Richmond Photos

Yesterday I went walking around Richmond. It was so nice to get (almost) out of the city and see some greenery. Here are some of the better photographs I took. I was going crazy with the camera on my phone, zapping and clicking like mad.

Q: Why does everybody like the mushroom?
A: Because he's a FUN GUY!

Chips and Satay Beans

I had no idea what to make for dinner tonight, so I went with number one fallback plan chips, and green beans. I did the green beans is a sauce made of soy sauce, peanut butter, garlic, and a little orange juice. It thickened up beautifully, and this meal really hit the spot. Thumbs up, and it was done in half an hour from scratch.

Of late I have become pretty...I don't know, maybe apathetic or something like it. I feel pretty disconnected, maybe less passionate, and I want to remedy that. I am at my happiest, I think, when I feel active, and involved, and like I'm part of a bigger cause. So I'm going to make some resolutions to right some of the things I'm doing wrong.

1. I am going to give up drinking pop for (at least) one week, starting today.
2. I am going to cook something fresh and delicious every day for (at least) one week, starting today.
3. I am going to do something creative every day for (at least) one week, starting today.
4. I am going to read more on the issues I am interested in.
5. I am going to post here twice a week for (at least) one month, starting today.

Maybe I've just gotten lazy of late. Hopefully this will give me a kick up the bum, and get me going.

In food related news, I had the BEST salad for lunch. I had lettuce and grated carrot, with fried red onions, pumpkin seeds and apple slices, all with balsamic vinegar, hummous and pitta bread. It was delish!
