Thoughts from a Thursday


1. I think the reintroduction of caffeine has thrown off my brain. I’ve felt quite strange lately.


2. Another Christmas party, another awesome winter beer. Fall and winter beers are the best.

3. Tonight was a Davidson gathering – it’s always nice to reconnect and meet new alum.

4. I snacked on a pulled pork sandwich and some awesome pimento cheese for dinner.


5. I had to pack 154 FexEx boxes at work today because my work study student didn’t show up. Thank goodness for the kind people in my office who helped.

6. Matt is finished with exams, and when I left him this morning, he was sleeping with a big grin on his face. Maybe we’ll hang out.

7. Christmas meal planning has begun. Give me a savory recipe that I absolutely must try.

8. All I want for Christmas is sleep. And warmth.

    You MUST try Thomas Keller’s Leek Bread Pudding recipe- it’s savory and delicious- kind of like a cross between quiche and stuffing. AMAZING for a side dish or breakfast.

    Mmm, a Honey Baked Ham always steals the spotlight at our Christmas dinner 😀
