A few days in and my goals are going well!Posted: February 16, 2010
In the past few days I’ve made:
-pumpkin pancakes with chocolate chips ( billion of them, I made 6 batches last night and only realized today was Mardi Gras sometime around 2pm)
-couscous with roasted vegetables, kalamata olives and rosemary
-cauliflower, sweet potato and butternut squash soup
-cauliflower (it was on sale) filled macaroni and cheese (very sneaky, you can’t see it, not that anyone here minds)
I’ve been consistently reading 10 or more minutes per night. I finished a book over the weekend and was contemplating what to read next when I got an email from Jeff telling me that he left a couple of books (french ones!) in my mailbox! Hurray! So last night I started reading L’Étranger by Camus. I’m only a few pages in (2 hours of cooking pancakes really tired me out) but so far it’s going pretty well. The writing is very simple so it’s easy to follow and it will likely be good practice at acclimatizing me to the grammar.
I haven’t done any non-grocery shopping since my post but I have been thinking about locally owned places to shop. I was reminded of my recent shopping experience at Warren’s (a store that only has 3 locations – all in Ottawa so I ASSUME it’s local) I had such great service there (at two of the locations in fact) that I wanted to either call or send an email to their upper management. Well there website has NO such contact info!!! That’s very disappointing to me. I guess I could call the stores and try to get the info but what a hassle for praise!
ARTS AND CRAFTS
I cut Bobby’s valentines into hearts… that counts right?
