This weekend I went to G's and cooked a lot of yummy food. Since being diagnosed with celiac disease, I have gotten a lot more confident in my cooking skills, since I have to cook a lot more or become a bunny rabbit and just eat fresh fruits and veggies. I successfully (and by successfully, I mean G loved it too and said it was restaurant-worthy) cooked corn pasta and hot dogs with veggies, chicken wraps on corn tortillas (gluten-free but not as expensive as fancy gluten-free tortillas), and omelets with the leftover chicken, green peppers, onion, and mushrooms.
I watched two football games and three movies. The University of Washington Huskies won and didn't get scored on once! And the Seattle Seahawks won too. I got a new Seahawks shirt from the men's section at the mall. They had women's ones but none of them had the player's names or numbers on them. I got a Russell Wilson shirt. I wanted Marshawn Lynch, but they were all sold out except for size XL. We watched the Seahawks game at Roosevelt Ale House, which is a truly amazing bar because it serves delicious gluten-free food. So far I've had a delicious breakfast sandwich there, a good burger, and amazing and ginormous nachos. All of the food I've tried there has been really good, but I don't think I would order the burger again. For burgers, my go-to restaurant is Blue Moon Burgers. They are good burgers period, not just good for being gluten-free.
We got some movies from Redbox: World War Z, Now You See Me, and Olympus Has Fallen. Have you noticed how many movies have Morgan Freeman in them lately?! I've seen three recently that had him: World War Z, Oblivion, and Olympus Has Fallen. World War Z was pretty great, and not just because I love zombie movies. I really enjoyed it and I especially liked the look of the zombies. They didn't look like their flesh was rotting right after being bit. They were also fast zombies, which I'm not a huge fan of. I give it a 4 out of 5. Now You See Me was really good. It kept me guessing the whole time. It had a really original story (as far as I know) and a good cast. Plus Jesse Eisenberg was in it, but not as the goof-off guy who never grows up, which was refreshing from him. I give it a 4 out of 5 as well. Olympus Has Fallen was better than G or I thought it would be. It was the one I thought I might not like, but it was actually okay. It was very action-y with lots of shooting and politics, but the story was pretty good anyway. I give it a 3 out of 5.
We also watched The Office and The League on Netflix, which are always favorites of mine. All in all it was a good weekend.
And in other news, my boss told me today that she's looking for another person to help out at work, which is fantastic and will hopefully relieve a lot of my stress.
