I think I forgot to mention that I got a bread machine the weekend before last. It was on sale at Williams Sonoma and Bobby and I couldn’t resist. Since then I made a couple kinds of bread from Williams Sonoma mixes – Honey Wheat and Italian Herb. I have been making a lot of these:
The one pictured is with homemade Italian Herb bread, sunflower seed butter (Maranatha), and bananas. It’s good with honey drizzled on it too, but sometimes I am just too lazy. I actually had 2 of these for dinner tonight. I had planned on making stuffed acorn squash but instead decided to be a sandwich bum.
I also saw one of the cutest graffiti ever:
Cat! Too bad it’s not fatter. That would have been the cutest.
Is there graffiti in the town where you live?
Here in NYC it is all over.

A while ago I challenged myself to stop eating salads so often. So I did. I haven’t eaten a salad for a meal since lunch on August 6th. (It was a Tuna Nicoise salad from Macaron, by the way.) Salads are great, but they don’t do so well with my stomach so even though I am the salad girl, I knew I had to take a break.
So what do people eat when they aren’t eating salads?
My first guess was sandwiches. Here are some of the fun combos I have made (or bought). My favorite is at the end.
This sandwich has Steamed Beets (my dad’s), Tofurky, mayo (lots), mustard (lots), and lettuce. The bread is some whole-grain oat nut thing I got at Whole Foods.
This one is a “Peking Style Zen Duck Wrap” (vegetarian) from Zen Palate. It was decent. It was much better dipped in my brother’s dish’s peanut sauce. It had fake duck, lettuce, carrots, and a spinach tortilla.

It is HOT in New York. HOT HOT HOT. Currently (8pm) my weather widget says:
95 degrees F (35 C). What is the best thing to do on a hot day? Get your nails done of course! (I actually had these done yesterday, which was almost as hot.)
This is a “UV manicure” which is supposed to last up to 2 weeks. We’ll just see about that. If it does I will never go back to regular manis, which only last 2 days for me. So far it hasn’t chipped, so it’s off to a good start The woman put a kind of gel on my nails that hardened; then she put on the color. I love dark nails – I always go for dark red/brown/purple, even in the summer. I think I will do purple for the wedding (it’ll be tasteful). Speaking of the wedding…
