the quotidian (8.31.20)

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

Peanut Butter Cream: I can hardly stand the wait. 

Off-the-cuff summer supper.

Nectarine galette.

Fruit face.

A cute wee box of veggies. 

And a few more.

We aren't the only ones benefitting from our daughter's farm job.

The college guys heard we had one hamburger left over from supper. 

Setting up my new phone for me: I (literally and accidentally) composted the old one.

He understands things I don't. 

This same time, years previous: it all adds up, they're getting it, the new bakery, walking the line, oatmeal jacked up, roasted tomato sauce, canned tomatoes, classic pesto.


  1. your kids fascinate me. The childhood years were fun, but my 30-something kids and their husbands are my favorite people ever. What's in the off-the-cuff meal. Looks delicious and maybe something I could motivate myself to make :). I'm curious why your lucky daughter gets to bring home so much produce. What a perk!!

    1. The off-the-cuff meal: grilled onions, peppers, and sausages tossed with pasta, lemon, olive oil, cherry tomatoes, parm, basil, and salt and pepper.

      Re the produce: I'm not sure! She's allowed to bring veggies home for us, but sometimes the farm has a lot of leftovers that will get composted if nobody claims them, and so she claims them!

  2. Thanks Jennifer. I will talk it over with my general malaise and convince it this dinner will be worth it. :)

  3. Hoping all is okay with you and yours, I noticed you've not posted in a while.
    Much love from Liz. (Wales UK)
