This is gonna be quick, but the incredible news is that I’ve found what has to be the best hat in the entire world:
Yes, it’s covered in sushi. It’s made by Sugoi (which happens to be the term for “incredible” in Japanese), an athletic company out of Vancouver, and I found it at REI yesterday on a requisite stop in the Seattle tour with the in-laws.
Here’s a quick lunch idea, from when I made myself a fancy lunch for one the other day: boil up a cup of orecchiette pasta. Save about 2 tablespoons of its water, and when the pasta is done, mix it with the water, 2 ounces crumbled fresh goat cheese, a handful of toasted walnuts, 2 tablespoons julienned sundried tomatoes, and a big scoop of that amazing lemony sorrel pesto (or whatever you have on hand).
So that’s it, recipe 54 of 365, the perfect antidote to those days when it’s cold and cranky outside and you want a lunch that’s quick but still satisfying.
