All photos : downtown Portland.
I don’t have any good stories to tell, I just don’t want the story about my caveman photo to be at the top.
There’s a waterpark north of here called Great Wolf Lodge and I heard a commercial for it last week and it was like a parody of a radio commercial.
A bunch of chiming voices in a ridiculous chorus.
In the process of seeing if I could find it online using “terrible radio commercial” I pulled up what is apparently a terrible commercial for an Indian casino with such horribly racist comments it’s taken me a moment to catch my breath. What is wrong with people?
We saw Tracy Kidder for our lecture series last week. I enjoyed it but I’ve never read one of his books so I’m not sure I got the full meal deal.
Cadbury eggs are in the stores. I sprinted across the holiday promotional aisles on Friday so I could load up my cart. That’s a lot of sugar in one treat, even for me. But I still love them.
I can’t find the link right now and I can’t remember the exact details. Last week my food site was talking about dumbest questions about food which isn’t really what I want to talk about.
What I wanted to mention is that somehow everyone got fixated on lentils and tons of people mentioned that they’d never heard of lentils until deep into their lives.
I can’t believe there was a time when I didn’t eat lentils. But it doesn’t seem like a food Mom would have made. I bet I started eating them when I was a vegetarian way back in the 90’s. I still love them but my husband is not a huge fan so I mostly make them when he’s not going to be around.
Wow. I really failed at turning that into a post.
Today I finalized a story which is way different than just finishing and that used up about 99% of my brain juice so I’m just coasting until bedtime.
Hmm..I don’t suppose you have a recipe for green (french) lentils? I have a bunch and no clue what to do with them. I made awesome “sloppy joe” lentils from some brown lentils and had them with those homemade flour tortillas.
There, I got something from this post. 🙂
I’m envious that you heard Tracy Kidder speak. I’ve read a couple of his books, and enjoyed them.
I’ve developed a taste for lentils in the past couple years, but I never ate them before that point.
I think the green lentils make the best soups. Another trick for lentil soup is to add a bit of red wine vinegar as you take it off the heat. I thought it was a silly idea when I read it, but I tried it and discovered the world had one less silly idea than I thought.
I like the speckled “Robin’s Eggs,” with the crunchy outer shell and the smooth deliciousness of chocolate inside. I love Easter.
