What I’ve been up to lately:
Eating (clockwise from upper left): Roasted acorn squash (homemade), Taiwanese cold sesame noodles (homemade), kuri manju (a sweetened bean paste and chestnut filled Japanese bun), and skanky takeout from Panda Express (Yes, I do eat Panda Express sometimes. I admit it!), lemongrass tofu (homemade).
I have a silly goal of trying every single chocolate that See’s Candy has to offer. I decided to start with the one that seemed the least appealing, the Rum Nougat.
After the first bite, I couldn’t finish it; my taste buds were overwhelmed with rum flavor. I’ve realized that I don’t really like the taste of rum, I guess. Oh well.
Been listening to the Bird and the Bee’s new album comprised completely of Hall and Oates covers. I’m really enjoying it, which is funny because I didn’t grow up listening to Hall and Oates as a kid. As I was listening, the entire time I was thinking, “Hey! I didn’t know this was by Hall and Oates!” My knowledge of late 70’s/80’s music is pretty much close to nil.
Anyway, here’s a song from the album if you’d like to check it out:
