Proud Kitten [05 Mar 2010|04:53am]

Last night, Oops discovered that she could climb to the top of the closet. She was so proud and so destroyed everything.

Dear Orlando, [03 Mar 2010|05:46pm]

Thank you for having one of the highest pollen counts in the country today. That's really helped me out a lot. Achoo.

Love,

Rachel

The One Good Thing About Miami [28 Feb 2010|11:28am]

The place they played last night (Sweat Records) had my favorite (now out of production) Kidrobot Yummy Breakfast keychains! I bought two and they were (luckily) two I did not have!

We also had a pretty good time on the way down, but I'll get to that later...

Happy Dinnertime! [26 Feb 2010|03:50pm]

We ate such a happy dinner last night! (It was mostly an accident, but once I realized it was making a face, I had to make it happen.) The ingredients of the face are as follows:

Eyes: Papusas (recipe from Vegan Lunch Box Around the World), topped with cheese, chipotle salsa, and sour cream


Mouth: Frozen southwest veggie blend from Target


I think the vegan gods were punishing me for de-veganizing this recipe by making me mess up on the ingredients. I couldn't find anything labeled "masa harina" as the recipe demanded, so I bought fine corn meal. Alas, I made water mixed with corn meal! But I added seasoning, cooked it down, and made it work. Another score for Vegan Lunch Box Around the World!

Google Voice [25 Feb 2010|06:56pm]
This is the robot-transcribed content of a voicemail left on my Google Voice number by an overseas call center that is constantly trying to reach someone else:

"Message horse, obviously. So Mitchell, Hi dude, there's Robert Half. Just call me back at87720968322. I repeat, the number is 8772 a night. 6832. This is disconcerting an important businessmatter. So do bye bye. If I have a nice day."

Obviously, message horse. That goes without saying.

My Half of the Tummy Pals [23 Feb 2010|06:44pm]

Luckily I had this nice fella scanned, so he can befriend this other tummy.

My Lunch This Week! [23 Feb 2010|09:43am]

I'm on lunch and just ate some of this, so I thought I would share. I made a huge batch of pasta salad last night, inspired by a recipe from my aunt from years & years ago. I only vaguely remember what she included, but I know it was yummy and featured broccoli, mozzarella, and obviously, pasta.
 
So, mine:
 
8oz (or so) rotini, cooked until al dente, drained, rinsed under cold water
Fresh broccoli florets (I used a huge stalk)
Grape tomatoes, chopped in half (about 2/3 package)
Mozzarella, cubed (about 1/2 a block)
Lightlife Smart Deli "pepperoni" (about 1/2 a box)
Asiago Balsamic vinaigrette (any Italian style dressing would do), to taste
 
Mix. Enjoy! It's super-simple, but I never would've thought of mixing those ingredients on my own, so I thought I would share.

Top Five Comedies of the 90's [18 Feb 2010|05:00pm]
For some strange reason, our household just went off on a complete tangent and started the long process of making a Top Five Comedies of the 90's list. 

Here it is, in no particular order:

Wayne's World
The Big Lebowski*
South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut
Office Space
Dumb & Dumber*

(*NOTE: Not every member of our household voted for every movie on our list. You could probably guess who didn't vote for these two.)

Homeade Stromboli! [18 Feb 2010|03:16pm]

Last night I made stromboli for the first time. It was based on the recipe from Vegan Lunch Box Around the World, but with different veggies (and with cheese). I made mine with zucchini, mushrooms, onion, and mozzarella. I thought it was going to explode in the oven, but it was still basically sealed up.

I highly recommend Vegan Lunch Box Around the World (and veganlunchbox.blogspot.com)!

Neighborhood Quackers [16 Feb 2010|04:37pm]
This is what it's like all of the time in front of my mom's apartment. I'm jealous of the quackers walking right up to her front door. She hates them because they start their quacking at 6am.

Destination Destin! [12 Feb 2010|04:20am]

I actually get a week off for Spring Break this year! And I will be spending the majority of it on an actual vacation! At the beach! 

My mom and dad used to own a house in Destin, FL before I was born and shortly afterwards. My dad hasn't seen it since then, so he booked a condo and invited us to join them (him + stepmom). They'll get to escape the snow, and I'll get to spend the week in a part of FL I would never otherwise visit. Plus, Brian and I just bought the book Oddball Florida, and a lot of the attractions are up that way. It will be an interesting week!

A Beautiful (Chilly) FL Day [10 Feb 2010|02:31pm]

The thing on my head is the kercheif I made over the weekend with my birthday knitting needles. It was my first experience increasing stitches and using circular needles. I love the circular needles! They were especially useful to transport the project to Brian's parents' house (where they watched the Superbowl and I sat in an easy chair knitting like someone's grandmother). Now I need to find more excuses to use my new needles. Suggestions?

Two Things [09 Feb 2010|05:57am]
(The following is not a paid advertisement; simply a bit of nerdiness.)

Pictured here are a couple of my favorite things this week: Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel & Badger Sleep Balm.

 I'm not an insomniac, but I do often have trouble telling my brain to settle down when it's sleepy time. The balm smells great and subtly nudges me to calm down. And no matter how much sleep I get, I've inherited a bit of the poofy/dark-circle-y eye syndrome, and the gel really seems to help with that.

That's the end of today's (unpaid) product placement. Stay tuned for next time!
