Questions I have, answers I not.

Etiquette: you have been out walking in your lunchbreak. You are listening to your ipod and generally grooving. As you return to your workspace, you realise a quick bathroom stop is in order. Do you (a) return your ipod to your desk and then double back to go to the bathroom; or (b) wear your […]

[Winter-related metaphor-based title not found]

I love winter: it’s grey and breezy and sweetly cool, and the nights are cold and good for sleeping. I love the poetry of the world turning inward and resting; a cycle of inner growth and patience, etc.   But I’ve been reading foodgawker.com, and it is pretty damn clear that in the Northern Hemisphere, […]

Short words on the matter of muesli

Oats make me happy. You may have guessed. Breakfast makes me happy. You may have guessed. Home-toasted muesli is just the ant’s pants. I toasted a batch today and added bran flakes and dried pineapple. Stand back, citizens, she’s out of control! Deliciousness awaits me every morning. I do have a warning: be vigilant in […]

Autumn cooking — part 2

I’ve been reading a lot of Oh She Glows lately: her cooking looks awesome and she clearly has a place in her heart for oats equal to mine. All her biscuits and cakes and slices look so nourishing, full of oats and seeds and fruit. Ooh yeah, toast my granola. I love finding new ways […]

Autumn cooking — part 1

It’s been a stockpiling day. It’s also been one of the most intensely autumnal days you can imagine. Seriously, if some really lazy hack movie director wanted a setting that bellowed “AUTUMN” at the viewer, they would have designed a day like today. Cool, breezy, leaves everywhere; frost all over the car this morning and […]

New Adventures in Oats

As I wended my windy wallowing way around the (w)internet, nibbling blogs and sampling, uh, other blogs, I came across Mostly Eating. It’s an incredibly pretty food blog and I’m a sucker for a pretty blog, but then I spotted a post about breakfasts. Well, by now you should know how I feel about breakfasts […]

The things you learn (also shouting)

(1) Compost is far more interesting than I ever thought it would be. That stuff blows my mind. One minute it’s all tea bags and coffee grounds and onion peels, the next week BAM: loam crawling with earthworms. I don’t have to do a damn thing except keep it fed and watered, and it turns […]

Leaves: a thing to be desired

Leaves are totally hot right now ’round here. And my backyard is full of fruit trees!  Ah, the glory. Meanwhile, a curly, octopus-armed green thing is loving itself around the railing on the back porch: Since there’s no grapes yet, a grapevine can only mean one thing. It’s dolmades season. Want to know how to […]

Triumph?

I’ve been trusting the magical culinary dwarves in my kitchen a lot lately. And, frankly, I think that’s why I’ve had a string of duds. While they were out gathering dibbleberries or whatever the hell they eat (frankly, it smells disgusting), I had a sneaky peep in their quarters under the sink, and, well: all […]

Things making me happy right now

What? Doesn’t this fill your heart with joy and your mouth with eagerness? Really? Sheesh. Sweet bitty-lucking fries, these photos are driving me crazy with desire — and the real thing is only about two metres away from me.  I spent an hour or so after lunch yesterday with M and my Mumini following the […]
