Last Thursday Thoughts, let's do this. Let's get wild and crazy and change shit up in 2013!
Item one: it is SO.COLD. today. SOCOLD SOCOLD SOCOLD.
Today is the birthday of my lovely BFF Laura. Happy birthday Laura!
My OCD self was delighted to receive these organizational tools. I saw them on a blog (was it yours? let me know and I'll link you) and had to buy them from Lifes a Journal on Etsy. Don't worry, I bought them in 2012 so I haven't violated my personal spending freeze. One is for daily life, and I can track work and personal To Dos, what I'm eating, water I'm drinking, etc. The other one is a blog planner. Fabulosity.
With the holidays and my Grandmom dying, I had 11 days off in a row. Coming back to work yesterday wrecked me. Damn near killed me. I'm a creature of habit and I crave routine, so it'll be good to get back. As soon as I recover from New Year's Day. This was the first time I've worked on January 2 in eternity. At least eight years.
Some of the food from NYD:
Spicy sausage and cheese tarts 5. King's Hawaiian Rolls are a staple at our house
Pasta parmesan recipe:
1 lb pasta
Olive oil, garlic salt, salt, pepper
1.5 sticks butter
About 1/2 cup flour
1.5C parmesan cheese
Cook pasta. Drizzle with oil, season with salt, pepper, garlic salt.
Melt butter over medium. Whisk in flour. Add milk and stir thoroughly until thickened. Don’t let it boil. Remove and whisk in parmesan cheese. Pour over pasta and mix well. Add steamed broccoli and chicken (I baked my chicken and cut it up the day before). BOOM.
E-card of the week:
Next Thursday in this spot I'm trying something new, an It's not okay... post. That should be fun and snarky. Ciao!
