Oh my lawd, it’s already Wednesday. My life has been taken over with appointments and late night baseball games. No, I will not tell you which team I am cheering for. Mostly because I don’t cheer for teams, but also because sports teams make people say rude things. Like “I thought you were a great person until I found out you were a _______ fan.” Like, what? That’s probably one of the dumbest things you can say. Same reason I don’t talk about religion or politics on my website. You want someone to get real d*ck head opinionated on ya, talk about sports, Obama or the God you pray to. Not touching it. No way, no how. I have better things to talk about. Like puppies. And new restaurants.
Speaking of new restaurants, I’m trying out a few this week. You see, sometimes you get in a rut when it comes to creating recipes. Ok, wait, sometimes I get in a rut. I see other food bloggers who never run out of ideas and I just don’t get it. Because I get in random ruts all the time. And since I came up with around 66 recipes for my latest project in a little over two weeks, I need to find some inspiration. That’s where restaurants come into play. Denver is FULL with awesome restaurants. They are everywhere. Including Boulder. So I’m heading to Boulder today to try out a new paleo restaurant then trying another restaurant tomorrow in the Baker neighborhood. I’m guessing I’ll also be purchasing food somewhere on Halloween. I know that’s a lot of money to spend on food in a week, but I need ideas people. I need some help with flavor combinations or a meat that I haven’t tried cooking myself. Wish me luck.
I wish it could stay fall forever here in CO. Since I leave this weekend for Pittsburgh, I’m going to miss another week and a half here in CO. I just know that when I get back, there will probably be snow on the ground. Oh the sadness. I’m ok with snow, especially since we still live in an apartment so we don’t have to shovel, but I’m not really into the whole cold thing. That’s why I buy myself a new winter coat every year. It’s my way of developing a positive reinforcement about living in a snowy state. I don’t think reinforcement is the right word, but you get what I’m going for. A new coat or jacket makes winter worth it. And boots. Obviously. If you saw my instagram post about rearranging my closet, you know I have a brown boot obsession.
Ok, I can’t talk anymore, I have restaurants to eat at, baseball games to watch (meaning look at instagram 96% of the time), and political commercials to despise. Is it election day yet so those d*ck head commercials can end?? I swear, those commercials teach children to talk sh*t about each other. Crap, I started talking about politics, I gotta knock that sh*t off. Kbye!
