This weekend my team is headed for a big rugby tournament in Maryland, so I’ll be pretty busy! I hope to make it back in time to make a Southern Living dinner on Sunday, cross your fingers for me. Or as I learned in German today, press your thumb!
Yesterday was nasty weather, cold and rainy all day long. I also thought I lost my wallet (didn’t), temporarily lost my University card (kind samaritan found it), thought I failed a German test (the computer miscalculated), and found out I’ll be driving the big van to the tournament this weekend (not happy). So obviously I had to pull out the stops in personal pampering in order to cheer myself up.
Hello hot chocolate with extra whipped cream from Starbucks! Blaine says he thinks the barista was a rookie because it didn’t taste as creamy as previous hot chocolates, but I thought it hit the spot.
Next stop: Dunkin’ Donuts. Ever since they put in a Dunkin’ close to school, Blaine and I have been buying donuts like it’s our job. We’re not going to have these metabolisms forever, we gotta enjoy it! My personal favorite is strawberry frosted with sprinkles.
That cured the blues until I took that unfortunate German test, which led to my next go-to cure: pancakes. Pancakes are my favorite food in the world. And Cracker Barrel does them best. Every time I go I order Mama’s Pancake Breakfast, which consists of 3 perfectly crispy buttermilk pancakes, 2 eggs I request scrambled with cheese, and 3 strips of bacon. I can never finish it but man oh man does that hit the spot. I order it no matter the time of day and I never regret it.
mmmm. Up at 5 for the tourney tomorrow!
