Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing (or not relaxing if you went out and partied your face off) New Years Eve. I spent the day doing all things I love. I had short, but sweet workout yesterday morning at the gym and discovered some weight lifting exercises that didn’t bother my arm/hand. That made me feel really, really good that I could lift at least a little. I kept the weights pretty low though. I didn’t want to hurt myself.
Then, brunch ensued at one of my favorite spots in Boulder, Snooze! Snooze just opened a few months ago and they have the most unique dishes! And I got to spend time with a few of my favorite ladies that I don’t see very often because of school. I had a most delicious latte while the rest of the crew had mimosas. I was saving drinking for later! I had the three egg omelet with arugula, portabella mushrooms and goat cheese and giant side of fruit. Perfect!
My lovely friend, Elaine, had the Tuscan benedict, which I have had on another occasion and is delicious.
She also had the pancake of the day, which was a buttermilk pancake with Heath bar and bacon bits swirled into it. What a creation! Whoever comes up with the pancakes at Snooze has a very creative mind.
My other two friends got this pancake, the Ichabod Crane, which is a buttermilk pancake topped with streusel, pumpkin cream, candied pumpkin seeds and chili spiced maple syrup. This is my favorite pancake I’ve had so far there.
After sufficiently stuffing our faces, I did a little grocery shopping and then the bf and I power cleaned the apartment. We need to have people come over more often; it looks so wonderfully clean in our living room right now. Two of my girl friends came over and we spent a very low key evening eating obscene amounts of food and watching TV.
I made pulled pork and roasted poblano/pancetta mac n cheese. Alli made falafel and Lindsay brought an incredibly decadent and oh so yummy salted caramel chocolate cake. The bf was the official refiller of glasses and drink creator. A very relaxing and cheesy night.
I woke up this morning feeling a little off. What a lightweight! I drank half a glass of white wine and two glasses of champagne and I have a headache. Indie and I are up and waiting for the bf to wake up. Perhaps I will make something in my new mixer. It’s finally in my possession and I’m in love and obsessed with it!
Be well & happy eating in the New Year!
