The Adorable Story of How I Came to Own a Loaf Pan
So, for about a year now I have wanted to buy a loaf pan.
But, being a grad student, and then being a grad student who commutes to NYC every week to intern, and then being a person living in NYC and trying to get a job, AND THEN being a person who lives in NYC and has a job but is trying to pay down the debt accrued from not having a job and living in NYC…basically means that I never have spare money. Especially not spare money for a loaf pan. 😦
I have a new roommate who moved in this week, and literally the day after she moved in, my job hired me on full-time! (I was a paid intern in an intern-to-hire position, so I knew this day was coming. I just didn’t expect it to be so soon!) So I come home, and new roommate–Florence–is unpacking stuff in her room, and I run in and announce my new fully-employed with benefits (!!!!!) status.
And the next day she came home with a loaf pan for me as a “congrats on your job” gift.
And so today, I made zucchini bread. Look how pretty it is!
