Hello hello. I really wanted to add sprinkles to the vegan cake batter blondies I made over the weekend but I was feeling extra uppity about all the weird food dyes in standard store sprinkles so I ordered these India Tree jimmies on Amazon and they arrived just in time for the blondies to already be done so they went straight into my smoothie instead. More important than discovering sprinkles dyed with beets and turmeric and such was discovering that sprinkles are sometimes referred to as “jimmies”. This brings me extreme joy.
Here’s what else happened over the weekend.
The Punch Room
Friday night I got to pop into a media preview of the new “speakeasy” bar at The Ritz. I love it because it’s small and quiet and the drinks aren’t sweet and gross. They have an extensive cocktail and punch menu but you can also just say something like “I’m in the mood for something… citrus-y!” and they’ll make you a signature drink. That’s so cool, right?
We Went Out!
Sound the alarm: Nick and I went out and drank alcohol on a Saturday night. This is such a rare occurrence, I actually texted him “I hate beer and socializing” on my way to meet up with the group. It’s not that I hate people and drinking so much as I LOVE being alone and not drinking. Can’t fault me for that. But we did have a delightful night hopping from Triple C to Bang Bang Burgers and Jackalope Jack’s. We still decided that’s enough socializing for at least the rest of the winter though. Phew.
I hit up Yoga One not once but twice over the weekend and that felt just great. Favorite teacher quote: “Yoga is not a civil act. It is a revolt against your normal consistencies.” Preach.
That was my weekend. How was yours?
