Weekly Wanderings {week 13}

What’s happening in my world this week…

The best pancakes I have ever made (recipe will be posted… eventually. We all know how this goes.), with macerated strawberries.

… in the middle of the night.

Because I’m a grown-up, and I’m allowed to? 😀

I’m conflicted about this green grass. On one hand, we’re in a drought, but on the other hand it’s recycled water, so… maybe it’s okay? I don’t know. Can we just get a bunch of rain already so I don’t have to worry myself about these sorts of things?

The grass is always greener...


I was stretching after a run, when Son walked in the room. “I can do the splits, too! … nailed it.”

Fried eggs. Old electric apartment stove.

When you’re still up writing code at 2am because you’re working with a team in China… leftover pancakes come in handy.

Late night working snack


Tried the mango flavor of mochi ice cream for the first time, and it’s now my favorite flavor.

Also, if you’re not stabbing your mochi ice cream with a chopstick and eating it like a popsicle… you’re doing it wrong. 😉

Perfect avocado.


Even better on fish tacos.

I’m very morel-istic. (Ba-dum ba! I’ll be here all week.)


It’s been ten years (!!!) since Son and I went on our first date.

We celebrated by making a most-delicious chicken, morel, and rice dish for dinner… and then working late into the night, as we do.

To make up for all the work we had to do on our anniversary, we went out to a local Greek restaurant the next day.

Mediterranean dips with pita bread

Very tasty Mediterranean dips with pita bread (the baba ganouj was by far our favorite).

Son was craving a good steak, so we shared the filet mignon. Tasty!

Have a wonderful week!

What kind of foodie are you? (I’m somewhere between the Outer Borough Striver and the Feudo-DJ.)

Important reminders for you, and me, and all of us. Don’t be a dick.
