What I’ve been eating

My wife bought a meal kit from Xi’an Famous Foods since I haven’t been able to travel much this past year and I miss so many of my favorite NYC takeout spots. I been addicted to their Spicy Cumin Lamb Noodles for many years now. This was one of the best meal kits I’ve ever tried.

Anson Mills Sea Island Red Peas and Carolina Gold Rice has been a staple meal for us this month as we are focusing on eating more fish and vegetarian meals and a little less meat each week.

I learned a lesson in patience and calm trying out a new nib grind for the first time with the Fanklin-Christoph S.I.G

I made my first custom paper pad orders from Blank Slate Paper Co.
