Vegetable Panino

Panino (panini is the plural form) with spinach, caramelized onion, tomato, avocado, jack cheese, and creole mayonnaise. This is the first time I’ve made one, and it came out pretty well. I used some leftover focaccia that came with a salad from the pizzeria down the street, and used a George Foreman grill as a sandwich press.

Yaki Udon

Yaki Udon (Japanese stir-fried noodles) with vegetable and egg, topped with “chicken-less nuggets” (not as lame as they sound, I assure you) and sri racha sauce.

Mustard Pizza

I ate this for breakfast today. Pizza with olive oil, spicy mustard, roma tomatoes, bell peppers, mushrooms and mozzarella. It was awesome, but next time I think I’ll try dijon, maybe with a different type of cheese, or a blend of cheeses. For lunch, I’m going to make french toast!

Life at 1146 and the End of Summer

Summer has slipped away once again. I was pretty busy not really doing anything and hardly noticed it passing. I was so busy, in fact, that I didn’t even have the time to write in this blog, or go to Maine or Arizona, or read all the books I wanted to, or go to tai chi classes or music lessons. Mostly I was working (as a cook in a poolside snackbar at the Trenton Country Club – a job which ended on labor day). The hours were pretty long, so I usually just slept and hung out whenever I wasn’t at work. Though this sounds like a failed summer, it wasn’t really so bad. In fact, I’d say it was, overall, a good one. Life at the house has been good (except for some recent drama), and I feel that it is going to keep getting better.

Here are some photos that other people took on my camera of things that happened over the summer: (more…)


On June 1, I am going to be moving into a new house with some of my best friends, and I plan on planting a serious garden to supply some of our food. To prepare, I bought the following seeds from Whole Foods: Sweet Corn, Roma Tomatoes, Sweet Peppers, Onions, Kale, Snow Peas, Squash, Zucchini, a blend of salad greens, Cilantro, and Fenugreek. I’m going to be starting some of them this week, if all goes well, and I can’t wait to get everything in the ground and see what happens.
