Plum Kuchen

On Sunday night, I made a plum cake with the little plums I got at the Farmers Market. I took it to work on my bike on Monday, for an all day meeting. There was some left and I had another slice for breakfast at work on Tuesday. I think it only has about 250 […]

Another Sunday’s cooking

I’m having a bit of trouble getting portfolio slideshow to display my picture captions – but I bet I can get it worked out, eventually. I made leek & ham tart for breakfast and roasted fingerling potatoes. With bacon on the side, so a heavy on the smoked pork meal, but so tasty. Hammie decided […]

WI Film fest ’15, Sunday – Tues.

On the Sunday of the film fest, we went to three movies. We started with a double feature: The last seder, by Marc Kornblatt, and Off the Menu: Asian American, by Grace Lee. Both were good – Lee’s was a little more wide-ranging. She went to Texas, where she visited the sushi king of Texas, […]

It was efficiency apartments, with […]

Yesterday was kind of a long day – in to work in time for a 9:00 a.m. meeting with a visiting library school professor, who has written an ebook text book that I think my school will adopt. Then a brown bag talk (recording, 1:09) with another visiting library school professor, this one a good […]

Snowed in – or something

I tried a slightly different kind of event this afternoon at School Woods – sort of a tea, an afternoon buffet of desserts and snacks.  I thought the food was really nice. Only a small group of diners showed up to enjoy it, though – must be the weather, or who knows what. It’s snowing […]
