Friday Randomness

April 22, 2011

Thank you all for the birthday wishes to my sister.  She even made an appearance in the comment section for maybe the second time in my blog’s life.  Exciting stuff, I tell you.

She proudly boasted that she didn’t eat a meal at home all day.  I certainly contributed to that by buying her lunch at our new favorite Thai restaurant near campus.

And dinner was at The Med.  Because it’s delicious and because the happy hour menu can’t be beat.  Okay, it probably can.  What do I know about happy hours anyways?  Not much, not much.

Anyways, I digress.  The happy hour didn’t disappoint.  Or maybe that’s the white sangria talking.


I realize I’m holding a margarita in this picture (and that the flash is exaggerating my ghostly complexion), but I assure you I took one sip and passed it on to my dad.  The sangria is better anyways Smile with tongue out

Note my dad grabbing a deviled egg in the back of this picture.  That pretty much sums up how patient my dad is.


Shrimp (in garlic, lime and olive oil), olives, roasted red pepper hummus (that I wasn’t impressed with), caprese salad, polenta and the afore mentioned deviled eggs.

All were delicious, although I think those shrimps took the cake.  Or I’m just obsessed with shrimp.

I got the vegetarian paella for dinner.  I’ve never had paella before and although I can’t really tell you what the difference between paella and risotto is I still thought it was delicious.  So delicious that when my dad eyed my plate and asked “Are you all done?” I made a shield with my hands and said “Yes and I’m taking the rest home!!”


I’m very protective of my leftovers.


The night was rounded out with some sugar in the form of Boulder Baked cupcakes.

Although I’d heard of Boulder Baked and tasted a cookie once, I’d never been into the bakery.  I was pleasantly surprised at how many cupcakes they had to offer (gluten-free and vegan included).  All of which had been made fresh that day, or at least I assume that’s what they were doing all day considering the bakery didn’t open until 4:30 PM.  It’s owned by a brother and sister and all the recipes are from their mother.  I’m a fan of family recipes. 

P.S. My sister is a little red head now.  Doesn’t it look fab?


Vegan chocolate banana with peanut butter frosting for me and vegan and gluten-free pumpkin spice for the birthday girl.  Both were great!

Now it’s officially the weekend and although that should bring some joy to me, I’m feeling tired and out of it today.  I think working 8 hours on Tuesday and sleeping a mere 4 hours that night has finally caught up with me.  Or I’m depressed that I have to buckle down for this upcoming last week of school, or just that it’s the last week of school…

Who likes school?  Uh yeah, that would be me.

Also, Fridays aren’t my favorite day of the school week.  My schedule forces me to eat lunch early with means I have to eat a light breakfast and cereal just bores me.


Or at least this cereal bowl bores me.

And I was tempted to eat Joey’s cupcake (which I brought back to him from the birthday celebration and he put straight into the fridge instead of his mouth, weirdo alert!!).


Strawberry Shortcake


Instead I just photographed it.

And accidentally stuck my finger in the frosting.


Shhh, don’t tell!

I’m off to trivia.  Happy Friday, friends Smile
