This week we have:
Biscoff Crunch Banana Bread
Blueberry Muffin Cookies
Outside my window... It is DEFINITELY March! The weather is all over the place! We were supposed to get the "storm of the season" this weekend, 8-15 inches of snow and blizzard winds... instead we got slush. Bleck. Today it's been warm and sunny, cloudy and chilly, windy and still... The boys are very seasonally confused!
I am thinking...Thank GOODNESS for the internet!! My teeth (or lack thereof) were hurting terribly, and the medicine they packed them with was making me SO sick, so I looked it up on the good ole' WWW, and discovered that clove oil is the best thing in the whole world for tooth pain! I mean pain gone. And if you've had wisdom tooth pain, you know that nothing touches it!! Just had to pass that one on, because it was a serious lifesaver!
I am going... All over, the usual! Just two more weeks of serious business, then my schedule calms down a tad. Of course, once the training is over, then the rest of the adoption process begins. But it won't be scheduled... oh who am I kidding! Time to just get used to it! :)

I am hoping... I hope the swelling in my face goes down before my very first choir concert this weekend!! I can sing, kinda, and I won't miss it, but it will be MUCH more enjoyable without a puffy, sore face!
I am looking forward to... Honestly? Leftovers!! I'm having one of those days where I think about food from the minute I wake up, and I cannot WAIT for my chicken gyro tonight! I almost had one for lunch... but there isn't enough to have one for lunch AND dinner... so I must wait. Yeah, I'm going to have to make a new batch awfully soon. Like, this week. Maybe more than once.
Source: lookingforlovlinessSomething new about me... I have a tendency to go on "food phases". I pick something I really like (or have recently discovered) and eat it every day for weeks and weeks. And of course, I perfect it, and develop a scientific system for making them! Like when I made egg and cheese bagel sandwiches, to melt the cheese perfectly you put the pan you cooked your eggs in upside down over the top of the sandwich. Voila! Guacamole, very specific sandwiches, Vietnamese egg rolls, granola and greek yogurt with raspberries, ham and cheese omelettes... This usually isn't a bad thing, unless the thing I pick is on the less healthy end of the spectrum, like toasted cheddar cheese covered bagels and cream cheese... yeah, those can get you after a few days...
Guilty pleasures... Corn dogs with mustard. I know, how awful, right?? But a fresh-out-of-the-fryer corn dog with lots of mustard is one of those things I cannot resist. Luckily, I only get them a few times a year! Except for that one time they became a "food phase"... yeah, that didn't end pleasantly.
