RE: DINNER - I'm making Thai green curry for dinner. And it's a bit more like the fiery blazes of hell hotter than I thought it would turn out. Right on! Now if Bryan would only get his butt out of the bedroom where he's trying on new clothing I'd be all set. This is what I get for marrying a man voted "best dressed" in his senior year of high school.


RE: SORTING - I spent around two hours today going through boxes that have been sealed up since we moved into the house three years ago. Some of the stuff I was thrilled to see (hey, that telephone we've been looking for! The sculptural tiles from Arcosanti!). And others... well... let's just say that of the three boxes I went through I'm keeping one box worth. I had a long black Australian oilskin trench coat that I'd been desperately missing and once I pulled it out I was rather "eh" about it and decided to garage sale it instead of keeping it.


RE: OLD FRIENDS - I found an old (1992/1993) summer band camp buddy (SHUT UP!) online this afternoon on a whim and shot her an email. I got this as a reply:

Hi Lindsay!

Of COURSE I remember you. Duh. You were one of my best camp buddies! You lived in Hacienda Heights, and one time I came to visit you and watched you and your marching band compete. That was fun!

I just watched an old Arrowbear video for the first time a while were on it and I was like, "Aww, Lindsay...I wonder what she's been up to."  =)

Things are good for me. You still playing at all? Where are you living?

Nice to hear from you! And a belated congratuations on your marriage! Yay!


Yay, indeed. She's living locally, so I hope to see her soon to catch up.


Oh, goody. Fashion boy is out ofthe bedroom. Yum!
I've said it many times, but the people I work with have been so, so good to me. Yesterday, H (one of the secretaries) brought in a box of creamsicles for me, just because she thought I would like them, since she liked having ice cream every day when she was pregnant. But she commented that she gained 60 pounds with her son (!) so she got me the kind that were made with LF ice milk so they're only 100 calories each. Was that great of her or what?!?

So I had my first orange creamsicle just now. And it was gooood.

I got the recipe from my MIL, who adapted it from a recipe she saw on foodtv.

Pizza Bowls
makes 4 large servings

4 handfuls of cheese (I used provelone)
2 portabella mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1/2 a red onion, sliced
1 lb. ground turkey or beef
1 jar tomato sauce
spices (I used garlic powder, basil, and onion powder)
1 ball pizza dough, divided into 4 parts (I made it fresh, but you can get it in a pillsbury tube if needed)

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Brown the meat on the stovetop.
3. Spray 4 oven-safe bowls with non-stick cooking spray.
4. Layer all ingredients in each bowl in the order written above. Stretch each pizza dough portion until it covers the inner part of the bowl (don't wrap it around the lid).
5. Bake for 30 minutes.
6. Turn up to 400 degrees for a few minutes to brown the crust.
7. Remove from oven and invert onto a plate.

So good. Soooooooo goooooood. And it made the house smell heavenly.
I have long been of the opinion that avocados are one of the best foods in existence, and I buy them every week. We probably go through about 5 (small ones) a week since I always add diced avocados to our salads or serve slices on the side if we're doing Mexican food.

Here I was, sitting hungrily at work, annoyed at having forgotten to bring my standard yogurt for breakfast and thinking of drinking my afternoon "snack" of V8 to tide me over, when one of our professors walked in. He came into the office, and set down a bag while saying "anyone want some avocados?" It was a good sized bag, full of ripe and ready fruits fresh from his tree. I took two to bring home, and let everyone else have at them. A few minutes later I went back and there were still several sitting there, looking lonely and forelorn at the bottom of the bag. So I took one, broke it in half (it was that soft!) put one of the halves back into the bag and ate the flesh off the remaining half with a spoon.

Oh. Oh, my. It was goooood.

A tall glass of water to wash it down and I'm now sitting here very contended and consumately satiated. Would that I could do this every morning.
