snow and sunshine

I have all kinds of random tidbits in my head that I want to share!

Yesterday it finally snowed! Yea! Snow! There wasn't much accumulation, but it was lovely to have snowflakes falling from the sky. A vast improvement over all the rain we've had lately. It definitely lifted my spirts. And today, sunshine! That lifts my spirts even more. (Perhaps the reason I am using so many exclamation points.) It's COLD, but with the sun, it's feels wonderful. An excellent day. I am hoping to get out of work early enough to make it to the library to pick up the books I requested. It's been too long since I've had new things to read.

Oh and also on the sunshine tip, we watched Little Miss Sunshine and we all LOVED it. It's the best movie I have seen in a long time. I always love Toni Collette, she's just so great. And Abigail Breslin, who plays Olive, the little girl, is AWESOME. We've been wanting to see the movie for awhile so I am glad we finally took the time to do it. It was an evening well spent.

Last night for dinner we had Red Pepper Ravioli from Groceria Italiana which was awesome. I prefer Groceria Italiana to Donatelli's these days because it is never as crowded and all the people there are super friendly. Plus the homemade pastas are to-die-for and they have a great selection of sauces. AND they have imported black olives (canned) that remind of the olives I used to buy in Spain. Yum.

To backtrack a little bit, on Monday I met Sheryl at Lot 17. We had beers, good conversation and salmon salads. I don't get to see Sherly often enough and so I love the time we do get to have together. She gave me the coolest cookbook ever! It's called Seduced by Bacon and it has the most amazing photos in it, not to mention the incredible sounding recipes! I can't wait to use it.

Okay, I must return to the work at hand. Happy Wednesday!

  1. I found my candy thermometer when I was going through the storage cupboard, so I can come over to make bacon toffee whenever you want.
