wool boots

and...
only orangette can make me want to run home from work and stew prunes.

oh and i'll be gone for a few days. i'm traveling to texas to celebrate my youngest sister's birthday, to see the andrea zittel exhibition at the contemporary arts museum in houston, try to see my friend aaron's play, drink some coffee at brazil, eat some oysters, do a little shopping and a lot of resting.

i'm finally starting to dig my way out from under all of the things to do that seemed to pile up while i ran off to the midwest for a few days. this is a crazy time for my family. a lot is happening for us all and it was lovely and unexpected to see my sisters, mom and dad for a bit (despite the horrible weather in chicago, which i'm still experiencing back here in new york too). i've nearly lost my voice from cheering on my dad and i think i may have caught a cold, but i'm very happy that i went and beyond proud of what he has accomplished.

i'm working from home today and i wanted to post a picture of the wonderful seckel pears i bought at the green market this past weekend. they are so delicious. firm, not too sweet, extremely satisfying. as you can see from the picture, we've already devoured nearly half of them.

polish apple pancakes

1 cup flour
1 tablespoon superfine sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon canola oil, plus some extra for frying
5 medium apples, peeled and thinly sliced
powdered sugar

in a bowl, combine flour, sugar if desired and salt. in another bowl, lightly beat egg; add milk and oil.

add to dry ingredients and stir until smooth. fold in apples.

in a heated pan with several tablespoons of oil, pour batter by 1/2 cupfuls and spread to form a 5-inch circle. turn when bubbles form. cook on the second side until golden brown and apples are tender. sprinkle with powdered sugar and eat them just like that (or with maple syrup, if you must).

makes 12-14 pancakes.

i love this stool from the ikea PS collection. its called eskilstuna, its made of wool and steel and it costs $15. the new ellan rocking chair is nice too.


i've always wanted to live in a house boat at least once in my life. it must be the water-loving, piscean part of me. (found on moco loco).
