Just Some Stuff

The flowers Matt gave me, though they have lasted a surprisingly long time, are slowly fading. I’m glad I at least have pictures.
I am currently planning a gift list of my own, which I wrote on my dry erase board in the kitchen. I’m posting it here because I am fairly certain that none of my family members read or even know about this blog. The only person’s gift I kept a secret was Matt’s, but he took the liberty to write down some suggestions.
Personally I think he’s a very lucky boy because I have been cooking dinner for him all week. I’ve been experimenting with new recipes. The other night I tried one that I got on a flier in the mail. And let me tell you it was TERRIBLE. It even smelled bad. I don’t really understand why. It looked really good in the picture. It was this chicken corbread blue cheese salad thing. Matt didn’t like it. I didn’t like it. Very disappointing. I didn’t want to waste all the food I bought to make it so I’ve been eating it for lunch at work and it still isn’t any better. Actually it might even be worse since it’s cold. Pity.
The next thing I made was better. It involved chopping up a lot of veggies. They looked pretty, though.
The recipe didn’t call for meat but I added some anyway, because my man is definitely not a vegetarian. And neither am I, for that matter. There was supposed to be rice in it too but I forgot it until everything else was almost done. Oops.
I also made a lemon cake. It’s really good. And Matt’s favorite of everything I made (too bad it was the easiest thing to make). We put whipped cream on it. I wish I had some fresh berries but they’ve gone up in price quite a bit since the warmer months. I might end up getting some anyway, though.
Tonight I tried Mexican pizza. It was ok. I think I let the dough rise for too long. This morning before work I took one of these out of the freezer.
And I came home to this.
Yeah, maybe just a little too much rising action there.
In other news, the mountains got a lot of snow. They looked really cool this afternoon.
That’s the view from my apartment. I like living here, even if it is about 11 degrees right now and my nose is going like a marathon runner.
