

gman

I feel like I’ve been in pursuit of various things lately, with maybe a little more anticipation than these things warrant.  But you can’t know if something is great until you try it, and anticipation is so fun!  So I obsess.  Sometimes my obsessions lead me to greatness, sometimes they lead me to yellow water. [...]

This 5K thing may not hold a permanent spot in my life.  I haven’t yet learned to listen to pain until it completely stops me, so I’ve been limping around for the last couple of days (no, I have not completely dropped the baby) swearing up and down that I WILL DO THIS 5K THIS [...]

The Lord’s Day

21 Jul

hmmm

That was the only funny cartoon I could find on the topic of the Sabbath.  Valid question! For about 3 months, I’ve been waiting for my husband to leave.  I thought he was going to leave in June, but it got pushed to July.  It’s not that I don’t want him around, you all know [...]

Sissypants

26 Jun

omg omg omg

I’ve been diagnosed by a Real Doctor as a big fat wimp.  Sissypants.  Merriam Webster says here that a variant of sissypants is sissybritches.  I like that one. The word she threw at me was “vasovagal.”  I googled it.  The Mayo Clinic defines it like this: “Vasovagal syncope (vay-zo-VAY-gul SING-cuh-pee) is the most common cause [...]

super!

That’s how my mom’s phone spells “quinoa.”  She’s trying to learn the T9 spelling thing.  It’s cute. Have you had quinoa?  I’m new to it.  It’s kind of amazing.  It’s sort of like brown rice+cous cous, but so much better for you!  One cup of the stuff – cooked – has 8 grams of protein [...]
