Pad Kee Mao, Oscars Boycott, & Milton Avery


1 | 2

Happy Friday, all! How is that that we’ve only blinked and we’re already coming up on the last week of January??

Currently: Falling into the rhythm of 2016 while spending some time this week working through our targets for the year. It’s been so exciting to set more concrete goals individually and as a company and to start preparing for NSS 2016 - and business after!

This week, we’re…

Feasting on this simple Pad Kee Mao (translated to “Drunken Noodles”) recipe from Recipe Tin Eats. We love Thai food big time, but sometimes the slightly more obscure ingredients like star anise and tamarind paste keep us from making our own at home. This sweet & spicy Pad Kee Mao recipe only takes 15 minutes to make (!!) and calls for a short list of ingredients that can likely be found in your local grocery store (you may just have to pop into the “international” aisle for the oyster sauce). So yum.

Reflecting on the Oscars boycott and curious to see how things will unfold between now and February 28th. We’re following along as actors, directors, and producers continue to speak out on the lack of diversity in Hollywood. We love seeing all the red carpet looks, but it’s looking like the quintessential “who are you wearing tonight?” question will seem more superficial than ever in the thick of this tense cultural moment.

Inspired by the colors of Milton Avery’s work. It’s always a heart-grab moment when you come across an artist whose palette is still relevant, crossing time and place. The colors in his “Seated Figure” is the perfect combination of taupe and grapefruit making winter feel like summer for a quick minute.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends! And if you’re reading from the East Coast, stay warm and safe in the storm! We hope the snowfall makes for a cozy weekend indoors :)
