I am so over eggplant parm.

As a vegetarian, this is like…sacrilege of some kind because it is basically the token vegetarian option at every restaurant EVER. So obviously I’m supposed to adore it and be so excited that someone had the decency to consider my dietary preferences when making their menu.

::shakes head:: Not impressed.

new apartment

1. Welcome to our new apartment! Of course now it’s filled with five million cookbooks (not an exaggeration), the.boy’s tie collection (also quite large and in charge), and a very large farm table in front of the window that I spent a small fortune on.
