Anyone remember The Martha Stewart Show?
Or am I showing age? LOL!
Martha used to talk about “today’s good thing” on her show each day. My mom and I thought this was hilarious. So did Snoop.
This weekend I went shopping. Nothing fit. I can’t zip dresses over my back. It was not a fun trip… but I got what I wanted. I’m do want to keep growing and competing… but it’s still hard to swallow.
What does this have to do with today’s good thing? Nothing other than a) I got what I wanted and b) I’m focusing on good things today rather than wallowing.
Good Thing #1
The return of college football. And Tech won!!! If you are from the South, you know this is true:
Good Thing #2
Getting a hair cut/color from one of your oldest friends. When I go see Karen, It’s a 4-5 hour deal. I always bring snacks. White Chocolate Raspberry Quest bar is my favorite one to eat cold (not baked).
Good Thing #3
When we finished my hair, it was pouring and we were both hungry. The only logical decision was to grab a bite to eat and continue catching up. These mussels in saffron cream sauce were some of the best I’ve ever had. They were huge and meaty. #twss
Good Thing #4
I FINALLY broke down and bought a waffle maker. And I’m pissed and everyone for not tying me down and forcing me to buy one sooner!
For my first go, I made a peanut flour waffle with cherry compote and bacon sprinkles. I’m still perfecting it… but trust. The recipes will come
Good Thing #5
After the ill-fated shopping trip, I went to my comfort place: Whole Foods. It was there that I found the deliciousness below: Snacks on a Plane gelato from Honeysuckle. Tell me this isn’t the most genius name and flavor combo ever.
Good Thing #6
I did eat more than ice cream for dinner. While at Whole Paycheck, I picked up some grilled veggies. I cooked a piece of Haddock from Sizzlefish and ate it over a corn tortilla with the veggies, avocado, and bacon sprinkles.
Tip for the grill-less: Those grilled veggies are great re-crisped under the broiler.
Happy Labor Day! Hope everyone is having a marvelous, Labor-free day!
What your “good thing” today?
