a sunny day off:)

We forgot to eat the bananas that I bought last week and they got all black and mushy so today I used them and made banana bread with chocolate and hazelnuts.


I also made a soup and sandwich lunch. Yesterday I found a slow cooker at Walgreens for $10. I scooped it up and made some soup last night which was undrinkable. I tried to make a mushroom beef stew, but at the last second I decided to add some of this hot pepper I bought. MISTAKE. It was so spicy that everytime I had a sip, I would cough for about a minute. Anyhow, today's soup was definitely more successful.


I roasted two big tomatoes on an iron skillet in the oven for 20 minutes then mushed 'em up and put them in the slow cooker with some chicken broth. I then cooked up some butter, fresh basil, garlic and a little milk on the stove top and threw it in the slow cooker as well. It came out great.

And I made a baguette grilled cheese with marinated artichoke hearts to go with it.

I love sunny days off. They make me happy and productive:)

I'm preparing to make that no knead bread, so tomorrow morning I'll be baking it. Show you guys the pictures soon.

waiting for you 等着你回来

This video is strange and terrifying. I would have never interpreted the song this way.

For all you china people who can't access youtube: the video is a scary interpretation of the 白光 song. It's really not all that exciting, but I'm always looking for another excuse to listen to this song again.

Does anyone else obsessively listen to the one track? Why does listening to the same song over and over feel so great? Is it a building of the familiar that makes us so attached to a particular song? repetitive ingraining of familiarity...?
