Lazy Sunday

Woke up early because of Daylight Savings Time. Poor Logan has been sick, which is awesome timing since the project he’s working on starts filming tomorrow. He gets to start at 4:30 in the morning! WHEE! We went to Hot Breads, a favorite Indian joint, for dosas and iddli. So you get another picture of…

Lunching with Nana

Spent today wandering Old Town Alexandria with Nana! Stopped in for a lunch at La Madeline, where I weaseled a smile out of her. (It wasn’t difficult.)

BLAMMO! Beans!

I’m a super-impatient cook, when I cook at all. I quickly get discouraged with chopping and simmering and adjusting flavors. And forget baking! So this is perfect for my slapdash style of cooking.
