positive thoughts for Chewie

2016年10月25日



Love my Lentil Quinoa Loaf! Then you will love these burgers. These fat and delicious patties make a hearty meal. Make a burger or serve in wraps or salads!

Lentils and quinoa and amped up with cooked onion, garlic and veggies, spices, sauces and made into patties. Cook the patties on a skillet and the patty is ready in 6 minutes! Glaze, add toppings and serve. Change up the spices in the burgers and use middle eastern blend, or garam masala or taco spice. Change up the glaze to choice. We had these with regular tomato, onion, lettuce. and some with chopped cucumber, radish, onion, tomato, cilantro salad.

On another note, send loads of positive thoughts for Chewie, our adopted puffball.

together in under 30 minutes

2016年07月25日



Ramen noodles with bell pepper, green onion, garlic powder, ginger, bean sprouts and basil lightly stir-fried in sesame oil w/ red pepper flakes, a little tamari in the mix and all topped with sesame seeds. Not too shabby for this last minute throw together meal. I should call it ‘the cleaning out the fridge recipe’, as it was just that and so very good apartments for rent in hk!

I’ve used ramen noodles here to add them to the recipe collection but you can sub in 100% soba noodles making this a gluten free dish. I’ve been going through most of the Asian noodles and thought I would give these a try. They cook up quick, 4 minutes, making this dish come together in under 30 minutes E27 LED Cheap Price.

Feel free to add in as many veggies as you wish. Keep it simple like shown or add sliced mushrooms, carrots, zucchini and/or broccoli florets just to name a few for your consideration. You can never have enough vegetables in my opinion, so overshooting is ok, especially the basil…the more the merrier!

An easy and basic recipe, perfect for those who want a hearty noodle dish pronto hong kong sehenswürdigkeiten!

My life passes before my eyes

2016年06月15日



Every year, my friend Brandi takes her preteen niece Paige on a trip for spring break, and this year, June and I went along. Last week, the four of us spent four days exploring the Grand Canyon and nearby Antelope Canyon, eating trail mix (the kind with M&Ms in it, the only kind), and feeling a quasi-religious level of gratitude that the flat tire we got while driving between the aforementioned canyons didn’t occur in the desolation of mid-desert but rather in the parking lot of one of only two gas stations along the route.

Somehow, June is now big enough to carry her own backpack. My life passes before my eyes hong thai travel.

Back at home, I find that we have reached, yet again, the time of year when the weather in Seattle feels its most Seattle-ish, the rain’s last hurrah. It’s another early spring, another March, another year that I again listen to the music that makes Seattle feel most Seattle-y, by which I mean Mother Love Bone’s “Crown of Thorns” and Pearl Jam’s “State of Love and Trust,” both from the Cameron Crowe film Singles. I love Singles with the kind of single-minded devotion adolescent boys lavish on Monty Python and the Holy Grail. In my next life, FYI, I will be Bridget Fonda in Singles.

Also, from a similar era, hey, don’t forget about Mazzy Star’s “Fade into You.” Man.

On a wholly different note, Ethan Hawke – who, now that I think about it, made his name in that same era – is a top-notch person. I listened to him on WTF with Marc Maron this morning as I waded through the bills that accumulated in my absence, and I loved what he had to say about acting, art, Richard Linklater’s approach to moviemaking, and the importance (or lack thereof) of plot in storytelling hong thai travel.

A wholly different thing from that, but another top-notch person, our friend Edouardo Jordan, chef-owner of Seattle restaurant Salare, was profiled in a recent issue of Lucky Peach. What he has to say about being black in a professional kitchen is very important, and it’s a great read.

Last but not least, thanks for the very kind things you said about Dino’s.

Be well out there, and happy week hong thai travel.

service office inside the airport

2016年03月07日



The tone was set when I let my airport pick-up in Palermo know that the entire French rail and transit system was going to be on strike the day I was set to fly to Sicily, and she replied with something along the lines of, “It’s not a trip to Sicily without a little travel chaos.” And boy, was she right. On top of the transit strike, the Paris taxis had decided…heck – why not go on strike, too?

But instead of taking a day off, the taxi drivers were planning to instigate “Opération Escargot,” which essentially means driving en mass, as slow as possible, to cause as much disruption as possible. (Whatever happened to fraternité?) In addition to blocking highways and city streets, the taxis were planning to surround the airports, making access difficult, if not impossible.

