The past few weeks have been chaotic. So many papers and assignments and applications and meetings. And let’s not forget that from March 21-24, Nordstrom had Triple Points. But really, what’s been keeping me from writing was the other stuff (I’m great at blogging and shopping. Can I go to grad school for that?)
Mostly, I’ve been feeling like this:
Luckily, I’ve sprinkled a few fun moments in the mix.
For instance, inspired by Lauren’s Quest, I made my my own quest on the hunt for Pliny the Younger.
After waiting for about an hour and a half (the things I do for love…) I finally obtained the hop bomb of my dreams.
Did I mention that this all happened at 11 am on a Monday? Nothing like a little day drinking to start a week off right….
I also celebrated the first day of Spring the only way I knew how.
Rita’s. I am so sorry if you don’t know exactly what I’m talking about.
The day AFTER the first day of spring, it snowed. Go figure.
I’ve also been getting back on my cheese game. God bless the year of cheese.
Evalon from LaClare is an incredible goat cheese from Wisconsin that I paired with a dessert wine with some of my buddies last night. Fairly firm, this award winning cheese is almost like a hybrid between a gouda and an Asiago cheese. I bet it would shred well, but instead, we just ate it in chunks like the animals we are. On rice crackers.
Other than cheese, I’ve been wolfing pizza and thai food down like a champ. Jumping from meeting to meeting doesn’t always leave the most time for cooking at home. So, this morning, in order to clear my system and start Easter weekend fresh, I hauled my sleepy butt over to Pure Fare for a Green Pineapple Ginger smoothie. And a little calm from the chaos.
I’m not a very religious lady, but I can already see this is going to be a Good Friday.
