What we’re cookin’

Homemade food we’ve made in the last four days:

  • Smoked pork soup
  • Garlic brown sugar glazed salmon
  • Smoked tri-tip steak (omg so good)
  • Cinnamon raisin swirl walnut sourdough
  • Regular sourdough
  • Ugandan eggs bread with tomato chutney
  • Turkey meatballs with homemade pasta
  • Black bean brownies
  • Dried apples and pears from our trees

Great start to the fall! Cooking is the best form of humblebrag.

Long live the weekend

Woke up at 5 am. Worked on my Day of REST presentation for a couple hours. Took a 40 minute run to Tualatin Park; feet were sore which means I probably need new shoes. Made cottage cheese pancakes for breakfast. Went to Jordan and Haley’s for Elsie’s first birthday. Came home, put Ava down for nap. Made a couple pull requests against WP-API. Finished installing the second raised bed in the backyard. Cut down some bamboo. Neighbor brought over a few pieces of absolutely amazing brisket. Made steak fajitas, corn tortillas from masa harina, chips from stale tortillas, and guacamole. Had in-laws over for dinner. Drank wine.

Long live the weekend.
