Mark's on campus today for two events - from 7am - midnight! I've been looking forward to this day in a weird way. Mainly because I've been hoping to use the day to do a THOROUGH cleaning of the apartment. At first I had visions of sparkling windows, but I've since revised the plan to include vacuuming and dusting all the vents, with a kitchen floor wash if the day went really well. Things started out great. I awoke full of energy at 7:00. But then, I went to Lambert's. That place is dangerous. For $13, I got 27 cucumbers, 7 yellow squash, 8 tomatoes, 2 red peppers, a head of garlic, daikon radishes, parsley, 1 bunch asparagus, a LARGE bunch of kale, 4 onions, a lemon and a lime. Some of it was their "day-old" stuff, which means you have to get creative. Creative I have been, but it's taken half the day. It's 1:47pm and I'm blogging

So yeah...that should tell you how things are going. Truthfully, I didn't even want to cook today, but it's my drug, and so far we have some kimchi
2 gallons of pickles
some nasty looking vegetable stock
a heap of yellow squash, longing for purpose
a sinkful of dirty dishes and some overripe tomatoes
some photo shy falafel, resting in the fridge and a large roast that needs to be marinated.
And of course the cat refuses to lift a finger around the house. He's really not pulling his weight.
Any suggestions for the tomatoes and cucumbers that don't involve dairy?!
