Yummy Fixins

Paleo, no gluten, no sugar, no nightshades. Oh, and I make music.

Felt like making my chocolate cumin carnitas. Served them with watercress, avocado, and buttered butternut squash.


I dare you to not get chills when Julia Holter really brings it in this Dionne Warwick cover.  This song is devastatingly good, and wonderful to cry to.

Stage 2 dinner prep.


Tonight’s side dish.

Tonight’s side dish.


Ate at my favorite Japanese restaurant in NYC last night - EN Japanese Brasserie. The pic of the sake bottle was really necessary since I know nothing about sake and cannot pick a good one. One of my dining companions picked this unfiltered brand, and it was AMAZING. It looked almost like milk in the glass. I think it’s funny how on the back label, the suggested food pairing is tacos and salsa.

I didn’t get a photo of my salmon sashimi appetizer because I wolfed it down like the animal I am.

Other dishes were oysters (I didn’t eat those), beef short rib slices we cooked at the table over a hot stone, miso black cod (pretty much my favorite dish, any time, anywhere), and pork belly.

Here is my post from the last time I went there (I captured the sashimi appetizer that time!).


Sippin on gin-ger juice. Laid back.

This was an amazing summer dinner. Giant salad of Mountain Sweet Berry Farm arugula and strawberries, with chopped up Danby aged goat cheese from Consider Bardwell farm. Spaghetti squash primavera with pesto (veggies from Gorzynski and Norwich Meadows farms, and mushrooms from Bulich).  I love this season of food, and I love my wonderful farmers at Union Square!

Pretty pix from Le Maison du Macaron (23rd between 6th and 7th, NYC).

As part of his proactive dessert choice strategy, the kid wanted to stop in and pick one up to eat after dinner tonight. He got a mango one (the red/orange with yellowish middles, above) to change it up from his “normal” salted caramel. I put normal in quotes because he only eats about two a year.

Anyway, I am posting this (because the pix are pretty, and…) just to note the flavors listed in the Malabar one. I’m going to try to make some sort of grain-free, healthy treat with those flavors. (I don’t know when.).

Farmer cheese with some fresh, red currants from the farmers market. BTW, if you’re eating SCD, this is the only legal brand of farmer cheese.


Aw, hey, what up perfect little grain-free breakfast wrap!

The kid feels “antsy” and a little tired and headachy, so I went with my good for anything drink of fresh mint and ginger tea. Good thing both are locally in season right now!

Lucky

My work got so very interesting this week, that it was genuinely a struggle to choose between making music and working on my job during my “off-time.”  I did a little bit of both.  I feel really, really lucky to have chosen the right business to start, and I feel unbelievably blessed to have such amazing clients.  I’m not making big money right now, but I have work, and most of all, I have passion for it.  YAY.  

(For those keeping track at home - the new goal for the EP release is end of September, but — shhhhhh! — I have been sending out rough mixes to highly interested parties…. Ahem…)
