I had forgotten how nice it is to work on a beautiful campus. The weather has been wonderful and I've been having my lunch outside everyday at the Brochstein Pavilion. Here is a picture of where I sit and a picture of one of the many beautiful sculptures on the Rice campus. This sculpture "Mirror" is by Jaume Plensa.

These are not my pictures.

Last night Cameron and I had dinner with an old friend of mine from the MFAH. He is also Cameron's teacher at Glassell, a nice coincidence. I hadn't seen him in probably 20 years and we had a good time catching up and reminiscing about all the fun we had working together so many years ago. After dinner at Baba Yega, Cameron and I went to The Chocolate Bar and had some wonderful ice cream.

Dinner and Photography

Last night Cameron and I went out to eat at Pasha where he took these pictures. Then we went to an photography exhibit "The Ground on Which I Stand : A Photographic Essay and Oral Histories from Tamina, A Freedman's Town" at the Rice Media Center, part of FotoFest Houston.

Here are some pictures of the delicious lunch I shared with Cameron's family at Nippon. After lunch we went to the ballet. It's so nice having weekends off.

Quinoa Mushroom Kale Recipe

Here is my latest quinoa dish. I made this one up so it doesn't have a name.

1 C. quinoa (2 cups cooked)
1 bunch lacinato kale
1 onion chopped
1 container of mushrooms sliced or chopped
several cloves of garlic, minced
Bragg Liquid Aminos (soy sauce alternative)
olive oil

Saute onion, mushrooms, and garlic in olive oil. When the onions are clear add the kale which has been torn into medium size pieces (stems removed) Continue sauteing until the kale cooks down but not too long.
Cook the quinoa in water with some Bragg Liquid Amino. I used 1/8 of a cup last night but you could use a little more or add some to the dish after cooking to taste. When the quinoa is ready just mix it all together for a super healthy meal. I made enough to have it for dinner all week.
