Too bad it’s not the year of the turtle

I saw these cuties on my walk with Christy this morning.

Right after that Abe and I headed to “our office.” A mountain of computer work to do, and I didn’t want to be at home all day.

Paid “the rent” first.

Turkey sandwich with cranberry sauce and mayo. Side of greens and vinaigrette.

Standard stuff. Had a bite of Abe’s veggie panini, which was better…

…probably because it got pressed/plated. They didn’t recommend heating mine, so I ate it out of the container.

This little nook reminds me elementary school!

Perfect for the Year of the Rabbit too. I already celebrated Chinese New Year food-wise yesterday (with Seth Rogen, remember?) but if you’re looking for some recipes, here are a few from my Mommy!

Check out my interview on Eat Sunday Dinner today!

    Turtles are probably the only reptiles I will ever agree on being cute. We used to have those tiny baby green turtles. I used to carry mine around like a pet rock. Don’t ask, I know I’m weird. Happy New Year!

    Happy Lunar New Year!

    Whenever I see turkey and cranberry sandwiches I think of the ones Cosi puts out every year at Thanksgiving. I used to order them and pull off the turkey, then eat the stuffing + cran!

    I appreciate the links to you mom’s recipes, but I would much rather knock on her door and say I was hungry. Think she would mind? :)
