in pilsen. we were working on frei designs stuff.

red boots proved to be good for cooking snacks.

i also made curried rice crispy treats (easy recipe- normal rice crispy treats, add two tablespoons of curry powder– i found mine to have a bit too much cumin, but otherwise they were awesome- and inspired by my new favorite place, the violet hour

yum

let’s start from the top, shall we?

again, i have neglected my fair blog. baby, i’m sorry. i think about you and wince like maybe how some people do when they don’t put money in the salvation army thing outside the grocery store. so i’m back, but i’m not making any promises. i’m around, you’re around sometimes it works out. usually on a tuesday after work, when i need even more fun qt in front of a computer screen. we can begin with yesterday. i filled up on winter skirts at the thrift store by my house. then i went to see margot at the wedding which was sad but good and funny like the squid and the whale (same director i think) then i made two soups: curry cauliflower and carrot cardamom. which should prove to be quite handy since it’s christmas season and i’ve given up buying lunch so i can buy the people i love books and pictures! i went to be early last night, it was nice.

let’s move backwards to sunday.
sunday began with me making pizza dough.

and a sunday morning chocolate souffle

on friday we went to sushi with lucy and tony, who are both funny and tall. lucy is smart and has great earrings, tony is also smart but substitute the earrings for some legos.
this is a bad picture of a delicious scallop salad.
