I hope everyone had a fairly productive Monday. I honestly cannot fathom that last week at this time I was here (although why I ever thought it was a good idea to wear a white shirt wine tasting, I still don’t know and I still have the stains to prove it….)
Time sure does fly, no?
Anyways, I was fairly productive today. I snacked on a yogurt before meeting Sarah
for coffee, which ended up being an hour and a half girl chat session. I’m very excited because I’m joining the women’s bible study at our church with Sarah, since our Esther study
ended last Spring and I need another. Its every other Monday night and consists of about 12 young women from church; I need the fellowship!
At Starbucks I had a tall soy Awake tea latte but they forgot the sugar syrup. I probably should have had something but I really didn’t care.
My mom got me this book on SF today! I can’t WAIT for my big race in October!!! I seriously have California fever, and for some reason have this obsession with San Francisco. I’ve only been to the airport (and across the bridge) but I love it already. I’ve had a strange fascination with SF since I was a little girl actually (random, I know), and I even have a framed picture of downtown in my bathroom. 🙂
As for dinner, I ended up cooking since my mom was working. I made buffalo shrimp
again from the latest issue of Gourmet
. Of course the chef needs wine! This was a delightful glass of Cabernet from Argentina ( + a few Kashi crackers hehe).
Hot sauce and butter make up the buffalo sauce for the shrimp and let me tell you, its freakin’ fabulous. I don’t have the recipe (its at my parent’s house) but I’m sure you can find it online. My mom made this killer homemade blue cheese sauce for dipping and it was heaven on a plate.
My plate with grape tomatoes, ‘cado slices, shrimpies, celery and sauce! mmmmmm
But of course I busted out my favorite cookies on earth for dessert!
One cookie and I am instantly transported back to my tiny Parisian kitchen, flipping omelets, drinking red wine and eating cold Petit Ecolier cookies straight from the fridge. Those were the days!!
I’m off to take an extremely long bubble bath and then catch up on MORE emails! I promise I’m getting there…slowly but surely! Have a wonderful night, folks 🙂
