This weekend I went to visit a friend for her birthday. And man did it feel good to get out of town.
It will full of manicures and ice cream, 90’s movies and girl talk. It was just what I needed.
Now that I am back in the rush of grad school life, the recipes are quick and easy. Ain’t nobody got time for crazy recipes that take an hour for prep and an hour to bake + a million ingredients. Ain’t nooo–body got time for that.
Except if it’s worth it or if it’s the weekend or something like that. But it’s not the weekend. It’s a Tuesday. And I’m sending an easy recipe your way.
Oh, also? Speaking of friends hanging out and doing awesome things? She decided to choose a focus for her blog, and started with the 365 days of pictures. And, because I’m a total copycat, I’m doing the same. Check it out on my Instagram.
