This week was busy and crazy and all sorts of fall asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. But come check out my favorite moments.
I finally properly organized my jewelry. Properly being relative because the reason I waited so long was due to the fact that I wanted some sort of super cute and fancy crafty solution. Turns out, nails in the wall sufficed just fine.
Hubs laughing it up with his best friends during the fantasy football draft that they held via googlehangout. Each boy lives in a different state. But it was awesome to hear "It's like you're right here! We should do this more often." Yay technology.
First day of school (aka work). I've decided this year to work a bit harder on my personal presentation. Aka project try not to look like a middle school student. I've been pleasantly surprised with how much more put together I actually feel every day.
The end of the month is usually when I end up making my most creative dishes as I try to use up the last of the ingredients without having to go to the store before payday. This month? It was like a quadruple end of the month effect because we haven't been paid since May. Needless to say, tortilla chip encrusted tilapia and mexican street corn was probably one of my most successful end of the month creations. It definitely makes up for parmesan stuffed sweet potatoes we had a few months back...
And to use up the leftover grapefruit (the one that's only leftover because I haven't been able to muster the endurance to eat it in the mornings) we made grapefruit margs. Consensus? Delish. But definitely skipping the fancy sugar-salt-rim combo and sticking to just plain salt. Why tinker with a good thing?
I hope everyone else had an awesome week! I can't wait to go grocery shopping tonight!! There are a few things on my list that are solely to re-create some of my more "creative" dishes these past few weeks, and I love that! Three day weekend ahead, and first week of school solidly behind. What a success :]
