Bites of My Life

Last week was a mix of busy activities, parties and birthday dinners as well as cozy nights in, movie marathons and early bedtimes. Kicked off the week with my company Christmas party. I work with such a fun group of people to celebrate with, including Santa. Ate and drank at a few new restaurants (OKC's best kept secret, for the moment). Welcomed the first snow of the season, a Thunder win, and a movie marathon on the couch while bitter cold temps hung out outside. 

Countdown to Christmas can officially begin. I can't believe I'm saying that. I'm looking forward to hopefully a busy week, then a slow weekend to really enjoy the holiday!

-Because it's not a holiday party without festive cookies. My fav.
-Santa Claus is coming to town, and company Christmas parties.
-Ditch the dishes, acorn squash becomes your bowl in last week's recipe post.
-Restaurant decor on point.
-The dreamiest european style cheese shop and bistro opened up in the neighborhood this week. Our experience had ups and downs, but if you are local please go visit En Croûte. Pronounced like this
-Breakfast for dinner because lazy and an effort to clean out the fridge. 
-Foodie friends are the best friends!
-Cozy tomato basil soup a la roomie was perfect for Sunday's high of 20 degrees...
-Trader Joe's Seafood Paella. YUP! (but I didn't eat the mussels, freaked me out too much sitting in a frozen bag for that long).
