Big eyes, big belly

So, this is how much I got done by last night around 5:30pm. Not as much as I would have liked, but I was too busy eating, procrastinating w/classmates, eating, procrastinating w/classmates' siblings, eating, and eating.

I managed to fall asleep last night at 8:30pm, wake up to noisy neighbors, fall back asleep quickly - unheard of! - have bad dreams about having unanesthetized surgery while leaning over a table in some weird conference/office/random building where the "surgeon" cut open part of my back and then sewed it shut again, and still wake up at 8:30am. Feeling drugged from the noodles and dumplings, I decided that staying in last night and cooking Korean food was just as bad as if I indulged my desire to have pizza or Persian food.

I managed to walk to and from Whole Foods (and actually not buy a single sweet item!), and cook like a fiend. I did a very satisfying stir-fry and then had to get myself ready for the big dish: veggie maki. I made 19 rolls (what you see are 17, b/c I ate two along the way). Black beans are cooling on the stove; I think I'll do a salad w/dandelion greens. Now I am very tired, scared about varicose veins, and ready to indulge in a nap.

Black bean update:

I made the salad, with chopped dandelion greens, green olives, sugar snap peas, and strawberries. Weird, I know. Plus I made a yogurt/peanut butter/parilla seed mix to dress it. That makes a lot less sense, so I have it on the side in case I don't like it tomorrow.

Just so everyone knows, I acknowledge that I am obsessed w/food and eating, so you can cancel the intervention.

Woah, weird dreams! Where do they come from?

I love reading your food descriptions! They just make me wish we were roommates so I could sneak eat your leftovers.

I know I say this EVERY TIME but your bricks are so beautiful. I think it's the translucence, plus the way the are grouped in gradated colors.

Oh, Aimee.

I'm obsessed with food and eating, too! I'm so happy to read your food descriptions--keep them coming.

Wow, your bricks are looking great! Even the maki is mouth-wateringly beautiful. I'm sure it tasted as good as it looked.
