Following morganth is not for everyone.

People who are allergic to BODY ONCE TOLD ME jokes should not follow morganth.

Side effects of following morganth may include mild amusement, bafflement, and reinforcement of the stereotype that people who live in can’t shut up about NYC.

Ask your doctor if following morganth is right for you.

Food, vegetarian, cooking tip 

I made buttermilk scones today, which I’ve done many times, but discovered something new this time. After I’d worked the dough the right amount I folded it once, pressed it to the desired thickness, and cut it. The result was scones that pull perfectly in half, because of that fold that wasn’t really worked.

Update today: My shoulder is a little sore, and that’s it by way of side effects. Fellow residents: If you’re eligible, get the shot. Let’s get this city open again.

Cabbagetown Cafe used to have a wonderful "Soup, Salad and Bread" meal. A cup of their soup of the day, a salad with their famous "LSD" (Lemon Sesame Dressing), and a thick slice of fresh-baked bread, either cornbread or whole wheat.

Sadly, the restaurant is long gone, but we're recreating (-ish) the meal for dinner tonight. The soup is leftover split pea. The salad doesn't have the LSD dressing, but it does have a homemade sesame dressing. And I made fresh cornbread.

I still remember that when the iPhone was first announced, I wrote a blog post about "a portable device with always-on Internet access and GPS, imagine the possibilities", and two of the ideas I came up with were:

-A dating app that identifies other users who are currently nearby

-A Pokemon-style game where you catch the critters by going to real places

And of course I didn't do anything with either of them. Sigh.

COVID, vaccine, NYC, + 

has passed two million doses of vaccine administered. Even taking into effect that the vaccines need two doses for the most part, we’re well on the way. I’m getting my first dose on Friday.

Food, meat 

Made instant pot split pea and ham soup for the first time yesterday. I’d never made split pea soup before because, pre-instant pot, I thought dried beans and peas were too much effort. What I didn’t know was that leftover split pea soup shrinks when you put it in the fridge. I guess the peas keep absorbing the liquid? The leftover soup today was half the volume of the soup I put in the fridge last night.

This is a professionally-printed sign, so multiple people had to look at this and not notice. I mean, I guess you do devour hors d’oeuvres?

Food, meat 

This was my homemade breakfast this morning. I got the recipe from Epicurious, and only realized after I made it that it was basically a very fancy BEC. Turkey sausage patty, fried egg, feta, harissa on a bun.

My PlayStation. Is trying to get me to try a game that, near as I can tell, is called “Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Warzone Season 2”. I think you can trim a couple of words there, EA.

My local Dunkin Donuts is now selling avocado toast. Sorry, avocado toast, you had a good run.

A webcomic I read just pointed out, and now I can’t unsee it, that every Winter Olympics sport is about mastery of sliding. Sliding is what defines the Winter Olympics.
