Stefan Sagmeister at the Institute for Contemporary Art
Well, I made it out of the past few months alive. Some notable things that have happened since the last blog post a few months ago: I moved (2 blocks away), trained for and completed my first 10-mile run (something I never thought I'd be able to do), started gardening (my lettuces are doing very well, thank you), gave a couple talks, got into my first (minor) car accident, finished a dissertation chapter, and taught my first semester-long class. All of this has kept me away from this blog and from the internets in general. It seemed like all of my free time was spent exercising and nearly all my clothing purchases of the last several months, of which there have not been very many, have been exercise clothing...who would've thought that yoga clothes aren't terribly well-suited for running?!

The students are taking their final exam tonight and grades are due 72 hours after. I can't wait to be done!

Not many things have caught my eye this season. It also seems that many of my favorite labels have raised their pricepoints, making items that I once considered to be splurges now completely out of reach. However, I'd really love to get a pair of nice sandals. These Rachel Comey Kintas have been on my mind. I love the silver accents, though I wonder if the thin heel strap and wooden platform combo would cause blisters.

I have been on a sorbet-making bender recently, mostly due to the fact that we committed ourselves to a flat of strawberries over the weekend. They are so simple to make and a great way to use up fruit that might be a bit too ripe to eat plain. I made up these two "recipes" on a whim...they're both just a combination of fruit, booze, sugar/honey, and acid. Neither are especially ground breaking or creative, but they are seriously delicious.
Strawberry-Balsamic Sorbet
1 quart local* strawberries, hulled and halved or quartered
3/4 c. sugar (adjust to taste)
1-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (adjust to taste)
1-2 tbsp tequila or vodka, or whatever you have on hand.
Combine strawberries, sugar, and balsamic vinegar. Let macerate at room temperature for 10-15 minutes. Puree in blender until smooth. Pour the liquid through a strainer to get all the seeds out (you could skip this step if you wanted). Add booze and stir. Chill for 30 minutes. Process in ice cream maker** for 30 minutes or until liquid achieves sorbet-like consistency.  Freeze for another 30 minutes.
Mango-Lemon-Coconut Cream Sorbet
3 ataulfo mangos, peeled, pitted, and chopped
1 can of coconut cream (coconut milk would probably work just as well. i used the cream because it was the only thing we had in the pantry)
honey (to taste)
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1/2 lemon
1-2 tbsp tequila or vodka, or whatever you have on hand
Combine mangoes, coconut cream, and honey. Puree in blender until smooth. Add lemon zest, juice, and booze. Stir. Chill for 30 minutes. Process in ice cream maker for 30 minutes or until liquid achieves sorbet-like consistency. Freeze for another 30 minutes.
* I don't mean to sound like a food snob about this, but I don't think supermarket strawberries would yield the same strong strawberry flavor that local ones would.

** Like many people, I try not to buy single-purpose kitchen gadgets, especially those that take up a lot of space, so an ice cream maker is exactly the the type of thing I'd shy away from. But I get so much use out of my ice cream maker that I absolutely do not regret the purchase. I got this model a few years ago because it was relatively less expensive than the other options. It has held up very well.
