Local Lamb Flatbreads (& presents)

There’s a coworker I used to have (and friend I still have) who has this uncanny ability to get gifts. While working with her for two years I saw countless customers and coworkers bring her trinkets and tokens and treasures. “Just because.”

Because they knew her, knew what she liked and loved and what she would gladly and humbly accept. In fact, I did this quite often. I’d see something while I was out and about and go “This is so Bunny!” then happily reveal it to her during one of our shifts. Or hide it in her mailbox.

Even though I used to partake in the gift giving (and quite frequently at that), I also used to feel a twinge of jealousy every time she’d display her newest present and wonder, “How does that happen?!”

Thursday Things

Natural Hickory Hardwood Floor

  1. Is this not the most gorgeous floor you’ve ever seen?! Natural hickory – so soft and smooth and downright delightful. Even if it did take 8.5 hours to install ½ of it. But! We’re almost done!
  2. I’ve made the vision board, I’m signing up for free classes/tutorials, I’m saying my mantras. Let’s do the damn thing.
  3. This may sound crazy (ok, it does sound crazy), but doesn’t coffee taste different in different mugs? I have my favorite that I think make my cups of java taste the best and some that taste blah. You know?
  4. There’s a Mean Girls Cookbook!
  5. Spyro is being rereleased! This is the only video game I ever spent a decent amount of time playing. My sisters and I would sit in our shared room on our bunkbeds and take turns flying that little purple dragon around. Oh, the memories!
  6. Edgar will be Yoda for Halloween this year, but I’ll be damned if he’s not going to be Spyro next year! The resemblance is uncanny.
  7. Pinterest is really and truly boggling my mind. There aren’t blanket categories to look under anymore and if you search one item that’s all you see in your feed for the next three weeks and why do they have to constantly change things that are perfectly ok. I miss the original version. Oy.
  8. Arriving to the party hella late but Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat is my new favorite Netflix show! I’ve only watched “Fat” and part of “Salt” but I’m in awe, jaw on the floor the entire time. Truly magical, y’all.

Balsamic Honey Chicken with Roasted Fall Veggies

We need a quick dinner tonight.

Balsamic Honey Chicken

One that’s easy and filling and warm and comforting.

Also, one that’s full of veggies. Because I haven’t been drinking my green drink as much lately now that it’s cold. Which is weird considering I have had it nearly every day for the last two years. But now? I don’t want it.

Balsamic Honey Chicken

But I do want this meal! I’ve actually made it four times in the last two weeks. It’s that good. I like it that much. And it reheats so wonderfully that I can make it at the beginning of the workweek and take leftovers all week to make my coworkers jealous.
