this week i…

January 14, 2011

1. Came home from my first yoga class in months, damn sore and tired, and ate an unholy amount of St. Andre triple cream cheese for dinner. I took crackers and just swiped huge dollops of it. Who needs a knife when your cheese is like soft butter?

2. Tried to quiet my incessant need to plan trips and travel…and failed. Potential trips coming up this year to San Francisco, Portland (Oregon and Maine!), Detroit, New York, Chicago, and England if I can possibly manage it.

3. Ate tater tots for dinner. Yeah, that happened.

4. Had breakfast at French Meadow Bakery and swore I’ll have breakfast out in the week more often. So much more peaceful, warm and wonderful than at the weekend.

5. Had too many veggie burgers and salads for lunch. I need to make some soup!

6. Caught up with two of my best friends on the phone – one in England; one in Vancouver – and made plans to see both of them within the next 7 months. Happy dance.

7. Spent time oohing and ahhing over photos on three of my favourite blogs: The Little Red House, Hither and Thither, and La Buena Vida.

8. Saw True Grit and loved it.

9. Brainstormed baking projects for the weekend. I’ve missed baking something chronic these past few weeks and I’m excited to get back in my kitchen. Any suggestions are welcome in the comments!

Your turn! This week you…

This week I finished a great book (the book thief), ate a lot of tofu, lost my blogging partner so therefore, making some changes to the blog, and will end it with dinner at Barrio!

baked a bunch of cupcakes. experienced highs and lows at work, ultimately ending in a high. struggled through a nasty cold. persevered. split a bottle of wine with an old friend. went to sleep at 9:30 one night, and midnight the next.

Oww! Great trips. I have always wanted to go to Portland, Oregon. I almost ate pop chips for dinner last night. I was hungry and didn’t feel like making ANYTHING. I did put some scrambled eggs together. If I had tots…I probably would have gone with them ;) This week I am excited for the weekend :) Its restaurant week in Charleston!

hahah these made me laugh. Eating a ton of cheese (something I would do)

I need to make travel plans to the Caribbean for a week of fun in the sun. But got totally frustrated at how much money it will cost us and got discouraged.

Tried to make my first film of cooking soup, failed bc my hand is in the way and didn’t shoot the right angle. Realized that B&W are not good colors for making soup eck.

But I made soup and it tasted delicious!

Feeling totally blah bc the weather is complete crap and I am forcing myself to go out with the girls tonight though all I want to do is sit in bed and watch telly and play angry birds. hahaha
