I am a huge fan of long weekends. This one day more makes such a big difference for me because it gives me much extra time. I sleep in every day and start slowly. Yesterday morning I had my first coffee while still lying in bed. And my second coffee shortly afterwards in Boston’s Public Market – together with a “maple glazed bacon donut”. This was my first ever sweet donut with pieces of bacon on top, and it was so delicious. Big love! The whole day yesterday revolved around food. I had a long list of things I wanted to buy. After the weekly market I also went to Trader Joe’s. Since I buy all my vegetables and fruits on the market, and my bread and cheese etc. in the middle eastern shop there, I hardly ever enter a supermarket. So going to Trader Joe’s was like a special treat, and I walked through every aisle to get an overview. Of course I ended up buying way more than I had intended. Winter could come and bring some blizzards, I wouldn’t starve. The upside is that I cook many of my favorite dishes, which also makes me happy. I am definitely really good when it comes to a healthy diet this January. Oh, well, let’s not count the bacon donut. Or the pecan pie I am planning to make tomorrow. I better go to sleep soon because my memory doesn’t seem rested enough.