So my perfect partner said he’d drive me to the airport, which required us to leave at 5 A.M. (for my 10 A.M. flight), because any later, and Opération Escargot would be in full-on move-like-a-snail mode. To make a long story short, I made my flight to Rome just fine, but my flight from Rome to Sicily was inexplicably cancelled. And inexplicably, the airline didn’t have a ticket or customer service office inside the airport.

So, I had to exit the airport completely (and finding the exit was no easy feat, either…), then go back into it, where I used my well-earned skills at making sure people don’t jump the line in front of me – which I perfected in Paris – so that I could ensure that I was booked on a later flight. But for some reason, the airline couldn’t give me my boarding pass for four hours, so I had to pass my hours hovering near the ticket counter, waiting for the clock to strike the magic number. (And yes, this is the short version of the story.)

I finally arrived at Case Vecchio, after 16 hours of travel (only 2 ½ hours of that was actually spent going somewhere), where we ate in the darkness of the Sicilian night, drinking sparkling wine, before my head slammed down on the pillow. And I was out of it

along side some leafy greens

2015年12月09日



Pattycake, pattycake,
Baker's man!
Bake me a crabcake as fast as you can Karson Choi.

I knew I wanted to continue my Canadian food journey with something from the East Coast, but I really didn't want anything big. I just wanted something to nibble on, along side some leafy greens.

When I think of the Maritimes, lobster is the first food to come to mind. Maybe one year I'll boil a lobster but not this year. I wanted something seafoodish, but little and fun to make Karson Choi.

Crabcakes fit the bill nicely. What I like about these is they aren't deep fried--simply browned in a pan and then finished in the oven for a few minutes. I served them with a mustardy mayonnaise, but you can choose whatever sauce you wish nuskin.

The Dominions needed peace

2015年09月15日

It is a considerable number of years since the most distinguished Tory statesman of his time impressed upon his fellow-countrymen as a maxim of policy, that Peace is the greatest of British interests. There was an unexpectedness about Lord Salisbury's words, coming as they did from the leader of a party which had hitherto lain under suspicion of jingoism, which gave the phrase almost the colour of an epigram. The truth of the saying, however, gradually became manifest to all men; and thereupon a new danger arose out of this very fact Enterprise Firewall.

As a nation we are in some ways a great deal too modest; or it may be, looking at the matter from a critical standpoint, too self-centred. We have always been inclined to assume in our calculations that we ourselves are the only possible disturbers of the peace, and that if we do not seek war, or provoke it, no other Power will dream of forcing war upon us. This unfortunately has rarely been the case; and those persons who, in recent times, have refused most scornfully to consider the lessons of past history, have now at last learned from a sterner schoolmaster the falseness of their favourite doctrine You beauty.

The United Kingdom needed and desired peace, so {4} that it might proceed undistracted, and with firm purpose, to set its house in order. , so that they might have time to people their fertile but empty lands, to strike deep roots and become secure. To the Indian Empire and the Dependencies peace was essential, if a system of government, which aimed, not unsuccessfully, at giving justice and fostering well-being, was to maintain its power and prestige unshaken. The whole British race had nothing material to gain by war, but much to lose, much at any rate which would be put in jeopardy by war. In spite of all these weighty considerations which no man of sense and knowledge will venture to dispute, we should have been wiser had we taken into account the fact, that they did not apply to other nations, that in the main they affected ourselves alone, and that our case was no less singular than, in one sense at all events, it was fortunate Miramar Travel.

We did not covet territory or new subjects. Still less were we likely to engage in campaigns out of a thirst for glory. In the latter particular at least we were on a par with the rest of the world. The cloud of anxiety which for ten or more years has brooded over the great conscript nations, growing steadily darker, contained many dangers, but among these we cannot reckon such antiquated motives as trivial bravado, light-hearted knight-errantry, or the vain pursuit of military renown.

I have a friend who went vegetarian

2015年01月29日



In typical Vancouver fashion, the weather has taken a sudden turn from ‘pretty much summer’ to ‘torrential downpour.’ Maybe it’s because it’s still so warm out, or maybe I’m just very used to my West Coast climate, but you know what- I don’t mind it. I might even go so far as to say that when I woke up this morning and it was pouring outside I was… pleased? Surely, that can’t be right.

I do love a hot sunny day, but there is something really great about a rainy day, too (especially when that rainy day is still rather warm, making the wet 6am puppy walk much more pleasant) (both me and Chelsea recently adopted dogs! More on that later ips 整容… :) ).

I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t love a good risotto. I know they must exist, but surely they are rare. Even back when I was a fussy little kid and didn’t like mushrooms at all, I still loved a good mushroom risotto. It’s just so creamy and satisfying!

