Yehaw…

So, I’ve been feeling rather lazy and uninspired lately. I blame the lazy part on the days spent sitting on the beach, and the uninspired by the fact that my times been spent mostly studying rather than…well, whatever everyone else does on the beach…

 

For as long as I can remember my family has been going down to the beach at the same time, and as long as I can remember I had summer homework to do during those couple of weeks because I put it off through June and July. When I was young the work was easy, just reading a few book, a couple essays. Now in college it’s playing catch up and preparing for classes, and getting ready to move. This year I have the GRE to study for and I’m continuing the work from my earlier internship. I love what I do, and I wouldn’t trade this summer for any other, but at the same time I hope some day I’ll look back on this and recall this as an easy summer as well. (this will probably happen some time in the next couple months when I’m sleep deprived and in up to my eyeballs in school work and research)

 

 

But let’s get to something y’all are more likely to want to read about…more beach eats, from the last couple days…

 

Breakfasts:

 

Polenta on a bed garlic spinach, an topped with diced zucchini*, tomatoes*, feta cheese and an egg (could’ve gone without the egg) all beautifully lit in the morning sunlight.

 

Lunch:

 

 

A cup of roasted red pepper soup toped with chives and blue cheese, paired with a sesame seaweed salad. All courtesy Mama Kwan’s OBX mile post 11.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dinners:

Lightly breaded baked eggplant on top of broiled zucchini* served with a fresh mairanara and parmesan.

 

 

Macaroni and cheese with kale, served with lima beans and topped with salt and pepper tomatoes*

 

*brought from my garden

 

 

I did manage to get out a bit yesterday. It rained so we (along with most everybody else on the beach) decided it was the perfect time to go see a movie. What did we choose?

 

Cowboys and Aliens

 

 

We’ve got Indiana Jones paired with James Bond as our two hunky tough as nails cowboys, and Tron’s new drop dead damsel for the eye candy factor. How can you go wrong with this cast? (probably by throwing in aliens)

 

Well unfortunately it wasn’t good enough to make my top ten but I did enjoy it. I went into it not expecting a full on serious movie, I mean they mixed a a western with a sci-fy for goodness sake, but it was fun.

 

It starts off with a few shots of Butch Cassidy esq scenery, a bit more violence than I enjoy and then we introduce the aliens. I cant say much more without giving away any spoilers, and I hate when people do that to me so I’ll shut up here.

~ Harrison Ford: do you prefer Han Solo or Indiana Jones?

It’s probably not surprising that I fall into the Han Solo category…
