On Deck

I was trying to decide yesterday, when it was 60-ish degrees, whether I would just prefer that temperature year round.  The problem is that I like wearing a winter coat and I just got a new one in November  or was it December, whatevs, and I really like it but have not been able to wear it much of the season since it has been like 50 degrees all winter.  I’m not complaining, I hate snow and super cold, and I really hate the heat, so I guess if it were to be 4 sets of seasons or just 60-ish degrees all year, I’d take 60.  No, this has little to do with anything, just typing out the random conversation I had with myself yesterday.

On another tangent, since I just put on my coat to go outside, and every time I stand up today, I am reminded that this skirt I am wearing is like 7 pounds, for realz, and it would really look better with my winter coat rather than my leather trench.  And I really should have set my hair today cause it would all look better, but it is raining anyhow and it’s better off that I didn’t set my hair.  So anyway, this skirt is ginormously poufy and heavy and it’s from All Saints because I still sometimes dress like I’m still a 15 year old goth/punk girl, but one who now has cash, yet my blacks still don’t match and they just cranked the heat in my office and so I had to take off my hooded sweatshirt that has a hole in the elbow and I need to patch because I can’t find another one that is fitted and thin and does not have any labels/brand names on it and my shirt black is not the same as my skirt black is my point – gah! Yuppie problems!  Moving on, I should just put on some Morrissey and curl up on the floor and work these yuppie problems out.

Or I could just move on.

So, I didn’t make most of my on-deck last week – I stuck to standards – Shrimp Sandwiches again, roasted veg and polenta, kale salads, stuff, and I am kinda at a loss this week.  Hopefully I will come up with something as I type this.  I did have one sorta new, but I did not take any photos – decided to turn  Pizza Party! into calzones.  The husband was sceptical as the last and only attempt at calzones was last summer.  With our new grill.  That was gas. That we kinda didn’t know how to use yet.  And I insisted we could plop the raw calzones direct on the grill, no stone or anything.  Yeah, it busted open and just major FAILED all over the grill interior.  Ever since, the husband has given me the side eye when I mentioned calzone.  But these were perfect and save some time.  I’ll add these to this week and pic. them.

Ok so this is what I am thinking:

Friday: we keep putting off going to dinner at Fat Radish – I can’t get a res tonight, but it is like around the corner from my bar, so the husband is going to to walk over and put our names down and we’ll see if they call us to get in.

Saturday:  We are going to a birthday party and I’m not sure if we will need to cook as they usually have an elaborate spread of homemade indian food – samosas and other goodness.

Sunday:  I saw this penne pasta with basil mint pesto that I want to try – I’ll add in some broccoli rabe.

Monday:  Roasted cauliflower fritatta that I found on a commenter’s blog, and will link back to when I find it.    Found it!!

Tuesday: I also saw this  – these peanut noodles which I will heavily change up because I think most of his recipes are kinda bland and I am going to use soba noodles instead and swap the peanuts for cashews.

Wednesday: Calzones

Thursday: Polenta with roasted eggplant and asparagus.

Ok – so I came up with some things to make.  And now since it is Friday I am thinking about this:

Madrid Balcony Chillaxing

I am also very pleased to have finally scored Pulp tickets after not being able to get the first time around, but they added another date and even though I forgot to go on at noon when they went on sale because my outlook calendar failed to pop up and remind me, I remembered at 2:3o and they were not moving so fast, probably because the scalpers couldn’t buy them all up as tix are for this day are only for will call with match ID.  Yay!
