Oh, hello there, it’s been a while. Like a really long while. I haven’t posted because I’ve been so busy lounging around with no pants on eating nachos.
Short story: school and creative rut, the end. Just life happening, it’s all good. Besides that novel there were a few really great things happening:
Labor day brunch with my gurls Anna and Jen. I haven’t seen either one in what feels like forever and it was so good to just eat carbs and catch up.
A few weeks ago Steve and I went down to SF and I got to hang/eat dinner/shit shoot with my gurl Tracy. We had an awesome talk with good falafel then we walked around this crazy grocery store. It looked like this:
Tracy’s super awesome.
The other great thing involves the Joy the Baker Podcast and Mariah Carey. And a darechallenge. No big deal, I just SANG MARIAH CAREY’S FANTASY FOR EVERYONE’S EARS. Listen/don’t listen. But listen, and look for my photoshopping in the show notes.
Now that I’ve read you several short stories, we can slam down this grocery list:
First up is Tracy and some BREAKFAST TACOS that I need like a thousand of. (via Shutterbean)
Megan whipped up some lemon bars with a rosemary crust like it ain’t no thang. It’s a thang. (via Megabite)
Ashley went out and smashed some crispy kale between some tortillas with cheddar cheese and I WANT ALL OF IT. (via edible perspective)
Izy made me pancakes for one/half if I’m eating because I am a pancake tornado vacuum. Also she topped them with a nice smack of melted chocolate. She just gets me. (via Top WIth Cinnamon)
Gab used the last of the season peaches for an amaretti crumble. I love a good crumble. I love a good crumble even more if there’s a giant scoop of ice cream on top. (via The Artful Desperado)
Erika’s got the drank covered with a gin and ginger cocktail that I want to drink right now. At 11am. (via Southern Souffle)
Joy went and read my mind and made garlic dill pickles. She just knew I needed to make those before I break up with summer. (via Joy the Baker)
I’m only mildly obsessed with these lamb pita burgers Adrianna made. Mildly obsessed equals about 30 of them for dinner. (via A Cozy Kitchen)
Jessica went all cool girl and PUT ENCHILADAS INSIDE BELL PEPPERS. I love it, obviously. (via How Sweet It Is)
The fine ladies over at Dinner Was Delicious made savory waffles for Leslie Knope and took pictures that make my face want to explode. So much goodness in one post. (via Dinner was Delicious)
Nicole has some mini cheddar herb popovers that I could eat an entire batch of. (via Dula Notes)
Jonathan made challah. Insert challah holla joke. Gurl gots a braid that could give Lara Croft a run for her money. (via The Candid Appetite)
To top it all off, literally, we’ve got VEGAN KAHLUA HOT FUDGE SAUCE from Dana. I want to put it on everything, including my face. (via Minimalist Baker)
For music this week, I’ve got a sort of older song that I hadn’t heard in a while until Gab put it on his latest Artfully Happy Playlist and I listened to it about 20 times. It’s the perfect song to end summer with and you can totally listen to it while rollerskating around with cutoffs, a la Mariah Carey In Fantasy.
