January 4: It’s the food

Posted in photo, recipe, to-do list by gwen on January 5, 2010

Today we made a menu for the week for the first time in ages, bought far fewer groceries than we usually do [planning! it works! who knew!], and for dinner made pizza [Chad has become THE best pizza maker ever, click through on the photo for what went on mine] and Brussels sprouts* [D swore she hates them but ended up picking the leftovers out of the pan. HA! It’s totally the bacon.] and it was soooooo good. Lousy picture but worth documenting nonetheless:

January 4: Pizza and Brussels sprouts

* I think lexica is the one who shared this recipe: cut the ends off the sprouts and halve, toss in oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then bake. I went the stovetop route because the oven was full of pizza, then I tossed in some chopped-up leftover bacon and cooked for a couple minutes.

And here are some of the trinkets I bought at the swap meet yesterday:

Also today I did another thing from my extremely detailed list of every single nook and cranny in this house that I am going to clean, sort, and purge the hell out of. One a day hopefully. Today was the cookbooks, got rid of a bag full. And I got my Yelp elite status for 2010 which means more awesome parties with free food and booze.

Tomorrow is:
– write and send cover letter [my first since 2000! what!]
– mail rent
– farmer’s market
– I might go to a happy hour meetup, or I might chicken out because I will only know one person there, but I am determined to meet new people, so I think I will go.

Wednesday is coffee with J.

This week is going well so far [*knock*], how’s yours?
