The farmshare produced beets!  I don't know if it was the generous quantity of brown sugar or the pre-processed ginger goo, but today's was the best batch of chocolate beet muffins I've ever produced:

The price of white peaches has fallen below $2/pound at my grocery store, so I'm buying 5 at a time and making small batches of jam in the breadbot.  (Three for jam, two for eating.)

Conflate

Is this a good word to use when whining about how people think "base times height" makes as much sense as "length times width"?

Cafe

With all due respect to its romantic origin, it's an English word now and should learn to follow the rules.

(Am I allowed to use "romantic" like that?)

The farmshare went belly-up.  I'm open to suggestions of affordable ways of adding veggies to my diet.  (But at least I'm on top of adding fruit!)

A pound of spinach fills my backpack and makes a little over a pint of puree when cooked.  I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but I am.

And on the not-even-trying-to-be-healthy side of the diet, we have:  https://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2013/03/23/nutella-swirl-pound-cake/

badass

For some reason, I completely blanked on this word yesterday evening.  It amuses me that "Romantic fantasy:  badass" is now, in my mind at least, a distinct genre.

As it turns out, I prefer tomato sauce.  What a delicious mistake!

A woman with the lung capacity to converse throughout a three hour rock concert deserves a better vocabulary.

Traduce
