> cheese and black pepper soda bread
omg share recipe please. Also, this weekend I roasted vegetables too. YUM.
It’s always interesting to hear about classic gender roles and feminism. When I was at home for a while, to watch my parents act out a very familiar script was frustrating at first and I wanted to avoid the same things. But later I realized that doing things like cooking or cleaning as a woman does not make one a traitor to feminism. Saying that would be like saying learning German is like being a Nazi sympathizer!
Sounds like you are busy and having a good time. Hurrah for extracurriculars!]]>
i am so amazed by all your ethnic cooking whirlwind action! my mom has always been the italian / classic american food buff, so i’ve learned to tweak my marinara and to make a meatloaf you need heels to eat. But, i’ve always wanted to learn how to make the more indian / southeast asian fair. i’m stuck rolling summer rolls with my wet hands. hahaha.
It sounds like life is good and i’m glad. and i would also like to applaud your political gender bending while not being afriad to take on aspects of classic gender rolls. All too often people i know (read: militant lesbians) are so afraid of succumbing to the “male hegemony” and refuse to do anything remotely femme. Which i think is kind of ridiculous, because you reject all this, to project a stereotypical male gender (and i don’t believe this whole because i’m a woman it’s different bullshit. if you’re going to try to fuck the dichotomy at least do it right). Anyway, before i fill my head with all these gender politics, make sure you’re studying and not secretly baking goodies! by the by, can you give me the recipe for your cheese and pepper soda bread?! i’m on a bread-baking marathon and would love to attempt some new stuff!]]>
