Lately, I’ve been redirecting the blog away from daily images of breakfast, lunch and dinner. Instead, I’m trying to focus more in ideas, recipes and other health related topics. By doing this, I hope to improve the quality of my posts while maintaining the quantity. Ambitious, I know…
I just hope you bear with me!
As part of this transition, I’m also instituting a new weekly segment called “Worth Talking About Wednesday.” Naturally, these posts will run on Wednesday and will look back on some of the things that I couldn’t get off my mind during the past week.
To kick this inaugural post off…
Graeter’s Ice Cream
Graeter’s is a Ohio original that I fell in love with while living near Columbus. Back in the day, I was known to order an “1870 Classic Sundae,” which was composed of a chocolate bundt cake, hot fudge, ice cream, homemade whipped cream, nuts and a cherry…
Sadly, upon moving from Ohio, I thought my Graeter’s days were done. That was until last year when my grocery store began carrying commercial pints. I knew I had to get my hands on some, but the price is pretty steep. Finally, they went on sale this week, so I stocked up!
“Irresistible” is really right! I love the creaminess of the ice cream, but it’s the huge chocolate chunks that really make me swoon. I just have to practice a little moderation to deal with the nutritional splurge.
Peas and Thank You Cookbook
And, I should know… I’ve already made, like, half of the recipes.
My favorite yet is the chocolate silk pie, which I adapted by using my own pie crust recipe and topped with strawberries.
For what our garden lacks in size, it makes up for in quality. Seriously, I love the convenience of picking fresh herbs from our balcony. I also take a little extra pride in growing part of my meals.
I just can’t wait until Dan and I have more land so that we can try our green thumbs on fruits and veggies!
This goes without saying, but does bear repeating: I love my dog.
It’s fun to learn more and more about her personality, although I could do with her being less of a chair hog. The sad thing is that we continue to reward her for goofy ways… Look at her jungle of toys!
Yes, that is a lion, an elephant and a giraffe.
Going Back to School
It is seriously the beginning of the end. I can’t belive that I am a senior in college!
Similar to last semester, I have a cushy little schedule of just Tuesday/Thursday class. That doesn’t mean I’m taking it easy: I technically have four jobs!
Wish me luck!
Question: What do you think is worth talking about this week?
