I’m back… sorta

So we still don’t have Internet access. I’m bumming off the free wi-fi at the Whole Foods across the street. I am currently sitting outside at their tables with a baby on my lap, typing away.

I just had to blog though because my brain is exploding with things to say.

Well, speaking of Whole Foods. Ummm it’s awesome. I may have spent over half the month’s grocery budget on a week’s worth of groceries though so I need to stay away and go to the Trader Joe’s up the street instead.

Remember the sandals from Target that I used in all my nursing fashion outfit things? Well, don’t buy them. Mine are already thrashed and I seriously JUST bought these things. Grrr.

The move went really, really smooth. Some of my furniture may disagree with that statement, but no major damage was done, just a few little bonks and scratches. Now it looks loved.

I had my first ever IKEA experience on Sunday. I bought some lamps. I was going to order some bookcases and a desk from there, but being as how they want to charge me $350 for shipping, I’m exploring some alternatives first.

I am so excited to be cooking again! Last night I made some really yummy Chinese food and tonight we are having these guys over for Italian because my recipe made an insane amount of food.

Have you missed my Gourmet Lisa posts? Well fear not, this is one. I decided to experiment a little with some of my leftover ingredients from dinner in order to make dessert tonight. Here goes…

Berry and Ricotta Filo Tart

-1 cup Ricotta cheese
-4-5 oz blueberries
-8 oz strawberries, topped and diced
-3 tbsp orange juice
-filo dough

Preheat oven to 375.

In a small bowl combine all ingredients except filo dough.

Unroll filo sheets and cut 2-3” squares. Place squares in ramekins or in muffin/cupcake tin. Spoon berry and cheese mixture on top.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until edges of filo are golden brown and berries are tender.

Enjoy warm or cool.

And this is the result…

Oh and in case that wasn’t enough in the dessert department, Cara came over this afternoon and dropped these little lovelies by…

Ummm… delish.

While we’re at it, let’s add a little more eye candy to this post…

Yep, she’s a cutie. I seriously can’t go anywhere with her without being stopped by at least five people.

Oh and I’m actually loving apartment living. I promise to post pictures of our new diggs as soon as we’re unpacked. But this is why… Saturday when we got here we discovered that our washer was a bit loud. Like a plane taking off upstairs. So I reported it to maintenance yesterday and today they brought me a brand new one (I peeled the protective film off the knobs myself)! No more fixing stuff ourselves. That is the best.

Anyway, Happy St. Patrick’s Day everybody.

    I’m so glad you are enjoying the new place and that the washer is no longer sending you running to find a bomb shelter. That thing was loud!

    And yes, she IS a cutie. =) Those cheeks…..
