Good Things Tuesday October 9, 2012

Once again up early to get in that gym workout--almost forgot my fun Tuesday post.  I thought about this on my drive home across town; perhaps I should have been concentrating on what I was doing behind the wheel, hmmmm?

Here's what makes me smile this week:

1.  Pesto. So versatile, and made with my favorite herb: basil.  Making pesto chicken tonight for my sweetie:  pour pesto over chicken boobs, put in oven, and bake til done.  Easy.  Delicious.  No brainer. Roast some potatoes, add a veggie.  Oh--and a bottle of wine.  Perfect dinner for two.

2.  Gloomy days.  What can I say?  They make me feel cozy and comfy while I'm inside looking out.  And they make the Fall leaf color POP!

3.  Dried cranberries.  I went to Walmart and bought a giganto bag of them.  I will eat them in oatmeal, salads, and by the handful.  Sweet and tart.

4.  Pier-One candles.  Thank you for making Ember candles.  They smell like Fall without being sickly sweet.  

5.  The smell of freshly brewed coffee.  Ah....a childhood memory that always fills me with happiness.  One of the best smells on the planet!

6.  Kale.  I love you.  You taste good in soup and my tummy thanks you.

7.  My hair stylist, Sara.  She's awesome!  She knows my hair, is one with my hair, and controls my hair.  She is my hair guru.  

What's rocking your world this week?  


  1. I love pesto! And crandberries! AND KALE!!! (and coffee, duh...)
    Things rocking my world this week are pasta with pesto and kale (ha!) Tapering (YAY!!) Legit carb loading. And cooler running weather :-)

    1. That cooler weather makes running so much easier! And chow down, lady. Load those carbs. It's great to have an excuse :P

  2. DItto on the coffee and pesto and hairdresser. THe only thing that is going to rock my week is taking Friday off, followed by furlough MOnday, which will give me 4 glorious days away from the cookie factory. THat and working out obviously. :)

    1. a 4 day weekend! Lucky you. Keep swimming!

  3. Love good coffee and dried cranberries although they are horribly expensive here.

    What is rocking my world? Amazing friends and a ticket to the Pink Concert happening here next year.

    1. Mynx: I love love love pomegranates--but they are expensive here and only show up at this time of year for a few months.

      Pink! She is awesome. That will be one heck of a concert.

  4. I love Sara too! And that's why I only get my haircut twice a year when I come home...glad everything's going well!
