So, I’ve been trying to start school off on the right foot by doing all most  as much of the assigned readings as I possibly can. Today, I probably spent a solid six hours of reading and outlining. As I was reading, I felt I was struggling making the connection between what we were discussing in class and what I was reading. I finally finished and something told me to look at the syllabus. I was sold the wrong book. I had been reading out of the wrong book for two weeks now. 
Which brings me to my picture. No more reading tonight. London, wine, and scratch-offs.

Alright! Fine! I’ll admit it. Mabel is pretty cute (when she is not moving around and breathing like a freakin’ barn animal).

These days I prefer to go to Indian buffets alone. Shameless, I am.

London leads food tours throughout Richmond. While I completely support her, I had zero desire to join one. However, somehow I found myself this Sunday morning packed in a 15-passenger van with a whole bunch of eager, 50-something-year-old-foodies. It should be noted that I was promised that I could eat all the sweets my stomach could handle (And she may have propositioned me with some wine. Can’t remember. Doesn’t matter). I complied. I seriously enjoyed all the bakeries and coffee shops we visited in the city, but by the time we got to Sub Rosa Bakery, I didn’t think I could handle another organic-vegan-cheese-danish-cupcake-doughnut-thing. And they didn’t offer, but did they deliver probably the best bread I’ve had. Ever. And it’s not surprising considering the careful detail they put into their product. They cook all their bread in a wood fire oven, mill their own flour, and use all organic, heirloom grains. Put a fork in me. I am done.
