Let me share more than you want to know
I came home on Monday and it had turned to fall for real here. It was kind of weird being away for three weeks and BAM coming back. The trees are turning colors and it is getting cold. Dr. Food put all my fruit trees in the house because it is starting to frost at night. Anyhow, I am out of sorts. I tried to take pictures for a post tonight and lost all the pictures. Dr Food had my camera in his backpack at work and I tried to use my phone. So, since that didn't work and I haven't been too into cooking the last couple of nights I thought I would share with you who I am.
I am a huge knitter (I mean knitting all the time when I am not cooking) and I made a chicken leg hat for fun.
I owned a yarn shop named Yarn! (I thought the name was hysterical and it was really funny when kids would walk by and yell YARN!!!!). It was in California and it got Best of the Bay Area in San Francisco Magazine.
I was at a party with Timothy Leary a week before he died. He told me that after he died he would contact me on the internet (at the time I was a Webmaster for RAND). He never contacted me.
I am a aunt to a Lemur. His name is Larry and Dr Food wouldn't let me have him but my friend has him.
I collect boots.
I have tried to grow a redwood burl about 10 times and I always kill them. Yes, I know, you don't know what a redwood burl is. Don't ask.
I want a miniature cow but Dr. Food won't let me have one (do we see a theme here?)
Halloween is my favorite holiday but this year I am too tired to do anything.
I had a Saint Bernard named Lily in California. She died on her way out to New England. She was 9 years old.
I lived in a 150 year old Victorian House in Northern California before I moved to New England.
I kissed a camel.
Pasta recipe that I made for dinner:
Pasta and Shrimp
Box of Wheat Pasta
1 can Anchovies
3Tbl Olive Oil
Red Pepper Flakes (to taste)
2 Tbl Minced Garlic
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Make pasta according to directions. Saute garlic and anchovies until anchovies dissolve. Throw in shrimp and saute until shrimp is cooked (about 7 minutes). Drain pasta and add to the shrimp mixture. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese.
I swear I will do better this weekend. We are going to go pick up our lamb (yes, Dr food will let me have a whole lamb if it means we are going to eat it. He was raised on farms.)
