I think my love for bagels will never go away but I also might not be going daily anymore. It was good while it lasted.

Today was Independent Book Store Day. I had planned on dropping by two different ones, but the panic hit first and then the snow so we only made it to one.

The Poke place we wanted to go to was closed, so we came to this one instead. It disappointed. The salmon was flavorless, the avocado was guac, and toppings not requested were added.

It was good but still not exactly right. Also my tummy is still not up for anything fun, booze or food wise and that kinda sucks.

One day I’m going to look back at this and wonder whatever was so hard about going in a circle around the lyra. At least I hope there’s a one day for that feeling. (also on instagram)

I’ve been craving yogurt, peaches, and granola. So that’s what I’ve been enjoying. I do miss my bagels though and might get one for lunch.

We’re still using hello fresh. It’s been over a month now and while I am happy to have the service, their timing is off. For example, meal takes 30 minutes but oven baked potatoes take 25 minutes to cook, 5 minutes to prep, and the oven 15 minutes to heat… I am annoyed that they never consider the pre-heat time. Also they never cook the meat long enough, I always end up cooking it four to eight minutes longer.

Cooking w/HelloFresh #IHateCooking and “White People Food” Is Creating an Unattainable Picture of Health - the first link takes you to a video by Jouelzy in which she makes a comment about how white people put sour cream in everything. The comment struck me, as someone who recently has been using hello fresh, I had just made the comment about how everything in their dishes included sour cream and how it was rather repetitive and uninspiring (though they do sometimes make a pretty decent sauce). Hearing her call it white food was interesting to me. Follow up with the next article, it makes me wonder what other options are out there and how I can go about changing my perspective.
