That’s an ironic title. My weekend was not freakin’ unless you count incredibly productivity as being freakin’. Which, btw, I think we should.
Last night I posted my to-do list from the weekend and I think it’s pretty safe to say I rocked it. There are some things I purposely didn’t get it (going to Housing Works) and some things that didn’t work out the way I wanted to (more formal exercise), but otherwise I’m pretty happy. I think I need to make more to-do lists.
On my way home from work on Friday I ran a bunch of errands, including stopping at Potbelly (my love, see here, here, here, here, and here for evidence) to pick up lunch. I was very happy when Potbelly opened in NYC last summer, they’ve since expanded and opened a location close to my office. I don’t go too often, it’s not like it’s health food (although I do get the “skinny” bread and half meat), but when I go I’m always happy.
After I got home from kickboxing on Friday I made Jessica’s Watermelon Feta + Basil Quinoa. I liked it, I think I would have liked it more without the honey and with balsamic vinegar.
Saturday I went for a walk in the park since I decided I was too sore from kickboxing to go two days in a row (gotta work myself back up!). It was not a pleasant walk and I still kind of wish I hadn’t gone (I guess I do regret some workouts). I was so sore and normally a walk would loosen me up, but it just made it worse. Plus a blister on a my foot burst and was so painful and it was humid as hell.
But I made it through and on my way home I stopped at the library to return and get books and at the Greenmarket to buy stuff for my foodie pen pal and flowers for me. I also needed to stop at a grocery store I never go to and I found Graeter’s ice cream! I love Graeter’s and it’s one of the reasons I look forward to going to Cincinnati every year, but now it’s here. Woo-hoo!
Saturday afternoon was spent reading, watching soccer, and cleaning. My roommate and I got burgers for dinner Saturday night and then I watched The Dark Knight (I had never seen it!) and went to bed.
Sunday I woke up and watched the men’s French Open final (which will continue into tomorrow due to rain). While I watched I cleaned my room. Once it was determined the match was done for today I showered, ate lunch, and then headed up to Carroll Gardens to do some shopping.
I bought more stuff for my foodie pen pal (it’s hard in NYC, stuff is so expensive!) and a smoothie for myself. On my way home I stopped at a different Greenmarket and then a bakery.
Once I got home I ate my roll from the Greenmarket and finished cleaning my apartment.
A little while of relaxing and then I realized I forgot to buy an onion for the recipe I wanted to make. So it was back out.
Once I had my onion I made another How Sweet Eats recipe, this time Creamy Tuscan White Bean Pasta. It was very good and creamy (TWSS?).
Now I’m going to paint my nails, put on my face mask, and get ready for the Mad Men season finale!
