end of summer food

The last weekend home my parents and I went to breakfast at this place in "downtown" Edmonds, but I already forgot what it's called. It was really good, the potatoes were kind of bland, but I like starch, so I ate them anyway. I only wished that they didn't give me packaged butter. I don't like that. And also more bacon.

spinach and feta scramble

My dad's "Western" omelet (how do you spell this word? spell check always corrects me but I think this looks wrong)


I also made stuffed peppers. I don't really like bell peppers that much, but when they're stuffed with rice and sausage and cheese, they taste pretty good. I couldnt figure out if I wanted to stuff the whole thing, or only half, but I tried cutting the top off in a nice circle and almost cut myself, so I decided to halve them instead. :(

This picture is blurry and bad, but the steam kept fogging up my camera and this is the best I could do. There was also corn, but I forgot to put it in. Anyway, I also made mashed red potatoes with sour cream and garlic. I hope you like these super old plates from before I was born. Or maybe a few years after.

I've made some good food since I got to school, mostly with Neal, but I forgot to take pictures of it, except for this lime garlicky chicken and potatoes au gratin, but they look bad. Cooking for just myself is kind of hard, so I end up eating a lot of starch and cheese. And one time, I tried to make the Elvis sandwich (PB, bananas, bacon) but I didn't have bacon, so I used salami. It was a bad idea. But I think I have being doing an ok job of keeping myself alive. I think we're making pizza this weekend.

Did I post this?

This is an ugly picture of an ugly soup. But it's like the ugly duckling because it tasted good, which is not quite how the story goes but I think you get the idea. I made it earlier this summer. It's pea soup with ham, celery, carrots, potatoes, and onions. I made banana bread yesterday and my dad made dumplings. But I didnt take any pictures. Now I'm going back to Providence today, which I am excited about, but I also don't like leaving home because every time I come back, I love Seattle more and more. BUT I'm looking forward to eating Nice Slice and spinach bagels from Carr Haus so it's not all that bad.

Southern Kitchen

The restaurant in Tacoma where everything is fried or covered in gravy/cheese

Southern fried chicken + corn hash or something + mashed potatoes + mac n cheese
And a corncake that isn't around

Fried okra


clean fish

On another note: this is what appears to be a BLT made by Neal with tomatoes that he grew
