The sound of steelbelts on the blacktop

This has been a weekend o' good food.

Dim sum with Jasmine, Chris and Catie at Jeem Asian Restaurant. Their soft seafood egg rolls had an awesome flavor.

Dinner with Leslie at I Love Sushi - try their special 'tropical roll' with avocado, strawberry, mango and salmon, with blueberry soy and wasabi mayo. Yum!

Blueberry cake donut from Top Pot this morning on the way to the Downtown dog park. Spike and Peanut ate most of the plain old-fashioned as it was too dry for my taste.

The first delivery from Pioneer Organics worked out well. Every two weeks, on Friday, they bring me a cardboard box filled with local, organic produce. Last time I got cherries, apricots, blueberries, bananas, nectarines, corn, spinach, cucumber, and potatoes. I've eaten about half of it already, which means that the biweekly delivery is perfect for me. I know it sounds very snooty and yuppie, but after months (years, even) of promising myself I'd go to the Redmond saturday farmer's market and not actually getting there, at least this gets me to try some things I might not have if left to my own devices. Plus it's all fresh and it's amazing how good some of the stuff tastes compared to what you buy at the grocery store.

I'm off to enjoy this lovely day. TJ is off at the shooting range with our friends Dave and Bill. I want to try it (at least once) but I figured he could report back first and tell me what it was like. I'm very afraid of guns but it would be nice to be able to handle one in a controlled environment. Which reminds me of the movie Saved!- hilarious, and I totally recommend it.

Hope you're all having sunny days out there - it's lovely in Seattle today!


  1. wow! Good for you on supporting local farmers and buying organic!

  2. Yeah, now that I can afford it, I buy organic when I can and try to support the "little guy". However, I just can't break my Starbucks chai habit... :) I had some local coffee shop's version today and it was icky.


I love comments, so please leave me your thoughts. Thanks in advance!
