What a week. I started a new job (same organization, just a new position). I decided waking up with the sun is way better than waking up with my alarm clock. I decided drinking a full glass of water before I get my day started pumps me up way more than a mug full of coffee. (No offense coffee, I still need you.) I decided to let my body be my guide and take my icky cough as a sign it’s not time to get back to running…yet.
I decided, after my making my mother’s meat sauce, that watching people smile as they eat my food might be better than hugs. Here’s some food I’m wishing I was making, thinking of making, or will be making for myself and others this weekend…
- This seasonal ingredient map from Epicurious is helping me survive the last doldrums of winter. I want color at my farmers market! Vibrancy! Energy! I want…less…cold!!
- The weekend has me very (I mean, very) excited about an overdue mani/pedi trip with My Charlotte. But I’m thinking some eggs in purgatory over potatoes and artichokes might be necessary too.
- If I can’t find some people to feed a dish that large I might fall back on making these ham and cheese palmiers – which, if I switch it up with prosciutto and Gruyère, will mimic my favorite morning snack from Dolcezza Gelato!
- Pasta with roasted cauliflower, chick peas and ricotta sounds like the easiest dinner ever. I think I’ll make that for Scott tonight.
What did you decide this week?
