Project 365: Week Twenty-One (May 15-21, 2011)

This is the soundboard at church (the SU does sound when he isn't playing).  I used to help run sound many, many years ago and I decided it was time to take my skills out of storage and dust them off so I had him give me a refresher lesson.  Maybe I can get good enough again to occasionally run sound.


Curious Grace huddled up in "her" chair - which, of course, belongs to the Large Man.


The Spousal Unit has told me for years how he LOVES these things and even though we're only one state over from where they manufacture them, we've never been able to find the orange cupcakes.  When I was picking up his prescription, I saw the store had these in the snack aisle so I got him a couple.


This was dinner tonight.  They are called banh mi and are a Vietnamese sandwich.  The filling is pork meatballs made with pork, basil, cilantro, Sriracha sauce, sugar, salt, cornstarch and onion.  The topping is cilantro and julienned radish and carrot that have been mixed with wine vinegar.  Yummy!


This photo required a bit of, um, judicious editing.  The Spousal Unit is in the midst of the smelly and thankless task of emptying the catbox and he has a pair of gloves he uses when he does it.  As you can see, they are rather...pink.  I held the camera up to take a picture and he said, "Oh, no you are NOT."  I said, "Yes, I am!" and he decided that sign language would be the way to show me he was displeased with the idea. 

Still took the picture.  Hah!


Munchkin doing what she does best:  sleeping.  Of course you know I can't let her just peacefully lie there...

Why must you torment me, woman?


I bought some heirloom tomatoes today so I can make roasted tomato soup tomorrow or Monday (tomatoes, onion, garlic, cream, sherry...mmmmm).


  1. good job pixeling the picture! ha!

    I never did like the hostess cupcakes....Twinkies were my fav!

  2. Loved the pictures. I have never been a hostess cupcake fan...and have never seen orange ones. Obviously they don't make it to Alabama. Loved the changing of the cat litter pic....too funny.

  3. I remember the orange cupcakes, yuck!!! I'm glad I'm not the only one who loves to take pictures of sleeping cats. Mine have about the same reaction as yours do.

  4. I've never heard of an orange hostess cupcake. We learn something new everyday, I suppose.

    Nice editing job there!

  5. Roasted tomato soup sounds delicious! And that sandwich made me drool all over my keyboard :)

    I'm surprised they make pink gloves that big :)

    Have a great week!

  6. Those orange Hostess cupcakes are a specialty around here, we can usually find them. I'm crazy for the Hostess Cherry Pies.

    That soup sounds awesome!

    Hugs & love,

  7. omg,that soup sounds wonderful! and the sandwich does too; I'm on board with anything that has cilantro in it.

  8. mmmm...that sandwich looks delish. I need to get me a pair of those pretty pink gloves! (and you did a great editing job!)

  9. Good for you, sound woman!
    Fun series of cat stories this week ;)
    Great food!

  10. You're so funny. My husband knows my password - he'd just go in & delete the picture. Heh. Love your cats - they have attitude. And that sandwich looks really good. I LOVE cilantro...
