So far, the only casualties of our move have been one shattered serving bowl and a crushed box of pastina, which left teeny, tiny star-shaped pasta all over my canned goods, like so much semolina confetti.
But it took me an entire week to locate the knives (why so long? I have no idea), so we haven’t been eating much in the way of home-cooked food lately. Instead, our meals have consisted of frozen burritos, big wedges of the key lime pie my mother dropped off one afternoon and lots and lots of tomato sandwiches.
Slowly but surely, the kitchen is coming together and I’m looking forward to cooking real meals again, in a space that isn’t full of half-empty cardboard boxes. I’ll be back with a recipe next week.
In the meantime, here’s a peek at a few corners of the Internet I’ve been enjoying lately. I hope you enjoy them too.
~ Who knew cucumber tendrils could be so fascinating?
~ China produces lots of apple juice, but the Chinese aren’t the ones drinking it.
~ Did you know the Queen Anne’s Lace you see along the roadside can be used as a dried spice?
~ And lastly, eating “white dirt” in Georgia.
