Study Session on Capitol Hill/Eastern Market ‘hood
I know, I know! In the last entry I said it would be a while before another post, but this was truly unexpected. I thought I was going to a pretty straightforward study session with the girls, and it ended up being the most spoiled study session ever!
After pulling all 4 wisdom teeth on Friday, I have to say that I am recovering very well. There’s absolutely no sign of swelling except for a slight discomfort in my mouth, and some tension. I’ve been very careful eating only soft foods or liquid. But going into Abby’s posh apartment lounge treated with homemade guacamole alla her beau, Andy, and some stuffed peppers, I could not resist eating some real food.
I slowly chewed 4 chips in the span of 20 minutes while making sure nothing slipped into the holes in my mouth. The guacamole was delicious! And I loved all their serving dishes. Very cute, right down to the Elvis Wine Tags. Kristin provided the soothing red. Considering I was on presnidone (for inflammation), I was limited to one glass.
Then came these glorious stuffed peppers that were actually perfect for my sensitive gums. They were so soft, but not mushy. Great recipe! I will have to borrow it. The peppers were stuffed with ground beef, garlic, tomato sauce, brown rice, and maybe something else I am forgetting.
And you’d think that would be enough, but noooooo… can’t end the night without some sugar:
So simple, yet so delicious. These are shamrock sugar cookies, the kind you slice up and bake. I swear, I think Kristin and I split the whole plate except for maybe two for Abby. Then it turned our teeth green. Nice.
BEST REVIEW SESSION EVER! (and so glad the cultural policy midterm is over :D)
