Ten things I'm looking forward to this week

(Not doing a ten things that are making me happy right now, because there are not ten things that I could put on this list. It is Monday. It is raining. Ugh)

1) GLEE Tuesdays 
Is an awesome tradition that is beginning to make dinner and hang out with my  friends Paul and Julie.  We make good food, drink some wine, and watch Glee. What could be better?

2) Getting burgers with Tammy at Good Stuff Eatery in DC on Wednesday!
We've been trying to get together to do this for months! I'm so excited to go down and try the awesome burgers. and toasted marshmallow milkshake. And hanging out with Tammy!

3) Seeing the family this weekend! 
My cousin Kelly and her insanely cute kid are going to be visiting from Rhode Island, and it's been forever since I've seen them. Plus, I haven't been home in a while, and it'll be good to relax.

4) Going to Live Art for the first time!
My cousin Billy does this thing called Live Art at a bar, where he creates art, and people buy it. ( I don't think I'm explaining this very well...) but  it's been going on for a few years, and I've never been in town when one was happening, and I'm really excited to go.

5) Menu Planning for when I go down to visit my grandma.
She's goingt to teach me how to make pitzelles, and I'm going to do some awesome cooking for her- Risotto with seafood, roast chicken, cookies, roasted beet salad, curry chicken salad... the possibilites are endless!

6) Wedensday Day off!
I worked Saturday, so my comp day is Wednesday. I am going to spend the day sleeping in, doing laundry, and going down to DC to get burgers with Tammy. Woo, day off!

7) Getting some time to work on crocheting.
Sidenote: if anyone has any ideas for crocheted food items, please let me know! I am always looking for new things to figure out how to do.

8)  Working on my Rub recipe for Chincoteague this year.
 Things, they are a-changin' ! I will not be defeated again. Victory will be mine. sweet, porky victory will be mine. and it begins, as all good things begin, with homemade barbecue sauce. oh yes.

9) Writing a blog post about the sweet things I've made lately
Including Smitten Kitchen's brown butter salted rice crispie treats, Espresso cake with espresso frosting. and the ten million variations on the Compost cookie. (p.s. I love to make compost cookies)

10) Reasearching some play ideas for Iron Crow's upcoming season.
We had a company meeting last night that was really awesome! I'm so excited about the upcoming shows and awesomeness.  (especially the staged reading of And Tango Makes Three that Sarah is doing)
