Saturday morning is a very important time of the week for me. It’s when I decompress from the work week and do an assortment of things that make me calm and collected. Like go to the Farmer’s Market. And browse Whole Foods (literally I do this, please don’t judge me). It’s my therapy, you could say. So, every Saturday morning I’m going to share a weekly update on what I’ve been reading, watching, cooking, and more. Because I think catching up on news and friends is what you’re supposed to do on Saturday mornings.
I’m writing this from one of my favorite coffee shops, Copa Vida. I ordered an Avocado Toast, which basically make me the most “LA” person ever, but I worked out this morning and if I didn’t eat afterwards I knew that my friends would give me lectures about eating right, so here we are with my avocado toast and latte. I repeat, I am the most LA person ever today.
Let’s talk about my week:
I made this Chicken Noodle Soup and it was so easy I was shocked, honestly. So easy and so good.
I’m reading Everything Is Awful by Matt Bellassai and it’s amazing to say the least. If Matt isn’t one of your favorite people, then you need to re-evaluate your life and go binge-watch Whine About It immediately. Watch this one to get started and then report back with your findings.
Liz from Sequins And Stripes did an Instagram Live where she cooked her Mom’s soup recipe and all of a sudden I want to do weekly Instagram Live shows where I just cook.
I got a gift card for Macy’s for Christmas and I bought this Cuisinart blender because I didn’t have a blender and now I do and now I can make smoothies but I don’t really know how to make smoothies so please send me all your recipes.
My coworker Desirea told me about this pottery throwing studio in LA and I want to do it really bad. Their classes are a month long with one class a week. Also I would like to point out that my boss Kristina literally though Desirea meant throwing pottery against a wall hahahahaha
I also had a $50 gift card to Williams Sonoma to use so I BOUGHT THIS PIZZA STONE AND I VERY EXCITED TO HAVE PIZZA NIGHTS WITH ALL OF MY FRIENDS.
The Pasadena Half Marathon is tomorrow! I’m a proud resident of Pasadena and I’m hoping to get out in the city to watch.
For anyone who lives in LA, Carmela is having some ice cream making classes next month. They are at the Pasadena location, which is literally a mile from my house, and they are guaranteed to be so fun. I wish I could go!
What are you up to this Saturday morning? I hope you have a restful weekend ahead, friends ❤
