  • 30 foods a day

    I quite like these stories about lunch times in Japanese schools. The bit that western journalists seem to fixate on is the lower obesity rates in Japanese kids. The bit that I’m really interested in is the ’30 foods a day’ rule. Followed closely by the importance of sitting down at a shared table to […]

  • Soccer update

    Soccer update: pitch filled with intimidating tween Matildas, so kicked in the park. Got pooped on by a bird. Dog still scared of ball.

  • Updates.

    Hello! I’m still here! Had a stupid busy few months, though. November-February is THE busiest time of year. End of year wrapping up, christmas drama, new year drama.

  • Women’s History Month: *facepalm*

We are still not cooking meat at home for dinner. It’s been ages, and we’ve only cooked meat perhaps 6 times […]

  • Country Red Rice (from Sri Lanka, Jothi brand)

    Country Red Rice (from Sri Lanka, Jothi brand), originally uploaded by dogpossum. …with some leftover curry. country-red-rice-closeup, originally uploaded by dogpossum. This rice is DELICIOUS. It’s like brown rice, if you’ve rubbed off most of the brown, and the brown is actually a rusty red. It’s sort of a broken grain, and clumps together when […]

  • No Meat Week: no. 65million – Red Slop and Nice Rice

    We are still not cooking meat at home. Although we did last night. But that was an exception, and organic, free range lalala hippy la meat. That’s the rule. No cooking meat unless it’s from organic free range lala sources. But that’s the only time we’ve cooked meat since we started this whole thing. Recipes […]
