What I eat

Sunday: Really good New England Clam Chowder, but the question is: Did it make me sick? I got very nauseous afterwards, but Chris ate just as much as I did and he did not. In short I took a pregnancy test and I think it's a stomach flu.

Monday -aka- Tonight: Spam Fried Rice, if I can get my act together.

Tuesday: Pasta with Cauliflower, Garlic and Anchovies. I love anchovies with pasta.

Wednesday: Steak

Thursday: Hot dogs. Chris wants. I don't ask. I get to have baked beans with it though, my fave.

Friday: I am hoping we can go out for Indian, at least take out. We'll see.

Saturday: Guests over for a BBQ lunch. I think I'm going to do yogurt cumin chicken kebabs, maybe some burgers. I'm also doing Macho Nachos. Not sure what else yet.

Dinner Lately

Has been a bit of a toss up.

Sunday: Zucchini Frittata using a recipe Jenni gave me. It was very yummy and very fast. It probably would have been better

Monday: I did a simplified version of this Ground Gyros Platter. It was pretty tasty.

Tuesday: Linguine with White Clam Sauce turned into cappellini with white clam sauce. It was pretty good, but I think I'm Clam Sauced out.

Wednesday: Sausage with Rice.

Thursday: Chick Fil A. The chipotle is not opening until April 25, we found out.

Friday: I believe we are having ramen noodles with egg today. What culinary adventures await us next week?? Stay tuned to find out. Or see you in a month. Whatever floats my boat.

Movies I've watched (a lot on airplanes)
Becoming Jane At first I hated this. Then I liked it. In the end, I only like James McEvoy more and Anne Hathaway less.
Juno I'm sorry y'all. Overrated.
Atonement Cried.
Namesake Cried.
Elizabeth: The Golden Age Eh.
Paris, Je'Taime Cried.

Shows I'm Watching
Top Chef-who to root for...hmm, I just don't know. I think I like Richard Blais. One, his restaurant is called "Trail-Blais." It's in Atlanta, so I just have a preference there. And he LOVES Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory in an authentic way. That's charming. I hate his hair, and his arrogance and it's quite likely he didn't have many friends in elementary school, but I am rooting for him.

Battlestar-It's BACK baby. If you are not making time in your life to watch this show, then I'm sorry, but your life is a little less rich than it could be.

Real Housewives of New York City-I hate all the wives in this one, but especially Alex. My favorite is the Countess that used to be a model.

Lost-Still loving it.

Books I'm Reading or Have Read
Margaret Atwood-Moral Disorder
Geraldine Brooks-March
Philippa Gregory-Boleyn Inheritance


Was gorgeous, cold, very successful.

Watching dubbed Super Sweet 16 on French television.
Running into Jan at the Tibetan restaurant in Amsterdam.
The ladies in the Red Light District leaning out of their windows to gossip with eachother.
Snow falling over the canals.
Climbing up an insane number of stairs in Notre Dame for a windy but gorgeous view, only to realize that in order to get to the "top" we must climb, yes, even more stairs.
Musee de Orsay
The basement of the Louvre
Napoleon's Rooms
Sparkly Eiffel Tower
"Chitterling" Sausage
De Bakkerswinkel
Karamel Stroopwaffels
Millais at the Van Gogh


Is sitting up.
Is eating solids.
Is grabbing for everything.
Is communicating more.
Is turning into a toddler.
