Now that work is done I’ve been chilling at home the last couple days and been feeling extra snackalicious. I’ve eaten my weight in zucchini bread, cottage cheese and grapes. Not all together, but now that I think about it, that COULD be a good combination! Snicker.
I’ve also eaten at least half my weight in THIS ICE CREAM.
Remember my Pecan Butter Tart bliss? Well this one is the same line, only Chocolatey Caramel Treats. Meaning every bite is loaded with little mini Roloesque chocolate bits. I keep picking them out of the container. Yeah with my fingers. Spoons, schmoons.
I still worked this day so my breakfast was quick and sloppy.
Guardian cereal, blueberries, bananas, plain yogurt, PB2, almond milk.
Work consisted of a whole lot of labeling and packaging manuals and doing inventory counts. Exciting, am I right?
I really needed to add some thrill to my life after that day so I made pretty much the most colourful salad I’ve ever laid eyes on and my day was instantly brightened.
Spinach, romaine, mushrooms, tomatoes, yellow zucchini, banana peppers, avocado, baba ganoush, honey mustard.
Oh come on, doesn’t fun coloured just make you wanna smile?
As does corn on the cob and fresh bread with Pizza Cheese! :)
Wednesday night I was going to go out to groove to some Hip Hop tunes but instead my friend and I took it easy, went to a cafe, and chatted about the weekend and Retro Night adventures over peppermint tea and spinach dip.
You probably can’t gather quite how classy my favourite retro night hotspot is from the picture (ehem.. chain link fence inside?) but I definitely spent some time standing in a giant puddle in the middle of the floor by one of the bars where a puddle should NOT have been. I thought it was funny at the time but thinking back, I wish I had removed my soaked sandaled feet much much quicker. Shudder.
My first day of doing nada after a month of full time work. How do I start it out? By sleeping in until 10 (score!) and then eating my entire kitchen contents (not so score).
One of the many things I ate: a bowl of pumpkin mixed with mango apricot yogurt, frozen banana, blueberries and Shreddies.
And ICED coffee. Do you love my baby Babar mug in the background? I think that thing’s like 15 years old. Now that’s Retro.
MIA? Zucchini bread. Nut butter. ICE cream. Whooooops. Hey, it was a work-is-over celebratory breakfast. Those always need to include ice cream, no? Okay, maybe just that ONE day.
You would think I’d never be hungry again after my mondo breakfast but alas, my stomach always wants food. And I always oblige.
Mucho cabbage slaw with feta and cottage cheese, grapes and cherries eaten backyard style.
And pictures of my blurry toes and droopy flowers just for fun (my magazine wasn’t captivating my attention enough).
Then I went inside and ate up the last two old lychees in my fridge. They were getting mold spots. They’ve got a coating though so it’s all good! I’m still kicking anyway.
Dinner was eaten at home and unmemorable but later last night my friend and I discovered this new little sushi restaurant so I had to try an inari hand roll – one of these stuffed with just rice and a piece of fried soy bean curd.
And here we are! I’m so thrown off with my days now. Weekend is HERE though and I dig it.
Sadly I’ve hardly moved an inch all day today and now it’s almost dinner time. I had to do some work from home though, organizing thank you letters and missing item letters to send out to elementary schools who participated in the literacy program I was working for, so that ate up my morning. Then I was just in lazy mode from there on out. I’ll bang out some energy after dinner though for a workout and then a night out!
Before starting my work stuff I made a nice big pear-shaped bowl brimming with oat bran.
Oat bran, small handful rolled oats, whey liquid, water, splash almond milk, 1/2 banana, pumpkin, cinnamon, SF maple syrup; topped with PB2 mixed with vanilla yogurt.
While I plugged away at the computer for the morning, my mom went to a local farm to pick up some fresh veg. She came back just in time for lunch. Along with her came a loaf of fresh flax bread. You can bet I tried some of it immediately.
Then I made a big salad dressed in this new bottle of balsamic vinaigrette.
That I ate in the backyard. Where I had to wear a long sleeved shirt. In AUGUST.
Weirdest summer ever.
My mom’s friend made fresh date squares so I had to sample some of them as well. About 1/4 of the sample actually made it into my wee silicon bowl.
I’m about hungry again. I’m thinking sweet taters. Mmmm.
And with that… WEEKEND time! Have a great one!
