What have I been up to lately?

Other than reading Norwegian fantasy novels?

Laura and I threw a joint birthday party and it was really fun, at least I thought so.

Julie thought so too, I've never seen her do so many keg stands!

Also,I had a bazillion friends visit this week and Roomie flew in from New York and surprised me at work, which made me feel like this:

And I ate the most delicious (sustainably raised!)sandwich I have had all year. Spit roasted Porchetta with pickled cabbage, house made dijon and pepper-cress, served with a side of pickled onions.

And of course... LOST.

It's almost MARCH!

I am so behind on my blogging...

get it?

Cute overload.

So I talk all the time about how babies make me incredibly uncomfortable (which they do) but that doesn't mean I am immune to cute things.
Yesterday not one, but TWO of these creatures came into the store and I was so overcome with cute that I had to sit down.

You really have to see them in person, these google images don't do them justice, I couldn't stop squealing.


I've been in something of a weird holding pattern lately. I'll spare you the details because I don't think anybody gives a shit, but I have developed a few new fixations this winter while trying to get over my one big fixation.

1. Hot toddies. Why did I take me so long to get into them? It's tea...with booze in it! If you take the time to stud the lemon with cloves: perfection.
2. Kale. A superfood. Ive started eating it every day and boy am I regular, let me tell you.
3. Yoga. I never thought I would say it, but thank you Taylor and Yoga to the People (

These actually sound like rather moderate fixations, healthy even. I should probably mention that I've also turned into a total burnout this month, but lets focus on the positive, ok people?

Hangover Breakfast

Sometimes I wake up hungover, hungry, and broke.
I'm sure nobody out there can relate to that.
Anyway, yesterday I woke up in that exact predicament a half an hour before I had to be at work and made the perfect hangover breakfast using the contents of my refrigerator.

I diced up half a sausage and sauteed it in a pan with a shallot, threw in a handful of leftover spaghetti, cracked an egg over the top and stir fried it all together before adding a generous amount of shredded cheese. Then I topped it with lots and lots of hot sauce.

Power breakfast.
