To put it lightly, I’ve been kind of bummed out lately. My foot is still hurt and I have self diagnosed myself with plantar fasciitis. It comes and goes, and is totally random, but when it hits, the pain is so bad I almost fall down. Yep, I can barely walk. So if you have any tips that would be helpful. I am taking my time and trying to stay off of it, but it’s hard when you live in a city and walk around a lot.
So to make myself feel better I decided to get started baking early on Friday, because baking makes everything better, right?
I decided to make Ashley’s Chocolate Graham Crackers because they didn’t seem too difficult and I could start eating them immediately.
The verdict is still out on these. They were good, don’t get me wrong, but mine didn’t turn out very “graham cracker-y.” And I think next time I would add a lot more sugar, mine weren’t very sweet. But they were still easy, and make a good snack.
We ordered it from Four Worlds Bakery in West Philly. They make AMAZING bread. I think it’s because they mill their own flour. Most of their bread is vegan, and you can order the challah bread without the egg wash!
Friday evening, Kelly hosted an event at a hair salon in our neighborhood. Cocktails and delicious food? I am totally in. The super awesome Josh played cocktail master for the evening, and made some dangerous green cocktails. They might have gone down a little too easy.
I wish we could have stayed a lot longer, but we had to head down to Olde City to meet up with one of my friends from high school who moved to Philly recently. I was sad to learn that Sugarmom’s doesn’t have $1 PBRs anymore, and instead I had to pay a whopping $2.50.
It was a late night where it felt like we did a lot, but in actuality we did absolutely nothing.
Saturday was spent running around the city trying to find a digital converter box for our TV. No place has them. Anyone out there have one you want to give us (or let us buy?). I hate going to all these electronic stores during holiday shopping. It sucked.
Luckily the dancing took place a block from our apartment, so I was able to head home early and call it a night.
By Sunday morning Eric and I were really low on food, so we decided to go out for lunch. Sketch Burger isn’t too far from our apartment, but not really close either. We somehow always forget about it, so I was excited to head there for lunch. It was a nice walk in some freezing weather, but it felt good to get out of the apartment.
We then packed ourselves up and headed to the suburbs! Our friends Ben and Michelle just bought their first house!
Whenever we leave the city we always try to figure out other things we can do as well. A new Whole Foods opened up a while ago, and I heard rumors that they had beer. Being able to buy beer in a normal place is a big deal around here, so I was really excited to check it out.
Groceries were also bought, and it was a lot cheaper than the Whole Foods in the city.
And to get you in the holiday spirit, here is a video our friend Juli made. I couldn’t figure out how to embed it, so just click on the link. You won’t be sorry.
