Coffee and Food

It’s too warm here. I think we’re supposed to be in the sixties by the weekend. I do not like this! It’s WINTER. W-I-N-T-E-R-!-!-!

You see I grew up in central NJ. We had seasons. All four of them even! I miss it so. We ice skated outside on ponds and lakes. We went skiing and sledding on real, non man-made snow. It was COLD. Frigid even. You know that serious snap of cold that hits you in the face when you walk outside in January? Yeah, I miss that.

See some pics while I whine about the weather?

It’s always interesting to see what they write on my cups. Lots of people get my name right. Some, do not. For some reason. Donna is so plain and non-exotic and I can never understand when people get it wrong.


That little cup sleeve? I made that yo. I keep it in my purse, so I actually remember to use it when I’m out and about and pick up a latte. Saving trees, one sleeve at a time. You can check out my craftgrrl post about them here. There’s a link to the tutorial I used to make it.

Last night I made calzones. It’s definitely a go-to recipe for me. Mike makes the dough in the morning and lets it rise all day. Then I assemble them right before they go into the oven. Not super healthy, no, but fresh and delicious and filling. Bread and cheese and veg, what’s not to love! I roasted some asparagus to go with it. Got to get that green!


Oh and look here’s my lunch from today:


One of my favorite sandwiches to make and eat. Tomato, basil, fresh mozzarella. I make a light balsamic vinaigrette which I drizzle onto the ciabatta bread. Oh my God, SO GOOD!
