A few notes on food and joy

Yesterday, I didn’t photograph the food, because the locusts descended so quickly (and I count myself among the locusts) that it was not even an option. Rib-eye steaks, corn on the cob, and a salad. Definitely a Mom Food meal. The kid approved, and kept telling me it was the best dinner all week.

Now, I really believe that food is not love. When people reject my food, they’re not rejecting me. I know that. But it still gives me joy when I manage to feed people food they love, and last night’s dinner was a joy all around.

(Of course, not being a huge meat-lover, I much preferred the corn to the meat, but hey, joy comes in different forms.)


Speaking of joy, I’m making a Rick Bayless chicken taco recipe for lunch, as part of a contest he runs on Twitter. It’s definitely not Mom Food (my mother doesn’t like Mexican food, and I don’t care that much for chicken), but it’s completely for fun. One thing I love about starting this project is it’s injected some fun into my cooking again.


In meta-blog news, I’m going to join a blogger challenge on Monday, so there may be more posts than I planned between now and launch. I really want to make this project as beautiful and useful as I can.

Disney’s (NYSE:DIS) upcoming national release Star Wars: oakley outlet The Force Awakens is sure to interfere with holiday shopping plans and family visits for the Star Wars fan universe. The space opera’s powerful franchise value, which has raked in untold billions over the cheap mlb jerseys last 38 years, shows no signs of weakening, and an entirely new generation of fans are eager to shovel their money in for tickets, memorabilia, and merchandise. The trailer for the film generated well over 30 million views on YouTube in the first 24 hours of its release, leading to industry estimates of the film hauling in $533 540 million in its global debut alone, and should easily surpass the $1 billion range; figures close to the movie are optimistic to edge closer toward a $2 billion figure, in fact.Cuban told MacMahon to the locker room after MacMahon wrote an article critical of Mavericks coach Avery Johnson. Yates wrote that the policy, issued this weekend by the team, language on the team season media passes, allowing access to all media areas, including locker rooms. MacMahon tried to enter the Mavericks locker room prior to last Thursday Rockets Mavericks game and last Saturday Nets Mavericks game, but stopped both times. Cuban, in an e mail response, wrote: can assure you that I am not singling out Tim MacMahon. I don care what Tim writes, then or now. What I do care about is being fair to all bloggers.”Bump and Run” is fake oakleys the story of Jack Molloy, wholesale nfl jersyes black sheep son of the man who owns the (fictitious) New York Hawks NFL team. His own dreams of playing pro ball shattered by a college injury, Molloy earns his keep as the “Jammer” or fixer for the owner of a Las Vegas casino. He’s in charge of keeping people, including his boss, out of jams. He’s also the guy high rollers count on for favors, “whether it’s a tee time . or the best odds on the Georgia Florida game, or a showgirl who’d not only laugh and look at you the way Siegfried always looked at Roy, but who wouldn’t ask you for five hundred dollars afterward to help out with her acting classes.”MILLER: Yeah, we have a pretty good idea, Dave. The case was well known up and down the New Orleans police structure. Up to the highest levels were being briefed NFL Jerseys Cheap on the investigation that Detective Williams actually believed he had wholesale nfl jerseys a case because he did have DNA evidence, and he had a witness whose very believable, but that the district attorney in New Orleans and the police chief in New Orleans at the time wanted to have a wholesale jerseys like, a rock solid case that you couldn’t lose basically. It had to be absolutely rock solid. And that that kind of pressure impacted whether or not to go forward with the investigation. And it kind of stalled for a long time once again, until the Los Angeles Police actually arrested Sharper.

I run The Mom Food Project, which was born out of love for my mom and a desire to preserve the recipes of my childhood, which didn't actually exist in written form until I quizzed my mom and wrote the recipes down.

  1. I’m so glad you’re doing the challenge. This is a wonderful project and I can’t wait to see where you are at the end of the month!
