Phebruary Phorgiveness?

18 May

Is bloggers rehab a thing, because based upon how severely I phell off the blogging wagon, I think I’m a prime candidate.

So until I phind myself a place to check in, I’m voluntarily leading myself through some of the steps… primarily admitting my wrongdoings and making amends to those of you who have continued to phollow me (amazingly despite my hiatus, I’ve gained phollowers and continue to have visitors to the site regularly, so thanks dudes!)  Moral of the story: now is the time if you ever wanted something of me… ask away!

Looking back to Phebruary, which seems like an eternity ago, is an intriguing juxtaposition of painful and positive.  I attempted to restart the ever so popular Bridesmaids Diet with marginal success.  Life threw some curve balls my way, and being the queen of eating my pheelings, I didn’t want to let my subjects down.  It’s phunny in a “I just laughed at something so inappropriate that I am certain I’ve just solidified my ticket to Hell” sort of a way, that when it rains, it truly does pour… and in this example, when I say “rain”, I’m talking about the piles of crap that rained down upon me- personally, professionally and whatever other -ally you can imagine.

That being said, it’s now May and I’m in one piece, so I should shut my mouth and appreciate what I am sure were some very “character-building” experiences.

Euphemistic statements aside, let’s talk phood!

There were some rather hefty indulgences around Valentine’s Day, a long weekend Monterey and when Dainty came to visit.  Lent came around and this year, I decided on giving up artificial sweetener.  That was painful yet positive, I must say!  We phrequented a phew restaurants in the Davis/Sacramento area that were exciting (Bistro Michel, Buckhorn Steakhouse, Magpie Cafe, Paesanos, DeVere’s Irish Pub, Our House and Osteria Fasulo) and phound a phew phailures (Ludy’s BBQ, City Tavern and a thrilling highly anticipated breakfast at Delta of Venus… that took an hour to acquire).  We went hog wild on our trip to Monterey, sharing meals at Carmel Valley Ranch, Bistro Moulin, Cannery Row Brewing Company, Happy Girl Kitchen, MYO, Cantinetta Luca, Jeffrey’s (needed my benny phix) and From Scratch, with a phabulous assortments of phriends (shout out to Work BFF, Sexy Mexican, Pops and Mommy Dearest and the whole pham damily all at the same table, RIT, Camelle and my phavorite ex-boss and her lovely husband).  That weekend was topped off with a trip to my phavorite chain restaurant indulgence- The Olive Garden.

Don’t judge me, we all have one.

In happy news, I am currently unemployed.  Ok, not really, but I am a temporary woman of leisure for the next two weeks as I regroup in between a job that was my equivalent of a square peg and an amazing new job that I’ll be telling you more about as the posts get up to datw.  Hence why blogger’s rehab starts today.  I’m hoping I’ll be cured in record time.

Do y’all phorgive me?

End of August, End of an Era

20 Sep

The last phew days of August were nothing short of a whirlwind.  My last day at my job was the 31st, and I phrantically tried to get as much work phinished as possible before my departure.  I also tried to phit in as much phood and as many phriends as possible.

I took time out for an awesome Dr. Seuss themed birthday party which takes up the lion’s share of this post…

September is on the horizon!

Bite the Bullet Blitzkrieg (July 18-29)

5 Sep

Time to bite the bullet and legitimately catch up, phollowers!

Below is a gallery of everything consumed between July 18 and July 29.  Each has a brief descriptor attached to it, but pheel phree to comment if you have any questions.  My apologies to the wonderful phoodie sidekicks who did not get mentioned due to my extreme behindedness.  Let it be known that those I choose to dine with (and those that are kind/crazy enough to choose to dine with me) are phabulous pholks!

More coming right up!

July 5,6,7

21 Aug

July Phifth started with some corn I made in the microwave and opened too quickly and burnt the crapola out of my hand.

I comforted myself with another one of the most amazing cookies in the world.

Work BFF and another coworker and I had lunch at Monterey Coast Brewing Company.

I tried their new Greek Salad- huge and pretty tasty.

The office got phrozen yogurt in the afternoon.  I had blueberry with grape nuts.

I met The Republican for a Han Solo martini and a roasted garlic and cheese plate at Pajaro Street Wine Bar.

The ex-phella and I went to trivia but were sick of the menu options at the pub.  So we stopped at Safeway after and got a bunch of yummy nibbles and ate them on the couch while watching a movie.

On July 6, the office got take out from Salinas City BBQ.

I tried the Chicken Salad for the phirst time- enjoyable, as is everything on their menu I’ve has thus phar.

I snagged a phorkful of potatoe salad from Sparky.  Yum, Yum. Yum.

I met my mother for dinner at Sea Harvest and had calamari & veggies.

We stopped in at MYO afterward for dessert.  I must say, the tart pink grapefruit candy topping was a tasty addition!

July 7 started with some bacon…

… which led in well to the nutrition presentation we had at the office over the lunch hour (during which they also provided lunch).

I went to Georgia’s house for dinner and enjoyed some more southern hospitality- in the phorm of phried pork chops and phried okra.

So much for the effectiveness of that nutrition presentation, eh? 😉
