This was Sunday supper this past week… though preparation started on Saturday night because the pork cooks for 18 hours. It was holiday-worthy for a nothing-special day.
Story of my life
A Toast Story
The menu also features a go-for-broke option called “Build Your Own Damn House,” which consists of a coffee, a coconut, and a piece of cinnamon toast. Hanging in the door is a manifesto that covers a green chalkboard. “We are local people with useful skills in tangible situations,” it says, among other things. “Drink a cup of Trouble. Eat a coconut. And learn to build your own damn house. We will help. We are building a network.”
I’ll admit, I clicked on this article because I really love both commercial toasters (a love developed in corporate cafeterias) and the ability to buy toast on the go (a love developed in London), and the accompanying tweets promised this trend was Chicago-bound. Alas, the story here is about a lot more than bread.
Leave the keys under the mat. I’ll take this loft exactly as it is.
The polar vortex did not provide any days off for me, so at the end of the workday, I am focused solely on getting HOME… and making home as aesthetically appealing as possible.
London street style. Best of all, she’s in human resources.

Winter jam. A bit haunting and unintelligible, but then there’s that kicky bit that makes me want to ice skate (as if I could).
PSA: If you need a gift for a holiday swap, I highly recommend the potted Christmas cacti from Sprout Home. Festive but still usable after the season, gender-neutral, easy to care for, and just about $20, cool pot included. I liked the idea so much that I snagged this one for myself (aka Old Black Thumb).
In spite of it being my first time cooking lamb, these Lamb Chops with Pomegranate (and feta and olive) Relish were pretty scrumptious AND perfectly hued for the holiday season.
Also, how did it take me so long to put pomegranate arils on cereal?
