1. summer dinners

    We moved this past weekend to the apartment below our old one, gaining a deck, grill and much larger kitchen. I’m currently covered in mosquito bites, but this Tuesday night dinner was pretty worth it. 

    The veggies came from my CSA and a trip to the farmer’s market on Sunday, the salmon came from the fish market across the street. It really doesn’t get better than that, as far as I’m concerned.

    When we go to Charleston, I do not hold back when meals come around. Sometimes I invent meals to squeeze in more restaurants – linner? Restaurant options are carefully debated, yelp-ed, and menus are analyzed. It can get ugly. Any one who has been to a few restaurants in Charleston understands this unprecedented balancing act of selecting a restaurant for brunch, lunch, dinner, drinks, etc. One lazy decision or snap judgment and you could miss out on the best meal of your life. 

    There’s a possibility I’m overhyping this.

  6. / eating like a farmer

    I’ve been living off of local fresh produce when my CSA delivery and a trip to my soon-to-be-brother-in-law’s (is there a less awkward way to say that? no? OK.) farm collided. We were sent home from Charleston with a cooler filled with ripe tomatoes, collard greens, okra, garlic, potatoes, peppers and more. The next day, my CSA contributed corn on the cob, peaches, cauliflower, (more) potatoes, cucumbers and green tomatoes. As a result, I have been eating my way through the mound of produce that currently occupies my kitchen counter.

  8. / food prep 2

    In June I’m starting a 30 day challenge. Not full blown paleo – I’m not big on the meat (and am not 100% convinced one should consume bacon and beef instead of yogurt and edamame). Instead, I’m planning 30 days of no dairy, no grains, no sugar, no alcohol, no starchy vegetables. Lots of plants, basically.

    I decided to test it out this week, and prepped the following in anticipation.

  9. Currently cannot stop purchasing high-waisted mom jeans. My hands automatically reach for my MiH Halsy jeans the second I get off of work on Friday, and they stay on my body until Sunday evening. Not that you can’t wear them to work (I have), but they’re the most perfect weekend jeans I just can’t stand it. 

    My gateway pair of mom jeans triggered an eBay search – where I picked up the brand’s discontinued Jane jeans because they were over 50% off and I have a problem.

    Now, I’ve had these in my cart and am about to pull the trigger, but do I need another pair of mom jeans?

    I think I do. 

    That’s all I got.

    When there’s nothing to do on a Sunday, I like to take it as an opportunity to marathon-prep my food for the week. Plus, I’m trying to get back on track after all the traveling / day drinking / laziness, so I blew my way through what was left in my CSA (plus some items in my pantry).

  12. / Plant-Based Life

    My junior year of college, I had a food revelation triggered by a 25 pound weight gain due to a combination of factors not uncommon to a 20-year-old college girl working at a restaurant and living on a small budget. I wasn’t happy with how I felt, how I looked, and decided to changed the way I ate.

    So I really only took photos in two places, Chop Suey Books and Can Can Brasserie, but everything was so damn cute. Richmond, you’re cool, I’m gonna visit you more.
