busy weekend

on friday, we made ahi tuna steaks and steamed broccoli with rice. i used the same dressing recipe that we use for the arugula salad with roasted chicken and it was excellent.

we spent a while on saturday at mounds. i’m trying to find the right kind of dog food for jones because of his kidney numbers. low protein doesn’t exist apparently, because everything is “grain free” and “high protein” these days. i found some sweet potato and bison food that’s 20%. i read somewhere online that red meat is easier to digest than white for the older, kidney-issue dogs. anyhoo, it’s been a week since i got the email from the vet with this information, and i’ve emailed her twice but haven’t heard back.

then, we shopped, made breakfast, and i made another batch of fancy biscuits; charlie bears are too high in protein to give him anymore—and merle just sticks her nose up at them.

saturday night, we had bibimbap, which is a korean dish of fried rice and veggies. i had a jar of kimchi in the fridge for probably two years and finally opened it up for this. we used gwennie’s recipe and it was amazing. we talked about it all day on sunday.

on sunday, we made migas, which is spanish for crumbs. it’s a way to use up old corn tortillas that would normally just crumble when folded in half. it was pretty amazing.

rodney went to wilson’s to watch the badger basketball game and i tooled around the house. then picked a friend up to go to woodman’s (he’s without a car right now).

sunday night, we made portobello mushroom burgers. when i was still a veggie, these mushroom burgers permeated every menu in town. disgustingly doused in balsamic vinegar and cooked until squishy. this version was way better! lemon juice and olive oil with a little garlic, salt, pepper. and cooked until just underdone; because they had to be broiled for a minute to melt the cheese. scrumptious.

oh. and the kicker this weekend: matt moved his stuff out of the basement and we discovered black mold. which may explain my inability to breathe in the winter (well, that and the cat hair in the vents).
