This Week’s Small Pleasures


The week was pretty uneventful, no bad or good news but the weekend was all about good food and outdoor clothing. The things that made me happy this week were:

1. Going to visit my husband at work and finding out that I am famous amongst his co-workers from the work-lunches I make him.

2. Having an amazing dinner at an amazing Peruvian restaurant in Portland. It was just a bit more than we planned to spend on eating out that day but it was worth every penny.

3. Trader Joe’s run. My nearest Trader Joe’s is about 40 minutes away, so it is not often when I get to shop there but it’s my absolute favorite grocery store.

4. REI run. Hubby treated me to some needed hiking boots, rain jacket and wool long-sleeve shirt.

5. Homemade 2-hour bolognese sauce and pasta. Nothing like onion, garlic, carrot, celery, pancetta, veal, white wine, milk, thyme, salt and pepper coming together for the ultimate comfort pasta.

I definitely feel like I scored this weekend.
