Sunday Somethings

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. It’s been a lovely weekend here with Grape paying me a visit, the first guest to visit the Buddha Bungalow. It’s weird how much you don’t realize how much you miss someone that you used to see literally every day (we used to […]

Palmiers

Palmiers

(A lot of) years ago when I was in law school, a group of classmates and I hit up all the EU hotspots on a ten-day trip right before Christmas. As Lettuce and I, roommates for the trip, entered our hotel room, we were greeted […]

Vodka-Rosemary Barbecue Sauce

Vodka-Rosemary Barbecue Sauce

Did I ever tell you that barbecue is one of my favorite things ever? Well, it is, mostly because it involves meat, usually some sort of fried potato thing and also some bread of sorts. All my loves, rolled into one. I don’t much make […]

Hello, Sunday. Well, this short week really screwed with my head. I woke up Wednesday to go to work, forgot it was Wednesday and found myself sort of scrambling all day! Then, I guess knowing it was just a three day week, those three days […]

Sweet & Sour Tacos

Sweet & Sour Tacos

Tacos, I’ve got ‘em. Sorry for the lack of Somethings this week. I was back in Chicago this past weekend volunteering and visiting friends and wheeling and dealing. The internet and blog went by the wayside for 3 days and it was a bit of […]

Small Batch Strawberry Jam

Small Batch Strawberry Jam
