was feeling creative on sunday
my first sport injury! a pathetic swollen ankle.
spent the latter part of my evening reducing pomegranate juice to a pomegranate molasses. first time ever trying to reduce something. turned out okay, but happy that i did it :]
tomorrow’s menu: pomegranate glazed quail… stay tuned (the marinade smells DELICIOUS)
first, people wait hours in line for an in-and-out burger, and then they wait for hours to get into H&M. really? that burger is just a dime a dozen and those clothes you’re wanting to buy will shred the first time you stick it in the wash.
i know i am being quite judgmental in this post. i’m fine with it.
the one bad thing about being at home on a day off… i cannot stop eating. good thing i don’t keep an abundance of snack food in the house.
i tried out thomas keller’s baked beets and it was delicious. i didn’t really know how to plate it as it kept slipping around and i didn’t want to stain my clothes haha.
after consuming this whole beet, a few hours later i did pee a startlingly shade of red.
g and i are watching 17 again (yay zac efron!). there’s a scene in the movie where zac efron (who has been changed back to his 17 year old self) is waving hi to his daughter, who is now the “same” age as him.
daughter: why is the new kid waving at me?
daughter’s friend: i don’t know… but if he was an apple… he’d be a delicious
g and i chuckle to ourselves (amidst squealing from me) and g turns to me.
g: if you were an apple… you’d be a granny smith!
o: … -.- …
for the first time in a very long time, joks got together for a meal. we went out to marquee grill, which is celebrity chef tre wilcox‘s restaurant. we had many things to celebrate. love (ew), jobs, birthdays… life. i get really cheesy with them now but it’s disgusting so i’ll stop and show you a picture instead.
the best part was when tre chatted with jessi:
tre: ooh, where did you go to get some sun?
jessi: *confused, then slowly understands*… oh… it’s just alcohol.
then we celebrated jessi’s birthday by splurging at target for her IRC kids and getting them all the back to school items they could want. i forgot how fun it is shopping for school supplies. :] and hopefully, it will make them feel like little celebrities in their new life.
