See those flowers? They’re dead now. I need to get some more.

Apparently a perk of working at a coffee shop is sometimes customers give you three large bunches of flowers. And a tip.

It makes up for the self entitled asshats that stroll through.

I was actually really stoked to utilize the vases that I’ve been hoarding from Target clearance sales, but now with all the flowers I realized white tulips are kind of perfection. I need to figure out where to grab those affordably. Treat yo’ self.

This past week for food has involved this buttermilk skillet cake, pizza, and pizza. I call that the almost end of the semester working late meal plan. AEOTSWLMPBRBLOLOMG.

Here’s what might happen this next week:

IRISH NACHOS. Let’s make some nachos out of potatoes and add sausage and use irish cheese. I could do one twirl and Steve will have devoured the entire pan. (via a new favorite: The Candid Apetite)

I’ve been searching forever for a legit peanut butter cookie. I think Cindy’s created that. BOOM. (via Hungry Girl Por Vida)

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I WILL EAT ALMOST ANY PIZZA. Megan made one with cornbread crust. It says single lady but I read four bite pizza for anyone that’s not a lady. That’s me. And that should be my lunch one of these days. (via Take a Megabite)

Um, speaking of pizza, Joy and Tracy Boom Boom Pow’d some french bread pizzas. Yes please.

For breakfast I might have to eat an entire loaf of this. Espresso and banana  and chocolate?! Shut up. (via xo breakfast)

I like Thai food. I like loaded baked potatoes. Nicole combined the two of them for me. I do not like sweet potatoes, but she assured me the regular russet tastes just as good. And that peanut sauce sounds fantastic. (via Dula Notes)

Lastly, I’m also feeling this crazy fast pea pesto business. Dinner in 30 min? I might have to add that to  the AEOTSWLMPBRBOMGLOL.

For music this week I guess I kind of have old news? I love Tegan and Sara and realized I hadn’t put up any music off their new album, which is fantastic. They performed at the New Now Next awards and it made me want to go listen to this song like a thousand times. Again.

Also, total kitchen music. Make anything and listen to this song.

    I love the metallic/bronzey? vase…and white tulips are perfect in it. Also, when peonies are in season and not a billion dollars, white ones would be AMAZING in there.

    and…megan’s cornbread pizza is the business! I’ve made it twice and loved it both times.

    thanks for the love!

      YES! I would love some banana espresso bread at work as long as the person wasn’t super creepy. and yes to skillet cake and tegan or sara’s hair, as long as you don’t mean a skillet cake made out of tegan or sara’s hair.

    I’m crazy about Tegan & Sara, those two know how to turn anything into a dance party.

    And I love Nate Berkus too! That arrow rug, puh-leaze! So good.

    Thanks for the pizza love! Now I’m thinking I should dessert remix that guy.
