In like a lion….March 2, 2012 at 7:00 am | Posted in Dinner, Entertainment, Travels | 2 Comments
This week went by very fast! Much faster than last week… who knows why about that. I kept myself busy with a bit of exercising, finalizing lots of loose ends at work, but lots of reading. Lots and lots of reading. I got to enjoy the leftovers from said chicken dinner and mentally feast on these two books. First up was Blood, Bones & Butter. I think I found the recommendation for this book in Food and Wine magazine a month ago. I was so happy to find it at my local Frederick library. And after starting it on Monday, I finished it by Wednesday morning! The chef chronicles her crazy childhood, an even crazier teenage years and an awesome trip that leads her to open up her own restaurant in NYC. She also marries an Italian and the chapters of her describing lavish Italian feasts in the summer in Italy made by little old grandmothers was just awesome. Pick it up if you are so inclined, lots of good food “porn” and she is a great writer. The next one I started is Steve Job’s biography, loaned to me by Abuelito. That one, if you haven’t seen it, is a pretty large volume, so I’m betting it takes me a week! We will see!
So last night I made an awesome greek meal with my favorite ladies from Frederick, Virginia and Kendra! I took some iPhone photos, so wait for those next week and apparently I am being treated to a nice dinner tonight by the fellow in the lovely state of Virginia, so that should be a great time!
I have a cute outfit picked out for tonight and it matches with my sparkly kind of nautical looking nails.
I leave you with these two songs. First one just makes me want to go dancing.
Next one just makes me want to fall in love.
