1. Last night I felt like a little caterer last night. My mom was going to a dinner party and she wanted to bring radish toasts with her. So she bought a baguette, and I got to work. I created two plates of these:
Apparently they were a big hit. I would love to cook for a living. But I think I will stick with my day job, which I am excited to get back to in a week or so.
2. Is there a West Wing re-hap place out there somewhere? I feel like I need to kick my West Wing re-run habit. I an on Season Six, and I do not know what I will do when I am through the entire series. There is nothing I love more than the West Wing. I would not have gotten through the last several weeks of bed rest without my trusty West Wing dvds (I have all seven seasons).
There was something else I was going to tell you, but now I can’t remember what it is.
3. I went on another walk today. 33 minutes. I was on the phone with one of my friends while I was walking and the she drove right by me, it was pretty funny. Then not five minutes later another one of my friends drove by me. It made me laugh.
I have really enjoyed getting out for my walks the last three days. It makes me feel more alive. I almost feel like I can feel the very beginnings of spring around me while I walk. I hope so!
I have a couple of books on their way to me on Alice Waters. I can’t wait to read them and share them with you!
Food today: I had oatmeal at 9 o’clock this morning. In the mix: 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup 1% milk, 1/3 cup water. I added a small palmful of raisins, and topped the oats with 1/2 a teaspoon of brown sugar and a teaspoon of peanut butter. It kept me going until 1:30 this afternoon! Lunch was an egg and a piece of baguette. I’ll have a snack of cherry tomatoes later, and tonight will be last night’s dinner all over. I wonder if it will be better today..? I’ll let you know what happens!
