The Future Islands Letterman performance. Are they still new? Perhaps not, but it’s difficult to listen to it just once. It’s that good on this little screen, and I’m sure they’re even better live.

Things Because They’re Tasty - Lobster Rolls and Chips

For my birthday this year (and yes, this post is incredibly late), S made lobster rolls! The picture doesn’t do it justice, but they were delicious. He also made sweet potato chips to accompany the rolls, and it’s definitely something I think we could replicate again. Cooking at home is great. 

Things Just Because

Possibly the best Easter egg out there. Happy Friday!

Things Just Because

Is this a good idea? According to Mashable, KFC is bringing the Double Down back on April 21. The sandwich certainly received plenty of attention the first time it launched, but I wonder if it’ll still be as popular this time around. Maybe in eating competitions or for stunt value on the Facebooks/Instas/etc.

Would you eat it?

Things Because They’re Tasty - Japchae

I realize it looks like a bowl of veggies, but I swear there are noodles under there! Not just any, but the thin, nearly clear sweet potato noodles I’ve come to love of Korean cooking. The rest was a mix of sautéed shiitake, celery, peppers, and onions. Served with a side of kimchi and pickled cucumbers, it was the perfect dinner.

One day, I WILL learn how to make this. Will it be as good as my mom’s gumbo? No, probably not. But it won’t stop me from trying!

"Unlike most families, we have gumbo at Thanksgiving rather than a massive turkey. It’s a tradition we’ve kept running for years, and as soon as I learn how to make it, one that I hope to continue for many more to come.”

Things Because They’re Tasty - Kale & Goat Cheese Pie

Kale and goat cheese pie for dinner never disappoints. 

The last version had sausage in it, but this was a totally veggie version, and I would happily make it again.
