Mixed Signals

Happy Saturday, Kittens!

The Universe has been sending me mixed signals today.  I woke up with a mini-breakout (WTH?  Change of seasons?  Stress?) and found out that Macy’s is no longer stocking the sterling we registered for.

Given that this is the THIRD pattern we’ve been through in as many months (it is seriously emotionally wrenching to try and identify with so many different patterns), I’m just done with it all.  I know this is totally a first-world problem, but is it so much to ask for some nice, formal flatware?

Apparently yes.  It is.

But we move forward.

Leah is in from out-of-town for a few days, so naturally I had to do a little bit of lunching today with her and Jillian at 3 Squares.  And because we had previously decided that we specifically wanted to go somewhere for lunch, we all ordered breakfast.

Just try to put me in the same room as a plate of Chilaquiles.  Only one of us wins, and it isn’t the food.

I dedicated the rest of the day to running some errands, looking after my mitts and paws (always a good choice when seeking Zen and Order) and actioning some baking.  Naturally because I’ve been craving cookies, I made a couple of loaves of bread, but that’s a story for next Friday.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll get in-touch with my sweet-tooth.  Or maybe I’ll just defrost a cupcake from the freezer.  Only time will tell.

What is paralysis: Trying to make meal planning happen when you’re pawing through 5 spices, 50 dishes, The Pleasures of Cooking for One, Nigella Kitchen, Forever Summer, and How to Cook Everything.

Thank you, Public Library system for making books so available to the masses.  It was really better for both of us when I didn’t know where in the non-fiction section the cookbooks were located.

Talk about a slippery slope.

Have you and The Universe been in-touch this weekend?

What’s your favorite breakfast food?

During the week, I’m all about the oats.  But give me a plate of Chilaquiles or Huevos Rancheros on the weekend and I am absolutely a goner.
