the quotidian (7.4.16)

Quotidian: daily, usual or customary; 
everyday; ordinary; commonplace

A daily (oh dear) craving.

For this salad.

This tart: rosemary lemon pastry with fresh cranberry filling.

Slicing a side.

Roasted veggies are the best.

Jumping carrots.

Frying garlic, ginger, and chicken (for this): protecting my hair from Kitchen Stink: 


To tool around the driveway: permission granted.
(This is the fastest I've gone in two months!)

Oh, did you want to sit here? 

This same time, years previous: the summer's first trip, smash hit, creamy cauliflower sauce, when the wind blew, our 48-hour date, the big apple, berry almond baked oatmeal, linguine with shrimp and lime-cilantro pesto, spaghetti with Swiss chard, raisins, and almonds, cottage potatoes, and homemade yogurt.


  1. I'd like to know more about 'slicing a side'.
    Is that something you made/cured?

    1. Lee cured our bacon for us. I partially thaw it and then have my son slice it razor thin. We repackage the slices in smaller amounts and then pop it back in the freezer.
