Making fun of what people name their kids, The DOB has renamed our family, Bodrian, Blu Filandria and Rorkaus. Can you guess who is who?
Made a simple snack of fried potato and corn cakes with a cayenne pepper yogurt sauce, a couple of days ago. Made with fresh thai chiles from our garden, and garlic grated with our new garlic grater plate, gifted to us by the DOB’s mother. I solved the missing egg problem by googling: what, besides eggs, makes things stick? Answer: corn starch and cheese, I also added corn meal, and almond butter for good measure. Cook time: slightly under two hours. But so so worth it.
D.O.B.: I’m really excited about fall. I love the cuisine of fall. Don’t get me wrong, I love the cuisine of summer too. I’m just looking forward to the cuisine of fall…soups and risotto…”
Having some quality R.R. or relationship rejuvenation, or family home evening with Gracie, Bandit, Obi, Akila and the D.O.B. Ran six, slept for two, watched two episodes of season three, Veronica Mars. Tonight it’s roasted veggies, polenta, dover sole, buffalo milk mozzarella caprese, and a pinot grigio.
Last night we watched 21 Jump Street and it rocked.
The D.O.B. has left me for a man on wild, and man on fish, and man and dog and tent on remote campground, and man in river, two-night back packing trip.
Instead of cleaning the house, I watched five hours of Mad Men because I’m depressed.
"Difficult Offbeat Boyfriend, let’s have fun tonight."
He comes home with fish for him, tofu for me, dolmas, olives, Joe’s Hawaiian Shirt Feta (from Polson, Montana) heirloom tomatoes with red onions and cucumbers (even though he hates cucumbers) for a Greek salad, with rice pilaf and fresh oregano from our garden and a Chateau du Languedoc.
Nice dinner, nice walk, then I picked a fight over how to define ” female sportiness.”
People with dog advice should mind their own business.
Silly Simple Girlfriend.
In other news, it’s almost his weekend. In other news, after six weeks of weekend, it’s almost my work week.
The weed wacker might get covered in dew tonight.
