the quotidian

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

Living on restaurant scraps: oh, how we suffer.

Creamifying the ricotta.

To go with the movie night (once again, I chose something too scary) popcorn.

Next time you make rice krispy treats, sub out a third of the cereal for potato chips
and let me know what you think.

And next time you make pasta with pesto,
stir a cup of fromage blanc (or ricotta) into the sauce.

Topped off.

Prepping the week’s veggies.

Find your bliss. If you’re lucky, you can eat it.

Washing milk buckets; scrubbing eggs.

Upon seeing my rickety operation, my husband reminded me of the press up in the attic.
Oh, riiiight.

Keto ice cream does not melt: after three hours in the compost (where it belongs).


Oooo, look who’s come to see me!

This same time, years previous: baa-baa fat sheep, stuffed poblanos, the solo, snake charmer, the quotidian (5.23.16), Shirley’s sugar cookies, more on trash, the reason why, through my daughter’s eyes.

    I’m never heard of fromage blanc and am intrigued by your idea of mixing it into pesto as a spaghetti sauce. . How easy is it to find in US supermarket cheese departments?

    I wanted to thank you for the Berry Crostata recipe! Absolutely delicious made with Costco’s frozen Three Berry Blend, not defrosting the berries first. I’m looking forward to making this pie with a variety of fruits! A real winner!
