for cubs?

In our continuing efforts to downsize in preparation for “tiny living”, I downsized myself out of garden space.  We moved back to our previous 2-acre, mountain-top abode, but anything other than container gardening is impossible with out a major terracing project to provide flat space on the side of the mountain.  So, we’re going to attempt to grow a few squash & cucumbers on the deck using the railings as support.  But, considering the fact that my dog has tree’d several black bears during the past two-weeks.  Am I simply creating a buffet dinner on my porch?  Nature. Hmm.  This next Call wants to know your perspective.  Take a look…

where I can find

TAHINI?

Have you ever gone to the grocery store in search of just ONE item, but you quickly discover that the grocers have moved it to a different location.  And, even when you ask a cashier, butcher or produce manager, no one can seem to tell you where it is or why it was moved.  Me too.  Recently I looked for tahini for 20 minutes.  I eventually found it near the pickles.  Go figure.  Well, this public service announcement is no different…

You have been asking and asking, “I follow you on Facebook; so why don’t I see your posts?”   We share your frustration, but instead of climbing on into the choir loft and joining all of the voices singing the Facebook woes, let’s just try to fix the problem.  Here’s an infographic… (post continues below)

My kitchen is now tiny.  My family has been downsizing year by year in prep for permanent tiny living.  My kitchen/dining are is 10′ square.  Not small by NYC efficiency standards.  For a cabin in the woods serving a family of 3 foodies, it IS small space for a double sink, full-size stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, kitchen table, 4 chairs, & dog bowls.  We adapted an under-the-stairs closet as a pantry, created a custom overhead pot rack to free up cabinets space and hung a small folding step stool on the wall to allow easy access to cabinet top space.  It is working.  In fact, I might be able to work in LESS space.  Who knew my space adaptive efforts would be both useful AND a stylish upgrade to my mountain-top kitchen?  But can I apply those skills to this next Call?  Just maybe…

“Wheelchairs, walkers, prosthetics, crutches and other assistive technology devices are part of our lives. But in the grand scheme of design innovations, they’ve been left in the dust. There are hundreds of thousands of designs for glasses, chairs, and tech of every other kind.  Now’s your chance to help change the conversation about assistive technology of the future.” –from the prospectus

New Orleans is one of my favorite cities for food.  I really believed that Hurricane Katrina would put an end to the complex palate of taste that defined this beautiful town for me.  I had the privilege to visit a mere 2 years after the tropical disaster.  I was amazed.  You can’t keep New Orleans down then, now or EVER.  This next Call wants your perspective on the impact–maybe even culinaryTake a look…

As I get older, my tastes skew toward whole foods with a higher fat content–nuts, cheese, olives. Yum.  My dog is newly enamored with cheddar cheese and almonds too.  She recognizes the crackle of the almond bag from the other side of the house, ha.  We try to maintain enough self-restraint to limit her people food to minimum, but it is hard to say “no” to that sweet face.  This next Call wants your work depicting your pet family.  AND, it helps pets find families…

NO CHICKEN
for dinner

I have nieces in college that will only eat chicken & potatoes.  More accurately, their preference is chicken fingers & fries.  These ladies are in their twenties.  Their parents chose their battles, so to speak, and apparently food wasn’t one of them.  Even on special occasions like holidays & birthdays (not even their own), someone always cooks chicken fingers, nuggets or tenders for these two just to keep the peace.  This would be a declaration of war in my house.  This next Call wants YOUR take on conflict–not just from the battleground either.  This is a great opportunity to stretch your artistic self conceptually…

“The R Dixon Gallery invites you to visually express what New York means to you-whether you are born and bred, visit occasionally, or simply feel in sync with a New York sensibility.  Please submit original art that best expresses your unique and personal translation of the “New York State of Mind” theme.” –from rdixongallery.com
