Doesn’t my knee look extra bendy? Hot yoga man, it’ll get ya.
I attended a blogger happy hour last night at Aviary where a group of us got to taste a mix of their cocktails and appetizers, I felt lucky. As much as I want to like other spirits, I really prefer vodka over any others, so I tried the one night in bangkok and I think it was a favorite. Good depth of flavors while staying refreshingly light.
Brussel sprout nachos, japanese eggplant, shigoku oysters, pork sliders were among some of the dishes brought to our table to taste. Everything was delicious, and the atmosphere was light and friendly. Go ahead, try it out, I know you want to.

This blouse is like butter, I can’t turn down a silky smooth blouse, ever. And these jeans, these jeans are just perfectly casual but easily dressed up. Channeling Ashley Olsen here, do you see it? No? Use your imagination.
My clean, beautiful black and white giraffe iPhone case (whom I affectionately refer to as “Nathan”) has been dropped one too many times and is starting to crack in the corners, so I am on the hunt for his replacement. These are a few of my favorites at the moment, but the search is far from over. Please weigh in!

While I am a vegetarian, like I’ve mentioned many times before, this BBQ sauce is delicious and can be used for marinating chicken or steak or tossed in a salad. The balsamic base gives a nice punch to the sauce and makes the flavor somewhat unique. I am marinating chicken breasts and wings as we speak, and have a couple jars stocked away for later use.
Balsamic BBQ Sauce
makes about 4 servings
1 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and stir until all the ingredients are incorporated and the mixture is smooth. Simmer over medium heat until reduced by 1/3, about 15 to 20 minutes.
