25 Things About This Summer:

1. I made these guys.  Then I ate them, and life was good.  We’ll get back to them in a little bit.

2. I am almost finished catching up on all seven seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. In other words, I watch too much TV.

3. I wore a tux to work.  I felt like a penguin.

4. Gingie was spotted hiding on top of boxes of stock during a thunderstorm.  I ran to take a picture before consoling her.  Priorities.

5. I wake up at 4:50 in the morning for work. Yikes.

6. On my days off, I wake up at 6 am… without an alarm. Double yikes.

7. I can’t even tell you how many pots of coffee I’ve brewed this summer.

8. I’m 95% sure the coffee maker at work has a vendetta against me.  I’ve cleaned up overflowing coffee way too many times for there to be any other explanation (and yes, I do know how to brew a good pot of coffee).

9. Speaking of work, I spotted this gem in the parking lot.

10. I went to Michigan and ate at Zingerman’s Deli.  It was glorious.

11. My flight home from Michigan got cancelled. Typical.

12. I discovered this blog.  Genius.

13. Foodgawker overload.

14. I fell asleep on a pool float and didn’t get burned. Hallelujah!

15. Awkward flip-flop tan lines.

16. Cheese-balling it up at Niagara Falls!

Maid of Mist

17. I whipped up some Almond Butter Froyo with Amaretto Caramel Sauce.  Noms.

18. I made 3674569845769872305 supermarket trips… and I don’t particularly like going grocery shopping (weird, I know).

19. I exaggerated.

20. Olympic opening ceremony face dresses, say whaaaaaaaaaaaat?

21. Why were the Spice Girls not at the opening ceremonies?! #90skidprobs

22. I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge!

23. And once in Brooklyn, I ate at Bubby’s. Yay comfort food!

24. Every time TLC airs the previews for this show I cringe.

25. Air conditioning, I love you.

End random ramblings. Back to the eggplant rolls!

sandwiches galore!

I have news!  And sandwiches!

I recently joined the crew over at The Next Great Generation as a food writer!  I’m just getting started, but so far it’s given me the chance to explore the Boston food scene which is definitely exciting.

For my first post on the site, I decided to make three really simple but really delicious panini using five or less ingredients (salt, pepper, and butter or oil excluded).  Incidentally, I think these may very well be the first savory recipes I’m sharing.  Groundbreaking!

Check out these beauties:
