Um. Guilty.


OOOOOooo I want one! — Tanya


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.


Sigh. Oh’s is my fave cereal. — Tanya

thedailyfeed: Did you know Froot Loops is more than 40% sugar? And it’s not even the worst! A new study says you’re better off eating chocolate chip cookies for breakfast than these cereals

Pretty adorable and available here.

Awwww, who could eat this? No, really, who could eat this? What is Elmo Animal made of? Why is there ketchup with this? — Tanya

UPDATE: Thanks to all the folks who pointed out my Elmo/Animal mixup. And for telling me that is caramel, which makes more sense than ketchup. IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW! — Tanya
