-Santa's Workshop already started wrapping presents! Santa also buys his cute wrapping goods at Chirps and Cheers in their new Midtown location.
Today marks 80 "bites" post y'all. Eighty Mondays have gone by since I started writing Take A Bite. Despite whatever I should be doing that's usually more important, like studying for finals right now, I'd always rather choose putting time into my blog.
Take A Bite is like a like a best friend to me. I love having a place to express my weird thoughts, or sharing things I love, or posting what I cooked for dinner the night before, but most of all I love hearing when y'all love it too. When someone tells me they read TAB I usually first, blush, then second, get embarrassed, then last, realize how cool it is that someone actually takes the time to read my grammar-error filled posts.
This weekend I had a friend come up to me and say she reads TAB everyday. She gets to work, signs into her computer, first checks Cupcakes and Cashmere (respectably) then checks Take A Bite. To hear that someone reads Take A Bite as part of their morning routine, or uses my recipes to make dinner or a fun treat is kind of awing. It's just one of those things that I don't really believe people take the time to read, I just do it cause I love it. So thanks Meredith you pretty much made the rest of my year!
-Santa has also been making his own Christmas cards to give to those on the nice list!
-I stretched leftover Thanksgiving turkey all the way until last Thursday. A throw-whatever-you-have in-the-pot soup! Turkey veggie and chickpea soup it is!
-Mission: clean out the fridge before I go home for a month has begun. A tomato, spinach, and a little curry powder omelet for dinner!
-Molly knows me well and knew I'd love her mom's Christmas (Crack)er recipe! She sent over the recipe and I made up this Christmas crack for gameday. It was a hit and I'll definitely be making it again before the holidays.
-My other game day treat was Cookie Butter Rice Krispies! Both recipes will be posted later this week!
-My sweet señorita is about to leave me for a whole semester of studying abroad in Spain. I know she's going to be amazing, but is it selfish to say I need you to stay? Like actually need.
-Last OU game day as student...check!
Two tests and one presentation until Christmas break freedom!
