the quotidian (11.9.20)

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

Sweet ‘taties and beans.


They don’t like mushrooms; I made it anyway: with white wine, bacon, and leeks.

Breakfast for one.

You know you work in a bakery when you discover you’ve been carying around a disk of pie pastry in your purse for the last two days.

Community organizing with a side of pie.

Obsessively checking the results.

Laundry-folding party.

For the steers: farm compost.

Happily hurling the eggplants.

Sweetening up the beef.

She can hardly contain herself.

Our valley, our home.

This same time, years previous: what we ate, of mice and men and other matters, unleashing the curls, the quotidian (11.7.16), the quotidian (11.9.15), for the time change, maple roasted squash, pumpkin cranberry cream cheese muffins.

    My husband said he'll make me the sweet potatoes and beans if I provide a recipe (our tiny kitchen is strictly his domain to maintain household peace). I'm thinking — roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, mozzarella, avocado, cilantro, pickled jalapeƱos, sour cream, black pepper? Anything I'm missing/misidentified or any special prep instructions?

      Yes! Salsa is a nice addition, too.

      The potatoes in the above photo were roasted in their skins and then they hung out in the fridge for a couple days before we peeled them, cut them into thick slices, and fried them in a skillet with lots of bacon grease and butter until they were blackened in places and caramelized all over. This step isn't necessary but it sure is delicious!!
