First week of the new year

2018 New Year Mantle

How’s everyone’s first week of 2018? It is finally a little warmer here in Oklahoma. 40, 50°F is definitely more doable for me. I think I’m going to brisk walk around the neighborhood later today. Hopefully 49°F isn’t too cold for me. Don’t think my silly dog would walk with me in this cold weather though.

I was so happy to receive two packages from my friends recently. My friend drew me some art after I jokingly asked her for some. Gotta love them for being so sweet to me even though I’m half a globe away from them. The artwork couldn’t have been more apt for me too since I’ve an obnoxious amount of plants indoors right now. I need to figure out a better way to keep my indoor plants because it looks like quite a mess. If only we have a sunroom!

Homemade Egg Noodles Avocado Toast Shrimp & Grits at Bread and Butter Kitchen & Bakery Tulsa

I had a few fun meals last week. Made homemade egg noodles from scratch last Tuesday because I was craving for some. The recipe is so simple; it’s just flour, eggs, a few tablespoon of water and a pinch of salt. It may be time to buy a pasta maker soon, so I can try more recipes.

An avocado toast sounded great on Thursday, so I made myself some that day. Why, oh why have I not been making it more often? It really should be a weekly staple because it’s so easy to make for how good it tastes. Just some salt, pepper and cayenne pepper on the avocado, and it’s good to go.

We also went to a new place Bread and Butter Kitchen and Bakery for dinner on Saturday. Tulsa is not a big city, but there’s always new food joints popping up which I’m so thankful of. Bread and Butter Kitchen and Bakery opened in early 2017, and I have been wanting to go for quite a while. A place with good food and dessert is totally up my alley. I was feeling adventurous that day and ordered Shrimp & Grits for the first time. I am glad I tried it because it was really tasty. It will also take me a while to forget the chocolate ganache cheesecake that we ordered.

Yep, my day usually evolves around food which is why I need to exercise a lot more!
