Walk Brighton Project Week 5

Cherry Tree

I am nearing the end of this project. I expect that Week 6 will be the last week. Friends ask me what I will do next. It is not as fascinating as Walking Brighton, but I will start training for my second virtual 5k this year.

Social Distancing Bento

social distancing bento

This meal was for me. COVID-19 and Social Distancing has significantly impacted my life. Seeking out whimsy and cute things is part of who I am. When I take photos, I focus on the beautiful. Normally my food is cute, that is my preference. This is not my usual type of theme but maybe the gingerbread man shaped rice makes it comical. Living during a time of a global pandemic makes the formerly odd seem normal. At first it was unusual to see people walk across the street to avoid others. Then it was strange to see people wearing masks in public. Now my rice man is wearing a mask.

I have sewn several masks for myself and friends. I am thankful for sewing skills learned as a child and for a stocked craft room. I want to make a few more for myself to coordinate with various clothing colors / patterns. I see a lot of people wearing masks when they walk in my town. This was not true a month ago. I currently am able to keep more than 6 feet away from people so I don’t usually wear a mask. I have them for times when I can’t social distance.

Container: ECO Lunchboxes

Contents: Gingerbread Man wearing Mask – hot cooked Nishiki rice pressed into a cookie cutter with plastic wrap, carefully push rice out of cookie cutter, Body color – soy sauce, Eyes and Nose – piece of hazelnut, Mask – carrot, Arrows and 6’s – carrot, riced cauliflower and broccoli with garlic

Small Round Container: Freeze Dried Raspberries and Hazelnuts

Walk Brighton Project Week 4

Storybrook at Sunrise

Another week of my Walk Brighton Project completed. I am guessing that it will take 2 – 3 more weeks to finish. I don’t want it to end but I am also looking forward to completing this project. Of course, I will still walk in my town but with a different focus. I now have many favorite neighborhoods to visit again.

Walk Brighton Project Week 3

tree buds

It is spring and I am falling in love…with my town, Brighton, NY. I liked it before but now that I am getting to know it more intimately, it is love. Spring is a special time of year to spend time walking the neighborhoods. Week 3 of my Walk Brighton Project brought more beauty with the opening buds of flowering trees.

I continue to enjoy the nods, waves, and hellos from the few people I pass while walking (at a far distance). One approaching woman and I both moved off the sidewalk and to the road at the same time. We both chuckled and she said, “we are all learning our pedestrian manners.” I have so few in-person conversations nowadays that I cherish these interchanges.

Hearts and Rainbows Lunch

Heart Rainbow Lunch

When I take walks for my Walk Brighton Project, I see hearts and rainbows on doors, windows, and garages. During this time of a global pandemic, people around the world are making hearts and rainbows out of paper and attaching them to their homes. After the storm comes a rainbow. I enjoy looking for them as I get some exercise and fresh air. They inspired this meal I made for myself. Searching for rainbows in my town is one of the many small things that makes this time of social distancing enjoyable.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Virtual Easter Meal

Easter Meal 2020 Virtual

I am social distancing due to the Coronavirus. It was my first year to be alone for Easter. I was still able to enjoy good food and company while celebrating the holiday. I even set my table and wore a dress.

Yesterday, my Mom and I dyed Easter eggs together on video. Today, I made and delivered an Easter meal to my friend Carol (she lives 2 miles away). When I arrived at her home, the beautiful daffodils from her garden were waiting for me in a box outside. I left her a box of food in it’s place. I drove home and then we ate the meal together on video.

Menu

  • Smashed Peas with Whipped Ricotta on homemade French Bread – I did not crisp the bread.
  • Asparagus Soup with Lemon Sour Cream – fresh lemon zest mixed with sour cream
  • Roasted Carrots with Pistachios – I added pistachios after roasting.
  • Individual Easter Peanut Butter Pie – I made it festive by putting an small chocolate chick in it. I am glad that my Instacart shopper was able to get the cute chocolate chicks this week.

Easter Food, Menu, and Special Treat for Carol

Kathy on Carols computer

Note: Carol took the above photo from her home. My Mom said it looks like I am on a cooking show.

It felt very normal to make food for a holiday and I thoroughly enjoyed cooking today. But it is not normal for my family to have an Easter meal at home. We have a tradition of going to a nice restaurant for a buffet meal. My parents and sister actually started the tradition without me when I was 12 and flew to see my Grandparents in Florida one Easter.

My critique of the meal: The food was delicious. It was my third time making the asparagus soup. It was my first time making everything else except for the french bread. If I were to change anything, I would put labels on the containers for Carol. I wanted things to be fresh so gave her many small containers and ended up giving her 3 containers with white stuff (sour cream with lemon zest, whipped ricotta, whipped cream). I think that virtual meals are a good alternative especially when you can share the same food. I would recommend it and do it again.

Happy Easter!

Walk Brighton Project Week 2

Dream House

Walk Brighton Project

Welcome to Week 2 of my Walk Brighton Project. It is bringing a lot of excitement into my life of working from home and social distancing. I am always looking forward to walking new segments of my town and seeking out photos to take.

