I don’t know how it happened this week, but I had no time for food. Sure, I ate, but not in the usual way. Documenting meals is a less interesting option when you’re home alone for several days in a row and not doing much cooking, and you’re busy doing other things, like making posters and coordinating workshops. PS- I ate tuna sandwiches for lunch several days in a row, and shredded wheat for breakfast.
Instead of the usual ‘what we ate’ post this week, I present to you, demanding internet, a different kind of wonderful. Sofia is the enforcer around here, and if anyone doubts her top-cat status in our house… well, observe this. On calm nap in the sun, one naughty, testing-the-limits-kitten… and a massive smack in the face.
Last week I completely forgot to schedule a what we ate post. I think we had so many appointments and meetings, homework and work, we didn’t plan our meals for the week very well. We ate dinner of course, but it was just very, very disorganized, and most of our dining happened after 9 PM. I think I went to the grocery store three times last week, and couldn’t seem to make a list to buy what we needed all in one go. I was very annoyed with myself, but I guess not enough to pull it together.
This week we’ve decided to get all organized and meal plan-y, with a list of all the possible dinners we can make, based on what we have in the fridge and freezer. Making dinner usually means we’re making lunch for the next day at the same time, because Intern and I usually take lunch to school (or work for Intern). This week I didn’t bring lunch one day because of our complete lack of planning, and it WAS TOTALLY WEIRD. It threw my whole day off, and I bought a crappy lunch at school, and I did not love it. The point of this ramble? I love dinner and lunch, and I need to plan it out.

PS- Our landlord says the apples in the backyard are Fuji! Oh, and our house was built prior to the 1906 earthquake.
I realize most my posts lately have been a whole mix of nothing. No Secret Project on Thursdays (that is on hold until September) rarely any project posts, just food photos, cat photos and some random things here and there. My blogging skills are flailing!
I am going to blame July. It is summer you guys! I am doing projects, I’m just not doing a good job of translating them into blog posts. I am eager to buy a new camera (check out my last post to see some seriously blurry photos) and perhaps that will reinvigorate my blog-drive.
I even have a list of projects to finish before school starts, and I have a whole list of ideas once school starts too… I could blame Sofia here and say she is sleeping on my next project materials (she really is) but I won’t blame her.
Where should this blog go? I don’t know where it is heading, it seems over the past few months I’ve become a food blogger, when I thought I was really a project and art blogger. Maybe I am just a cat blogger, hiding my true calling with some photos of other stuff, just to confuse you. Should I post real recipes with the weekly what we ate feature? Should I share more projects? More garden? Less cat? I don’t know where MPK the blog is going next. I imagine it will start to turn towards thesis work, once school starts again, and my life is consumed by theoretical queries about DIY/sustainability/gift economy/feminism/gender politics and on and on… but what do you want, Internet?
