Pretty Music and Updates

Joey loves Sharon Van Etten's music. It is very pretty. I like this song in particular. I know Beth is a fan too. This is for you guys.

I know I didn't post much this week. It was not a big food week for me; actually it was more of a slow, take-out instead of cooking kind of week. Hey, it happens.

Electronically I gained a new (home) computer and lost my work comp (Tolva 'prophet of numbers' R.I.P). It's the circle of life you know?

Anyway, I will be back with more fun tidbits next week, so keep checking back here. In the meantime, enjoy your weekend and this song 'For You,' indeed.

Chinese Take Out

Last night I had the best take out from my local place, Chinese Musician (serving Greenpoint since 1982). I love that tag line. Hey, if they have been around for almost 30 years, then they are doing something right.

Anyway, I ordered seafood dumplings in soup and cabbage with black mushrooms, because I am trying to eat like the USDA says I should. It was da bomb. I am looking forward to finishing it tonight.

P.S. I will buy a beer for anyone who can tell me what show this block was featured on.

Don't Laugh

Picture source: wikipedia

Last night was one of those nights where I had been chatting on the phone and ended up kind of half napping, half scolding myself to go brush my teeth and floss before I passed out with the lights on. I was also thinking about Berkshire pork. I guess now you know what my dreams are made of.

Why Don't You...

1. Do like Beth and eat kale like salad. Just massage raw kale leaves with salt and olive oil. They keep well in the fridge prepared like this.

2. Add bacon to your chili like Joey does. Yum!

3. Saute mushrooms with chipotle chilies and eat them taco style like me.

4. Pan roast pork chops with green peppers and tomatoes like my mom.

5. Share some other ideas with the rest of us!
