the quotidian (2.27.17)

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

We've eaten nearly an entire pig and I still haven't found a pulled pork recipe I like.

Just the way I like it: swimming in butter and honey.

Birthday breakfast.

With caramel, chocolate, and pecans: it shouldn't have been disappointing, but it was.

An impulse purchase: have you tried it?



Why bother with a sofa if you have a horse?

I always thought she had horns...
(Just kidding!)

He changed the brake pads.

Not working.

Buzz off.

Outdoor bedroom.

Flying his cheesy freak flag.

A third teenager!

This same time, years previous: old-fashioned molasses cream sandwich cookies, roasted cauliflower soup, Oreo, the quotidian (2.25.13), the quotidian (2.27.12), for my daughter, creamy garlic soup, and Grandma Baer's caramel popcorn.


  1. How would you rate the Root??

  2. Please post it if you find a good pulled pork recipe! There has to be a good one out there somewhere! My Mom made delicious BBQ sauce from scratch as in no ketchup when I was a kid but she has no recollection of it. I think if I could find that recipe I would have it licked. Store bought BBQ sauce and the ones based on ketchup are just no good but others have been crazy sweet.

    Happy Birthday to your new teen! I loved having a houseful of teens. Enjoy! It is over so fast.

  3. Henry loves the pizza birthday cake! Happy Birthday, Caroline!

    1. That's an ice cream cake---total sugar overload!

  4. Have you enjoyed the Root? I thought the Rhubarb tea by the same brewery \disstillary looked interesting, and possibly worth trying.

  5. Pork carnitas all the way. Stew it in onion, garlic, peppers, spices, lime juice. Shred it up and put a thin layer on a baking sheet to broil in the oven. Fold it into warm tortillas with lime juice and avocado.

  6. I liked the Art in the Age boozifications: tried them maybe 2 years ago? But they gave me headaches. So I didn't buy more.

  7. It's not BBQ pulled pork, but I use this recipe all the time in my crock pot. Makes for great homemade "Chipotle" bowls at home with rice, lettuce, beans and corn salsa. The lime is a must at the end of the recipe.
