Sunday evening, Elisabeth and I made a new meal – polenta bake with spinach and mushrooms. I found the recipe in one of the vegan cookbooks that Elisabeth had checked out for me before covid happened. I remember trying polenta for the first time in college when my favorite Spanish professor treated me to lunch. I really liked it but had only made it once or twice. I get Trader Joe’s frozen polenta fairly often because that’s easy and tasty, but making it myself, no, only rarely. So I tried again on Sunday and it turned out okay. I’m not sure I love the meal but I am proud for trying something new.
While our polenta was baking, Elisabeth made us our very own Disneyland Dole Whips! Oh my gosh, I think they may have been better than Disneyland’s version and I will be requesting she make them again sometime. It was so amazingly perfect and delicious. We sat outside and enjoyed the late afternoon.
Yesterday we got a package from Elisabeth’s mom which included our masks! I now feel like I’ll be way more fashionable whenever I go out. If I ever go out again… They’re definitely more comfortable than the mask I made for myself the other day. Plus, one of my rubberbands snapped off my homemade mask so it’s unusable right now anyway.
Today I video chatted with my coworkers for social hour where I showed off Pippin and then I stayed late at work for my monthly committee meeting. That means I get off work early on Friday. Yay!
I chatted with my meetup friends this evening for a bit and am now going to read. ❤
