I first had Japanese carrot-ginger salad dressing at a sushi place in New Haven maybe 20 years ago. This style of dressing has become a staple in our kitchen. It’s a versatile dressing, so if you’re not too much of a purist, any of these variations can be enacted depending on what’s in your pantry and still with positive results.
Fourteen years ago today Kate and I got married. Last year I wrote about our vows, stating then that we succeeded in identifying principles that would make up a code of ethics for our married life, but the vows didn’t include overtly appreciating each other. I get it now.
Hooboy I loves me some Bonnie Raitt . . .
This weekend I played my first tennis tournament since 1989. It was in a sense no big deal – I played in a division that both represented the lowest skill level offered and was so under-enrolled that, win or lose, I would only play one match – so, in that sense, hardly worthy of acknowledgment, much less celebration. However, as a milestone moment in a longer journey, this was an intense and symbolically loaded experience.
