I honestly don’t really know the exact sandwich Elvis really loved, but I’m pretty sure it was these flavors. If it wasn’t, it should have been.

Moving on. Welp. That wasn’t exactly fun to watch last night. That’s really all I have to say about that since I don’t really like football anyways.

Sorry this isn’t a 5 ingredient recipe. It’s tough to move houses and cook at the same time. But I’ll get you one this week. Don’t worry buttercup.

But anyways, moving is done. If you didn’t hear me talk about it for the past month, you sure missed out. I’ll give you a recap, I don’t want you to feel in the dark. I found this apartment about a month ago and even though I didn’t need to move out of my house until May, I decided it was too perfect to say no to. So I hounded the landlord with emails and calls and got my deposit check in as soon as the bank opened. I didn’t give him the opportunity to say no. Well, since I got the place starting in February, I decided I shouldn’t waste more money not living in it. So I’ve moved from the Wash Park area of Denver to City Park. I like parks.

Moving is probably one of the least fun things. Ever. You always scrape some kind of furniture. You usually fall at least once (especially if you’re moving in the snow like I did). And you find out all the money you have to spend on refilling groceries, decorating the place, and figure out everything you’re missing since you don’t have roommates anymore. A plunger? Ah crap. Hi Home Depot. But in the end, it’s totally worth it. Especially if you have lovely friends who are selfless enough to help you move. You know those are good people because honestly, nobody actually likes helping with that.

So I’m living the uptown city life now. Lots more shouting and car noise, but I’m into it. Now I have a much larger kitchen so I actually enjoy being in it AND I have an office AND I have a huge balcony to take food pictures on. Pretty much, I got this new place so I could make better food and blogs for you. I’m so selfless.

That’s a total lie.
