This is what our house looks like after we receive a shipment of radial necklaces. Each necklace is laser cut from wool felt covered in masking tape, leaving us with hundreds of cellular tape cutouts that take on a life of their own as a sticky aggregate.
There’s a thick layer of snow here in Saugerties and the temperature is a brisk 1 degree F. Yesterday we spent sometime outside. I took many pictures of snow covered winter branches, while Jesse built a 1 person snow dome in the back yard. We hope you are enjoying some winter weather as well. happy holidays!
We just experienced our first Los Angeles earthquake. A very slight tremor, which I interpreted as pluot falling off the bookcase, was actually an earthquake of 4.5 centered about 30 miles from here.
I made this “chinese-style” dinner last night wishing for something like a hot garlic sauce dish but not wanting to go out. I looked for a few recipes online to get some idea, and then I just set out on my own. In the end it was pretty tasty, but it could definitely use some tweeking.
A package of tofu
Cornstarch to batter to the tofu
Some good veggies: we used half an onion, a green pepper, 3 scallions, a crown of brocolli
For the sauce:
1-2 cups vegetable stock or water (we used a cup a stock and then thought it was yucky and used water)
3-4 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp cornstarch for thickening
3 tbsp sugar
1 metric ton garlic
1 metric ton ginger
~ 1 tbsp sriracha hot sauce Read the rest of this entry »
This is Chuck. We didn’t name him, nor is he our cat. Apparently he and his mom Muppets once belonged to someone who lived in our apartment. When this renter moved out, he abandoned his two cats. We’ve been feeding them since we moved here in June. Hopefully we’ll be able to afford to take them to the vet soon.
This is a very simple recipe for an amazing vegan strawberry milkshake. This is the best vegan beverage ever and probably one of the best beverages period. Jesse has made this with regular milk before, and it’s not nearly as good as the vegan version. Here’s the recipe.
1 cup plain silk soy milk
3-5 frozen strawberries
2 T sugar
Shove all the contents in a blender and blend. You’re done. Drink your delicious beverage. Make as many servings as can fit in your blender. Note that the exact number of strawberries depends upon the size and quality of your strawberries. You will have to experiment a little.
