Phew! I am finally done! I am sure all of the students out there are rejoicing with me as well! I am done with school, marking and lesson planning. Well, that is.. until next year.

But until then, this means that for the next 2 months, I can stay at home in my pjs, read all day and make elaborate smoothies for breakfast. Or maybe even smoothie parfaits as this post would suggest.

This is going to be a great summer.

Well. Look who's back!

I know it has been quiet here for a couple of weeks, but I just came back from a well deserved vacation. I was in Japan y'all! And now Japan has officially become one of my favorite places in the world. It was very hard getting me to leave.

I just had the best day yesterday!

First of all, it was a long weekend here in Canada, so I had a very nice and relaxing day. Woke up with nothing to do but drink coffee, enjoy the sunshine and... well, I still needed to mark papers, but at least I could do it on a relaxing manner. 

I also got to make a dinner takes longer to make than my typical 30 minute meals. Which, at times like these, is a real luxury for me.

I predict that it will be pasta every night at my house until the end of the school year.

This is what has been on my menu for the past few days: lemon garlic pastaspaghetti a la homer and chicken and salsa pasta. What do they have in common?

Well other then the fact that they are all made with pasta, they are all ready in under 30 minutes. Because when you have stacks of papers to mark, you need to save as much time as possible.

Thursdays: my one day off a week. My one day to have my oven turned on the entire day and bake until my kitchen looks like a bakery.

Why do I do this to myself? Well, this way I can get 3 months off for the summer. 3 months of making ice cream, travelling the world and spending days at home in my pajamas. Sounds like the dream.

Having an abundance of pepperoni in my house doesn't need to be a bad thing.

I mean, after having this pepperoni pizza for about the umpteenth time this past few weeks, it might be time to switch things up a little bit. Maybe calling back to my university days of having grilled cheese sandwiches for every meal?

I know. I like my thinking too.
