3-Day Weekend Wrap-Up

Friday night:
Exhausted from a long week at work. Drank some wine & watched Love in the Time of Cholera. Very good, by the way.

Spent the first half of the day making John's birthday cake (see previous post) & licking frosting out of the blender. Spent the second half of the day at book club with MK. Amazing food at book club. Someone brought Oreo truffles. OMG, best thing I've ever eaten. Left with two good books to read: Boomsday by Christopher Buckley & Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl. Very excited to read both.

Saturday night:
Had some friends over to celebrate John's birthday. Lots of snacking, cake eating & drinking with a little bit of John taking his shirt off thrown in for good measure. Good times. Good times...

John's birthday. Hung-over & sleep deprived, Sunday was kind of a wash. We did manage to pull ourselves together enough to eat a nice steak dinner at Fleming's. Then we went home & watched Paranormal Activity. This movie scared the crap out of me, & I'm not easy to scare. I'm now convinced there's a demon in our house, as evidenced by both of us waking up simultaneously on Sunday night mere seconds before our power went out. I'm still creeped out.

Yesterday was what my normal Sunday is like -housework, grocery store, etc. I did manage to make some headway on clearing out my TiVo. Also, I made this for dinner. I'm not sure if John liked it as much as I did, as it was sans meat, but I loved it. I didn't make the toasted cumin seed crema because I couldn't find cumin seeds at Publix & I didn't feel like going to a second store. I did use a little bit of light sour cream. I'll try the crema next time.
