Nonsense

Right this very second I am so lazy. I’m unrecognizably lazy. I like it.

Aside from  some cakes and croissants here and there, over the past two weeks I have mastered the art of chillin.I’ve been spending far too much money on food and drinks, caught up with lots of my girlfriends, had a really fun food photo shoot with 2 of my favorite ladies, all the while eating my weight in all things butter and lard.

So I guess what I’m saying really, is that I don’t really have anything useful for you today. No advice, no recipes….just a bunch of rambling, which, it turns out, I’m like, really good at.

Here are some things I’ve been meaning to tell you about:

1)Vegalene.  I feel bad about this one. I should have told you about it a loooong time ago, but I just kept forgetting. Anyhow this stuff rocks. It’s the best non stick spray I’ve ever used, and it comes in this nifty orange-ish can with a retro design. It has yet to fail me, as it is made up of three oils and contains NO water. Not all nonstick sprays are created equally, and most of them do contain water, which sometimes results in a non -working non-stick spray. Vegalene isn’t widely available; this I know. You can find it here,or buy it at Smart and Final.

2) The combination of Spansh Chorizo and Sancerre.  More specifically,  Fra Mani chorizo and Domaine Girault Sancerre.  This particular combination (with the addition of a little bread and arugula, for good measure)  may or may not have been my dinner everyday for a week at some point this winter. Don’t knock it til you try it.

3) All things Shel Silverstein. His books have been a constant in my life from a very young age, and lately I’ve come to appreciate his writing on a different level, and with a new understanding.  This poem, in particular, is my favorite:

  Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be. ~SS

Did you know that Shel Silverstein wrote Johnny Cash’s song “A Boy Named Sue”? Now you know.

4) This song by Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros. It’s sounds so retro and modern all at the same time without trying too hard. The rest of the album is good too, but I love the woman’s voice, and she sings more on this song than others.

5) I’ve been eating a lot of Niman Ranch Bacon.  And by a lot I mean an absurd amount really, but I’ve been eating it in salad, so that kind of cancels out anything that one might consider to be bad about bacon, right? The bacon is delicious though, perfectly salty, thickly sliced and fantastically pork-y. Get some at Trader Joe’s, then mix it with some greens to make yourself feel better about eating half of the package in one sitting. That’s what I do anyway.

Alright. I’ve got to get up now. My butt is asleep.

    I LOVE Shel Silverstein – and I love that quote. I kept my childhood copies of Where the Sidewalk Ends and Falling Up. I also picked up “A Giraffe and a Half” at the bookstore the other day and was reminded how amazing his little kid books are. Definitely on the gifting list.
