Tonight was an attempt at being the (half) Greek girl I am. I wanted to make Dolmades! (Stuffed Grape Leaves).
After hunting down a can of grape leaves, buying herbs like fresh mint, and calling my brother for advice, I was ready to go. Unfortunately, this recipe posting will have to wait.
What it should look like:
What mine looked like:
Uhhh yeah. I'm gonna have to take a rain check on posting that recipe. Clearly rolling a grape leaf ain't as easy as it looks.
Instead, I'm gonna tell you what's next. And why my posts might be less frequent (but more awesome!) this week.
I'M GOING TO CANCUN!!!!!!!!!
SPRING BREAK 2011!!!!!!!!
Ant'nee and I are taking a little vacation which includes a good friend from college's destination wedding on Saturday.
It's gonna be a lot like this:
Or possibly not. We're spending our first day / night in Tulum, Mexico, which is a smaller beach town with Mayan ruins. Then we'll go to an all inclusive in Cancun where we can hang out with other Americans, pay American prices, and feel exactly like we never left the states!
Jokin' aside, I'm really looking forward to sleeping in and sitting around the beautiful beach. While I tend to like more out of the way and active vacations, I think drinking a Mojito on the beach is just what the doctor ordered for this Bunny and her hardworkin' dude.
I'm sure this place has a fitness center so I'll be trying to build mileage as promised! No idea if that will work or not! I didn't set up any guest bloggers because I am lazy, but I will try to write you unless we get kidnapped. If you don't see a blog entry for 10 days, contact your local congressman.
And remember, in Cancun, you can be whoever you want to be and what happens there stays there (and on the blog). For this week, I'm a 21 year old college cheerleader named Tina. I'll letcha know how that all goes ;).
To entertain you in the meantime, the lovely SkinnyRunner is back from her long time away! I'm pumped - my morning reading is back!
