Sometimes, kale chips just seem like a way to make kale unhealthy.
Last beets standing. They could only weigh down my produce drawer for so long.
YUM! Too bad they aren’t local.
Alright Japan, now you’re just toying with us. Your relentless onslaught of weirdness and cuteness has us glued to our monitors lest we miss the next awesome thing you create or do. We’re putty in your hands. Now you’ve gone and made a series of photographs of cats dressed up as creative interpretations of sushi toppings, resting comfortably atop giant mounds of sushi rice, secured by enormous strips of nori. This one has pretty much rendered us speechless.
These “Sushi Cats” or “Neko-Sushi” are the work of Japan-based company Tange & Nakimushi Peanuts. Who needs to shower or go to work when there is stuff like this to see?
“According to the History of Sushi Cats video, the cats are a magical and historical creature that have been influencing humans since the beginning of time. Tange & Nakimushi Peanuts has released a mobile game app for iPhone and Android phones featuring the Sushi Cats. They also have an online store that offers photo prints, postcards and more (only available in Japan).”
Neko-Sushi is an extremely unusual life-form consisting of a cat on top of a portion of sushi rice. Although several references have come down to us through history from various researchers and witnesses, their existence is still shrouded in mystery and actual sightings remain rare.
There are several academics who have devoted their lives to the study of these creatures. According to a number of these, Neko-Sushi make use of gaps in space to come to us from an alternate dimension. Beyond these “gaps” lies the world of the Neko-Sushi in which, it is recently understood, lies the true identity of the cats that dwell with us here in the human dimension.
We can’t look away. It’s just too cute… too strange… too awesome.

Gardening is the single most optimistic activity I know. It seems like it couldn’t possibly work. And yet — somehow or the other, and usually not exactly the way you plan — it does work.
At least, again this April, that’s what I hope.
Fresh, local Romaine! Swoon….
So maybe if you live in California (lucky you), this looks like slim pickins for the farmers’ market. But all I can say is — wow, the Montclair Farmers’ Market is coming back! I happened to go past on my way to brunch on Saturday, and there were honest to god brussels sprouts, chard, and Romaine lettuce straight from the greenhouse. And if you still don’t believe it’s spring, today I pulled dandelions from my driveway.
I wish to live in a terrarium.
Going to roast some reindeer noses.
Scale confirms what my children have been telling me for years — squash is the vegetable of the devil. #6.666 pounds
Hey, it’s ok to be different.
