a month in photos and numbers and food

12//different kinds of holiday cookies emerged from my kitchen (involving these bad boys, obviously. And these too. And several others that were devoured too quickly to be photographed)

2//times I wore my fancy new running shoes before falling and hurting my foot. Perhaps I need a more graceful form of physical activity?

2//bottles of ginger beer (one alcoholic, one not) sacrificed in an attempt to make butterbeer. Someday I will succeed.

3//different fresh herbs -thyme, parsley, and chives- found their way into a new recipe for fresh pasta (stay tuned…)

15//nespresso pods transformed into hazelnut, mocha, peppermint, and almond lattes 

32//ounces of cacao nibs (courtesy of Emily), tablespoons of which found their way into many a bowl of oatmeal, blended in smoothies, and atop a last-day-at-home chocolate cake

1//number of mussels I ate before deciding I’ve been missing out on a really buttery garlicky part of life and will never go back (they were prepared something like this). There were also truffle fries involved. Is it time to join the finer things club?

6//different kinds of chocolate sampled on a tour of the Mast Brothers Chocolate factory…my favorite was their Vanilla & Smoke bar. Also I found out they’re hiring and I feel like this is a post-grad plan I could get behind.

1//Malva pudding, which I tried the first time at Jack’s Wife Freda. Honestly, one of the most incredible desserts I’ve ever had. Needless to say, I was very close to putting it in my purse to take home and study, but I suppose recipes also work? Someone send me a good one!

 hope everyone had a good first month of the new year!
