Hockey Haiku, Teaching One Too

Posted by Peder on 23 October 2008

This first one goes out to Jacques Lemaire, who couldn’t have been happy with tonight’s result.

Not back on defense,
Soft goals, no forecheck, dumb kids.
It’s not good ‘ockey.

Next I have one about teaching:

Teachers and students
don’t know how much they don’t know
about the others.

Pollack à la Peder

Posted by Peder on 23 October 2008

My lunch today was great.  Had some pollack fillets and veggies that I needed to finish up.  So I breaded the pollack in panko bread crumbs with Parmesan cheese, cumin, curry, cinnamon, chili pepper and crushed red peppers.  I sauteed them in a mix of veggie oil, sesame oil, oyster sauce, and minced garlic.  Once they got started cooking I added onions, leeks, and bell peppers.  On the side I chopped some cucumbers and let them sit in Worcester and soy sauces.  Pollack à la Peder!

Family Weekend

Posted by Peder on 23 October 2008

Last weekend I was with my mom’s side of the family in Fargo, ND celebrating my grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary.  (They’ve been married longer than most people I know have been alive.  Wow.)  It was the first time I had been to Fargo since my cousin’s graduation in the spring of 2005. More importantly it was the first time in longer than that we had gotten the whole family together (minus cousin-in-law and proud papa Brandon, who’s with the Air Force in the Middle East.) Most importantly it was the first time I met little McKenzie Jane, my cousin once removed and the newest member of our clan.  In three days she’ll be six months old.  Here are a few pictures, but you can find a larger set on my Flickr account.
