Molly: Vietnamese fish

The fish special at Ngon Vietnamese Bistro (I can't remember what fish it was) with coconut rice and asparagus. I'm not a huge fish eater, but I ate every last bite. It was amazing.

Kim: Pesto Walleye

Looking for ways to use that pot of pesto from last summer 
(with rosemary sweet potatoes and grilled peppers)

Molly and Kim: Asparagus and eggs

We had Midnight Asparagus with Creamy Eggs for dinner. The recipe came from The Splendid Table (click the "read more" link below).

Molly: Chicken pie

Copying Mommy.

Kim: Potato Gnocchi

The penultimate pot of pesto (from summer 2009) went on my potato gnocchi. The pears were juicy; the tomatoes so-so.

Molly: PB & J

Worked tonight until late so I brought a pack lunch: PB & J, corn chips, garbanzo bean dip. I can't even remember the last time I had PB & J. I eat a lot of PB, but decided to spice it up tonight with the J. It's going to be hard to make this work posts interesting-looking, because I am very uncreative when it comes to pack lunches. (Notice my cool lunchbox in the background with the picture of a laughing sun.)

Kim: Chicken Pie

There's no one here. I'm all alone. Leftovers - homemade chicken pie and 2/5 of my daily five.

Kim: Pizza

Macalester paid for the pizza while I made phone calls to get people to attend the reunion in June. Mmmm... looks bloody good, no?

Molly: Indian leftovers

(From India House in St. Paul)

Leftover Indian food and reruns of 30 Rock on a gloomy day is pretty darn close to heaven

Molly: Blue Door Luau blucy on 4/24/10

My first dinner. By pure coincidence, I took a picture of the Blue Door Pub's Luau blucy that I had last night because I liked the look of it. Today, my mom and I went to the St. Paul Art Crawl to see various pieces and, in particular, the work of Amy Egenberger. She mentioned some of the projects she's done where she will mix a paint color a day or make a doll a day for a year. And, thinking about what we'd like to do each day for a year, food and photography cropped up. I remembered taking pictures of all the things I ate while studying abroad my junior year in college and how those pictures served as an indirect chronicle of my travels, my interests, and the ways in which I spent my days. It never occurred to me to do the same thing once I came home.

And, so, we are taking pictures of what we eat for dinner every night for as long as we can keep it up. We both like food and we both like photography, so it seemed like a good mix. Who knows how this space will morph and change as we figure out how we want to present it. So, for now, I leave you with the Luau blucy.

Pineapple, canadian bacon, and angus beef don't work as well as I had hoped, but I'm determined to try every blucy at the Blue Door before I leave for grad school in the fall.

Until tonight,
