Another thing I love about being home is having time to cook. Between my job and the commute, I rarely feel like cooking and often end up eating frozen dinners or picking up something on the way home. But I've been cookin' and bakin' up a storm the last few days and enjoying it sooooo much. So far I've made a potato casserole with mushrooms and brie, tilapia, salmon cakes, quesadilla, corn bread, chocolate chip cookies, and several bowls of guacamole. I kept thinking I should take pictures, but never got around it, so I stole the one above from the Internets.
Also watched 500 Days of Summer on DVD, and it was very, very cute. I wanted to see it when it came out last summer but never got around to it. It's a quirky independent movie, funny and lighthearted.
I've been binge knitting, which I think is far better than binge eating. I'm on my fourth wash cloth using one of my favorite types of yarn, mercerized cotton. It's so smooth and shiny. The wash cloths are made with Fantasy Naturale, a little holiday gift to myself. I will post the patterns soon.
