Not much on the menu this week. Soup/salad/sandwich combos for lunches & mini dinners, plus stuff in the freezer for dinner. Not very exciting but keeping it simple as I'm busy and put the money saved to new shoes. Or, really bought new shoes therefore kept it simple :)

A week in pictures

I realize I haven't been writing much over here, and posting through pictures. I decided this week to add a little dialogue to make sense or compliment the pics.

On Monday I headed out to the Hot Docs box office to pick up tickets for the shows Jamie & her boy are coming to see with me.

Tuesday was (thankfully) rather uneventful but that means there was some extra time to cuddle with the kitten. Ok, I know he's not kitten anymore but I don't think I'll ever see him otherwise.

My longest living plant, "the ugly plant" gets repotted by a green thumbed co-worker much to my delight. I was too scared to do anything different with it as it's survived many a move. On

Thursday I got to have lunch with my Mom, as she really wanted to try out the new portabello mushroom subs at Quinzo's. I got the chicken and she got the steak, they were both really good.

Friday I got to hang out with Jamie as we went to Hot Docs Day 2 to see Anvil! The Story of Anvil and hit the pub.

Saturday was more Hot Docs fun, but in between films I decided to pick up some new comfy running shoes in case of TTC Strike I really hope they don't strike but if they do now I'm ready for some long walks.

Not much up today yet, but I did pop out to get groceries (and test out my shoes - which rock, yay!).

Two weeks in pictures

I'm surprized I didn't pick any festival pics for the past two weeks considering that is what I've done almost every day. I guess they are all over at Movie Moxie!

This was for 2 weeks and I am surprized I was under budget by $10+. I picked up a lot of convenience stuff as it was quite the busy time. OH! I saved that $10 to pick up home-made style soup from the grocery store by work so I can have that during the week along with salad. I caved a bunch with week and bought some non healthy stuff, which tends to go hand in hand with the busy thing.

On the menu this week: Mushroom/peameal bacon pasta (see pic below), black bean tortillas, sausage/cabbage/barley something - new recipe! I hope it's a good one.
