if i ever started a food blog of food photography and recipes, maybe that’s what i’d call it. 

at the moment, on my left are two homemade chocolate chip cookies, made with the recipe from the Dawson Covenant Church cookbook to which I added peanut butter and oatmeal.  They are especially delicious and gooey after being in the microwave for 20 seconds.

I made them days ago, but thankfully Nat stuck them in the fridge in a tupperware and I forgot about them until today as I was rummaging for a snack.  They are a healthier option to the bag of Starbucks pastries in the backseat of our car waiting to be donated.  Healthier because of the oatmeal, obviously.  Additionally, I say no to those vile pastries every day, and these were like a cheerful surprise hello from a friend.

Furthermore, this is my blog, and I will say what I want to and believe what I say and enjoy my cookies sans explanation.

in the oven is a small bundle of garlic, peeled here and there, a few whole, a few random cloves, on a piece of tinfoil on a cookie sheet, sprinkled with olive oil, salt, and pepper, alongside a piece of oatmeal bread also sprinkled with olive oil and thyme, which i can not wait to eat, and which is my REAL snack. 

things i eat/drink almost every day:

fresh spinach (i have to limit myself, because i’m afraid i’ll be sick of it one day)

a red bell pepper

a mcintosh apple

a slice of oatmeal bread with vegan/non-dairy butter (so that if can be unabashedly ‘slathered.’


at least one pre-made baggie of either celery or green beans that i keep in the fridge as a ‘grab and go’ snack, if you will.  

garlic, in some form, on some thing.

and for dinner, usually some kind of pasta, our recent favorite being a spinach linguine with pesto sauce that we could eat for days and days and days.

It has been fun lately to learn more about cooking and nutrition.   I fear that I am also coffee-addicted.  I spent Nat’s lunch hour with him today talking in the car  and we both realized mid-morning that we were feeling really blah and tired and lazy – and then realized we hadn’t had any coffee yet, and once we had, all was well.

 Neither of us believes in being ‘addicted’ to, or dependent on anything, even little things like sleeping with a fan or having something be just-so, or a ‘not being able to function until and i’ve had my morning caffeine’ mentality, and we both thought “uh-oh.” 

everything in moderation!


with cheese,
