In our efforts to deep-clean the house in preparation for sale, getting in the nooks and crannies of our stove was a priority, and this de-greaser recipe is pretty darn awesome. And yeah, it’s just a variation of the many other types of DIY cleaners using stuff we all (should) have around the house. Serious inspiration: prisons with no guards…

This week – lots of shit hitting the fan, lots to call out, and of course, some music to slink around to at the end… “Be on guard for unnecessarily-gendered terms (hysterical, shrill, “man up”, “grow a pair”, ballsy). Notice how those examples are all predicated on the assumption that acting like a man is inherently good, and acting like a woman is…

Thank you, Dr. King. Your inspiration continues to this day, 50 years after we lost you, and we will never give up hope for a better tomorrow. It’s a big day. Read this. And on other topics… “Where once she was edgy and provocative, she is now absurd and offensive. Her views are muddled and incoherent. She is more invested…

Well, I just went to Next Level Burger for the first time – where one can enjoy a delicious burger and a to-die-for shake that are all plant-based (and not-“Frankenmeaty” at all). Proof positive that it is entirely possible to be, as they proudly say in Oregon, a fat vegan. “As long as we don’t have any kind of representation…

Alright it’s the weekend, the clocks are going forward, I’ve made a big pot of jambalaya to make up for the mostly vegan week I’ve had, the weather is supposed to be sunny and in the LOW 60’s this weekend, meeting with a prospective client this coming week, and my husband says he has a surprise outing for us on…

Stuff that’s been rolling around in my own head this past week… Eggs + Souffles + Science = Awesome. Infertility + Elderly Women + Friendship = The Sisterhood of Grief at All Ages. Art + #MeToo + Sports Illustrated = A Step in the Right Direction. More Guns + Women + Rapists = Jessica Valenti calls out more NRA Bullshit.…

Yeah, I got stuff on my mind, y’all…get ready. Billy Graham was a homophobe, a sexist, an anti-Semite, and a fundamentalist religious prick who spoke down to those who dared not embrace his cultish take on spirituality. And now he’s dead. Good fucking riddance. Like HELL was he ‘America’s pastor’. Fuck that shit, that man never spoke for me. Minnie…

Friday Friday Friday! I can’t believe we’re midmonth and after the usual “unseasonably mild” week or two, it’s getting ready to be fucking cold. As in, dammit I got fooled again and had just brought in the ducks’ heated bucket into the garage and now it’s supposed to get into the low 20’s this weekend! D’oh! Anyhoo… So my husband…

We are currently snacking on these awesome savory masa-polenta muffins. Sprinkled some ground pasilla in it and chopped lardo and they’re, well, heaven. Dang, February is full steam ahead. With new coaching client work with two brilliant women in two very different career paths, matched with crazy mild temperatures here in the Rose City, I’m feeling pretty optimistic… * A…

What I’m reading & watching this week, Sex Object by Jessica Valenti, and Mudbound on Netflix. Fantastic, thought-provoking, and worth your consideration. Before I get going, I dig this writeup on garden shoes vs. gardening shoes. Heh. Quote of the week (Samantha Bee) – “If you say you’re a feminist then fuck like a feminist.” I admit, when I first…
