05.28.16 roses


Roses at my Brooklyn house.

I’ve never previously been able to keep any sort of plant alive. This garden thrives regardless of any effort on my part.

05.20.16 garden


The garden is officially free of poison ivy!

Next week: building boxes and moving plants around. Which is probably called landscaping.

It’s like I’m a real grownup or something.

05.08.16 pickles


I don’t find cooking difficult. I just find it tedious.

That however is no excuse for, well, anything.

My irritable but diligent attempts to make coeliac safe pickles, kimchi, and ramen were definitely successful.

05.06.16 bread


My first attempt at baking gluten free bread.

Easier than expected– baking is more like a fun science experiment than a boring household chore. Also: gluten free bread! And it tastes… like bread! I haven’t had bread in months!

Tashi & his Turkish coffee grinder.

 


05.05.16 cooking


While the coeliac diagnosis is not surprising, it is wildly annoying.

I can’t think of anything I hate more than cooking. Yet here I am, learning how to cook, not just in general terms but from first principles.

Heavy sigh.
