Sometimes I wish I had more time (both actual time and mental time) to write blog posts as often as I used to in the past. But then I remember that my job takes up much more time (both actual time and mental time) than it used to and that I can only do so much.
Maybe one day, though, I can get back to writing more than my 2-3 posts a week. I’m hoping to get a Friday Favorites post together for this Friday but I haven’t even started it yet. Maybe once my son is settled into college (OMG), I will find a new routine. I kinda have a lot going on (aside from work) in terms of thinking about/preparing for my baby starting college in two weeks, finishing the dorm shopping/organizing, and then there’s my personal life which is directly affected by the world news.
Cava just opened near me so of course, I had to try it. While I still need to figure out what “my combo” will be, so far I’ve had it twice and liked it.
I do like that you get so many choices of hummus and toppings at Cava. Although, with so many choices, I already ended up choosing so many items that I’m not quite sure what I was tasting.
I’m not sure if I was taking a picture of my Chopt salad below or my pretty Stoney Clover woven pouch.
I went back to the lemon tahini dressing in place of the tzatziki that I had been ordering for a while.
Wasn’t I just saying that my go-to dinner at home lately is a salad with a baked potato? Like literally, this is dinner if I’m eating at home. I’m rotating between sweet potatoes one night and regular baked potatoes the next. This is what I call cooking. Baking a potato and making a salad. My salads lately contain:
- mini persian cucumbers
- feta cheese
- balsamic dressing
I met my parents at The Cheesecake Factory for dinner the other night. For a minute there, I questioned if I should order a veggie burger. Anyone who knows me knows that I get the same salad for over twenty years and only recently, started to maybe order the vegan cobb on occasion.
That alone was enough of a switch. I’m just not ready to order a veggie burger because, if I’m being honest, twenty years ago I once ordered something other than a salad at The Cheesecake Factory and I didn’t like it and wanted to do dinner over again. While I’m not as nutty as I was then, I don’t forget how I felt that night and I just can’t take a risk like that just yet. Yes, I know I sound insane and although I’m being funny by still referencing that story from the past, I’m just not ready to order something completely different at The Cheesecake Factory!
I never say no to Linda’s Fudge Cake.
Remember when they changed Linda’s Fudge Cake? I barely remember the old version either but I wrote a post about it and it’s still a popular search result.
