I’ve been incredibly negligent on this blog and I apologize. It has been quite crazy the past week or so. Once I booked my trip, I just spent a lot of time at work super busy. I even brought home my laptop this weekend to get some work done. Did I do work? No. Of course not. And guess what? My trip to Chicago is tomorrow! Am I packed? Also no. I used to freak out about trips and I used to pack super early. The last two trips, I have been packing like the day before the trip. Bad bad bad. But I do have a very concise packing list so maybe that’s why I am not worried. Okay I lied, it is now 6 pm and I have to pack and do some work for tomorrow. I like to work under pressure but this is a bit too crazy even for me.
I hope the weather in Chicago will be on my side. Although, I think the weather will be very similar to Hawaii. A lot has happened this week alone. Yesterday was my birthday and what a wonderful day it was. I got to spend time with good friends and family. I have an awesome dinner and received incredibly thoughtful gifts. It was truly a blessed birthday and I want to thank everyone who made it wonderful, I really appreciate it.
Also, my iPad 2 broke this past week! I don’t know how many of you have a tablet out there but I realized just how dependent I am on it this week. I couldn’t stand it! I took it into a place for an estimate on repair and it was quoted for $200. That was a bit too steep for my pockets, especially for a tablet that will be outdated in the soon future.
Well, let’s cap this post off with a picture of food. Although this picture might sick some of you guys out. 🙂
Ingredients: Mini naan, mayonnaise and wasabi base, prepared natto, cheese and nori. I used a pizza white cheese (if I had provolone, I would have used that). I toast it in the toaster oven for a few minutes until it’s warmed through and the cheese melts. Then I hit it with some shredded teriyaki nori and bon appetit! I really like it and this is coming from someone who used to hate natto.
