I was never a jelly person growing up. And so, whenever Thanksgiving came around I was very confused by the cranberry sauce. It reminded me a heck of a lot like jelly and so I always passed.
The unofficial start to summer is only a couple weeks away. Two things immediately come to mind. First, it’s grilling season, baby!! Second, fresh and crunchy salads are my jam. Lately? I want something refreshing with a sweet and tangy taste that has that, “I need to eat this entire plate and grab some seconds” urgency about it.
So the craziest thing happened to me. Not craziest, just unexpected/fun/omg kinda thing. On Monday I got an email halfway through the day. It was an invite to a food tasting with Gwyneth Paltrow that night. Um, I HAD to go.
Thanksgiving is next up in the holiday lineup y’all and that means family gatherings are about to go down. I remember being in college and my eyes suddenly opened up to the fact that family gatherings and alcoholic beverages go hand in hand. And, in my opinion, make them way more fun 😉
This week has been unbearable for me. UNBEARABLE. I am soo sick. It’s that kind of sick that just. doesn’t. go. away. Sad face. Whimper. And I have these two sick kids and everyone is just so cranky, and feeling icky. I’m ready for next week to start so we can just press the reset button and start over again. Ok, bitch fest over.
