Who loves her new dishes?

I do!

Dinner last night was the other half of my out-of-this-world caramelized onion and goat cheese pizza:


And dessert was a pile of strawberries, blood orange pieces, and fresh pineapple topped with 1/4 cup of plain Oikos, nutmeg, and unsweetened coconut (with 1/2 of a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie from the freezer bag):


New plate love:


There may have also been some Hershey’s spears dipped in cashew-almond butter:


And some crumbs from the Passover sponge cake I made:


I just got back from the gym where I did the same workout as Wednesday so that I will soon be running pain-free with hip adductors of steel. Stats: 1 hour 28 minutes, 416 calories, 114 average heart rate, 172 max.

I am now patiently awaiting the arrival of my sister Emily. She took an overnight
flight from San Francisco and should be here momentarily. I haven’t seen her in over a year! She’s coming for the weekend in honor of her best friend’s birthday, but her trip sadly coincides with me needing to get a bus at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning to head up to MA for Passover with mom and Easter with dad. But we’ve got all day today to visit, yay!

Are you going to see any long-lost family members this weekend?

Win pistachios!

    That pizza. Yum. Goat cheese? Major Yum.

    I am going to see some long lost fam members this weekend – but because of Easter, ironically. More because I’m visiting with some old pals for a bridal shower 🙂

    I’m sort of seeing long-lost family this weekend. I’m going to a seder on Sunday (untraditional, I know) and my parents will be there. They live in the same city as me but I don’t see them very often. I haven’t seen my mom in probably a few months (ah…families) so that sorta counts?

    I’ll be spending the weekend with friends, and I’m looking forward to it. I’m hoping to see my parents in June. They were supposed to come for a visit in March, but they had an ice storm that threw things off track in a major way.

    I love your stoop dishes! I’ve gotten several things from a similar system in my apartment building, and, hopefully some of my stuff has found its way into a good home as well. My mother is always stopping to pick things up from the side of the road and I think it runs in the family. 🙂

    Have a great weekend with your family and plenty of safe travels!
