Ever go on a cooking hiatus? We’ve been on a bit of an unexpected one this week. I’ve had yearly planning meetings at work, and what I thought would be the perfect amount of food (you know, based on those standard FDA portion sizes) ended up being wishful thinking. The portion sizes were HUGE, leaving us with tons of leftovers. My boss and I have been splitting them up, and for the whole of this week we’ve subsided on two tubs of fruit and mixed greens salad.
I feel like I’ve been on a surprise detox, and I have to tell you, I feel GREAT! Sure, I’m getting a little burnt out on salad greens, but the fruit can keep on keepin’ on as far as I’m concerned. I could do this all the time, although I am very much missing our kitchen adventures. We’ll be back this weekend, promise – with bread!
How was your Valentine’s Day? Ours was fairly low key. We had work all day, then took Clive for a long car ride, ordered our favorite pizza and watched Inception. Have you seen it? We thought it was pretty awesome, though not as good as all the hype made it out to be. I think I was expecting more twists and turns in the plot? What did you think?
My V-Day/early birthday gift from Neil: A new Nook Color! I’ve been completely obsessed with downsizing my enormous book collection (see just a piece of it here) in preparation to move, and I think this is the perfect way to do it without sacrificing my book fetish. I’m finally going to read the Harry Potter Series, among a ton of other books. They all feel right at my fingertips, I feel so powerful! Okay, maybe not. But I will be beyond happy if I didn’t have to move all those books again.