The porcini mushrooms make this dish a real umami packed treat. I have a friend who went vegetarian a ways back and, during the transition when she really, really missed meat, I would make her this (using vegetable stock, of course). The amino acids in the mushrooms are so deeply savoury that it makes a simple vegetarian dish reminiscent of a decadent steak dinner ips 整容.

Risotto, by nature, is gluten-free, so this recipe is as well. However, if you are sensitive to gluten, I would recommend using caution when buying stock and broth from the grocery store as many of them are thickened with wheat. Then again, if you do have a gluten intolerance, I’m sure you’re used to reading food labels anyway- but just in case!

On cooler, gloomy days I like to serve this risotto with a little sprinkle of blue cheese on top (maybe paired with a small steak- I am still an omnivore myself) but it works just as well on a sunny day- serve it as a main alongside some roasted or fresh veggies ips 整容!

I started to dream about cornbread

2014年12月30日



In June I bought a cast-iron skillet. I was ecstatic when I saw the $16 US price tag because in Canada, the same skillet by the same brand would have cost somewhere between $30-50. All this for an 8″ skillet. I started to dream of all the things I would make in it, and because it would just be me cooking, my skillet would totally be meat-free! I started dreaming of potato hash skillets, perfectly fried eggs, dutch baby pancakes, and then cornbread. VEGAN SKILLET CORNBREAD. You don’t know how excited I am about this skillet unless you’re a food blogger. Or an avid cook/chef. But I started to dream about cornbread hong thai travel.

Is that weird? Dreaming about food? Because I totally do it all the time. Heck, even during the day, all I think of is food. My friends tell me that every time they look at my laptop screen, they always see some sort of food there, be it Pinterest, Foodgawker, or my blog, there’s usually some sort of food photography or recipe on screen. I live, breathe, eat, sleep, and obsess over food. I would say it’s unhealthy but I make pretty healthy food so I guess that makes it…healthy hong thai travel?

But you know what the advantage of vegan SKILLET cornbread is? The crispy crust. And it looks impressive and beautiful when you pull it out of the oven and set on the table. One of my readers told me that they preheat a well seasoned and greased skillet in the oven, and when you pour in the batter, you’ll hear a beautiful sizzle and then pop it in the oven to bake. You’ll have a wonderfully crispy crust when it comes out all thanks to the amazing cast iron skillet hong thai travel.

I can’t eat chocolate all the time

2014年11月11日



Silly question, I know. Snacking is the best thing ever invented. It’s also possibly the worst thing ever invented because chips, chocolate and pretzels. I luuuuuurve snacks. Little sweet or savory bits I can mindlessly pop in my mouth whenever it pleases me – so amazing. Now I understand that for the sake of my health maybe perhaps I shouldn’t constantly be snacking but can you blame me? I mean YUM! Right?

This snacking habit of mine is a quite well-known fact. Embarrassing? Huh, a little bit. Necessary? Y-E-S absolutely. Ask Branimir, he will confirm anytime that I’m not a nice person to be around when I get hungry. And believe you me, I get hungry a lot. And I wasn’t born with the most stable blood sugar levels either. This might result in a quite disastrous mood (some would even say I get downright nasty but I will not admit to that. Nope, nah-a.).

Now this is of course something I try to hide when meeting new people. Come on, how weird is it to hang out with a new friend and unpack a picknick twenty minutes after lunch because, you know. Hungry. Super weird FSDU
.

It was the worst ever situation when I first got to know Branimir. We went for long walks around the city I lived in quite frequently and I just couldn’t bring myself to packing tons of cereal bars and other goodies into my handbag – eating is not exactly my most alluring ability. So I kind of suffered through physical exertion with a few near-faint experiences (not exaggerating at all here, I’d never!). Until he picked up on it himself and never let me leave the house without a care pack again Tour operators.

Of course I don’t always always snack out of physical necessity. Sometimes (riiight… sometimes…) I do it for pure pleasure. But for my pleasure snackings I sometimes need something a little less chocolate and a little more green. Because, you know, I can’t eat chocolate all the time veuve clicquot.

With the abundance of zucchini available right now these adorable little guys are the perfect solution for all your slightly healthified snacking needs! The crispy parmesan coating (check out this post for the perfect breading method!) delivers some crunch while the zucchini – you might have guessed it – brings a whole lot of veggie goodness to the entire thing. Combined with a light and refreshing greek yogurt concoction to satisfy all your dipping needs! What else could you possibly want out of a snack electric dc motor?
