Sour Cream Noodle Bake

It has been a week!  These last two days at work have felt exhausting.  I haven't had to work long hours.

I have been trying to learn something new, and that has required more effort.  I feel like I have spent hours googling how to complete the task.  I have hours ahead of me too because I'm far from completing the assignment.

Ham, Broccoli, and Cheddar Cheese Pizza

These may seem like a strange combination, but it worked.  My inspiration was broccoli and cheese soup.

I think this was the first time I have ever had broccoli on a pizza.  I have had peas on pizza before.  I briefly lived in Taiwan, and peas were a popular pizza topping there.

Cookies and Cream Chocolate Pancakes

Next week they are painting the walls and re-carpeting my floor at work.  They are refurbishing a different section every week.  We are responsible for packing all our stuff in boxes.  Fortunately we don't have to move our stuff our our furnishings.

I'll be sharing an office with a coworker on another floor for a week.  I'll have to cart down my two monitors, my chair, and anything I'll need for the week.  Another coworker will be storing all her plants in the same office.  She has about 15, so it's going to be a little botanical garden.

Tortellini Primavera

I am going to what will probably be my last baseball game of the season.  I have only gone to two other games this year, but that is pretty good for me.  I think I only went to one game last year.

I am a pretty indifferent fan, but I support the Nationals.  DC is the only city I have lived in with a professional baseball team.  I don't like watching baseball on TV, but it is fun to see in person.

Lemon Lover's Cake

It is starting to feel like Fall around here.  This last weekend, I went to Pennsylvania with a couple of friends.  I wore a jacket almost the entire time.  It was brisk.

One of my friends and I went white water rafting.  It was a rush.  I have done white water rafting before, but this was the most exciting section of river I have ever rafted.  It seemed like the rapids were almost constant.

Cream of Wheat Pancakes with Chocolate Chips

I am in the processes of making plans to see the Harry Potter amusements are Universal Studios with my cousin.  I'm a Harry Potter fan.  I have read all the books on more than one occasion.

It is appropriate that I am going with my cousin because I waited in line with her to go see the first showing of one of the first Harry Potter movies in our hometown.  We went directly after school.  That was well over a decade ago.

Chocolate Brownie Swirled with Peanut Butter Blondie

I have been eating my fair share of sugar recently.  It all started with these brownies.  I then made a cake a week later.  I went to a bakery a few days ago and ate two brownies for dinner.  

I have an insatiable sweet tooth.  Some people complain that a certain dessert is too rich, but I have never encountered that problem.  I take great pleasure in rich, chocolate desserts.
