Hey cool dudez, I’ve got some news.
WE MOVED! Moved as in we packed all of our belongings up, gave a bunch of crap to the thrift store, and took the 17 hour mission that is moving from almost one end of California to the other with a moving truck that’s towing a car. Also included in that time is the parking lot gatorade bottle pee break and like 5 naps I had to take because I was running on no sleep and it was satan hot for half the drive.
Buuut now we’re officially residents of Southern California! Cerritos to be exact, which turns out is a nice in between for Los Angeles and Orange County and a nice place to go get boba at 1 in the morning and get your eyebrows threaded on almost every street for super cheap.
ps I got my eyebrows threaded for the first time last week and son. of. a. bitch. they better last forever.
Also in the newsroom: we added to the furbebe clan! Her name is Nomi, after showgirl nomi mallone, and she’s an aussie hound mix with huge floppy ears and cankles for days. She’s probably 3 times the size of the picture above now and she’s grown into her eyes and she’s just a fiery tornado of bitchy emotions and I hatelove it.
Now, let’s get to the draank!
When we were packing up the apartment I ran across a pound of strawberries in the fridge that were still magically fine, but not like, let’s eat them plain fine. One of my go-to’s for strawberries that are either a little too past their prime or not quite ripe is the good old roasting. It’s just 15 minutes in the oven so hopefully it doesn’t heat up the place too much, but in that time it softens then nicely and caramelizes the sugars a little to make them taste sort of jammy.
After they’re roasted you can add them to yogurt or ice cream orrrr blend them up with some lemonade, plus maybe add vodka if you’re me. I’m on a Simply Lemonade kick right now since I keep seeing it on sale for a couple bucks. It’s kind of a way better deal than buying overpriced lemons and squeezing them yourself, trust.
Go ahead and clink clink your friday, friends! I’m headed to Disneyland to hopefully not burn to a crisp and eat an overpriced churro.
