I feel like the primary purpose of this post is to let my parents know that I am alive and well. Hi, Madre and Pop!!
Confession #1: I’m going to brag about the salmon and meatloaf I made at work on Friday. Even though I could only have small bites of each for quality control, I have decided that this was possibly the best salmon I’ve ever made and the best (also, the first and only) meatloaf I’ve ever made. Both of them had Trader Joe’s whole grain dijon mustard in it, FYI.
For the salmon: Season with salt and pepper. Rub a crap ton of the mustard + a good drizzle of honey all over. Top with a few dill sprigs. Bake at 425F for 12 minutes.
And I used this meatloaf recipe!
the salmon looks burnt and the meatloaf looks average, but I promise they were so good! the mustard was all sweet and crispy on the salmon 😀
Confession #2: I almost lost my voice screaming at my first BU hockey game of the season. I hadn’t been to a game in almost a year, so it was great to be back in the “dog pound” cheering on our Terriers!
we won against University of Maine 4-1 *high fives*
Confession #3: I’ve made more Irish friends during one week in Boston than I did in 3.5 months in Ireland. There’s an exchange student from Ireland who frequents the Catholic Center, so now I have a total of ONE [native] Irish friend who is my age.
Confession #4: I wanted to go to the gym at least once this weekend, but I never did. I’m pretty okay with it though.
Confession #5: I did do some interesting non-gym things like grooving to throwback songs with friends, running (!?), working out by the river at my favorite place, doing Blogilates that made our crooked floor boards creak, stretching while studying gross anatomy, and trying slider exercises with a paper plate!
Confession #6: Also instead of the gym, I did fun things like make/eat pancakes and watch The Office with my pals Ben and Rachel 🙂
humungous banana and oreo pancakes
Confession #7: I ate at P.F. Changs (aka fake Asian food) and loved it.
also we were starving, so anything tasted good // too hungry to eat it with chopsticks because that takes too much time #dontdowhatido
‘Twas for my girl Domenica’s birthday (21!!!! check that sake in a wine glass). It was mighty fun hanging out with all these beautiful women!
Confession #8: I ate chocolate cake and thoroughly enjoyed it. I can no longer say that I don’t like chocolate, I’ve just accepted it. It’s still not my favorite, and I wouldn’t order chocolate things, but I don’t dislike it.
we got two “Great Wall of Chocolate” cakes to celebrate, and I was all about it
Confession #9: I ate carrot cake before lunch to celebrate my friend Louis’ birthday the next day. So many birthdays this weekend!
“Like the liturgically significant candles?” – our friend, Pat, who made the cake
Confession #10: I don’t like to spend more than 10 minutes on dinner.
Confession #11: Megan shared one of her chocolate pudding cups with me last night for dessert, and it was blissful. You bet I added peanut butter to that thing.
Confession #12: I’m procrastinating getting my laundry out of the dryer, but I’ll go do that now.
Confession #13: I actually did go to confession this weekend.
Also, here’s a random picture of a breakfast that I ate, because I took the photo and the lighting was decent, and yogurt bowls tend to look aesthetically pleasing.
Hope you have a marvelous Monday!
So tell me:
Two things you did this weekend!
What is the best thing you’ve cooked recently?
Did you watch any sports this weekend?
