A nod to a few of my senses today. Cookbooks, good ones, for me, fill all my senses. I love to page through them, look at the pictures, read the background stories, imagine how the food will look, taste and smell, and if I s.t.r.e.t.c.h this, how it will sound (?) OK, maybe not all…

In the name of moderation, I have an appointment with this piece of equipment today. A Russian kettlebell. I was introduced to Russian kettlebells, or KBs, by my stepmom, Susanna, who I believe was introduced to them at her health club. She raved a bit about them, so I looked them up on the web,…

Used my herb butter to make myself a little brunch – nothing new here, I’ve written this before – egg over-easy on toast (cooked the egg in a little herb butter, put a little on the toast) with chopped arugula and scallions. Salt and pepper. Glass of champagne. Delicious. Aaaah, Sunday morning. Love it. With…

Whew. Home from Willmar (not fun driving on Highway 12, in the dark, in the rain). Amanda’s shower was fun and cozy at LuLu Bean’s coffee house, if you happen to be in Willmar looking for a cup of coffee, go there, it’s adorable. Amanda (pictured here with her future mother-in-law, my aunt Mary) got…

OK, I’m tired today – too much partying! Awww, isn’t that sad? This really is not my usual routine, at all. Which is probably why I’m so tired! Last night’s neighborhood women’s association meeting was as fun as always. Hosted in the beautiful home of my neighbor Marie, everything was lovely. Great food, wine, and…

Crazy-fun night, oh my god how I laughed, ouch. Kim and Susie (here with Nathan), two of the funniest people on the planet, came for dinner. Our goal was to actually do some work – ha! – on Feminine Hijinx… Our soon-to-be podcast! Of the three of us raving various subjects together – the concept…

Wake up! Turns out, not much of a problem today. That coffee – the real deal – that I happily drank at Susie’s yesterday? Vrooom, powered me through damn near the entire night. I’ve mentioned before that I’m off caffeine, for exactly this reason, but once in awhile I indulge. Usually, it’s fine. But usually…

Here’s Suz, cooking chili today, she invited me over for lunch. Woo hoo! It was delicious and so cozy. With biscuits, and lots of coffee (of course). A little chat for dessert. I had – what else? – polenta (!) to contribute, so we had that too, and it was nice with the chili, even…

Good start to the week. Got Nathan to school on time, stopped for gas and a car wash on the way home – in my pajamas no less, I am amazed by how crazy-daring I’ve gotten about running errands in my pajamas. With a winter coat over them, of course, but still, there are my…

Had lunch with my friend Chris today, at Kafe 421. What is it about me forgetting lunches at Kafe 421? I damn near did it again, but luckily Chris called ahead of time, so once more I dashed off for Dinkytown looking like a hungover college student. Not even that good, because a college student…
