A few snippets


Now that Greg and I are in Alaska, there are just a few things to appreciate...


Like spectacular views out the back door...


6-week old husky puppies that live in an open air pen next door...


Kitchens on the go...


and tasty home-cooked meals: 4 carrots, 4 ribs celery, a yellow onion, one block of tofu (fried in vegetable oil), obscene quantities of garlic and ginger, a can of coconut milk, jalapeno pepper powder, lime juice, cilantro and Basmati rice.


Hope to eat some fresh-caught salmon soon.

Well well well well

There's been a little time to cook - some hummus, a tasty vegetable dish, several delicious al fresco summer meals and grilled things. There was time for a one year wedding anniversary -- with a spectacular meal to follow. There's been a little time to do other things -- like laundry, showers, sleeping, giving Tori a good ear rub or stopping her from eating our dinners before we do. What there hasn't been time for is photographing / editing / writing / blogging / about it all. This whole "dissertation" thing is keeping occupied. It is probably going to keep me on my toes until the thesis defense, which will be first week of September. In the meantime, I'll just be trying to keep up to date with everybody's else's interesting food blogs, and maybe I'll pop in here every once and a while. We'll be traveling in California from 6/19-6/25 and then up in Alaska from 6/25-7/4 and I'll definitely post some pictures from that trip...


P.S. I felt very sad about leaving this blog both unattended and undecorated, so here are a few interesting photographs. A, errr, uhm, 10-22mm wide angle lens may or may not have been recently purchased... although there are no wide angle photos contained below, I hope to have some good ones soon. Oh, actually, the picture of the forest at the bottom uses the wide angle lens, but I hope there'll be better ones to talk about.
