Tried a new thing

yesterday and today.

Yesterday I made Cucumber-Tahini Open-face Sandwiches. I liked them a lot, but I didn't anticipate how much my roommates would like them as well, and that is why I'm sharing the recipe:

1 cucumber, thinly sliced (pick one from our garden!)
Ciabatta or french baguette, sliced
1/4 c. Tahini
2 Tbs. Rice vinegar
4 oz. mandarin oranges
Sunflower sprouts
2 tsp. white miso or Miso Mayo
1-2 Tbs. water

In a small bowl, whisk tahini, oranges, vinegar, miso, and water. Spread evenly on bread and top with cucumber and sprouts.

It's pretty wild, tangy, a little bitter, but mostly fresh and crisp.
Tip: put the sprouts on before the cucumber so that they stick to the spread and don't slide around. 
Tip 2: Miso Mayo is the best thing after Veganaise. I'm never going back.

Today I am trying a new hairdo. It is inspired by the Friendship Bread I am currently nursing. The directions for the bread warn that if I fail to keep a starter for the bread after distributing my friendship bread bags, then I will be permanently left without a starter and thus without friendship bread because the starter can only be acquired from the Amish, for they are the only ones who can produce this particular bread. Well today I pay my respects to the Amish and will cherish that starter. #thankgodfortheamish #friendshipbreadconcept #weird #yetmoistandsweet #notpc
