Have you ever had a meal or bought something from the store and thought to yourself, “I should learn how to make that”.
A few months ago, I was shopping and found a new frozen meal that became a fave – Spinach and ricotta “meatballs” with linguine. It was so tasty! And since it’s meatless, I was surprised and happy to know it was just as filling, with lots of flavor. So good, I knew I needed to find an easy recipe to make this on my own.
It’s been a while since I tried a new recipe, so I went to the store, bought the ingredients, and gave it a go.
Does your city / area host a Restaurant Week? It’s a great way to visit new places or try out popular restaurants for a cool price of $35 (3-course dinner) or $22 (lunch)! Found an article about the history.
Tuesday night, I met up with my friend (who just moved into the area), and walked over to The Wharf, the new, vibrant section in Southwest DC (only a few blocks away from the Waterfront metro station). We didn’t have a set location to eat dinner and catch up, but we found out Officina was participating in DC Restaurant Week, so that’s where we ended up.
According to its’ website, Officina is an Italian-inspired culinary collective. I liked the ambiance. By the time we left, it was full of patrons, visiting over dinner and drinks.
Since we didn’t have a reservation, we sat in the cafe / bar section, which was fine.
Happy Monday! Over the weekend, our area (and other states) received the first snow of the year. I’m not a big fan, but it does look pretty. Since I knew inclement weather was approaching, I thought about getting my nails done. While shopping late Friday night, I scrapped that idea, opted for doing it myself.
I checked out Pinterest for inspiration, and saw a few pics for black and gold nails. Decided to take that route. Check below to see what I did.

New year, new ideas, new ways to get things done.
As a creative and freelancer, I’ve realized through trail and error, that it’s better for me to have a couple of planners/notebooks to store specific work-information. I’m weird but I have a main planner and a separate notebook, and I use them for different reasons. I know that if I don’t write it down, it won’t get done.
When I received an email from PurpleTrail about collaborating, I took the opportunity to check out their website that feature custom planners. I’m glad I did.
We made it, friends. Happy New Year!
2018 was a doozy, right? Good times? Bad times? Seemed like the year zoomed by, but at the same time, dragged along.
But here we are. What are you going to do this year?
