Eating -- Nachos. I crave nachos all the time. And I'm not even too picky either -- Willy's, Los Bravos, microwave at my house -- as long as it's cheesy and crispy, I am here for it.
Drinking -- Cold Pressed Green Juice. I got a juicer for Christmas and I love, love fresh juices. I don't have a lot of recipes. I just throw in what I have in my fridge -- kale, celery, carrots, apples, oranges, ginger, whatever I got. I'm looking forward to tomatoes. I made a mistake in running a bunch of limes through it for margaritas because the bitter pulp was processed with the juice making the mix far too tart. I have learned that I need to peel them Barefoot Contessa style before processing them.
Also, I am drinking tequila. Because it's Tequila Season.
Watching -- Feeling the early 00s nostalgia, I watched all six seasons of Gossip Girl. I soaked up all the soapy goodness and then texted my friends about it.
Also, baseball. After a grueling lockout and the disappointment of losing Freddie Freeman, Atlanta Braves baseball is back! The problem is games played in town are blacked out. As a result, I am watching the scores on my phone and then highlights the next day. What's a girl gotta do to get season tickets?
Listening -- Books. I gave up podcasts for Lent, exchanging them for audiobooks. I have "read" Paper Ghosts and We're All the Same in the Dark by Julia Heaberlin, The Turnout by Megan Abbott, Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia, The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel A van der Kolk, and Happy Days by Gabrielle Bernstein. My Audible app is hot, hot, hot.
Reading -- How to Write a Mystery: A Handbook From the Mystery Writers of America, edited by Lee Child and Laurie R. King. It's fueling my writing fire.
Playing -- I downloaded the New York Times Crossword Puzzle app, which means I am knocking out a puzzle a day, as well as the Spelling Bee, and the mini puzzles.
