my week in review

I got sick! stuck with a bad throat and a stuffy nose. Fightin off the last of it now.

the remedy? Sopa de lima! (made with lemons)

salt and pepper
lemon or lime juice until you just taste it

saute these until the onions are translucent and it smells good

add: 1 can diced unsalted tomatoes
chicken (I used drumsticks)
water to cover (plus some)

boil for hours, until the chicken is stringy and soft. top with fresh
cilantro. good with tortilla chips. (i subbed a mediocre loaf of gluten
free bread. still working on the recipe)

Then Christmas came along, so I made this cyclist for Jesse:

obligatory action pose:

And finally, we brought sugar cookies down to Millbrae last night.
Neon food dye is awesome.
