1. Being able to make my first banoffee pie. It wasn’t super great, could be more balanced, but enough to make me want to make it again. One of my favorite desserts (of which there are many to be honest), made better when put in the freezer and eaten like ice cream.
2. Connecting with a colleague over musicals. Made me miss the theater, and watching talented people act and sing and dance. Reiterated the need to watch The Book of Mormon, and now adding Hedwig and the Angry Inch to the list. Who knows when theater will be back, but I will be filling the seats.
3. Butter Bakery’s fat macs. Ordered a box of these yummy macarons, and it made me feel a bit more civilized than usual. What is it about macarons that needs a nice cup of tea and a quiet corner?
4. Minari. It felt quietly depressing, but also real. Steven Yeun was beautiful in it. Then again, Steven Yeun is beautiful, period.
What are you grateful for this week?
