Oh my gosh I am still so tired, daylight savings time, curse you! So my bar of soap always breaks in half near the end of its life and it dries up and gets all scaly and crusty... does anyone else ever have this problem?? I do not really want to rub this scratchy thing anywhere This weekend Jill and I went out with another friend to celebrate his birthday. We went to a little dessert bar and got chocolate fondue and listened to live music and played Rochesterhills-opoly. It was pretty fun. I made yummy sweet potato fries and crispy chickpea bites again Jill got Becks' hair cut, or shorn as I like to say since he is like a little lamb afterwards. I think he's kinda ugly the first few days until his lion mane grows back. The best part is that he feels so silky and luxurious to pet afterwards. I made this delicious chocolate cake for my mom's bday, I made coconut whip cream (fail) and strawberries to go on top, and went up to my parents house. We had a nice dinner together and watched The Way. That movie was so good, and really made me want to hike the trail. I met a couple on our Peru trip who had hiked it, and it sounded really cool. Maybe someday... I finished up one semester on Monday (A!) and started a new one today. I feel like I say this everytime, but this one is supposed to be the one that a lot of people fail out of, so I am nervous. I already had this teacher before and she would give us an assignment and then leave class to work on her doctoral homework while we taught ourselves from the book. So hopefully she'll give this class more attention! Sadly the Bachelor is over. It was good times watching with my friend groups this season. I still was a little surprised that for being so 'Christian' when he was on the Bachelorette, that there was barely any talk of God on his season. Altho my friend Liz said that 'Christian Bachelor' probably wouldn't get as many viewers as 'half-drunk, 50shades of grey, hot tub bachelor' which is the norm. And she made some joke about ABC telling Sean "only one God reference per episode". Anyway, it's so tv, but I love watching it all the same. Can't wait for the Bachelorette! (altho I wish it was Lindsey) Tonight I made Chicken Enchilada Pasta, yummy (I know I should probably use up this onion, but I love watching it grow!) Peppers and onions sauteing Chopping cooked chicken Becks was very happy to eat the chicken parts I deemed veiny or otherwise unappealing Simma down now. Simmering with the enchilada sauces, cheese and sour cream The final product topped with a dab more sour cream and sliced avocado. Super good.
