i was feeling bummed today (because i might have to cancel my canning class, because i wanted to bike around but it’s thunderstorming sporadically) so i started cleaning my room (!!!) which is something i never do and i’m doing my ~homework~ i guess but my homework is like analyzing the doris anthology so it’s not like it’s like, work, and i paid a bill and i feel better, so that’s good
this is the shirt my mom made when she used to make shirts every year for going to the beach and it’s apparently from the beach trip i was conceived on, she leant it to me and i accidentally took it to athens, and sorry mom if you didn’t want the internet to know that story but it’s great.
on a weirdly related note i didn’t have the mountain goats album tallahassee before and i just downloaded it and i’ve been listening to it repetitively, only that, i only have patience for tallahassee and the sunset tree. it’s related because i was born in tallahassee, and some other things about my birth are it was with a midwife, are you really surprised? but my sister was not, this maybe explains a lot about us.
my purple jalapeño flowered overnight!
i don’t think y’all understand the full severity of that “no cooking with oil” fatfreevegan thing
she had a recipe for a roux where SHE USED WATER
as a reward for eating healthy today i am ruining it all by baking cookies and eating all the cookies, probably
the red beans and rice recipe was very good but the author of that fat free vegan blog is against cooking with olive oil
…i was confused why the recipe was sautéed in nothing so i sautéed my vegetables in butter
i made red beans and rice for dinner! i used this recipe, plus satan himself, ofc. delicious!
my dinner plans this week are red beans and rice and sweet potato/paneer curry, both together should feed me all week, wish me luck! new recipes for me~
at first I was like where are punx getting peaches that are worth eating… but then I remembered Georgia… and that not everyone is stuck eating fruit that has been in a truck for 3 days and is probvaly gross
I like seeing your garden because In The Ring Of Fire where I live is really inhospitable to gardens and we can only have cacti and succulents. I like your plants a lot and I like how you talk about them.
for breakfast/lunch every day i used to eat a chocolate muffin, usually just a muffin, and then eat like one real meal at dinner, but right now i am eating greek yogurt with pecan granola and two peaches from a fruit stand between home and folly beach, and some ~local honey~ i think i might be a health??????
i apparently did not take photos but the goldenberries are doing great too, they flopped over and i am considering purchasing many trellises
also these are my cucumber babies, i planted them from seed in late may—that might be too late but they grow big every day so i have confidence in them. i should probably separate them soon! i also have small okra plants and mexican sour gherkins but those are much smaller and i think i may have actually planted them too late.
this tigermelon was like the only thing i could get to sprout when it was way cold in march, and it got to be the size of two leaves and then just sat there yellow forever but now it mysteriously grew more leaves??? maybe it was too cold for it. i was pretty sure it was dead.
