I have started a toy focused Instagram account called Ode to Toy.
Recently, I ended up with a lot of full leaf spinach (the way they’re harvested), green onions and cilantro from a grocery trip. It was my first time getting such spinach for myself, usually getting them in pre-packaged bags without long stems. Summer abundance meant the bundles I bought, along with the green onions and cilantro, were also excessive, so I had a lot of vegetable stems on my hands all of a sudden. Not being one to waste food, I thought about what I could do with all these stems, since they weren’t generally appealing to me if they would have been used like the rest of the stock. I didn’t like the crunchy nature of the stems, and the green onion stems were just a bit odd in flavour for my liking. I usually eat the green onion stalks a bit into the white where it starts to bulge into the bulbs, but this batch had a lot of white before it bulged and I was going to challenge myself to eat a good portion of it rather than waste it.
After some thinking, stem soup was what I came up with.
OK. Gangnam style video links have taken over my Facebook world. Everybody seems to be sharing one, and there are all kinds! Many are really bad, though all are bad if you really can’t stand the song like some people I know.
I’m sure I haven’t seen them all, so to make up for all the bad ones I’ve seen, I’m hoping some of you will share with me your favorite Gangnam Style videos. I’ll trust you have good taste. 😉
Just paste a link in the comments section below. Thanks!
Meanwhile, here are a few I’ve seen of late which I liked.
This post contains explicit language and wicked humour, but justified, so if you are allergic to either, please read something else. 😉
Do you believe in signs? Signs in omens?
I certainly do, and I saw one today that has me convinced the Vancouver Canucks will win the Stanley Cup in 2011.
Look at the logos of the two teams the way they will be shown during the finals, with the home advantage team customarily on the right. What do you see?
