The young miss is in transit. As you see above, white has replaced gray and brown. Meanwhile, below, I have some wok-grilled chicken that I first browned, then poached in tomato juice, and then when it reduced, I poured in … Continue reading
In the old days (before adolescence) I frequently prepared a hot breakfast for the young miss. In the modern era, maximizing sleep is a concern. There is often a single-digit number of minutes between waking and running for the bus. … Continue reading
I thought I had the fixings for chicken korma, or one of the variations I spring on the family. I like to use mango. Or pears in a pinch. I forgot to drop raisins in it. So I sautéed garam … Continue reading

Since my big-loss diet of almost two years ago, I’ve enjoyed being lighter. But I’ve also struggled with the aftermath: putting some pounds back on and taking them off again, confronting my pattern to eat to soothe myself, watching when … Continue reading
On the snack menu for Supe Sunday: French Toast laced with lots of vanilla for pre-game. Hummus or salsa, each laced with olives, for the first half. White corn chips and thin-sliced french bread, respectively for the dipping. Ginger beer … Continue reading
What’s for dinner? Leftovers. I had some cooked chicken from the other night. Refried with garlic, corn, and melon seed pasta. Tomato juice and a pat of cream cheese. Simmer till the pasta is done and then sprinkle with basil.
I had lunch with a priest friend today. Some nice Indian food seemed a perfect way to accompany a mealtime chat on the feast of the apostle to India Later tonight, I noticed Jim Martin’s essay on Thomas, plus the … Continue reading
Out of the hospital long enough to look in on 4:45 Mass, hit the grocery store and make dinner for the young miss and myself. How much of this food will the patient* be able to consume upon her return … Continue reading
