happy (grey, wet and cold) tuesday!

i have been reading a lot on the interweb that most of you are experiencing spring, even summer like weather over the past few weeks and well, to be honest, im totally jealous. here in portland we are still wearing our wellies, scarves, long pants and rain jackets. when we arrived in portland for good, last june (18th to be specific) we had a week of this grey cr*p and then bright warm skies! ALL day EVERY day till about late september. and by being up so far north on the planet, the daylight sticks around until close to 10:30! it is glorious! just thinking about it make me giddy!


so, until the sun comes out to stay, i will continue to occupy myself with indoor activities. most of which consists of blog reading, cooking, playing with figgy and dreaming of remote beaches and tropical islands.

i came across this new publication that i am DYING to subscribe to McSweeney's: Lucky Peach

What’s inside Issue One (taken from the website):

• Peter Meehan and David Chang report on their travels in Japan, Tennessee, and Spain
• Anthony Bourdain’s take on the classic Brittany Murphy film, Ramen Girl
• An instant-ramen taste test with Ruth Reichl
• John T. Edge introduces the New Orleans specialty, ya ka mein
• Debunking the Myth of Authenticity with Todd Kliman
• Explanations of MSG headaches and alkaline noodles from Harold McGee
• Art from Tony Millionaire, Matt Volz, Richard Saja, Scott Teplin and others
• Recipes from Chang, Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi, and Wylie Dufresne

is anyone else as excited for this as i am? have you subscribed yet?

till next time,

  1. Except for the fact that David Chang supposedly hates the Bay Area and the west coast..the magazine looks really cool!
