I don’t want to say I’m weak, (because I may or may not let out a little whimper of “OooOooo!” when the freezing wind and snowflakes hit my face) but my excuse is that I’m from Southern California. This weekend, it snowed, and it stuck! Even though I’ve spent the majority of my life in snowy places, it’s still SO EXCITING when it snows! :D
So what does one do with a snowy weekend?? …walk around the city for hours, of course. Caitlyn and I walked up to Eastern Market which is magical. This is what I think of when I think DC…
Isn’t it beautiful?! :D This was only the beginning of the snow, but as long as you have a hot cup of coffee in hand like we did, then really, what more do you need besides perhaps the FREAKING CUTEST black lab puppy to play with?!
And then we rounded off the weekend with this week’s new recipe: Garlicky White Bean and Spinach Soup! (Not the best pre-date meal, but perfect for a night in with some wine and a movie!) They’re serious about the *Garlicky* part in the name! If you follow the recipe, you’ll get an INTENSE garlicky-ness that we thought was too sharp-tasting, so we added some sour cream to smooth out the flavor and texture. Here’s the link to the original recipe.
And I’ll leave you with a little French phrase of the day:
Aujourd’hui, j’ai cuisiné une soupe merveilleuse!
-Today, I cooked a wonderful soup! :D
