sour

I tasted some yogurt that was very sour.  Normally I like plain yogurt, but this was an 8 on the sour scale.  It made me shiver. “Somebody give that goat a better life,” I said.  “Pet her head and feed her a carrot.  At least the green top of a carrot.” The goat was very… Read More »

airbnbs we have known

Thinking about the airbnbs we have known.  Our first time was back when we visited Olympia, Washington six and a half years ago.  We got the small studio apartment of a flight attendant.  The idea was that she rented out her space to people while she was elsewhere. The apartment building felt sketch, and I… Read More »

almond butter

“Hey, lover.  I need to tell you something,” I said to Ming, thinking about almond butter.  “There’s something I told you before, but now it changed, so it’s no longer true.  You wanna hear what I’m talking about?” “Sure,” he said.  We were out in the driveway, and it was dusky out.  I wanted to… Read More »

Hey, how are you doing?  Thought you might like this Japanese Funk and Soul on Vinyl (Late 70’s, early 80’s.). I thought it might be fun to dance to–youtube showed it to me.  Thank you, algorithm!  Yes, I was right.  It was fun to dance to. I like that the music was very new to… Read More »

nopales

Hey, guess what.  Ming and I were at the Mexican grocery store, and we were looking for a specific thing.  But I was attracted to the nopales.  A bag of fresh cactus, prepped–spines were removed, and it was diced. I wanted to buy it to make some, but I felt a tug of guilt.  It’s… Read More »

cat bones

“Tell me you washed that after you picked up cat bones,” I told Ming. “It went through the dishwasher twice!” he said. We laughed.  Yeah, we have a funny life.  I was referring to a pair of long tweezers that Ming was using to extract beads from a plastic embroidery thread organizer box, for me.… Read More »

peppers

“I picked some peppers,” Ming said. “Did you pick a peck of peppers?” I asked. “Maybe!” he said.  “How much is a peck?” “A lot!”  I said.  “I think it’s a fourth of a bushel!” Ming looked impressed. “Yeah!  Thank you, fourth grade!  In case I got lifted up and transported to a farm, and… Read More »

spicy crunchy garlic tofu

Hey, guess what?  I made some spicy crunchy garlic tofu.  Wow, it was Korean, vegan, and delicious. Let me tell you how it came about.   I semi-accidentally watched a cooking video on youtube.  Recipe looked delicious and very possible to make.  Lately I’m studying Korean language a lil bit, and google gods or youtube gods… Read More »

banana vs sweet potato

I took a sweet potato out of its bag and wanted to receive a phone call.  It reminded me of a banana phone!  Then I was laughing about banana phones, and laughing about banana vs sweet potato. Yes, what an epic rap battle that would be.  They’re both sweet, have fiber and vitamins, and are… Read More »

pizza mandala

Ming got a winco cheese pizza, seven bucks, so I put some sliced thin bell pepper and half my veggie sausage.  Pizza mandala!  He liked it.  And it was pretty. Here’s how it looked when I pulled it out of the oven.  Ming had checked it a couple times and said it looked pale.  So… Read More »
