hello from a very sleepy brooklynite! today was a 5 am morning at work, and it's now past midnight and for some reason i can't fall asleep, so i thought i'd muster a quick post.
this morning at work i was trying to think of what to make for dinner tonight - a friend came over and i was hoping to try to come up with something without having to make a grocery run. i remembered i had some frozen beet gnocchi and settled on it; i then thought about the beet tart i made monday and the phrase "beet week" popped into my head and i had the sudden association of that sex and the city episode when it's fleet week and the girls are walking down the street and start seeing sailors and samantha is all slutty-eyed about it. except in my scenario it would be beets that she was all hot and bothered by. the thought made me snort a little bit. i don't think anyone heard me over the mixer.
also used up some red beet i'd cubed in the fridge and the last of the leeks. i spun a fresh apple/kiwi sorbet last night, too, so that served as dessert. i love kiwi seeds. they have this tangy crunch.
i've been looking for an excuse to use these egg cups forever. this seemed as good an occasion as any.
finally picked up some dry cleaning yesterday and in it was this dress, one of my favorites. it also happens to be somewhat beet-colored. just sayin'.
dress (top): thrifted in portland
skirt (actually also a dress): h&m. i tuck the top inside and wear it as a skirt - i really prefer it that way.
shoes: thrifted in camden, NJ
belt: thrifted in chicago
purse: a vintage hat box sam gave me. thrifted.
all right. i'm going to attempt sleep before dragging myself out of bed in a few hours. sleep tight, everyone!
