| Food + dream log w/ Sumo duck (played by Peter Dinklage) vs. orthodox kale quiche (Thom Yorke)
13 April 2020> To continue our play by play COVID cuisine food diary, this eve we had: shrimp + asparagus stir-fry w/ tamarind + TJ's thai spice mix over Jasmine rice. Text-wise we finished digesting My Year of Rest and Relaxation + regretted that we kept reading it. We knew from the beginning the book would end on 9/11 + sure enough it did, but in such a random + meaningless way. There was just nothing intresting about the plot OR the writing... u bedder bend it like Beckett if you're gonna attempt to write about nada.
14 April> Kale + mushroom gorgonzola quiche w/ roasted potatoes + Brussel sprouts (our bedder-½'s student souprized us w/ them, otherwise we avoid 'em like the plague... much as we hate 'em we ate a dozen so they wouldn't go to waste). Later that night while we were sleeping it was like a film where 2 legless bodies were trying to get away from this guy that was trying to hurt them. One of the amputees was played by Peter Dinklage. He climbed up one of those rope ladders to a crow’s nest + right when he got to the top the camera zoomed in while there was a dramatic pause + he lifted his finger to his mouth then threw his head back + cackled as if he was having a revelation of what trick to do next to fend of the evil pursuer (who had legs). It was terrible acting, but excusable since it was one of his early films. When he got up to the crow's nest platform he stretched into a down-dog + when he came out of it he had turned into a cat.
15 April> Black bean tacos w/ homemade tortillas + guacomole, scallions + arugula. Then we were at some event, maybe a memorial, but we don’t know who died + it wasn’t somber + Thom Yorke was speaking at it. We couldn’t believe our friend's (who weren't even familiar w/ his music) got Thom Yorke to speak at their event + we were thinking of what we could say to him after + all we could think of was to ask if they planned out their time signatures, or whether they just happened naturally. So we ended up not going up to him.
16 April> We had a bunch of tomatos of diffrent varieties to use up so made a tomato sauce w/ loads of mushrooms + also some peppers + carrots. Had it w/ some weird shell pasta that was all that was left when we went to the store a month ago + also garlic bread + a salad.
17 April> Went to pick up our CSA this morning: milk, eggs, goat cheese, parsley, greens, oyster mushrooms, black beans, turnips, radishes + jerusalem artichokes (which we've never cooked with.... any ideas?).
Still haven't dipped much into our freezer or pantry, nor have we ordered takeout, but at some point we're gonna have to brave the lines at Trader Joes (it's back open, but now the Whole Foods near us is a COVID hotspot).
