How quickly the weekend comes to an end. How is it already Monday? I find that if I have a low-key weekend, it seems to go by faster than if I’m really busy. Seems like it’d be the opposite, doesn’t it? My weekend was mostly focused on home improvement. Now that all the chaos in my life has died down some, it’s much easier to tackle these home improvement projects. We’re doing it little by little. There is quite a bit of work to be done. Our first order of business was the master bedroom.
On Saturday, Jason and I went to the Rooms to Go Outlet and purchased a bedroom suite and a new mattress. Shopping makes me hungry, so I threw together some random stuff for dinner. Trader Joe’s Gigantic Beans over rice with a side of mushrooms sauteed in garlic and butter. I’m not a big butter person, but I do love the way it tastes with mushrooms. This entire portion maybe had a 1 tsp of butter in it. A little goes a long way, especially when you’re not used to it.
I’d never had these Gigantic Beans before and I thought they were sort of weird. Not the beans themselves, they were good, but the tomato sauce that they were in was really oily. I think I’d be better off just buying some Great Northern Beans and adding my own sauce.
Our bedroom set was delivered yesterday and there is a problem. The bed is ridiculously high. We got a new mattress which has a pillow top and it’s like you need a ladder to get into the bed. Jason called Rooms to Go and they are going to exchange it for a low-profile box frame which hopefully will help. Poor Murphy tried to get in the bed with us last night and fell.
Yesterday afternoon, while doing errands, my friend texted me asking if I wanted to go get Ethiopian food with him and his wife. I’d never tried it before so I was game.
We went to Desta. Between the three of us, we got two Vegetarian Combos and the Tomato Fit Fit and shared it. It was really good. I wish I’d brought my camera. I actually really liked the injera bread that you scoop the food up with. Now to make Jason a convert. He’s tried it once, at a different restaurant, and didn’t like it.
Have you ever had Ethiopian food?
