I've been a slacker blogger. My brain has been jam-packed with many, many things this past week or so. Anyway, we went to the zoo w/ AJ and Brook Friday and here are (just) a few photos.
We all saw an enormous sea lion go #2 right in front of us and I gag just thinking about it...really rank!
I'm tuckered but wanted to mention two things:
1. If you need a new salad dressing or, even if you don't, make this one:
your salad consumption will increase exponentially. it is the bee's knees, the cat's pajamas, the bomb. and don't get freaked out by the miso, it's a nice ingredient to have around. i agree with Deb @ SK that a small shallot is best (I used large as suggested once and couldn't eat it, my eyes watered and I was gasping for air). and, I also add sunflower seeds to my ensalada. I've made this weekly for the past several weeks and EVERY time I lick the bowl clean, scrumptious!
2. if you need a book to read, try this one:
it's not quite as funny as Waiting for Birdy by Catherine Newman (http://www.amazon.com/Waiting-Birdy-Frantic-Neurotic-Growing/dp/0143034774/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1276493730&sr=1-1) but it's still hilarious (and also sadder than Newman's book), especially if you're a mama.
