Thinking Out Loud: The Late Edition

Life happens.

I planned on getting a post up yesterday, but well, I kinda suck at the whole planning ahead thing. Wednesday, I was just too tired and felt more like eating pizza and watching a movie. And yesterday was spent traveling to see family. By the time I made it home, it was nearly midnight and all I felt like doing was eating pizza 3-minute gnocchi and watching a movie. But since I just couldn’t bear to miss out on a week of my favorite ADD-fostering linkup, I’m up early (for a night shift worker) on a Friday…struggling to write this intro when I should just be thinking OUT LOUD! 😉

So let’s get to it already!


Starting with that 3-minute gnocchi…that I bought two years ago?…that I because I was in desperate need of a quick oh-my-god-get-food-in-my-face-right-now meal after being in the car all day. Topped with a little marinara and some grated parmesan, it was a picture of potato perfection! 🙂

The Fault in Our Stars

I finally got myself to a Redbox the other day to rent The Fault in Our Stars. Verdict? Pretty good…and yes, I sniffed all the way through it. Also, I realized something. It’s been about two months since I finished reading the book and I’ve decided that that’s the perfect amount of time to wait for me to forget enough details to actually enjoy a book-to-movie performance. I understand that they have to leave out certain parts of a book for time purposes, but I’m glad I didn’t tear this one apart like I did The Hunger Games.

Park Fall Leaves

On Tuesday, we had some of the most AHHHH-mazing weather! It’s pretty much been rainy and cold here for a week or more, so when I saw that the temperature was forecasted to reach the high 70’s (21°C), I made sure to take advantage of it…with a FIVE mile hike on The Bike on a Stick trails with nothing but the sound of crunching leaves around me!


And the next day (Wednesday…aka, my lazy bum day), it rained ALL DAY LONG! But hey, my hair looked awesome! And I stayed cozy in the house all day in my new favorite sweater, yoga pants, and fuzzy slippers…ohhh, maybe I should think about switching over to fashion blogging! 😉


Nah, I think food (and this unexplainable need I feel to taste-test every new/different flavored treat out there) is more my thing. With the help of a friend the other day, I sampled all the different Reese’s bars that just happened to be on sale. My top favorite was the sticks…they taste like Reese’s Kit-Kats! Second place went to the Crispy Crunchy bar which was basically chocolate and peanut-covered Crunchy Peanut Butter Bar. Anyone else remember those?

Jet's Bacon & Feta Bread

But the best thing I’ve eaten ALL week, was this BACON AND FETA cheese bread that I ordered from Jet’s Pizza on Monday night…that feed me FOUR times…that literally made me moan and utter obscenities while trying to catch my breath…especially after I ditched the marinara and broke out some ranch dressing for dipping! 😉

How’s the weather been in your neck of the woods?

What’s the best thing you’ve eaten this week?

    Ah! Just when I get over the hunger pains from seeing that cheesy bread on your instagram I run into on your blog!!

    It’s finally starting to feel like fall around here and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Best thing I’ve eaten lately is homemade chicken noodle soup, but after seeing that bread again I might just have to change that. :p

  2. The weather has been pretty bearable! Not tooooo cold just yet, but it did rain off and on yesterday and it might later today!

  3. I kinda think gnocchi looks like grubs. Is that weird?

    Your hair is so beautiful! I love it. 🙂

  4. OMG. I used to live for pizza dipped in ranch. Can I just unsee this? I’m on my period. I’m weak. Help me.

  5. Hi Heather. Have to agree, your hair looked awesome!!! Hope everything ELSE is awesome too. Roz

  6. Normally Vancouver is in the midst of nonstop rain right now, but it is incredibly sunny today and is supposed to stay that way all week! It’s a miracle! Although my hometown just got hit with snow AGAIN…I’m laughing. 🙂

    Best thing I’ve eaten this week = Whole Foods hot bar. Which will be happening again today! But also I want pizza now because yours looks out of this world.

      Oh girl! I’m jealous of your access to Whole Foods…though I will say that my last few experiences with the hot bar have been kinda “meh”. It just isn’t worth it unless they have the cheesy squash casserole. Ha!

      And ugh, don’t remind me of snow. I’d be fine if I lived somewhere that was consistently 75F (24C)! 😉

    I had never had gnocchi until this past week! I loved it. I always see them in the grocery store and think I should give them a try. These look good! Have a great day, Heather! Oh, I love the leaf photo!

  8. Weather in Scotland right now – cold! With a mix of blue sky crisp days and then chucking it down with rain the next! But hey, it’s just the usual for this time of year here, until the snow comes!
    Best thing I have eaten this week… Hmmm… Has to be the steak I had in Saturday night – give this girl a hunk of meat and she is happy!

  9. It’s been cold lately. As in “yes, I know we’re smack dab in the middle of autumn and it’s supposed to be cold but I’m still in denial and don’t want to break out my winter coat” cold. Or maybe the cold is even a-okay but the rain? Not. At. All. If you do get into fashion blogging, Miss lovely locks, I very much hope you’ll design your own collection of what’s dreadfully called ‘homewear’. I suggest some coral tones and ruffles in the mix 😉 .
    I’m not sure it’d beat bacon and feta bread for you but I was pretty pleased with myself when my don’t-know-what-to-eat lunch yesterday turned out better than expected. Brussels sprout and mushroom gratin topped with shredded potatoes and cheese for that Rösti/latke crispy topping. Gah.
    Also, I feel I need to watch ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ again. It was the first time in a very long while I left the cinema crying and didn’t care who saw me.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Awwww! Yeah, I knew I would tear up so I didn’t want to see it in the theater. It’s definitely a watch-at-home-with-a-box-of-tissues kind of movie. That lunch sounds fantastic! You had me with the cheese, but the description of that crispy topping sent me over the top! 🙂

      That’s it! I’m making you a red ruffly Snuggie for Christmas! 😀
