I just noticed how terribly text heavy my blog has been for the last few posts, and since I am actively procrastinating I find this to be super, duper important to rectify right this very minute. Haha. SO. Here are some pictures!

Notes on Baja Fish

I was thinking about the recipe I posted earlier today, and I couldn’t help but wonder “what is baja fish?” Because my fishmonger simply had a little sign that said “baja” fish and told me it was good… so I bought it.

I mean… I know where cod is from. I know what it looks like. I know what tuna is from. I know what that looks like too. I have a general understanding of fish (did I ever tell you I was a waitress at a sushi place?)… but I’ll be honest, “baja” was not something that I was adequately familiar. Plus I wrote this recipe, and I didn’t want to give anyone mis-information (because bad information really sucks).

So… I sat down and went off googling. Turns out… there isn’t really anything called “baja fish.” In fact, I’m still pretty unclear on exactly what fish I ate this morning…

But! I did want to let you guys know… and tell you that I will figure it out and when I do, I’ll update you.

That is all.

Who knew????

Seriously. Who knew that 3 weeks traveling abroad, followed by back to back road trips to help family and friends get settled into new apartments and places would result in an early run-in with the flu? I guess I over did it?

I just returned from Boston on Sunday at 11:00pm after a whirlwind 25 hours of full on crazy. My dear little cousin just moved to Boston to start work a couple weeks ago… and since she has been swamped with work, we planned a quick trip to get her settled. We did 7 hours of bargain hunting on Saturday night and outfitted her with new towels, sheets, a foam mattress topper, mirrors, work suitable clothing, cute shoes, and a million other odds and ends. At the end of the trip it took us 4 trips from my car to unload and unpack. At midnight, we finally had finished, slapped on some crazy party makeup and zipped into little dresses before we were out dancing…. and then we met some random people and partied until the sun came up. Weird? Probably. After a quick nap, J and I were back to bargain hunting to finish outfitting her place. The minute I got her settled, I hopped in the car and drove home as the sun set.

I woke up on Monday feeling a little under the weather. After walking my dog and breaking out into a cold sweat, I determined that I was indeed sick. Fever, chills, and some major crankiness later… I’m feeling better. So. Happy Friday. I’ve slept away the entire week to battle my cold.

And since there has been a serious lack of pictures… here are some:
