1. Among the many other reasons I love Ingrid Michaelson is the fact that she performed totally sweet covers of both Radiohead's "Creep" and Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" during her show Friday. She also did a hilarious ode to Mexican food as her encore. I told you...the girl is rad.
2. It's almost officially fall, and I'm so excited to partake in autumnal activities. Last year, we had planned to take a day trip to Ridgefield Farm. They have a pumpkin patch, apple orchard, and a haunted hayride/corn maze. For various reasons, we never made it out there, but I'm thinking we'll have to go for sure this year. How are you celebrating the season?
3. Today is grocery shopping day, so I've been planning out our meals for the week. Here's what I'm thinking. Tonight: Turkey meatballs with linguine and marinara sauce. Tuesday: Tortilla Soup with avocado for garnish and a side of corn. Wednesday: Baked Salmon with Mustard-Dill Sauce and a side of garlic sauteed spinach. Thursday: Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup (the Pacific Foods brand. Their boxed soups are delish...I highly recommend 'em) and cheddar and spinach paninis (grown-up grilled cheese). Friday: Go out to eat! What's everyone else eating this week?
Happy Monday everyone! Hope you're having a good one.
