The wearin' o' the green

I get ready for St. Patrick's Day
Seattle, Washington
Monday, March 16, 2015

I'm ready for the big day tomorrow and thought I would compare my preparations with those of my favorite Safeway. It was a pretty display, but I'm still not sure what the luck-o-the-Irish rainbow was doing over the meat locker. Corned beef, maybe? (But really, it looked mostly like some kind of sausage...)

Sushi evening

Seattle, Washington

Lucky us: we are hosting a Japanese student for two weeks, and this evening she taught us how to make sushi. They weren't all pretty, but they were ALL delicious. Arigato, E!

Seasons on the march

Seattle, Washington
Sunday, February 15, 2015

Popped over to Safeway this morning to do a bit of grocery shopping and found Easter well on its way--as the detritus of Valentine's Day was rudely yanked from the shelves. Ah, the ceaseless march of the shopping seasons!

Seattle, Washington
Saturday, February 14, 2015

THIS was the morning that A announced we should play with trains, after months of no trains. Out came the meters and meters of track and all the old friends -- including one just in time for Chinese New Year...

#36

Seattle, Washington
Friday, January 23, 2015

Friday night and the parents get dinner out! Where do they head? Vietnam House in the International District. Excellent food, quick service, and #36 (Grilled Lemongrass Chicken on cold noodles) is always good. As are the rest of the BĂșn dishes...
