Quickie: Taste Twice

I cruised through Target this afternoon and a notebook caught my eye. I’ll stick with my treasured Moleskine but I really love the quote on the cover of this one.

“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospection.”

Status: Eat Pray Love

Just finished watching Eat Pray Love. Corny as it may sound, it shared a great deal of wisdom that I need in my life right now… and offered the realization that I absolutely MUST spend 4 months of my life eating my way through Italy!

Status: No Excuses

A whole year + 2 months and this lady is officially funemployed… which takes me back to last August’s post. I REALLY don’t have an excuse but to spread my food love on the regular, now. Looking forward to sharing w. you all! https://nolovemoresincere.com/2010/08/24/no-excuse-blogging/

VDay Din: Crab Cakes + Dill Scalloped Potatoes + Asparagus a la Dre <3

Last Valentine’s Day, Dre outdid himself with delicious fried chicken cordon bleu and asparagus-champagne risotto. This year was even better, as Dre spent the afternoon crafting another impressive dinner. I may let him take the reigns in the kitchen more often!

VDay Bfast: Pecan Bananas Foster French Toast a la Dre <3

Each Valentine’s Day, Dre takes over the kitchen and cooks up his own food love for me. This year was no different as I waited anxiously for breakfast in bed. Mmmm…

Quickie: Marathon Catering

I can’t believe it’s been 10 months still I started at Marathon. I’ve learned so much about how a family-run six-restaurant local chain with successful catering & private event departments functions and thrives. My role began as the Director of Sales & Marketing, but when our event planner left, I was tossed right back into the private events world and juggling many hats. There’s certainly pros and cons to every job, but I truly appreciate the times I get to let my talents shine. With the recent update of our catering menu, I had the opportunity to shoot some photos of the amazing food we deliver to Philadelphia businesses every day. Let’s eat!

I can’t speak of Marathon Catering & Events without a shout-out to my office ladies.
You bring (update: brought) sunshine into each of my work days! Thank you.

Quickie: Grande Order @ Taco Bell

A long night at work last night called for a late fast food run. Thank god for the late night Taco Bell/KFC on 24th & Passyunk so Dre could tempt his health with the Double Down and I could calm a T-Bell craving. As usual, the line was long and slow. This time, however, I could actually excuse it thanks to the amazing sacks of fast-food Mexican that hit the counter soon after. $83.16 + tax later, these dudes walked away with 42 soft tacos & 42 beefy 5-layer burritos. Cheers, men, but I feel sorry for any women you’re going home to bed to!
