First Week Of April’s Top Ten

{1} Stumptown’s newest cold brew box – coconut.


{2} This week’s homemade coffee blend – chocolate milk and espresso roast.



{3} Giant veggie omelet for breakfast at work.  They are made fresh to order and are by far the best dish coming out of the cafeteria.


{4} Garlic veggie pizza with a side of brussels sprout salad.


{5} Yogurt bowl.  Plain Greek with strawberries, praline pecan granola, walnuts, and chocolate covered cacao nibs.


{6} Oatmeal bowl.  Oats, chia seeds, strawberries, and cookie butter.  Simple, but this was the best oatmeal of the year.


{7} This month’s Skoshbox.  There were chocolate-covered potato chips!


{8} Biscoff chocolate chip mug cookie.


{9} Trader Joe’s frozen “pizza.”  The crust was a bit floppy but the sauce had good spicy kick to it.



{10} Creamy tomato turkey.  Sautéed ground turkey with browned mushrooms, roasted plum tomatoes, tomato paste, sour cream, tons of smoked paprika, salt and pepper.  Plus roasted zucchini.  I made a truly excessive amount of this dish and even after a couple of meals there’s still some left for next week.


{Bonus} Non-food Entertainment Top Five

{1} “Hart of Dixie.”  I finished it last week but it I’m still not over it, the storyline was just so fun!  It was such a feel-good show, I really enjoyed watching something that wasn’t heartrending for a change (<– Whedon fan).

{2} Slate.  The source of 95%+ of my news plus the amazing Dear Prudence advice column (<– her response to “Too High” was spot on!).

{3} Girls with Slingshots.  Another soap opera!  This webcomic series is on long-term hiatus but you can start at the beginning and read through the archives.

{4} Serious Eats.  The source of 95%+ of my food-based news and cravings.  This is one of the sites I check every morning during my train ride, I’d hate to miss an article like the Nacho Showdown.

{5} Taylor Swift’s hilarious Apple Music commercial.
