So... last last Friday afternoon, I got an early dismissal from my mum.
We made a deal that, if I got out (it sounds like I'm in prison or something!), I would 1. make her lunch; 2. treat her to cocoa at Ginger Elizabeth. How could she refuse : )
Home before noon! And the only exciting part of school that day? Learning about Fungi!!! When I saw that it was on the AP Bio agenda, gah I was so ready to listen to the lecture. Fungi is so amazing... why can't my future college offer a mycology minor. I would be so for that.
So I was in a day long dilemma on whether to cook savory or sweet pancakes, and I finally caved and went for savory. Using Heidi's cottage pancakes (recipe found here), I proceeded to make the fluffiest, loveliest Friday afternoon
Too the hair salon! Can you believe that, prior to Friday, I had not had a hair cut since late June!?! I got just about 2 inches cut off and it looks and feels so much healthier now. I read bon appetit! magazine while my mom got her hair cut. Unfortunately I was cramming, trying to absorb as much magazine juice before we left for our next destination.
Ginger Elizabeth. Oh Yes.
|European Sippin' Cocoa|
I am a big fan of dark chocolate, and scoff at any bar claiming to be dark and being under 70%. The darkest I have had was 85%. (Though I did find a 90% cocoa (!!!) bar at Whole Foods, but could not justify paying $7 for about 2 oz... but my birthday is coming)
Mom and I ordered the same thing, like mother like daughter :) And we also bought a chocolate chip cookie, but I never actually ate any of it since I was so satisfied with my beverage.
Post saturating our taste buds in happiness, we briefly went thrifting, then to the Co Op! (can I just live at that place please?) to buy cocoa, and nut butters, and greens!
T'was a wonderful Friday, spent with a wonderful Mum. Cheer's to the weekend ahead friends!
and I am happy to be back in blogging mode :)
