Scenes from a Life

Night walks under full moon.


It was cold and I was pressed for time to make lunch and I dunno some evil spirit posessed me to buy this:


                                 Pretty much what you'd expect if you had zero expectations.

       Raw kale, sweet potato, zuczhini, lentils, tomatoes, tahini dressing. A mess but good.

                                          Beets, barley, broccoli, lentils with nooch.

                     Hiding out from the cold, destroying the patriarchy, you know how we do

                                               An old cheer you up stand-by: Justin's Dark.

                                 Snow storm out into which I ventured. It was a labor of love.

                                This lil lady knows how to keep warm. Best spot in the house.

                                                    Power shots of pure cranberry juice.

    Toasted German rye bread with tahini and apricot jam. They are a match made in heaven.

                        Steamed kale and barley. Added lots of nooch and cayenne post photo.
Stay strong. It's almost the weekend. Though I'll be working through the weekend. Whatever, stay warm at least.

  1. The evil spirit that possessed you to buy the Ramen was probably the same one that possessed you to buy the TJ's Bagels.

    Would the labor of love that sent you out in the storm be for that gorgeous feline? If so, it was totally worth it.

    Tahini & Apricot Jam a match made in heaven? I don't want to try it and find out otherwise...

    1. I gotta get out the sage smudge to avoid these evil spirits. Wtf? The labor of love trek was for G, who is only slightly less furry but nowhere near as squishy.
      Trust me on the tahini and apricot! Or don't. Whatever.

  2. Just so you know, I'm still looking forward to the day we meet up for treats and coffee to discuss poetry and destroying the patriarchy. x

    1. That's me driving; you're on the left doling out snacks.

    2. Perfect. I'm too terrified of going into autopilot and shifting onto the wrong (right but left) side of the road to drive in North America.

  3. That nighttime picture is gorgeous!! It looks so peaceful but I know all too well how damn cold it was. I can't believe you ventured out into the snow... after driving home in the storm I was cranky and didn't leave my house until I absolutely had to the next day!

    Oh ramen, brings me back to my student days! The PB cups look like they made up for it though and the tahini and apricot jam
    is genius!!! I'm definitely going to have to try that since I have both of those in my pantry! Yay!

    Haxan knows what's up. If I could curl up there I would totally do it. I have to settle for under my blankets though.

    1. Haha I feel like the snow is WORSE if you are driving. I just had to be careful not to slip and fall. The trains did the rest of the work.

  4. Snow, Thelma & Louise, Haxan - sounds like a good time! I hope you're keeping warm and dry with all of these conditions. I was on the phone tonight with my cousin in Boston, and she had her Labradoodle (Lad-Poodle mix) in a fleece sweater. Ha!

    I've had McDougalls before, and it's just as described it. ;)

    Now I want to try barley. . .

    1. Yes, a very good time... if only I didn't have to wake up and go to work but it'll do.
      I bet it's even colder in Boston. I'd put Haxan in a sweater too if she'd put up with it...
      Have you not had barley before? I'm eating a lot of it these days because it's in my pantry from that beet-barley-bean dish I made for Christmas and it's very good. It tastes healthy and sorta nutty and has a fun springy texture to it. It's a fun grain to change things up. I was getting a little bored of rice.

    1. I wish there were Costcos around here, not that I'd be able to haul home everything I'd want to buy. But it might be for the best that I can only buy one Justin's treat at a time.

  6. Tahini and apricot jam DOES sound like a match made in heaven. I'm gonna have to try that!

  7. Tahini and apricot jam, you say? Damn, that's like some super classy, supervegan PB and J. I need some of that in my life. Also Justins dark. And a cat. Mainly a cat.

    1. You know me. Super classy. Get the cat! They are the least edible but most wonderful of the three.

  8. Haxan is crazy smart!! I'm just upset i'm too tall to curl up on my stove.... Doesn't sound like i should rush out to buy that ramen, but i would totally pay real money for your rye tahini jam situation there.

    I saw that juice generation has a "cookbook" coming out- will you get a sneak peek?

    1. Haha, I just lean against the oven longingly when it's on.
      I'll keep an eye out for the juice book! Hadn't heard about that.

  9. I love the first photo a lot. You really have a knack for capturing the moody city. I wish I had a Justin's right now but too lazy to go out for one..

    1. Aw, thanks, Andrea. The clouds do most of the work.

  10. Agreeing with all the commenters that tahini and apricot jam sounds like the JAM, if you will. also, why have i never been thelma or louise for halloween? note to self.

    1. The best Halloween costumes are the ones you do with yr friends!

  11. Gotta agree, the McDougall's cups are really hit or miss... I like the miso ramen variety every now and then, but I do of course add tons more tofu and seaweed to mine.

    1. Yeah, I should have saved it for home when I could add things into it. Sometimes they're just easy though.

  12. I love Dr. McDougall’s stuff…I bring them with me on international flights so I don’t have to try their crappy airline meals (only from the U.S.).
