DDC week 11 -- breakfast
Pretty quick and simple this week, hardly making up for my skipping last week. This week I made a frittata with fried potatoes that was super simple but tasty (both eggs and potatoes from our CSA — the potatoes were pink inside!). On the side were homemade/homegrown bread and butter pickles (my absolute favorite) some toast with homemade apple jelly (oh if only I had an apple tree), and...

DDC week 9 -- unphotogenic. and late. again.
I’ve really been a slacker lately and for no good reason. This week we had a pasta dish strongly interpreted from this month’s Bon Apetit issue. All the veggies (a parsnip, some tiny turnips, a half a squash, a red onion) came from our winter CSA share, the pasta (which was fresh/frozen linguine) was local but I don’t recall where from (a whole foods local provider) (that feels...
oh! you can now go look at the stuff you clicked the little heart for. that’s cool.

In the student center thing in school there were sometimes some tables set up. they were usually thinly disguised head-shop type operations. usually selling jewelry from south america, often made from sculpy clay, probably featuring sarongs on one side. one time there was a sweater dealer. he had wool sweaters with grateful dead bears on them and regular ol fair isle sweaters. they were so ...

I was working at home and i just saw a pilot ditch a us airways plane in the hudson river. we all ran to the window b/c it was flying so low and so fast by my apartment window, we knew something was up, and then it just kept getting lower. this is horrible. so scary. i’ve never seen anythign like this. this pilot is a hero if he saved these people, b/c he put...

people won’t stop f’ing talking about them. if you have to discuss how to use them all the damned time why are they so awesome?
ddc week 8 -- a wee bit late.
Aside of the fact that this is monday and my entry should have been written yesterday — (I was having a knitting emergency). This week I shared our local dinner with Sam my csa-share-splitter. In our winter share we get meat and dairy too! Which is very exciting. Except for the part where — well, ever tried to divide a frozen chicken in half? right, so we cooked it together and...

DDC week 6 and 7 --
As suspected, I totally flaked on last week. We were out of town and generally letting other people feed us, but I’m making up for it this week I hope. two totally local dinners and a semi local breakfast seems like a pretty good start to 2009 to me. we had turkey burgers with sweet potatoes and kale. The meat and potatoes came from our csa and the kale came from a generous garden...
