Lisa It’s Your Birthday, Happy Birthday Lisa

Deja Vu…

Y’all know Maggie Mac’s been sick A LOT lately. But yesterday I wound up going twice – and it was time to say goodbye forever.

We’ve been through a lot, Maggie and me.

(Julius loved her too)

As a refurbished computer, she had a lot of problems from the start, but kept me blogging away for a solid two years. Here we are on our last day together – at the Bend Airport:

Meet Maggie’s replacement – a brand new MacBookAir!!! (Always. Buy. Apple. Care.)

We have a tradition of naming our Apple products after Simpsons characters (my iPhone is “Monty“) so I’m calling her Lisa – the genius sister. And boy is she smart! She’s like a prodigy in comparison (sorry, Maggie, but it’s true).

Since Lisa doesn’t eat meat, dinner was old skool NYC vegetarian:

When we first graduated from Wesleyan, Abe and I used to dine at Dojo’s all the time – it was the only place we could afford to eat out at. For very little $$$ (I feel like under five bucks) you could get a Soy Burger Platter – with brown rice and a side salad with their infamous dressing.

There are many recipes to recreate it online; I took the easy way out and opened a bottle sent by Wafu

Wafu has many delicious-sounding flavors, but the only one I used for last night’s purposes was the Carrot Ginger

For the soy burger, I pan-fried a Chik’n GardenSteak

Abe’s was “traditional Dojo style” with the romaine on the side, and the patty atop the rice – smothered in dressing

Mine was served as a salad

Dojo’s dressing is a lot chunkier, but the Wafu definitely has the same flavor, in a smooth puree

Dinner was followed by the last Chocolate Goji Truffle, and lots of quality time with Lisa.

If you missed the post on Labor Day, I’ve got a $100 Joss and Main Giveaway going on right now!

    Congratulations on the new laptop. That is such a treat!

    I have a few choice names for my computer when it’s not working, but I did name my car!

    I used to love DOJO too. It was cheap and delicious! I went there a year ago just for that dressing and then came home and made it a bunch! Congrats on the new computer.

    i love how you name your apple stuff after simpsons characters. My boyfriend totally loves this idea since he is a hardcore simpsons fan. I generally name my bikes and cars….right now my bike is Hunter and he is a stud. All the lady bikes love him.
