I think I may have to change the name of my blog- something like Tallo Tuesdays. I realize I’ve been posting only weekly, and it seems to always happen on a Tuesday. It reminds me of a piece that a class clown of the BHS class of 1999 (maybe 2000, not quite sure) wrote in the student paper once about all the days of the week, each day had a nickname, or a purpose, all but poor Tuesday. The article ended with, “So, what’s up with Tuesday?” or something to that effect. Funny how you still remember little things like that, but for the life of me cannot remember things from a year ago!
I was looking through notes from my grad program yesterday and oh man! There’s so much already that I’ve forgotten. The notes are in my handwriting, but I couldn’t help but think, “Did I really do this? Really? I understood this at one point?” I’m a bit rusty now and haven’t used much of it, but that is my first and foremost goal of 2011. To put it to work. Maybe I can start leveraging my baking ratios or start a commodity trading clearing house out of my kitchen? No? Ok. Cool. I’ll just bake for now. 🙂
It was a cold and blustery day here yesterday, but I finally finally finally had a public holiday off! Yipeeeee! After having to work the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve I was ready for a day to play hooky. I slept in until a leisurely 9:30 and made up some blueberry muffins.
I decided to be productive so I went to my local Starbucks, hung out for a bit, went for a brief (and cold!) walk with a friend, then headed to the grocery store for some sundries. It was taco night at La Cucina, roomie & I made up a tasty dinner while watching completely trashy TV. Please do not judge, I read several news magazines and plenty of non-fiction, I need a light-weight media outlet somewhere in my life, and yes, it’s reality TV.
But before all that, I wanted to make sure I had something stocked up in the fridge for a busy week ahead, so I made a large pot of Tortellini Soup. The few bites I had yesterday were pretty good, but this one I pretty much made up completely so no guarantees my friends!
