I’ve been craving chocolate peanut butter ice cream for weeks now. Weeks, I tell you! So, imagine my delight upon finding it at the grocery outlet yesterday. I grabbed the container and started to turn around when my butt ricocheted off the cart and threw me headlong into the freezer. At least it was valiant in its attempt. You’ll be glad to know, however, I remained stalwart in my mission, thus ensuring that quart of deliciousness made it into my cart, quite unharmed.
It’s the little things that make up the big ones. Obviously.
In other food related news, I made the most delectable sweet and sour sauce this week–so easy, too! That said, if Chinese food happens to be on the menu for the weekend: mix 1/3 cup rice vinegar, 4 Tablespoons of brown sugar, 1/2 Tablespoon chili paste, 1/2 Tablespoon ketchup, and 1 teaspoon of soy sauce in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Mix 2 teaspoons of cornstarch in 4 teaspoons of water, until dissolved. Stir together all ingredients.
Also, have you see Salmon Fishing in the Yemen? Better yet, have you read the book? I absolutely loved the first half of the movie–loved it. But upon final credits, I wasn’t quite sure what to think. There were too many improbabilities, even for me. And an extramarital affair. Not so much a fan. I’ve heard the book is a comedy; the movie is more dysfunctional charm. Sure, I know what you’re thinking–What, dysfunctional charm and it wasn’t your favorite movie ever? Trust me, no one could be more surprised than I.
Now, before this post gets any more out of sorts, I shall leave you with a quick wish: may the coming days bring nothing but goodness–sweet treats, meals to share, and a little something unexpected.
Happy weekend, my friends!
