My favorite recipe

Sweet, Spicy & Sticky Chicken

So. This recipe is I think my favorite recipe, because although I found it here, I've changed it up a lot to make it my own. We probably eat this like three times a month.

La Ha Lunch Break

Pepper plant

Plant

Adam and I bought this plant when we picked out our Christmas tree, and it didn't do too well in our dark apartment, so I brought it to my sunny office at work and now it's super happy! It's even starting to flower (but I don't think you can tell in this picture).

The peppers are edible, but I don't know what to do with them. I'll probably dry them and used them as extra-spicy crushed red pepper.

Stock Exchange Cupcakes

Cupcake

To celebrate being on the NY stock exchange for a whole bunch of years, my company gave us cupcakes the other day. I was confused at first, but I finally figured out that the thing on top is a stock exchange bell.

His name is Batman

It's cheaper...



This is one of my favorite (is that the right word? I don't think so...) billboards. Sorry the lamppost is in the way.

Tornado Warning




















I took this on my way to work...we had a huge storm that night and a Tornado Warning in North Scottsdale.

SO TIRED


























I feel asleep on my couch last night with a Pita in my hand...I woke up at 4am, finished eating it and went right back to sleep...so sad.

Look at those bows. They're ridiculous, but secretly I think they're cute.

Self Portrait




















I especially like the unicorn, and that he is accompanied by Wall-E and Eva.

Mystical Van




















So, went to the 24-hour 5 & Diner around 12:30am with some friends. This van was in the parking lot when we pulled up. The owner was in the 5 & Diner. How did I know who it was? Well, not only did he have a matching vest with a Tiger on the back, but his own self portrait is painted on the back of the car...you'll see.

Birdcage Ornaments

Bird Cage Ornaments

I ordered these after I saw them on Mighty Goods. I don't know what I'm going to do with them yet but I don't think I want to just use them as Christmas decorations...

Fixed Gear Bike Race




















There was a fixed gear bike race from Downtown/Central Phoenix to Tempe last night. The finish line was at a movie theater called Madcap. They had a double feature of 2 short films about fixed gear bikes called "London to Paris" and "The Revival." I didn't do the race, obviously, since I don't have a bike, and I haven't ridden one in like 10 years, but I did go to the films.

Paninis

Paninis

Adam's parents sent us a panini maker, so I tried it out with this recipe and OMG they were so good. (Except I couldn't find ciabatta bread at Safeway.)

Practical Art Show


























I went to an art show at Practical Art last night. The show was "My Beautiful City," by local artist Catherine Slye. Her work was awesome. She started by taking photographs of the city, and then using those to draw small scale sketches, which she then sewed onto painted fabrics and papers.

I couldn't contain myself, either.

Container store jewelry stand

I bought this last week at The Container Store, where I spent waaaay too much money on organizers. But seriously, fantastic place, right?
