Favorite Things: March

By  |  4 Comments

Hi There!

I can’t believe March has come and gone, it went by so fast. I didn’t have very many favorite things this month, so maybe you can inspire me by leaving a comment with your recommendations for next month. It can be a product you love, a movie, a type of food, or a restaurant.

1) I’m loving the look of the small, brightly colored macaroons that keep catching my eye this month. It seems that every grocery store has started carrying them in the bakery case. They are even on the cover of the March issue of Martha Stewart Living. They certainly look beautiful, and they have a delicate sweetness, kind of like mini pavlova sandwiches. Here’s my dilemma, why are they called macaroons? To me, macaroons are made out of shredded coconut and egg white like these. If you know, let me know.

2) Asparagus has been popping up all over the farmer’s market and grocery store for the past couple of weeks. Do the stalks seem to be bigger than ever, or is it just me? I usually chop off about an inch from the bottom of the stems (they can be a bit tough), arrange them on a sheet pan, pour some avocado oil or walnut oil on top, and add a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Then roast them in the oven at 425 for 20 mins. Pretty tasty.

3) Have you seen Divergent yet? I thought it was good. I haven’t read the book, so I didn’t have any expectations going into it. It’s an interesting story with some action, suspense, and a bit of romantic tension happening.

4) I love this time of year because See’s comes out with its Easter candy. Their chocolate butter eggs are amazing.

5) I’m loving this quote this month. Bad days can be overwhelming sometimes.

    #1, I LOVE See’s Candy! #2, I also LOVE asparagus roasted with oil and salt! I am several months, if not years, behind the trends and what’s happening in the States, so I love this article and blog to get me caught up! The product that I am going to play with this month that you could explore for April is the kettlebell. I’m also stuck in the science fiction genre with my reading, and Ender’s Game is always a wonderful book. I have not seen the movie yet with Harrison Ford, and I am not sure I want to, just because I love the book so much. I’d be interested to know what you think of one or the other. Also, any tips on how to make a dark apartment appear brighter? I have bars and tinting on my windows and aside from turning all the lights on and opening all the doors during the day, I feel like I’m in a cave.

      Abs! I love See’s candy too! There is one right by my house and I try to make myself forget it’s there or else I would go every day. I’ve seen the movie Ender’s Game (I didn’t even know it was a book, how sad is that?), and I thought it was pretty good. I could imagine that the book is probably a million times better, with lots of vivid descriptions of everything that happened. So I’m not sure if the movie would live up to your expectations. Maybe I can do a blog post about lightening up dark apartments, good idea!! Thanks!

    I love the little barnacle’s magic sleep suit! It has been great transitioning him from his swaddle/bassinet to his crib. Also, Specialty’s bakery…their cookies are to die for, and there’s a Peet’s coffee inside each one!
