what I've been eating while i am not writing posts

Pesto with toasted almonds and a little more grated Parmesan than the recipe required.
Peach-pear Italian soda with ice and gin, and then a little more gin.
Bread fresh from the oven, spread thick with red currant-rhubarb preserves.
Blackberries by the handful, still hot from the sun.
The daily ice cream.
Iced coffee, cold-brewed, with heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk.
Tiny balls of just-made mozzarella, quick-chilling in an ice water bath.
Hard-boiled eggs with their yolks, on the same day they were laid.
Bucketfuls (bucketsful? Bucketsfuls?) of buttery, salty popcorn.
Mostly ice ice-water, splashed with essential oils of lemon, orange, and grapefruit.
Chicken salad sandwiches (tarragon, green onions and mayo).
Lettuce salad with green onion, blackberries and raspberries, and chevre, dressed with cassis and red wine vinegar.
Raspberries and red currants.

(pardon the scant posting, but it's summer, and I'm enjoying the seasonal eating.)


  1. i want to come to your house and eat all of those things too. please?]
    by the way ... your comment section doesn't like me.

  2. My comments don't like anybody lately. But I like you.

  3. I'm just commenting to see if the comment section likes me...

  4. I am a fan of the daily ice cream. I've been eating a faux Dove bar from Breyers called Carb Smart, so it doesn't spike my sugar. It's close enough to kill the craving!

  5. why aren't we neighbors?!?! sounds amazing. =)

  6. Yummy yummy yummy! You have inspired me! Taking a chicken out of the freezer to try out that salad!


    PS - The Googles do not like me either. :(

  7. This is all because of the broken backs and no sex business, right? Because seriously, what's a girl to do in that situation if she can't orgasmically eat? And it seems you've been doing just that. You are definitely eating better than me, girlfriend. But we've got no broken backs over

  8. @ eglin clan- seems the googles are smiling on you!

    @ Michelle- there are two lovely houses for sale on my street. It's a nice little street.

    @Mary - I've been working on Hershey's Cappucino Crunch.
