Last week, I sent out the latest Pot + Pantry newsletter. Sign up for the mailing list if you feel inclined to indulge my penchant for dorky, self-deprecating humor (“humor”—it should really be in quotes, as I use that term loosely here) and the occasional tidbit of useful shop news.
The past few days and weeks have all sort of run into each other, but I captured some moments on Instagram which I thought I’d share here to show what I’ve been up to lately.
A customer who happens to be a bartender at Jasper’s Corner Tap was so sweet to get me this jar of Malted Milk Chocolate Sauce. Apparently, it’s used in a drink at the bar! I like their style.
Across town, I went to go check out Outfit Generic’s new kitchen and got treated to the best “breakfast” I’ve had in a while. Lavender marshmallows, carrot meringues, chocolate cake, and pâte de fruit beat my usual bowl of cold cereal hands down.
I scored some tickets to the ever-popular Pop-Up Magazine event. Great seats! Good times.
And somehow, I ended up with a coveted seat at the Kinfolk brunch at Heirloom Cafe. I knew no one else going and was a bit nauseous with social anxiety, but all was well. I saw some familiar faces and made some new friends. Not the worst way to spend a beautiful Saturday afternoon.
A peek at my tablemates. I spy Heidi, Anne, Caitlin, and Erin. Not pictured: Len, Andrea, and Spencer. They are my new best friends, though I don’t think they know that yet.
This week is going to be a doozy for me. Wednesday is my birthday, which I find both exciting and dreadful. Just gotta suck it up and get through it! Like ripping off a band-aid.
