grains glorious grains


ok ok i know i've not been a good blogger as of late, but who ever said i was a good blogger? its been hectic hectic finals time around here. i arose at 6 am this saturday morning and was at school by 7 am to give my class their final. poor dears. that is just too early. evil byu for scheduling it. boo. then i spent the rest of the day grading all said finals, plus lots of papers. my brain and eyeballs are fried. on tuesday i leave for dc/nyc for a little r&r. but in the meantime EVERYONE should buy THIS book. seriously. i found it when i was looking online for quinoa recipes. . . read some reviews and immediately ordered it. since it came i read it all the time (its on my bedside table) have cooked numerous delectable dishes (quinoa and chinese vegetable stir fry, breakfast quinoa cooked in orange juice, quinoa & corn muffins, coconut corn curried soup, buckwheat polenta with green olives and tomatoe, buckwheat and millet waffles. . . endless deliciousness). its like the word of wisdom cookbook to the max. all different kinds of whole grains, the history of them, storing/cooking/flour info on each and amazing, simple, delicious and so good for you recipes. sigh. trust me there will be more posts about this, but for now i've got to hit the hay! xoxo oh ps this pic is from critical mass here in provo a few weeks ago! we commandeered the streets of provo on friday afternoon during rush our! it was so awesome! thanks to all who showed up, and for those who want to join we'll have one the first friday of every month.

Zi, just checking to see if this comment stuff really works. Are you back from the East by now? I just bought A Painter's Kitchen-Revised Edition: Recipes from the Kitchen of Georgia O'Keeffe. Weirdly old school "health food". This grains book looks rad, especially while everyone is going to start freaking out about the rice crisis.

I love that there is critical mass Provo just like there is critical mass london. Friday's the special day, all around the world. It's kinda like Sunday School. You can go anywhere and the same lesson is being taught. you can go anywhere, and there is critical mass. Of course you are behind this.

Ahh. Guess what? I think I will see you in person before you read this comment. Maybe. :)
