Five Things I would encourage you to do this weekend:
Two: Read something special. I’m reading An Everlasting Meal. It’s not a cookbook. It’s not a memoir. It’s a book about life and the kitchen. It feels so different and so good.
Three: Make the call. Call you mother. Call your uncle. Call your neighbor. There’s not enough time in the day, especially when things like Twitter and Pinterest exist. I understand. Listen… just ignore the stupid Facebook timeline thing that’s totally annoying, and pick up the phone to tell you’re Great Aunt Mary that you love her and you think she’s the most awesome old lady around. Those things are important. Facebook timeline is not… don’t let them trick you.
Four: Buy a new lipstick. I love how a new lip color changes how I feel about my wardrobe. Girl talk!
Five: Maybe you have to work all weekend. I know… that’s real life. Why not come home, order good Chinese food, sweep your apartment floor while you’re waiting for delivery, then quickly eat your take-out while you watch an old episode of The Walking Dead. Eat somewhat quickly… before the zombie mess gets too gross. Aaaannnddd… you just got a glimpse of how I really live.
Five things! Enjoy them, or just totally ignore me. Either way I’m glad you’re here.
Oh! I made a cake with beans in it! I have a mad fascination with sneaking beans into things. Black Bean Brownies! Major. A new favorite for life.
I also have a huge fascination with big, chunky, flaked coconut. I’ve made doughnuts, and I’m downright obsessed with this kale and coconut concoction. I’m just really into this coconut. This sneaky bean cake is just the latest victim of coconut sprinkling. Get into it!
