jitterbug: (food - spices)

          may 8th, 2009. 94/365.

today i planted tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, and a windowbox full of herbs (basil, rosemary, thyme, and mint).

green beans. i like them well enough, but they are not a vegetable i get excited about cooking. i picked up a pound of green beans thinking i'll toss them in the oven with some olive oil and garlic, as i usually do, for a quick and nondescript side dish. as i was cooking dinner a whimsical change of plan was made and the results were well worth it. this green bean/cherry tomato sauté is one of the best dishes i've ever cooked.

the sun sets on old devil moon

no more tofu scramble to ease a sunday hangover. no more late scorching summer nights spent under christmas lights with no air-conditioning, a beer, and the best key-lime pie in town. no more cajun nachos. another place with many happy memories -- gone.

now i'm awaiting the day black betty closes.

*nye was lame. i picked up elly's stomach virus and spent most of the evening/night in the bathroom.

*on friday ian and i went to gobo for dinner. i had an appetizer of spring rolls with a spicy honey dip, and a small plate of vietnamese stir-fry [hot spiced tofu, red onion, bell pepper]. ian had new england rolls and a large plate of soy cutlets in black pepper sauce. everything was cooked perfectly; the flavors deep, clean, and fresh. i think i found my new favorite vegetarian/vegan restaurant.

*grades for the fall semester still aren't up, i know i got an A- in one class. waiting for two more grades.

*i need 3 graduate level english courses for my degree. csi is offering only 6 graduate level english courses in the spring -- two workshops (writing/writing about lit), an independent study course, multicultural lit, 19th century english lit, and a classics course. i registered for the multicultural lit class. and the classics which is taught by a professor whom i've had for 2 classes before. he's a quirky old man; knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter. unfortunately, i find that he's incapable of engaging his students in a classroom setting. i'd love to drink a beer with him and talk shakespeare. i don't want to see him every tuesday night for 3.5 hours for 14 weeks.

*my dreamscapes should come with a movie camera. i dream kadain style, nightly.

*itching to go dancing.

*kristina and i are taking agnes to atlantic city for her birthday. it promises to be a corny good time of badly dressed senior citizens, the rainforest cafe, dingy strip-clubs, and hangovers. upon our return, i promise to reconsider my idea of a good time.