Architecture Class

I took A Crash Course in American Architectural History II – 20th Century from the Rochester Brainery. It was especially enjoyable to take this online class since I now spend a lot of time looking at examples of architecture in my town.

People

So far, I don’t see a lot of people during my walks around town but the few interactions I have (at a safe distance of course) are memorable. Maybe there are few people because it has been cold and I am a morning person and operate on a different schedule than most people. I have not yet told anyone I see around town what I am doing. I barely speak with the people I pass. I am currently taking a Coursera class, “The Science of Well-Being” by Yale Professor Laurie Santos. The class mentioned how interactions with people, even small conversations with strangers helps to make us happier. My in-person interactions are limited now so the simple “Hello” from a walking neighbor is a small thing that brightens my day.

Some memorable moments:

  • 1 year old blew kisses at me.
  • Woman speaking on the phone said to her friend, “It seems so funny to move out of the way when walking towards people. A woman just moved out of the way!” I was the woman that moved.
  • A woman said, “Hang in there.”
  • Man cutting a board with a circular said, “Hello.” It was so simple but it was memorable because of the tone and richness of his voice. He seemed very kind.
  • A woman looked at me strange when she saw me taking a photo of her house but we did not talk to other than saying, “Hello.”

Easter Bunny Egg Lunch

Easter Egg Lunch

I made this lunch for my friend Carol (before the CoronaVirus). I often make holiday food long before the holiday. Maybe my friends think it is quirky that I give them Halloween or Valentine themed food months before the event but hey don’t complain. In the case of a pandemic, I am glad to have fun holiday food to share here.

Container: Wooden box purchased in Kyoto at Bento&co.

Top: Bunny and Egg – Cheddar cheese cut with a cookie cutter, pasta, goat cheese, roasted asparagus and tomato

Bottom: Eggs – apple cut with a cookie cutter and dipped in water and lemon to prevent browning, sanding sugar, blackberries

Walk Brighton Project Week 1

Heart Rainbow Door

Heart and Rainbow – encouragement during this pandemic

What is the Walk Brighton Project?

I live in Brighton (Rochester, NY). Due to COVID-19, I am currently living a life of social distancing and working from home. When I brainstormed ways to keep things interesting for myself, I remembered a story I saw a long time ago. An Australian man walked a lot of streets in his area. I came up with a plan to walk all of the streets within a certain radius of my home.

Background

I like to keep busy. I had big plans for 2020. I created an info-graphic list of 20 goals for the year. By the beginning of March, I had already completed 4 goals. After the Coronavirus hit New York State, I examined my list to see what I could still do. There are many that I can work on and several are related to being more healthy. Walking is a physical activity that is still available to me now (my 2020 goal to swim 20 times is put on hold).

Timing

My goal is not to be efficient. My goal is to explore my area and get exercise. I am in no hurry to finish this project but I am excited to get out there and explore new areas. That said, I am trying to first focus on areas that would be busy with traffic if we were not on a shut-down due to Coronavirus.

Experience so far…

I am thoroughly enjoying this project! It engages my mind before and after I walk segments. It motivates me to exercise. I get fresh air. I can be creative (with the photos I take). It gives me new experiences. It keeps me busy. It is a perfect project for me.

Fancy Lunch for One

pretty lunch during social distancing

I live alone. During this time of Coronavirus physical distancing, I expect that I will share many meals I make for myself. Usually I prefer to make food for the loved ones in my life. I put more effort into those meals and am often happier with the results. When preparing this meal I decided to make it fancy and it made me happy.

It was my first weekend alone (except for video calls, telephone calls, and numerous texts). I also waved to people while walking. It may have seemed strange a week ago, but it is now normal to move away when approaching someone while walking in my neighborhood. People are friendly and wave or say hello.

Garganelli Pasta Dinner

garganelli pasta dinner

A week ago, I made a pasta dinner for my companion Ken to celebrate his birthday. When I asked for his request, he said homemade pasta with asparagus. I was excited to try making garganelli with my gnocchi board. It came with a dowel to make garganelli. Mine does not look exactly right but it tasted delicious and Ken was appreciative. He was excited to have leftovers to bring for lunch the next day.

Heart Ravioli

Heart Ravioli Valentine Dinner

I made a heart ravioli dinner for my companion Ken on Valentine’s day. He gave me the gorgeous flowers you can see in these photos.

3 Cheese Heart Ravioli with Garlic Tomato SauceThis is my favorite pasta dough, I used a heart shape cookie cutter to cut the dough. The filling was Ricotta, Mozzarella, and Asiago cheeses with basil and fresh ground pepper. For the tomato sauce I sauteed onion and 4 garlic in olive oil. Then I added a 29 oz can of tomato puree and basil.

Roasted Green Beans with Toasted Almonds and Lemon Zest

Chocolate Fondue with Strawberries and Whipped Cream

Heart Ravioli Meal

Valentine Flowers

My critique of the meal: The ravioli were delicious. I really should make ravioli more often. Ken was thrilled with the meal. I had a little trouble with the chocolate fondue consistency but I think it was operator error. It tasted great and was fun to eat. Earlier in the week when we went to the liquor store to buy the hazelnut liqueur, I was thrilled to get Frangelico in the cute monk bottle. It was a successful Valentine’s Day meal.

