WHY DON’T YOU? #153

Monday:

Why don’t you subscribe to one of those food box things that are so popular right now? I finally signed up for Hello Fresh so that I can try it out for a few weeks and see if it legitimately fits into my culinary lifestyle. It’ll be good to branch out and cook ingredients I would never bother with otherwise. I mean, I liked a sweet potato for the first time after one showed up. I believe this kind of mindless meal planning is going to be fairly beneficial to diversify my diet and force me to make more than popcorn for dinner.

Tuesday:

Even if, from the bottom of your heart, you know you’re never going to finish, why don’t you start a project you’ve long been thinking of? I have spent years plotting out a travel guide to Paris. It used to be a book, but now I think it would be better to be an app, but that doesn’t matter here. I want to make a guide to all of the Metro’s of Paris. I would explore every exit and make note of the best things to see at that spot or the greatest things to eat, or which bakery was best. I think it’d be tremendous. I’ll never do it. Oh well.

Wednesday:

Why don’t you give yourself an absurd goal? When I was younger, I decided that I would go to every Alfredo’s restaurant on the planet. I did it. I was proud. I went to Rome and Orlando and New York, and I was smug about it. Now I’ve decided that I need to go to every Waffle House location in Kansas City. Why, you might ask? I have no idea. It’s dumb. But I’m going to do it. You have to have goals, reader, otherwise there’s no point in anything.

Thursday;

Why don’t you plan a day in bed watching televisas on Netflix? On Sunday, I’m really looking froward to lounging in my king-size bed wearing a robe and sipping red wine while I watch Kate del Castillo run away from the government on Ingoberanble. It’s my newest obsession. I can’t wait to watch the entire series. I have never actually binge watched anything, I’m really rather excited to try!

Friday:

Why don’t you make yourself a vat of jamaica to sip on? In my travels, I have repeatedly come across hibiscus flavors. In Egypt they make karkade and in Mexico City they make jamaica. It’s the same thing, but I’ve never been very successful. I finally mastered it last night. Add two packages of dried hibiscus flowers from your local Mexican grocery store to two liters of water. Bring this to a boil and simmer for ten minutes, then allow it to cool completely. I left mine on the stove overnight. Then, strain out the flowers and pour this concentrate into a glass jar. Add 1/3 of the mix with 1/3 cup of sugar to a pitcher. Fill to the top with cold water and stir. Enjoy.
