This weekend was the one year anniversary of my most badassery event to date.

Tough Mudder!

Most of us do not really hang out as much anymore due to scheduling and other things, but I’ll always have these awesome memories with them because of our camaraderie.

I came home a few days ago only to find a wooden Mallard duck sitting on my bed. Not only was it really random but a little creepy as well.


Turns out it was re-gifted to me by one of my roommates that just moved out. Who would want to give up such a charming piece of decor is a surprise to me.

I haven’t been feeling well this weekend so I have been trying to keep it somewhat low key. I stumbled upon a free Italian cooking and invited one of my favorite people to come with me.


The class was hosted by Delverde pasta company. They started their first US tour in NYC and it was such a success that they decided to come to the best city in the world, San Francisco. Our three Italian cooks were so funny and I feel like they should have their own cooking show.

It was hosted at Alessi‘s flagship store and I also bought a pair of espresso cups to use with my Gran Maestria. No more needing to use shot glasses to drink my morning espresso!


They taught us how to make a zucchini and prosciutto pasta salad with cream sauce from scratch. It was so delicious and I will post the recipe for you one day soon.


Love you Abs and thanks for coming! 🙂 I had to resize the picture because it looked really scary with our heads being so big. If you stare long enough, our eyes will steal your soul.


Now to stop beating around the bush, the highlight of my weekend was of course the season finale of Breaking Bad. I’m still thinking if I was happy with the ending. I’ll let you know when I figure it out. What made the experience even better was me eating San Tungs take-out for dinner.


Anyone that has lived in the city knows that these are like serious crack and the restaurant is one of the few Chinese restaurants that has a 1-2 hour wait every night. Even waiting for them to be ready took over 40 minutes.


So worth it though. Tell me when you come to San Francisco and I will take you.

Good-bye Breaking Bad! Last night was the end of a legacy.


Sorry for not keeping up with everyone’s blog these past few days. I have been all over the place but I’m excited to start reading again tomorrow. I find so much inspiration, funny stories and new information every day because of you guys. Hugs! /end corny

Have you ever attended a cooking class? What did you think of the finale?
