Magnets & Booze

Oh weekends, why are you so fleeting?

Check out my awesome octopus magnets. During Springfest, my dear friend Melissa, accidentally broke the cute little guy on the bottom. Unbeknowst to her, we glued the little guy back together as good as new. Unbeknowst to me, Melissa was wracked w/ guilt and went on-line to "replace" ol' Bluey. And now I have a fricking awesome pod of octupi on my fridge. WOO HOO!!

Sexybeast & I headed up north to the Adirondacks for Saturday/Sunday. We were tooling around Gabriel's trying to decide what we wanted for dinner. And bright light shone down upon me!

Check it!!! Gabriel's had Lindemann's lambics w/ a specially made lambic glass!!!! OH MY GOLLY!!! All for the low low price of 20 smackers! It came w/ apple & cherry flavours. Nom nom!

And I really fucking out did myself this time. I made summer rolls! I was really worried about using rice paper but it turns out it's incredibly easy. Just make sure you have plenty of hot water on hand. The filling is lettuce, sprouts, carrots, green onions, cilantro, mint & rice noodles. Simple, crisp & delicious. Not featured is the awesome dipping sauce to accompany the rolls, spicy and flavourful. However, you will note that I didn't roll the rolls in a very pretty fashion.

At first I thought those were spider magnets, and I got chills - and not in a good way.

I'm glad they're octupi. :)

Oooh, you DID outdo yourself with those summer rolls. Sounds yummy.

I love those magnets. They're weird but cool.
