There are some things in every woman’s life that she just knows. Things like if it’s going to be a good hair day if certain pants make your butt look big, or when the only thing that will hit the spot is a piece of chocolate.
There are also certain things about a woman’s body that you know when they are off and when you need to start asking yourself questions and no longer blame the fact that they are off because of the magical disarray that is your life. Questions like how long have things been off? Or how careful have you and your pirate husband been about protection? And most importantly asking yourself when you are going to get the courage up to just take a test and get the answers to said questions? All of this and more were running through her mind as Emma showered, dressed, kissed her boys goodbye and drove away from their home by the sea.
When Emma opened the door to Granny’s the smell of frying bacon and percolating coffee hit her in the face, causing her throat to tighten and her stomach to roll. “Breathe deeply, in through the mouth, slowly out through the nose,” she murmured softly as she made her way to the back booth where her mother waited for her. "Get something into your stomach fast,“ she continued just as she reached her mom and baby brother and slid across the seat.
"Emma, I’m so happy you could meet me this morning.”
“Sure, mom, I’m starving where’s the waitress?”
Snow frowned at the anxious tone in Emma’s voice, “Here she comes now. Go ahead and order honey.”
Emma looked up into the expectant face of Candy or Mandy, one of the Hubbard twins, she wasn’t sure which as she could never tell them apart.
“Good morning ladies, what can I get you?”
Instead of ordering her usual, Emma looked down at the menu, “I’m starving. I’ll have a three- egg omelet with ham, cheese, peppers and mushrooms, a glass of orange juice, a short stack of pancakes with butter-rich maple syrup and a bowl of strawberries with whipped cream.” She finished her order, shut her menu and looked up into the face of her mother who was sitting there with her mouth hanging open.
“Emma,” she hesitated, “did you just order for the table?”
Morning run out of the day! (3 day streak!- need to make it a habit again!)
After the run I went home and made Holly an egg sandwich to take to work! Went upstairs and got ready for work! Instead of going to work I wish I was going to Disney! 😊😂 grabbed some coffee and off I went!
When things settled a few minutes ago I made myself some breakfast! Have to jump start that metabolism! Eggs, Cheese, ham, green chili - it is delicious!
Hope y'all are having a great start to your day!!!
I, Anndi, am a serious foodie. About 99% of the reason I ever leave my house is to try new food. Since the city is jam packed with restaurants on every corner, it’s hard to know which ones are truly worth your hard-earned coins. Well I am here to help you! Below is a list of my Top 5 Favorite Places to Eat in Paris.
1. Gumbo Yaya
Fried Chicken? Collard Greens? HUSH PUPPIES?! By far my favorite place to eat in Paris and it has nothing to do with french food. With a cool hip-hop ambiance and cookout style decor, Gumbo Yaya is a great relaxed place to dine with friends. In all honesty, it’s not incredibly authentic soul food (having a southern family I’m a harsh critic), but the fried chicken is BANGIN’ and it beats going to a french KFC any day. It’s fairly priced, with a good sized portion meal being between 11-15 euros.
Pro Tip: Get the Big Homie or the Chicken&Waffle Burger. Thank me later.
3 rue Charles Robin, Metro stop Colonel Fabien (line 2)
If you have never had Ethiopian cuisine before, just know it is entirely TOO LIT. Food full of overwhelmingly savory flavors that is meant to be shared among a large group and eaten with your hands (Take lots of napkins). From the authentic ethiopian artwork, multi-colorful tapestries, and mesmerizing east african music, this spot bathes in authenticity. The best part is easily the free mystery wine you get before your meal. It will have you feeling good in no time. But if you feel like paying for alcohol, I would try Tej which is a wine brewed with honey.
Pro Tip:Ask for more sourdough bread. You’re going to need it.
4 rue Sauffroy, Metro Stop Brochant (line 2)
Oh, HolyBelly. Are we in old town Paris or gentrified Williamsburg, Brooklyn? It took two times of waiting in line for over an HOUR until I actually tried your savory goodness. But boy was it worth the wait! This French-American spot, located at the heart of the 10th, is a hipster haven and has perhaps the best brunch in town. With its impeccable attention to plate presentation, it has the most “Instagram-able” meals in the city. If you order the Savory Stack you will have dreams about it several weeks after.
Pro Tip: Try to get in line before 11am. After that its all over champ.
19 Rue Lucien Sampaix , Metro stop Jacques Bonsergent (line 8)
4. Churrasquiera Galo
This portuguese restaurant has a pretty underwhelming decor and even less impressive service. It’s small and has the community-style seating I loathe quite dearly. BUT the food is awesome!! The portion size is super generous by European standards and you can get a full, hearty meal for less than 13 euros! What’s best is that its located only a 8 min walk away from the Sacré-Coeur in Montmartre, the highest point in the city. It may not be phenomenal in all respects but the food makes it worth a lunch stop after sight-seeing.
Pro Trip:Only go if super hungry. Or wear stretchy pants.
69 rue du Dunkerque, Anvers (line 2), Barbes-Rochechouart (line 4)
5. La Crêperie Bretonne
My absolute favorite french meal is crêpes and galettes. Sweet or savory. I will take them however I can get them. PLEASE resist the temptation to try your first crêpe from a cheap fast food hole-in-the-wall in Saint-Michel and instead opt for one of the many tasty sit-downs on Rue du Montparnasse. This long, narrow street is lined with nothing but restaurants that specialize in this french delicacy. The most popular of these is La Crêperie Bretonne. I personally like to top my crepes with ham, egg, cheese, mushroom, and spinach but you don’t have to start or stop there! You will be overwhelmed by the options. So go here! Your taste buds will thank you for it.
Pro Trip: Cider is the best pairing with galettes (savory crepes). Highly recommend!
56 rue de Montparnasse, Metro Stop Edgar Quinet (line 6), Vanvin (line 4), or Gare Montparnasse (line 4, 6, 12, & 13)
I flew back to the States on a business trip yesterday and am spending Easter weekend with my parents out in the country. Jetlag woke me up around 5am this morning and I was starving, but didn’t want to wake the rest of the house by going down to the kitchen. So I decided to unpack the snacks I brought back from Japan, which included this bag that was perfect for breakfast… Eggs Benedict Tortilla Chips! Not sure why they’re not labeled as Doritos, but I have to say, these were definitely some of the best tasting chips I’ve ever eaten out of Japan!! The egg, cheese and ham flavors are all quite prominent, and there’s even a hint of lettuce to them, which they even call out on the packaging! I’m truly amazed at how they so perfectly captured the complexity of a dish like eggs benedict in the form of a corn chip!
Here is a masterpost of all the dishes in Starpop, including satiation/health/affection values, ingredients required and anything needed to make pre-cooked ingredients (like fried egg requiring egg, for example).
This list is as of posting probably about 97% completed. It does not include temporary dishes (such as the B.A.P members’ favourite foods). If a dish in this list is not present in your recipe book it is most likely because you haven’t made 10 of the “lower-tier” dish (check the dish listed above the one you don’t have).
If you have uncovered any dishes not listed here, the ingredients of any “????” dishes or have any corrections; please send me an ask and I will edit it.
I will also insert this list into an Excel spreadsheet that can be accessed here.
