Tomato Basil

This is what I have been eating (and drinking) recently:                                              

It’s That Time of Year Again!

September 30, 2013
The BUD.

Listen up, peeps!  It has been two years since I experienced the first bloom on my Night-Blooming Cereus plant (yes it is an experience).  Last year I had several more on the same plant (the 3rd propogation from my first plant), and a few on my original plant (propogated from the plant of a great friend’s […]

Aioli Part II

September 21, 2013

As I mentioned, I am trying not to waste anything in my fridge, and I had just enough of the  Lemon and Horseradish Aioli leftover to make an intensely gluttonous BLAT (Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado, and Tomato sandwich)!     This sandwich would be delicious with just the above, if you aren’t a meat lover!   […]

Roast Beef Sandwich on Country White Toast with Lemon & Horseradish Aioli

September 18, 2013
Roast Beef Sandwich

  I  rarely buy cold cuts, mainly because I can’t eat them fast enough, but on a whim I got some thinly-sliced roast beef from Fresh Direct.  I decided to  spice  it up a bit and put a little  kick  in the pants of the old run-of-the-mill beefy ‘wich, by making a delicious lemon and […]

How Happy Are Your Herbs?

August 19, 2013

  After trying several different recommendations on how to store fresh herbs like dill, cilantro, parsley, mint and basil in the fridge, by far the best luck I have had, is with this method: trim the ends of the bunch, like you would a bouquet of flowers (DO NOT wash herbs until ready to use – and then […]

Happy Birthday to Me!

Bombay Sapphire Rocks Glass by Bottlehead

Well, it isn’t my birthday, but it feels like it!  I ordered a set of the Bombay Sapphire Rocks Glasses by Bottlehead (pictured above) a few weeks ago, and I got them today!  I went right out and got some Bombay Sapphire Gin, limes, and tonic water, so I could christen my new babies immediately. […]

Dinner: Bison Burger

August 12, 2013
Bison Burger

Yum, yum!! I got some ground bison meat from  Fresh Direct  on Saturday, so I thought I’d give it a go for dinner last night!  Topped with an heirloom tomato from the farmers’ market, a slice of red onion, a sprinkle of gruyere cheese, ketchup, and on stone-ground/whole-wheat, sourdough toast (also from the farmers’ market) […]

‘Mission’ Accomplished

August 7, 2013

It’s been a  very  long time since I’ve been in the mood to post.  Maybe it’s the nice weather, the fact that I am engaged in a 9-5 work-like activity again (and therefore less scatterbrained), or perhaps it was fabulous company of my brooklynite girly pals the other night, but here I am! After about a year of scheduling […]
