So yesterday was my last day of work at the bakery. It didn’t really feel like the last day or like it was ending or anything, it felt like a pretty standard day. I might miss it a bit. Mainly the people. And having little bites of desserts here and there haha. Although I like to think I practiced excellent restaint considering working in a bakery and being allowed to basically eat whatever you wanted whenever. I very rarely actually ate anything there at all.
I packed a pretty small lunch because I figured I might be doing some decent dessert munching with it being my last day and all. And I did. Well, I actually didn’t have that much at all but I had a bite of several different things which is more than any other standard day there. Anyway, the lunch was some raw veggies, a plum and an apple. Don’t worry, I also packed a Maple Nut Cliff Bar just in case I felt I needed it, but I didn’t at all.
I had an iced coffee/hot chocolate drink after this to satisfy the sweet tooth. Then it was out for some drinks/dancing with a friend and some of her work friends. I was driving though so no boozing for me. I’ll admit though that the night was pretty lame. There seemed to be a lot of sketch bags out last night.
I had a pretty rough tossy turny sleep last night. No idea why but it was insanely annoying. And I have been tired all day today. I should have napped earlier but I went to get a hair trim and then my friend wanted to go shopping. So really no good chance for a nap. And now instead of napping I am blogging. And then I am supposed to go out dancing. So I am running out of time for my second chance at a nap. I’m going to be one cranky character tomorrow if I don’t fix this situation. So I’ll try to wrap the rest of this up quickly ;)
Prior to breakfast I had a baking urge. I went for a second attempt at this scone recipe (which I tried and failed before).
While these were in the oven I made an excellent smoothie: chocolate protein powder, banana, strawberry yogurt, unsweeteened vanilla almond milk and papaya. I don’t love papaya but I do love it in smoothies. It thickens them right up to a great consistency.
See the edges? Yeah, definitely flattened them a bit too thin. The edges were all moderately burnt and they were just a bit too overdone. The taste is okay, but I need to remember to make them thicker next time and probably check them at some point during their baking time…
Later I did a lazy workout which was one of my easier Tae bo dvds, then I had a quick snack of some cottage cheese before going to get a very minor hair trim. I ate the rest of this container plus opened a new one and had several spoonfuls from it… heaping spoonfuls…
For my lunch later I had a serious omelette craving. So I went for it. Plus some carrots with balsamic vinaigrette on the side. I also had some unphotographed rye bread and crackers with hummus and salsa because I am semi-addicted to that combo and felt a serious need for it.
Then I went shopping. My friend and I went to the mall but ended up going to a baking store and grocery store later instead and those are the places we did all of our purchasing. I came home with some stir fry sauce and canned baba ghanoush plus a giant bag of overripened bananas for 99 cents that I couldn’t pass up. Now I have lots to freeze for my cereal toppings and yogurt mix-ins, and also lots to use in baking!
This was super filling but I was still craving something sweet of course, and really wanted something banana after buying that giant bag. So I had some frozen banana slices topped with a vanilla yogurt/pumpkin seed butter/sugar free maple syrup dressing. Perfect.
Now I have to try to have a nap or at least shut my eyes and lie here for a bit before going out dancing tonight. Oh joy. Don’t know just how up for dancing I am tonight but I already committed so I guess I’ll suck it up! Night everyone.
