Class time at the Keg.

We are so desperate for human interaction as a cohort that we wound up having our own mini in-person class. Massive props to the lovely people at the Keg that tucked us into a cozy little corner where we would be out of the way!

Tuna tartare

Can’t study and steak, so I went with my fall-back fav, ahi tuna with a pile of toasty chips and creamy avocado, with a massive squeeze of lime. Tasty!

French onion soup + a margarita

Followed up with a lovely cheesy oniony french onion soup and the special margarita because sometimes class just goes down easier with a little bit of something lubricating hehe

Adventures in 3d.

Continuing on with the adventures of designing a logo that could be transformed into a pottery stamp, we needed to get the logo to conform to a very specific set of measurements. Our 3D printer couldn’t print widths of smaller than 2mm without running the risk of having the material snap right off, but the stamp couldn’t be larger than 28mm in diameter or it’d be too big for some of the things Chels makes. So we adapted the logo into this chunky little cutie.

Bits of last week #3

1. These white rabbit candy ice cream bars! When I was growing up, my grandmother seemed to have an endless supply of these milky chewy candies that came wrapped up in edible rice paper. Came across the ice cream version of these in a local Chinese supermarket, so of course I had to get a few boxes, which is just as well as I can’t find them anywhere anymore…

Marinated mozzarella farro bowl.

Been trying to cook a little more, especially since I’ve been working at home so much. My new obsession is grain-based salads, because I can make a huge tupperware’s worth of salad and slowly fork away at it over the course of a few days and the grains just absorb all the delicious flavours and get so tasty, it’s ridiculous. This one was adapted off of a Hello Fresh recipe to work with whatever I had on hand.

Roasted some zucchini and cherry tomatoes, tossed in some random herbs and olive oil. Vegetables are always better roasted, and it’s so easy to shove it in the oven and leave it while I do other things. In this case, watch my prof on Zoom with my video off…

Tore some fresh mozzarella into small chunks, mixed it with some store-bought pesto. Probably one of my favourite sides I’ve picked up from Hello Fresh, although okay basically anything with cheese I’m a sucker for. (Ignore the gory reddish smear in one corner, I poked my cheese with the same fork I’d used to mix up some balsamic dressing, whoops.)

Tossed all my veg and farro together, which had the added bonus of bursting some of the roasted tomatoes out of their skins, which added a bonus bright pop to my balsamic dressing too, so good!

Bits of last week #2

1. These lovely double-walled India Mahdavi x Nespresso coffee cups, even if one morning in my sleep-deprived haze I somehow managed to pour half the cup into my lap. They feel fantastic to the touch, and have just the right amount of weight to feel super satisfying to handle

2. This beautiful view while I waited to get my second Covid-19 vaccine dose… I am now officially fully vaccinated! Less fun was the subsequent headache and fever and exhaustion, but… eh. Worth it.
