I forgot it was supposed to rain today. I love waking up to unexpected rain.

This was our first Thanksgiving on our own in quite a while. I made a vegan feast, but we didn’t eat it all at once–I didn’t have everything done at the same time. We ate in courses. First I made cornbread for stuffing. Then I made roasted potatoes and rutabaga. Then I made the stuffing.… Read More »
madrone vs strawberry tree
One of yesterday’s moments was when we were looking at a tree, trying to figure out what it was, in Tilden Park. We instantly thought it was a madrone. But I had seen little tree strawberries on the ground and had said, “There’s a strawberry tree here somewhere,” and we realized the tree strawberries had… Read More »
I made some vegan acorn squash enchiladas, and here’s how. Wash a large acorn squash and cut it in half. Be careful! Cook it up in the oven or microwave until it’s really done. Scoop out the flesh of the smaller half and save it for another dish. Scoop out the flesh of the larger… Read More »

At the thrift store, a mom was tugging on her child. “That’s a girl’s toy. No, come over here. That’s a girl’s toy.” I felt sorry for the little… Read More »
I’m so glad it’s clementine / mandarin / satsuma time again. Erik too. It’s raining like crazy, and our street has been known to flood–a few years ago, our car got flooded and didn’t dry right and we had to get the carpets washed for something like $100. Anyway, we parked on the far side… Read More »
A couple weeks ago I bought the biggest acorn squash I had ever seen from Trader Joe’s–I think it was 99 cents. This morning I managed to cut it in half all by myself, and now I’m cooking it up. First I cooked the seeds, with salt–they’re very good.
