the quotidian (1.30.17)

Quotidian: daily, usual or customary; 
everyday; ordinary; commonplace

My new favorite salad base: power greens.

Now that’s a grilled cheese.
Piling up: the daily starter leftovers.

Another quadruple batch of this soup.

Just for kicks: hot pepper in the caramel.

I love breakfast.
Kitchen geometrics.

She passed!

Whupped: after a 12-hour EMT shift
(that included a grueling round of CPR)
sandwiched between two days of construction work,
and then the start of a cold.

Naughty girls, all three of them.

He wanted to be closer to us.

Attending a private show (!) of their new (!!) music: The Steel Wheels (!!!).

This same time, years previous: crispy pan pizzas, sour cream and berry baked oatmeal, about a picture, swimming in the sunshine, mornings, the quotidian (1.30.12), Gretchen’s green chili, shoofly cake, and Nana’s anise biscotti.

    I love these treasure hunt posts! I am a nurse, so yes, CPR is very hard work, and it often doesn't work, so when it does, it is a truly joyful moment! I hope he slept the sleep of the just! I am about to start my own culture of sourdough to make whole grain sourdough bread. Got any tips?

    An 18 minute round of CPR by an EMT saved my husband's life 5 weeks ago so many heartfelt thank yous for the CPR and I hope he is on the mend soon.

      I'm so glad your husband is okay. That must've been horrible. (My son got word yesterday that the patient he was working on survived!!!)

      So good to hear that there was a good outcome!

      My husband was in a coma for 10 days and they told me he would never wake up. After 3 days they began to tell me that I needed to take him off life support. I stood my ground and kept saying no. He woke up on day 10. What if I had listened to them? He is about back to his old self but still tired. I thank God everyday for giving the best husband in the world back to me. I never knew how many people he had influenced and been kind to until he was on his deathbed.

      Thin slivers of pickled red onion. Good on salads, pork tacos, in guacamole, etc. (They sell pickled ginger at all the international food stores in town, I think…)

      The power greens are from Costco: a blend of spinach, chard, and kale. Makes such a sturdy salad.

      And yes, I pickled the onions. One part white vinegar to one part water and then a bit of sugar and salt thrown in for good measure. Some of the kids are actually big fans!
