Hot Like Fire

It’s hot as hell outside. It’s about 97℉, but it feels like 110℉. When I got into my car after work today, I almost fell out! The heat overpowered my little air conditioner in the car. I was glad when I walked into my apartment. There my little dog, Ginger, greeted me at the door by running in circles and wagging her little tail. She’s so cute.

I put on another one of my favorite albums from the late 90’s: TLC’s Fanmail. I miss those days: the music and the internet back then. That’s not to say I don’t dig what we have today. I guess you could just say those were my teenage years. There’s just something about those years I want to hold on to and never forget.

I think I’m going to lay down a little later and watch Empire on DVD. Right now, I’m just winding down with some red wine and browsing the net. I needed this drink, honey. It was a long day.

I need to get up and cook, but I don’t feel inspired by what I have on hand. I need to find some new recipes. I’ve been wanting to try a lot of vegetarian pasta dishes, one-pot pastas, and rice bowls. I’m not vegetarian by a long shot, but I have been eating more veggies/fruits the past year and a half. Raw and cooked. I discovered lemon + avocado + greek seasoning + olive oil makes for a bomb salad dressing mixture. It’s my favorite now; I hardly eat my salads with any other dressing.

Two of my favorite YouTubers, the Domestic Geek and MissLizHeart, make a lot of videos on rice bowls and pasta dishes. I just want to try them all! Check them out. They’re inspiring.
