It’s the weekend, so the moonshine grid is open

Ah, breath of fresh air that is the weekend, how you delight us so. I’ve been reading lots of poetry lately, and I’d like to compose a haiku in honor of what will be for me a three day weekend:

Oh blissful weekend
Greet us with a gentle kiss
We shall party hard

It’s the weekend, so the moonshine grid is open

According to people in the know, there’s supposedly a big sports thing happening this weekend. I am not an American football person. I played soccer for many years, and that’s a game I’ll watch (oh World Cup, please come faster!), but I just never got into football. You know what I am here for, though? Snacks. I take my snacking game seriously. I’ll be making some muddy buddies to bring to whatever party I go to, and I will sit in the corner with some crocheting and munch while everyone else talks touchdowns and injuries.

So last weekend I vowed to up my food game, and it went…okay. Meaning, I didn’t really make any new meals, but I DID get a new madeleine pan. You know madeleines, right? Those fluffy, buttery, fluted cake-cookie hybrids? I’ve been wanting to try my hand at making them for years, and now I have a madeleine pan with which to do this. I have some work to take care of first, but I keep glancing over at my recipe book and the shiny new pan sitting on the counter. Distraction by cookie-cakes.

In a fit of boredom with my weeknight go-to meals, I’m trying to up my food game here at home. This weekend, I will be poring over my small stack of cookbooks, and maybe browsing the Internet for new and exciting ways to prepare chicken. As much as I love my lentil salad with goat cheese and beets, it’s time for some new items on the menu.

You know that common anxiety nightmare where all of the sudden it’s back to school tomorrow, but you forgot about it, so you don’t have your supplies, textbooks or a ride to school, and you show up naked and tardy to your first class of the day? I had a moment like that a few days back (well, without the nudity). When I realized my calendar was off by a few weeks, a quick glance at the school calendar online showed that no, school starts again on Monday. Monday. Cue silent weeping. So I have to think of something quite spectacular to do on my final weekend off before the semester starts. Any suggestions?
