What a lovely new use for an old gadget. Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan has modified a traditional typewriter and turned it into a painting machine, or “Chromatic Typewriter”. Callahan submitted the beautiful typewriter as part of the 2012 West Prize competition, an annual art prize that’s determined by popular vote. The keys on the vintage 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter have each been replaced with a different pad of color to give some rather interesting results!
Pulled beef tacos with homemade slaw. I modified both recipes from Smitten Kitchen. For the pulled beef, I seared just under 2 lbs of a beef roast, used one small can of tomato paste instead of the crushed tomatoes, substituted brown sugar for the molasses, and threw in a tomato and chicken bouillon cube, in addition to the cumin, coriander, and chili powder. Cooked in the crock pot for 8 hours on LOW.
The slaw was very simple: cabbage, apples, and red onion tossed with veganaise and apple cider vinegar. Seasoned with pepper, salt, and old bay.
