FUN: My old high-school friend Chris came to visit me this weekend.
NOT FUN: Chris brings me a bag of Easter-themed cookies. Her mom makes the most delicious cookies that everyone in my childhood would go crazy over--especially me. I haven't had one in years. It was so nice that she thought to bring some, but I couldn't eat one or I wouldn't be able to eat any desserts at my mom's house at Easter. That bummed me out--big time. (Dan ate one and claimed they weren't that good. He knows nothing. Then he ate another.)
FUN: Chris and I dine at the the festive Beyoglu restaurant where we ate very yummy Mediterrean food.
NOT FUN: ...which would have tasted much more yummier with a glass of wine.
FUN: Dan and I went to NJ on Saturday where my mom made freshly baked brownies (the best!) and had ice cream on hand.
NOT FUN: I watched Dan eat it while I cried on the inside.
FUN: Easter brunch with the family. After eating Polish Ham galore, I finally ate my brownie and ice cream treat of the week and man, it was excellent.
NOT FUN: I wanted another one, but instead watched Dan take seconds, third, fourths...until he experienced shoulder pain.
FUN: Yesterday at work we had a going-away party for a co-worker.
NOT FUN: Buttercup cupcakes. Are these people trying to kill me?
No, I don't spend every minute of my day thinking about food, but this week-end was particularly hard. If it makes anything better, I am number one in both of Basketball March Madness pools.
Last week of March--gotta finish strong!
Me and Chris at the Natural History Museum.
Easter brunch: Lots of Polish Ham.
