Two Favorite (Mostly) Vegetarian Meals

Today we had our first mid-70’s degree day since. . . I can’t remember when?

Maybe we’re wimps up north, but 90 degrees feels unbearable? Maybe anger inducing? I’ve lined up all of my favorite hoodies on my dresser and wistfully eye them every morning. Give me that basic bitch fall. Pumpkin spice lattes, oversized hoodies, caramel apples and apple cider doughnuts, Halloween movies. . .

A Sub-Zero Week & Three Meals

I know I should use the UV happy light my work sent me, but I’m not sure if it can fix how I feel about this week of sub-zero weather, the aches and pains of being nine months pregnant, and a pandemic.

It arrived on the day of the failed coup – CAN YOU HOW I FEEL FIX THIS? I yelled as I held it up to CNN.

The cold weather does funny things to us Minnesotans. It makes us tough in cold weather and as comically weak in heat and humidity.

In the winter months, we can chill beverages in the porch or throw a bottle of gin in a pile of snow on the deck. Hot soup and casseroles can also chill outside before storage in the fridge. If you do chill food outside on your deck, watch out for squirrels!

When the weather climbs above 35 degrees, we run errands in sweatshirts and maybe even roll down the car window to cool off on a sunny days.

Take-Out Times: Three Favs

When people ask me what I’m up to this summer, the answers always the name:

“Not much, haha.”

If they ask if we’re going on any trips, the answer’s “Nope lol.”

We’re spending time outside with family and close friends. We’re walking the dog a lot – Trayse is having the best pandemic ever. We’re getting home projects done, and grilling on the deck.

I’m watching a lot of TV. Just started Fleabag and the Babysitters Club re-boot.

Here’s a few take-out things I really enjoyed and would recommend.

My reigning favorite summer meal right now is the Tofu Don bowl with some veggie sushi for later from Kado No Mise that I wrote about earlier.

Three Things: Watchmen + Two Meals

Here are things I wanted to write about; one TV show + two meals.

Watchmen
Watchmen is one of the most incredible show I’ve ever seen. I can’t stopped thinking about it.

I’m not familiar with the comic, so I spent a lot of time frantically Googling backstories for Dr. Manhattan, Silk Spectre, and Ozymandias and reading the Peteypedia.

The first episode opens with a scene that really did happen – the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. Continue reading

Some Midweek Sunshine: Comfort In Orange Cheesecake and Onion Pakoras

This could be end up being the best or the worst month.

I’m trying to just keep calm and carry on.  Hopefully, I will have some breaking news for you soon, but for now, I must surrender myself to patience.

On this midweek eve, I’m drawing from some culinary sunshine enjoyed during this past weekend.  It was all about comfort foods.  And will continue to revolve around comfort foods.  Comfort anything.

It’s a dessert-first type of week.

Nichole’s Fine Pastry, located in downtown Fargo, is my reliable to which I turn to satisfy the occasional, though no-less-fierce sweet tooth.

The pastry case glows with colorful gems that are on par with my favorite Twin Cities bakeries.  And I spent my fair share of time in Rustica and Patisserie 46.

I savored a slice of orange glazed cheese cake, $5, in tiny bites, washing it down with iced tea scented with rhubarb.  Jake nibbled on a pair of petite cannolis, $3.  
That evening, we splurged on our favorite, spicy dishes from Passage to India which still remains our favorite restaurant in Fargo (Mango’s Mexican Grill is a close second).  
Crispy onion pakora, a mixed tandoor platter, bhindi masala, paneer tikka masala, garlic naan, chutneys, raita, and nutty ghee-scented rice.  
A $50 feast with enough leftovers to enjoy several more times throughout the weekend.  
Did I already mention “keep calm and carry on?”
