Cookies with Taiyo

It’s funny what will make me really miss my son all of a sudden.  I got to do an actual FaceTime video chat with him, Yuki and my parents today.  They’re all in Idaho together for the holidays, and I will be too soon enough!  Well, Boise, the nearest big city to Caldwell, where myContinue reading “Cookies with Taiyo”

Easy hotel room salad

Here’s an easy meal I threw together in my hotel room while staying at the Double Tree in Memphis. There are no fridges in the rooms, and our busses (which have fridges that conveintly stay on) went away, because we won’t be using them again until after the new year. So it was time toContinue reading “Easy hotel room salad”

Missing Athens…

Sometimes you get a good vibe the moment you set foot in a place. Athens was one of those places. Everyone fell in love with Athens, GA from the moment we showed up. What a cool town.

It’s only occasionally thatContinue reading “Kale chips! Last night in Cinci…”

Home (hotel) cookin!

Since I’ve been here in Cincinnati, and after I found the Findlay market, I’ve been cooking fish in the apartment almost every night. The only drawback I suppose is that my apartment suite smells like fish! This is a dish that I was cooking a lot while I was here. As per my wife’s recommendation,Continue reading “Home (hotel) cookin!”

Today’s Lunch!

How about an avocado, basil pepper chicken sandwich on toasted Multi-grain bread with grape tomatoes, olive oil mayo, and pesto spread! Delicious! The chicken was precooked and flavored from Findlay Market. Got the hand made pesto spread there too! Findlay Market is a farmer’s market type place, close to downtown Cinci, that’s open 6 daysContinue reading “Today’s Lunch!”