X O Bagel and Soup Lunch

My friend Renae, her husband and daughters came over for a Valentine Themed lunch.

X and O Mini Bagels

Cheddar Hearts –  cut with a cookie cutter

Lentil Soup – I did not use the coriander or grains of paradise

Heart Shaped Chocolate Chip Cookies – I did not use the instant espresso powder

Bagel Soup Cookie Meal

Heart Chocolate Chip Cookie Milk

My critique of the meal: Everything was delicious and my guests seemed to enjoy. The only thing I would do different is ask them for bagel topping preferences. I was not sure so I made a lot of plain bagels. When I make for a crowd, I prefer making plain bagels and I add various toppings.

Freezer Meal Gift

Freezer Meal Gift Jan 2020

Last year I started a tradition of making freezer meals for my friend Carol’s birthday gift. It was well received so I decided to do it again this year. I made 4 different types of meals and gave her 15 portions. I saved some portions for myself. The Chili, Cornbread and Chocolate meals are in EasyLunchBoxes.

West African Peanut Soup – I added only 4 cups of vegetable broth and 1 can of coconut milk, halved the ginger, and used spinach instead of greens.

Homemade Fresh Mozzarella Pesto Pizzas with Frozen Yogurt Pies (I used Greek Raspberry yogurt, did not use the fresh raspberries and put the filling in individual graham cracker crusts.)

Rigatoni and Vegetable Casserole (I used Cheddar and Asiago instead of the tofu and omitted the nutritional yeast.)

Chunky Vegetable Chili (I reduced the chili power since Carol does not like spicy food) with Cornbread Muffins (I baked them in muffin tins – did not take as long to bake as original recipe.)

Pesto Fresh Mozz Pizzas

Chili and Cornbread Freezer Meal

Individual Yogurt Cream Pies

Labeled Freezer Food

I am not good at giving gifts but think that this idea is a success. It is fun to think of meals I can make and give to friends. It is an added benefit that I create meals for myself at the same time.

Vegetable Wellington Birthday Dinner

Vegetable Wellington with Lemon Wine Sauce

Last Friday was Carol’s birthday. Instead of going to a restaurant, I offered to make dinner for her at my home. I made the Vegetable Wellington from Thanksgiving 2018 that she loved.

Note: Since this dinner was on a Friday night after work, I did some prep Thursday evening: roasted the vegetables, made the pesto and soup. I kept the dessert easy by buying it Friday afternoon at Wegmans.

Lentil Soup – this was easy to make and delicious. I needed more vegetable broth and did not use the grains of paradise.

Vegetable Wellington (I used frozen Puffed Pastry and did not use mushrooms or eggplant), served with Citrus Beurre Blanc sauce (recipe at the bottom)

Wegmans Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake (half size)

Lentil Soup

Wegmans Chocolate Mouse Cake

My critique of the meal: Wonderful meal! The only thing I would change is to cut the shallots smaller for the Citrus Wine sauce. It would look prettier on the plate. I don’t usually buy dessert but it saved time and was a special treat.

Donkey Pizza Lunch

Donkey Pizza Lunch

I made this for my companion Ken. He likes donkeys. This is the second donkey theme meal I tried to make for him. The first was rice and looked like a horse not a donkey so I didn’t share it here. I don’t think that these donkeys are successful either but the sides are cute. Ken said the meal was delicious.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Donkeys– naan bread cut with a cookie cutter, homemade pesto and fresh mozzarella pizza

Top Right: Apple – cut check pattern, dipped in water with lemon juice to prevent browning

My Cookie Cutter Collection

Cookie Cutter Storage Tote

This is my 1000th post! It’s fitting that it is a photo catalog of all my cookie cutters. I use cookie cutters a lot! A majority of my collection is based on what I think I will use (rarely for cookies). Sometimes I make cute food without cookie cutters but I love cutting food into fun shapes. It is incredibly satisfying and relaxing to push metal or sharp plastic into food.

20 Goals for 2020

I created a list of 20 goals for 2020 and added many items that I have wanted to complete for a long time. I first started photographing my cookie cutters in 2015. Now that I finally have photos of all of my cookie cutters in one accessible place, I plan to update it when my collection grows. This post is also motivation for making cute food with cookie cutters I have not yet used.

My Collection

This may seem like an insanely huge collection but it brings me joy. I actually use them (but rarely for cookies). They are organized in my craft room. I can find what I want fairly quickly. I keep them in labeled plastic totes with labeled zipper plastic bags inside the totes. A friend noticed one of my totes and said that I had a LOT of cookie cutters. I told him that it was only 1 of 4 totes! Many of the cutters came from friends & family, thrift stores, and garage sales. A few of these are from my childhood.

Along with these images I added links to some favorite meals I made with the cookie cutter in the photo.
