Coffee Musings - 032008

I didn't have coffee in the morning yesterday, and I think my co-workers really felt it. I felt good yesterday morning so I skipped the coffee. I drank green tea for a while. However, I don't think I felt good enough. Man, I was grumpy, and contrary. Sure, I wasn't clenching my jaw on the metro like usual, but I just didn't have that spark. I needed it yesterday because it was so grey. Today! I have my coffee! I'm also reading a new book.

Coffee Musings - 031408

I've been doing a lot of baking. I baked potato bread a couple days ago. I should definitely go the dinner roll route as opposed to the loaf route. Also, I made this wonderful vegetarian Boston Black Bean soup. However, what I've been devoting a lot of kitchen time to is my new blog BRob Bobblehead Biscotti.

If all goes well I'll be cooking a recipe from each one of these books for my lunch tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Coffee Musings - 031008

I've been baking a lot! I posted about it on my BRob Bobblehead Biscotti blog. This is a pretty cool project as it gives me something to do on the weekends. Sometimes I need to find something to do or I just stare at the walls or sleep in. Sleeping in isn't so bad, but it's always good to have a plan anyway.

I'm looking foward to finishing this book as I think it's the new Silent Spring even more so than Slaughterhouse. What's interesting is that it downplays environmental factors in cancer, and Silent Spring was all about environmental factors in cancer. Actually, in the China Study it looks like environmental factors create the cancer, but it's food that gives it expression.

Coffee Musings - 030508

I baked chocolate walnut biscotti last night. The scene here is so cute I was inspired to draft a poem doubly inspired by a Jacob Lawrence painting.

Coffee Musings - 030408

Here is a sample of books that I bought that I haven't read. I was trying to find a book I had on the Library of Congress to photograph with my mug, but I remembered I gave it to the library. I hardly looked at it, so it was a waste of space. I probably gave it away over a year ago, and just missed it today.
I've been in the kitchen all day! First cooking garbanzo beans for hummus, lunch, dinner, baking biscotti. It's like I live there. We'll it's good to live in a place with food, and personality, eh? It has personality because I have many pictures of my nieces and nephew on my refrigerator :)

Coffee Musings - 030308

Oh, look! More library books I haven't used. I really have to put the pedal to the metal and try these books out . . . or just borrow them at a different date. The Silver Spring library was so efficient. I didn't realize I would have all of these vegetarian books at once. Better a goldmine than a dried up stream, though, eh?

I baked almond biscotti this morning. Someone tried to force a drop cookie into a biscotti recipe. Hey, creativity is appreciated, no problem. It just doesn't work when forcing a drop cookie into a biscotti recipe, though.
