keeping parsley fresh























parsley is always on hand in
my kitchen.
having tried different
storage methods
this is the best one
(almost too good).
rinse the bunch of parsley,
trim off the
ends and plunge
into a jar of fresh water,
top with a plastic bag
and place on the fridge
door (works best for me).
change the water frequently
and you will have fresh
parsley for days, weeks...
this bunch is still green
after a week and a half.

earth hour letdown


















miss m and i went out
for a state of the earth hour walk.
we met families with young
children carrying candle lanterns.
what did we see?
houses with
lights blazing
and flat screen televisions
flashing bright images,
apartment buildings
fully illuminated.
i wonder if
the children felt disappointed
as i was?
how was earth hour
observed in your
neighbourhood?

spring fever

















































































spring has brought
out cars
if not flowers.
we celebrated the
arrival of the
season
with this
impressive
chocolate cake
and a vividly red
cupcake.
best wishes to all
on the occasion
of the vernal
equinox.
