Highlights of the Fear and/or Sanity Weekend, and Guster

Guster Show & The Most Important Person in My Life

Last weekend we were in D.C. for the rally (I already mentioned this; I also posted about one of the signs I saw). We had to go up very early Saturday morning, because Friday night was a Guster concert in the city. This must be at least the 10th time I’ve seen them, and at least the 5th time with Bobby. They played at Beacon theater and the show sold out. (Guster cruise recap here.)

Here is the same exact picture from 3.5 years ago (!) in the same exact theater seeing Guster together. That weekend was freezing cold and I remember driving either to or from the city in a vicious storm. It was March (?) of 2007 (a little over 1 year into our relationship). Back then I was not eating enough and hardly eating any fats at all and you can tell – I think I look much better now (above). My skin is better now too (my skincare tips here).

My Moral Fiber & I Love Muffins

“Now I think moral fiber‘s about finding that one thing you really care about. That one special thing that means more to you than anything else in the world. And when you find her, you fight for her… And maybe the stuff you do… isn’t so clean. You know what? It doesn’t matter. Because in your heart you know that the juice is worth the squeeze. That’s what moral fiber‘s all about.”

–Matthew Kidman (Emile Hirsch), The Girl Next Door.

I found my one special thing and I’ll fight for him forever. (Love you sweetie! Can’t believe we are getting married in 4 days.)

Recipe: Miso Eggplant Soba Noodles

I first learned about soba noodles from my half-Japanese fiance. He introduced me to “zaru soba“, a favorite of his mom’s, which is simply chilled soba noodles that you dip in a soy saucey sauce. I made it way back in 2007. They are usually topped with scallions and bonito flakes and sometimes seaweed. Ever since my first bite of zaru soba I have been on the hunt for more delicious soba recipes. I found a recipe in The Dancing Gourmet and decided to Maggie-fy it into this…

(Note – I think this would also be awesome if you subbed mushrooms in for the eggplant. Just saying.)
