Middle of The Road

That’s the kind of day I’m assuming it’s going to be, what with the hump day and all.

Chicago is still unreasonably warm for this time of year, which I’m trying to take in stride.

Just keep thinking about when it was 20 degrees and the wind was literally pushing you back where you came from.

It’s all about comparative thinking.

Also, the Cubs = 3 game winning streak. Once again, I mention this only in passing, as I know they’re always about to crush my hopes and dreams.

This week has been (thus far) quick moving, which is great, because it’s all inching me toward a nice.long.weekend. In the meantime, I’ve been watching season finales, working out, and trying to use all the produce hiding out in my crisper.

Hi, my name is Nikki and I can’t resist a 2 for 1 deal at the Farmer’s Market.

This kind of deal sounds great in theory, but has left me with tons of spring onions and spinach that I have no plan for.

Also, this is not baby spinach, triple washed from Whole Foods, ready to be thrown into a hot pan with some olive oil.

This spinach is instead as sandy as a toddler at the beach, with giant leaves and stems that need to be cut back before you can even think about cooking them.

I have more than this, but you get the idea.

I’m thinking about investing in a machete.

It is delicious though, so I guess I should just shut my trap and embrace the 30 minute process of washing, rewashing, cutting up, and rinsing one more time for good measure.

And if that doesn’t work, I’ll get JW to do it.

There’s a solution to every problem my friends.

Have a good day chicks!

  1. It seriously has been season finale week- and I don’t know what I’m going to do with all this free time I’m going to have in the next couple weeks because of it. Enjoy the weather I suppose. Maybe when it’s not hot enough to melt your face off at least…

    Ok. I have something for you: take your kitchen sink, empty, rinse. Plug. Fill with cold water. Stick spinach in the sink. Spin around a few times. Leave for work. Come home. Take spinach out. Drain. All the sand will have sunk.
