RRRRRAWR! (Actually, that’s just him yawning. But doesn’t he look fierce? I need me some of that.) Seriously, though – very lazy day. Lots of napping going on. Laziness. Good for me. Made a frittata (below). Was trying to improve on my own technique, after sampling someone else’s at brunch. Very satisfying. Do you ever [...]

Yesterday when I was bagging up my kitchen garbage to take out, I spilled garbage juice all over my work pants and wool socks. Nasty. I immediately took them off and soaked them in a bucket of water with a few glugs of vinegar added, to help deodorize them. I’ll be laundering them today… First [...]
The above photo was taken early in the morning while I was preparing my breakfast and lunch. I lay on my kitchen floor beside my refrigerator to take it. This is the towel (rag, really) that I use to wipe my hands while I’m working in the kitchen. I change it every day for a [...]
I store produce in two glass-fronted cupboards in my kitchen. Each cupboard holds several bowls on shelves, and to a friend of mine, it looks like the bowls magically replenish themselves every week. I wish. This whimsical idea has been entertaining me, though. What if I really did have magical bowls? What if they really [...]
I spilled these blueberries yesterday morning all over the supermarket floor while I was grocery shopping. I bought them and brought them home anyhow (I hate waste), and disinfected them by soaking them first in vinegar (straight, not diluted) and then in 3% hydrogen peroxide. This food disinfection technique is supposed to be as good [...]
I haven’t taken a photo of my kitchen sink for a while. Huh. Maybe I should start again. ___ See these posts on Tumblr.
I recently started eating (organic, free-range) eggs again, after being vegan for several months. (I’ve been vegetarian for 26 years.) I wanted to increase my protein consumption without increasing my carbs. Unfortunately there have been several heat waves this summer, which has meant that I’ve been focusing on cooking methods that require the least possible [...]
A few days ago I ran out of olive oil, and asked my mom if she would look for some more for me, when she was running an errand to the grocery store. She called me from the store, saying she didn’t see the brand I’d mentioned, but did I want another kind that was [...]
It’s been a while since I’ve taken regular photos of my kitchen sink. I used to shoot them every morning while I made my breakfast and bag lunch. I still love looking at vegetable scraps in my kitchen sink, though. They’re so colourful, and textural, and full of endless patterns and rhythms. I appreciate vegetables.
As I’m writing this on Saturday morning, June 16, I’ve just finished putting away my groceries. I love Saturday mornings – my shopping routine, the comforting feeling of having fully stocked fridge, and cleaning up my kitchen after everything is put away. I’ve been making some gradual changes to my diet since this photo project [...]
