You guys! I got my first donations for the Girls on the Run Solemates program! I am SO excited!!! Thanks to Dr. Brown and Julie for being so awesome!
In other news…I am addicted to all things remotely Mexican cuisine this week. I had another dipping variety bowl for lunch. I seriously feel like I could eat this stuff two meals a day for the whole week and be perfectly content. I would say three…but, come on, taco dip for breakfast? Not quite appealing to me.
The announced a super cool event that’s going to happen in Grand Rapids in the spring. It’s a ten day comedy festival called LaughFest; proceeds are going to our local Gilda’s Club. Headliners are Mike Birbiglia, Bill Cosby, and drumroll please…Betty White! So excited! I would love to go to all three shows, but I think I’m going to see Betty since she doesn’t usually tour for a stand-up show. Plus, she’s freaking awesome. Confession: I love watching the Golden Girls reruns. Those ladies are too funny.
A few coworkers and I went out for happy hour/dinner tonight to 25 kitchen + bar.
They have great happy hour specials, so it’s a common one for us at happy hour. Well drinks, house wines, and most of the beers are all $2.25, 9″ pizzas are $5.00, and appetizers are half off.
There’s nothing quite like a glass of merlot after a long day. Well, I actually really could have gone for a beer, but the thought of something cold when I was already freezing just didn’t sound appealing!
They have the craziest pizza combos, so that is inevitably what I get. Tonight, I went with the West African.
Onion, peanut butter, whole chili peppers, potato, squash, turnip, carrot, cabbage, tomato, and marinara. That’s a lot of toppings on a little pizza, my friends!
Once I got all of the chile peppers picked off, it was really great. I like spicy stuff, but it was just a
lot little too much. I ate half and the rest is waiting for another day. I love leftovers!
What’s the craziest pizza toppings you’ve had? The peanut butter definitely took the cake for me!
