Domesticity. And icons.

Some winter Sundays, all I can bring myself to do is putter in my kitchen. Since E and I are trying to eat a much healthier diet, I want vegetables and legumes to make up at least 50% of what we eat. So, to that end, I spend a lot of kitchen time making vegetable preparations to be incorporated into more complex dishes later.

I parboil greens and freeze them. I cook up dried beans, and stash them for later in the week. I've got a jar of lentils sprouting, and little zip-lock bags full of finely julienned broccoli stalks, radishes, turnips and green beans. I plan to start a jar of preserved lemons later this week. When I look around at the abundance in my kitchen, I feel productive, and very fortunate.

Also, everyone should check out ericrowe post about our new bedroom! It looks like an opium den. So cool.

And now, your irregular installment of icons. Here's one for redsteve. It's a Bon Voyage present, as he's doubtless on his way to the Big Easy any day now.



Also:

E: Making an icon for minniethemoocha?
Me: Yep. They say she's a low-down hoochie-coocha...
E: Yeah, but she has a heart as big as a whale.
Me: She should really see a cardiologist about that.

This covers the interests "muppets" and "curmudgeons":



Hope you like it, sweetie. If you prefer, I made you a simpler version without the text, here.

Happy Monday, tout le monde. The hated month of January is nearly at an end! (Unfortunately, it is second in loathsomeness only to February. But at least it's a short one.)

Another suggested yummy winter weekend pasttime: surrounding oneself with seed catalogs and a notebook and a nice hot cup of tea. Few things whisper Spring so sweetly.

(btw - that website is *fabulous*, thanks for the link)

Ah. You mean the Hungry Tiger food blog? She is so very cool. She's a veggie and she's in Metro DC Maryland. I get so many great ideas from her.

See you tomorrow, my anam cara. *Smooch*
