Food Notes for December 27, 2010

I hope everyone had a good Christmas! We’ve been putting our feet up over here…we haven’t had this relaxing of a holiday in some time. Much of that relaxing has been in the form of watching Mad Men from the beginning – it really is dangerous having access to an unlimited trial of Netflix, with the first three seasons of the show available. Though there’s not too much happening in the blogosphere, here are a few notes anyway:


Viphalay’s pad thai

  • I love freshly baked bread, and Mack was sweet enough to feed my habit with a loaf this week.


Mack’s bread!

  • A few weeks ago, we agreed to sign up to try out an indoor composting system called Bokashi, which instead of using worms, utilizes microorganisms to break down organic material by fermentation. It’s been about two weeks, and still, there is little to no odour! We’ll be writing more about it in the new year.

  • We had our second Christmas dinner over at Mack’s grandparents’ house on Saturday. Besides being treated to a delicious meal, I had my annual visit with Peanut.


Isn’t she adorable?

Enjoy your week!

  1. Looking forward to hearing how the composting system works out. We’ve been looking for something to use and this sounds like a great option. Keep enjoying Mad Men! I’ve been putting my feet up to the first four seasons of 30 Rock 🙂

  2. Marianne – it’s been pretty good so far with the composting system (it’s our first try with any sort of system). We’ll be writing more once we’ve done a few cycles of compost.

    Valerie – thanks! I can never get enough of Peanut, even though long-haired dogs are the worst for my allergies, heh.
