Flavor & Chew


Boy am I glad I don’t have to pack a suitcase and travel tomorrow! Weekend trips are a blast, but weekends at home are sooooo nice. I’m excited to just hang out with Matt and friends, and enjoy the warm Durham spring.

I’m four for four with headaches on Thursdays – I’m starting to think there’s something about my office (fluorescent lighting and no windows, stress?) that’s affecting me. I opted to take some medicine and a stroll outside and I felt much better. I wanted something quick for dinner though, so I sauteed some chicken and served it over a boxed Italian risotto. I wasn’t expecting this to be anything special, but it was amazing! It was piping hot and so full of flavor and chew. And now I have leftover chicken for tomorrow. Win-win.


When Matt got home, we decided an outing was in order and walked across the street to the wine bar. I just had a small pour of riesling to kick off the warm-weather white-wine season. T’was so refreshing!


I think a House Hunters may be in order and then I’m off to bed. Matt’s still on Indian time and literally keeps falling asleep in his school work – it’s pretty funny to watch. For once, he’s been going to bed before me. HA.

Happy Weekend.

    I used to get headaches on the weekends in college-I blame it on stress from the week and also sitting in uncomfortable chairs in class and work every day. A chiropractor or massage might do the trick! I hope you feel better!

      I’ve thought about a chiropractor before – did you have any luck with either of those?

      I love Excedrin too! It’s a Vince Camuto dress I found at Loehmanns!

    I love your dress!!! So pretty. I defiantly think that the bright lights could be bothing you. Hopefully getting outside and having some fresh air helped. I am horrible and taking medicine as soon as I feel a headache coming on.. Excedrin migraine usually does the trick 🙂

    Bummer about the headaches :/ I’ve noticed that my whole body aches after a stressful week at work [head, joints, stomach]… But it’s Friday and that means the weekend is right around the corner- enjoy 😀

    I’ve definitely noticed that my headaches more often than not fall on Thursdays too. I wonder if it is caused by my birth control pills, due to the cyclic nature.
