How is it December, the END of December, and I have baked ZERO things?
Oh sure, I can use my graduate apps and my and just all around adulating to blame for my lack of time cozied up to my oven, but that would just be excuses. If y’all did not know, I used to be a baking FIEND. In high school, I pretty much baked every weekend. Some standout were Smitten Kitchen’s gingersnaps and a clearly not gluten-free/paleo/vegan banana bread recipe from the back of a Land o’ Lakes box. And regard of what healthified recipe I would give to my parents or siblings, they would still just want the banana bread from “the back of the box.”
At least they were easy to please!

It’s safe to say that I freaking LOVE lunch!
Most people say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I personally get most excited about lunch. People who say “I was too busy, I forgot to eat lunch”… I don’t get you. I am always waiting for my clock to tick down to 1:30 PM, for me to bust out my prepacked Tupperware, and shout, “YES! LUNCH TIME!” But maybe I’m the only weirdo who eats breakfast and then immediately starts counting down the hours ’til lunch?
Anyone? Anyone at all?

This this this this thisssss.
I am eating this noodle bowl for L & D every day right now and I guess you could say it’s going alright. I just freaking love noods, so the idea of having coconutty goodness mixed with squashy goodness mixed with noods.
Oh yeah, get this straight up in my face.

These pancakes are a bit life changing.
I know I’ve touched on this before, but like, I am obsessed with breakfast food. No joke. I want all the breakfast foods, sweet or savory, all the time. Eggs, pancakes, waffles, hash. You say the words and I am SO. GAME. What makes that hard is most breakfast food is hard to take to work, ya know? And I am at work for a considerable portion of my week. So even if I want breakfast food for lunch (aka, that is most days) it is damn near impossible to make my dreams a reality.
If you’ve ever had a cold fried egg, you now exactly what I am talking about.

Aww yeah it is pizza time!
Isn’t pizza day the best day of the week? Friday was usually my family’s pizza day. My mom was too tired to cook by the end of the week, so we would call what I still think is the BEST pizza in the country (that’s right, in little old South Jersey I have found pizza that absolutely crushes any pie I’ve had in NYC) But hey, I’m all about not limiting pizza Friday to just Friday. Actually you know what the best day of the week would be for pizza day? How about everyday!
A girl can dream.

I bring you sunshine in a dish.
And I know that ANYONE would be totally down with eating something that has the title of SUNSHINE in a dish, don’t you. How could this possible be bad right? After a season of grain bowls and polenta, I am TOTALLY down with eating my greens.
Actually to be honest I am ALWAYS down with eating my greens.

March can be considered a tale of two months
On the one hand, there is all that beer and Irish potatoes (oh YES). Ugh seriously, I could dream about the bombardment of coconut and cinnamon Irish potatoes. And, after about 8 weeks of dieting, this is usually where a lot of people decide to forgo that protein shake for chocolate cake. Now, you might think it is bizarre that I am pushing for chocolate cake. But I like to keep it real with y’all and it can’t be any realer than a slice of molten lava cake.
Oh yeah. That ooze. Come to mama.

Does the word poke remind anyone else of Pokemon?
The 90’s kid in me is praying y’all know what Pokemon is.
When I was a kid I was obsessed with Pokemon. Now, I know I have said I have been obsessed with a LOT of things on this blog. But 6-year-old Sarah would slap me silly if I did not try to covey to you the extent I was OBSESSED with Pokemon. I had everything. Cards, VHS tapes, my own Pokedex, stuffed Pokemon, video games. I even had the awesome yellow Game Boy Color that was a Pikachu Game Boy.
The nerd alert was alive and well in this case.
