Rollers: I think they’re making a comeback. Not the tubular orange juice cans we used in the ’60′s (yes, that’s true). Not the prickly tin variety (ouch!). But hot rollers! The smartest people, in my sketchy, unreliable, limited survey, use rollers. In pink pouches, no less. And I thought they were passe. Not so. Hair will always be an issue. Too much. Too little. Too curly. Too straight. Too gray. Too thin.
“It probably doesn’t change much,” a friend (with rollers in her hair) told me lately. “But I’m going to try anyway.”
Go for it.
Rollers: on a roll
Want to eat more greens? Hate to waste food? Need a way to keep track of time? Subscribe to a local farmer’s farm box — as we do (The Back Forty Farm) — and all of the above will be resolved. Could it really be Wednesday again? Quick! Open the fridge, get some water boiling, find the sharp knife, extract a large bowl for a little washing, cut some garlic (good in everything), chop the bok choy, the tatsoi, the red and green mustards, cover the pot for a minute, sprinkle some tumeric and voila: lunch and a snack-before-the-Chanukah/latkes-party-before-Thanksgiving. Life is good. But you have to have the greens in your fridge. And you have to eat them. This week’s offering came with beets.
