Bougie Girl in the Kitchen: Toga Party Game Night!

This past Saturday, I had a blast kickin' it with friends playing board games, laughing, and of course munching down on some tasty snacks. I kept my food contribution simple with a bit of a kick.

1/4 pound of sliced Turkey
1 tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
8 slices of bagel thins
8 slices of Provolone cheese (or 4 slices torn in half)
Cracked black pepper

Pour the tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil into a small sized sauce pan over a medium flame. Heat for 3 minutes. Place the turkey into the pan and stir in the Balsamic vinegar. Cook for and additional 3 minutes. Remove the turkey from the pan and place on a paper-towel lined plate to drain. Sprinkle cracked black pepper over the turkey.

Next, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Brush on Extra Virgin Olive Oil onto the bagel slices. 
Place  the  Provolone cheese slices on top of the bagel thins. Place the bagel thins on a foil lined cookie sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes.

Remove the cookie sheet from the oven. Place on a cooling rack for 5 minutes. Place the turkey between two bagel thins (sandwich style) and slice them in half.

I served them as half sandwiches. These tasty treats were hit with party goers!

Divatosity: Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
