What I'm reading:
Laurie Notaro's latest, The Potty Mouth at the Table.
What I'm watching:
We just saw World War Z, and I was pleasantly surprised! A smart take on the zombie genre.
What I'm listening to:
Anything and everything eighties on Spotify.
What I'm eating:
Yesterday I made a pan of homemade granola bars: Melt 1/2 cup agave syrup that the elderly bagger made fun of me for buying, 1/4 cup brown rice syrup, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 cup coconut oil in a small saucepan on the stove. Pour it over the following, which you've dumped in a large bowl: 2 cups oatmeal, 1 cup Rice Crispies, 1/3 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 cup coconut shreds, 1/3 cup dried cranberries, 1/3 cup pepitas, 1/4 cup ground flaxseed, 1/4 cup hulled hemp seed, and 1/4 cup chia seeds. Mix well. (It was kind of a hodgepodge of everything I had in the cupboard.) Press into a 9x12 greased Pyrex pan, bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, and cut into bars when cool. Try not to inhale them all in one sitting.
Adorable things my two-year-old niece said recently:
"Come on guys, it's time o'clock!"
And, about Daisy: "Him so cute!"
The 2013 season of Monarch ranching is also underway:
We're also on Week Two of our CSA pick-ups--strawberries, kohlrabi, sugar snap peas, lettuce, asparagus, potatoes ... and I've got to cut this blog short because J wants to drag me down to South Park to a car show. Which, as you all know, I'm hugely into.
