Friday the 13th started off with a bang. Someone smashed Scott’s car windows and broke into his car overnight. There was absolutely nothing in the car to take, but apparently the thieves thought there was.

We woke up to broken glass everywhere and we’re getting estimates on how much it’s going to cost to fix, but we’ll have to satisfy our insurance deductible first.

 When I wrote the post late Thursday about the sprinkles incident and klutz day, and also referenced broken glass, I should have knocked on wood or something because it turned out to be some gnarly broken glass foreshadowing.

There was only one thing that was going to make me feel better:


squares of chocolate

I tried a new recipe and it almost worked. It’s so close to being where I want it, and I could probably post it.

But it’s not quite 100% perfect so I’m going to hold off until I make sure it’s exactly right.

One thing that is exactly right is watermelon. I’ve been eating tons of it and am still in love with every juicy bite.

I made more of the Pumpkin Spiced Brown Rice Tempeh and Cranberry Salad (vegan, gluten free if GF tempeh is used)

It’s actually hot for San Diego. Low 80sF and some humidity, so a quick stir fry made for an easy dinner. Compared to the rest of the country, that’s cool, but for us, it’s toasty and I love it.

If I would have had any Dark Rum Cookies on hand, that would have been dessert.

How was your Friday the 13th?

I’m just glad it’s over.

Are you up to anything fun this weekend?

I’m going to enjoy the nice weather, run outside and get all sweaty and love it, spend time with the family, and try to perfect the chocolate recipe I’m working on.
