I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

King of Win!!

Someone watches over me, I have clydesdale sized horseshoes up my ass, or I am extremely on the ball? Maybe, it’s my life trifecta? This morning went to check stuff out at johnvarvatos … and what did I see? My recently purchased Converse X kicks on sale. A quick email, followed by an even quicker phone call … and Bob’s your price adjustment uncle. They happily credited my AMEX the difference since it was within the 14 day company policy time allowance for said adjustments. Still not sure the exact refund amount, but I’m guessing it’s $60+ … I loved them before when I initially bought & got ’em … I love them even more now! Next, about an hour later began working on finalizing a purchase I had on my mind for a few days. I won’t lie, my first thoughts at the time were too excessive, too expensive … but now, for whatever reason, Banana Republic popped to mind. Went online to see what their site had to offer. Not only was I able to peruse items, I was able to check availability at my nearby store (updated every 20 minutes) which is what I wanted, nothing worse than wasted trips to the mall. While deciding on the exact item I wanted, I did happen to catch that 40% discount offer (today & tomorrow/online purchases only) prominently displayed. Why go to the mall and spend $125, when I can sit on my fat ass and order from my computer (along with a cool personalized message at no charge – I LOVE that shit, lol) for $75? Exactly? So that’s what I did, and in all likelihood, will be returning it for a refund at the store, but at least now I have it, and at a sweet deal, really it just provides greater flexibility, whatever I decide. The way I look at it, the money back from JV covers the BR purchase. Win Win … King!!

Roasted green bean, cremini, & grape tomato salad!

LOVE roasting veggies, this one’s easy peasy … and healthy as hell to boot. First snip, then wash the beans (and tomatoes), wipe clean the creminis with a mushroom brush (or a damp paper towel), then slice in half … season it all liberally with sea salt and freshly ground pepper (oh, I also threw in a few cloves of smashed garlic for added flavour, which I later removed after roasting). Liberally splash with olive oil and toss till coated … evenly spread on a parchment lined baking sheet, and throw into a 450° oven, and half an hour later Bob’s yer uncle!! A coupla pics, enjoy!
