What a lovely day, and one that could have really stunk. My pain level was high, but I decided to just do whatever I felt like and push through the pain. That’s not always possible or recommended, but it worked fine today, and it made for a really good day off from my day job. Wish I had felt up to the ninety-minute bus ride to go visit Guy, but fortunately, I will see him tomorrow night, when he takes me to the thea-tah.

What I managed to do today mostly centered around vegetables:

  • Walked to the store (a mile each way)
  • Shopped for a bunch of groceries*
  • Soaked and pressure-cooked a mess of garbanzos
  • Cut up a mountain of veggies — see?

carrots, celery, bell peppers, radishes

(Don’t hate me for using baggies. These days, there are things I do that my environmentalist hippy-chick heart withers at, but I call them health expenses for now and I live with the cognitive dissonance.)

  • Roasted a couple of red peppers
  • Made hummus out of some of the garbanzos, along with the roasted peppers, and froze the rest
  • Baked a loaf of bread and forgot about it until it was almost burnt, but not quite

bread -- check that flyaway crust!

  • Made slumgullion for lunch (which I’ll post about in the morning)
  • Washed, oiled, and salted three nice baking potatoes and put them in the oven
  • Delegated the rest of the dinner preparation to James, who is the designated steak cooker in the house, much as it chagrins our sense of gender parity

These were two steaks my mom brought up. A pound each! James and I split one, and the kid had the other. James cut slits in the meat and shoved garlic slivers in there. YUMMA.

This day required a pain pill on top of my usual medication, but oh, my goodness, it really feels worth it right now. ‘Course, I’m stoned on codeine, so what do I know.

*Including $21.70 worth of produce, to wit:

a bunch of radishes
a pint of really sweet strawberries
a head of garlic
a stalk of celery
a bundle of chives
a head of romaine
a baby pineapple because it was SO CUTE!
a couple pounds of red bell peppers
a pound and a quarter of carrots
almost four pounds of bananas
a couple pounds of pears
a pound and a half each of apples, cara cara oranges, and oro blanco
two kinds of potatoes: the aforementioned russets, and a bag of nice white ones

$20 usually goes farther at our produce store, but it’s still not a bad showing, and the total is skewed by the baby pineapple, which was a scandalous amount, but sometimes, you just gotta have cute food!

His emphasis was on education becoming a whole person, physically, wholesale jerseys china mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.””I would consider success giving everything I have,” Tebow said. “I would consider success putting in the work and looking back on this opportunity and this journey 10, 15, 20 years from now and saying that I gave everything I had, I did everything I could do to be the best that I could be. I don’t necessarily view success or failure as how many rings or championships or promotions you get.”.2f). After activation in the presence of IL 2, all GM CSF producing TH cells expressed the IL 2R (Fig. 2g,h).

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. Serene, I am so sorry that you are in pain! I hope that you are getting better. It looks like you had a really productive day and your steak, baked potato and salad look so delicious – not to mention your loaf of bread! Thank you for your lovely comment about my tart – it made my day! And thank you for Stumble and Reddit[ing] it! :)

  2. Stumbled on your blog looking for pressure cooker recipes… discovered a talented writer (and chopper ; ) instead! What did you do with all of your garbanzo beans!??!

    Ciao,
