Holiday Weekend Round-Up

Friday Night:
  • Hot date with the boyfriend - Margaritas and Mexican food
  • Dog Whisperer - Yeah, it's formulaic, but I can't get enough.
  • Asleep on the couch
  • Apple-pecan pancakes w/ hot vanilla-bean, pecan maple syrup - YUM! The vanilla bean & toasted pecans added to the hot maple syrup were an afterthought, an afterthought straight from heaven.
  • Comatose on the couch all. day. long.
  • Catching up on NPR podcasts
  • Homemade meatballs w/ penne and tomato sauce and a caesar salad
  • Work for a few hours, where I was discovered by some students and answered tons of questions
  • Run into Kelly and my sister while grocery shopping
  • Throw a bunch of veggies, herbs and some whole chickens into my new stock pot
  • Chicken & veggie stew
  • Dogs that Changed the World - fascinating!
  • Missing Angela. Bad
  • Cheese grits
  • Child of the Jungle - I got this because it takes place in West Papua, where a student of mine from last term was from. Recommended reading!
  • Feeding the fire all day long
  • More NPR podcasts
  • Packing boxes
  • Triple-chocolate Fudge Brownies and latt├ęs
  • I imagine the South Caroline debates are in my near future
Can I have one more day? Please?

That all sounded lovely EXCEPT for the packing boxes.

Mmm. Apple pecan pancakes. Vanilla bean pecan maple syrup. That sounds soooo good.

Those pancakes were divine. Can you tell I'm getting ready to swear of sugar (yet again)? This is the binge before the purge.

ps- I'm now craving those pancakes for lunch!

The world is a better place with cheese grits. And although the South is mecca for them... the best place I've ever had cheese grits was in NYC. Really.
