Day 13. Brunch with the birthday girl.

Today is my friend Krissy’s birthday. I became friends with Krissy in middle school and I’m happy to say that she’ll be one of my bridesmaids for my wedding. 🙂 We met up for brunch today at The Friendly Toast in Cambridge. I’m posting three photos in one post because I’m too lazy to make a separate post for my picture project. Here is my day 13 picture of the birthday girl with a mimosa and a cute bow shirt! This place definitely doesn’t skimp on the Mimosas! I wish I could have one, but still can’t drink because of my concussion.


I have two other photos I snapped while I was out. I took a picture of my eggs benedict with hollandaise sauce on the side. We both agreed that the  homefries here are pretty good. I thought the ham tasted a little too chewey, but still enjoyed my meal.


The last picture I’m posting from today is one I snapped while walking on the streets of Cambridge.


I think I’ll go do something productive like wash my hair.

Day8 – Homemade Indian food for dinner. I made ’em extra sloppy for yah.

Somerville is a low of 3 degrees today. Kraig and I woke up to frozen pipes in our bathroom this morning. Luckily, the water in our kitchen sink was still working. With a space heater on 99 and keeping the water on low in the bathroom, the pipes finally thawed out after 3-4 hours. Wahoo running water! It’s strange that this happened because we like to keep the heat jacked up in our apartment.

On to today’s picture of food. Again.  I basically cooked all afternoon following recipes from a food blog to make Roasted Garlic Naan, Baingan Bharta, and Channa Masala for dinner tonight. I made ’em extra sloppys for yah just the way yah like ’em.


I’ve been thinking a lot lately about this scene from Billy Madison and think it’s totally relatable for anyone with a job out of Office Space or one they just got laid off from. 🙂

Day 6 – Making Chicken Stock.

I don’t know if having too many instagram photos is bad for this project. So here’s the chicken stock I’m making today non-instagrammed.

It’s been a week since I got laid off and it hasn’t been that great. It’s a struggle dealing with all this crap with a concussion. I wish I would just get healed so I could at least work out or something. I took a very slow long walk yesterday and got a searing headache. Sorting through all the employer/insurance/unemployment information is bad enough, but having a foggy brain doesn’t help either. Back to square one basically.
