I was having a really terrible night so when I went out I decided to smile big (like Christina Ricci Wednesday Addams) and when people asked me how I was doing I replied enthusiastically. Even though I was really sad I noticed that smiling and pretending to be happy actually made me happy and for some reason people were extra nice to me. And now I am happy. Also, sometimes I think when bad things happen it’s actually a really good thing. It gives you perspective and epiphanies to fuel you so you can do better. I knew all of this already, but sometimes I forget.

I made a version of "Four Corners Lentil Soup" from My New Roots for lunch today and it was delicious. I usually make a similar lentil soup, but I’ve never added lemon before and it turned out great and now the house smells good and cozy. In my version I used what I had in the kitchen; green lentils instead of red lentils (difference between lentils, found here), ginger powder, cayenne, cumin, salt, pepper, water instead of broth, shallots, garlic, and one can of whole peeled tomatoes with no extra toppings.

You can make the delicious looking cream puff treat from The Grand Budapest Hotel, there’s a video! I need to go buy some dye and pastry bags now! I’m so excited! I loved the movie, of course.

Sorry I’ve been so distant. Things I could blog about seem to end up on Instagram. I know I want to keep blogging, but I’m trying to figure out what I want to post out into the world. Are there things you want me to blog about? Please post suggestions in the comments! I do like American life, but I miss blogging from Spain where I was always going on little trips. Blogging about trips, whether I was going on them or dreaming about them has always been my favorite thing to blog. I guess I should really just blog weekly and maybe tell you more current things about what’s going on with me. Here, I’ll start.
Now can we talk about this baseball dress/shirt from Zara? It’s silly, but I think I should own it. I love the words and phrases Zara chooses for their fashion line.

I made soufflé for the first time last night, which consisted of making chocolate pudding and meringue and mixing it together. Watching the egg whites and powdered sugar turn to beautiful meringuey snow and the soufflé rise in the oven made me absolutely giddy. Note: When making meringue, don’t you dare let a little bit of yolk into the egg whites for it will not transform into meringue.
