Black Friday

I don't think I've ever worked on a black Friday. It'll probably be slow today, but NPR is keeping me company and I guess we're going to serve hot cider. Ummm...cute things we have in the store:

buy here:

*edit! Hear about this? Wal-Mart Employee Trampled to Death by Customers. Oh America.

Might start school in January. Well, not might, but most likely will.

Getting cold

(gloves from Kate Spade)
It's funny because people keep telling me the winter in SF isn't that cold. I mean, it's colder in comparison to Southern California, but for some reason it doesn't feel as cold as it was in the summer. It's supposed to rain today. We'll see. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving--time flies!

I made these with some japanese cookie cutters I got in Taiwan. The koalas are especially tasty.

Lazy. Me and Hanami feel like sloths.

I set my homepage to NPR, thinking it would help me read about any important issues or current events BEFORE I begin wasting my time and brain space on other websites. Nevertheless I always end up reading the fun stuff anyway. Here are some cool articles I read today and wanted to share:

10 best cookbooks of 2008. Good gift ideas!

For those of you disgruntled workers on monday morning.
A good playlist to start off the day? Hah.

CSA Time again

I joined a CSA up here! If you're in the Bay Area, this is the one I joined. They have a stand in the Ferry Building for more info if you're interested. It's nice because they deliver right to your door too.
This was my first week of receiving produce. Yams, fennel, leeks, chard, broccoli, apples, satsumas, and fresh cranberries. Looking up recipe ideas right now. I tried making braised kale, but it ended up being kind of a bust. Oh well!
Today I tried using the fresh cranberries to make this recipe from Lottie+Doof. Except I'm not the best at following directions or using the right size pans and this and that. So it wasn't really an upside-down cake, but it's a cake nonetheless.
I'm also roasting some cut up yams, butternut squash, and sunchokes, just to take full advantage of the oven. It's been cold lately, so it feels good to have the oven on and the smell of caramelized vegetables is nice too.

the end!


It's almost Thanksgiving and I haven't updated at all. Isn't this what happens to a lot of blogs? I just don't have the dedication to update daily; or maybe my life is just uneventful as of lately. Actually, I take that back. I was out of the country for a few weeks for my cousin's wedding in Taiwan. It was a nice vacation; I've had a lot of nice vacations lately. Time to get serious. :/
