Hello there lovelies! Everyone ready for just another manic monday? I have a midterm this morning for which I failed to study enough. I’m really anal about studying and normally like to memorize everything. This one’s going to be multiple choice and one essay, so my instincts are telling me it won’t be too challenging. Ha!– we’ll see!
I did manage to get some awesome groceries yesterday. I’ll try to recreate an image of them later this afternoon 🙂 I spent too much, as usual. Allow me to get on to yesterday’s colorful food! (Lunch is unpictured because it was the same wrap I’ve been eating: flat-out, spinach, hummus, pickles; and a drip-down-your-arm juicy pear).
My roomie Morgan, with whom I’ve been living for since our freshman year, has turned into something both fantastic and dangerous: a damn good baker. Some of the things she’s made that I couldn’t resist: pumpkin bread, pound cake, oatmeal cookies, eggless brownies…a lotta yum. This weekend she made molasses cookies with vanilla icing.
Multiply that picture times three. Those beauts are hard to resist! I had those mid-afternoon, before grocery shopping and the fine food store known as Wal-Mart. When I’m home in Cincinnati, one of the first things I love to do is go to Whole Foods to peruse, because while Wal-Mart works for my college budget, it ain’t the same.
After an afternoon and evening with MisterMan (he so kindly took me to Wal-Mart), I returned home to make some dinner. I decided to focus on my veggie intake:
In the mix: romaine, cherry toms, corn, edamame, my sad attempt at carrot ribbons, pepper, crushed red pepper. These pics were taken pre-dressing, which was Newman’s Own Balsamic.
And I just couldn’t help myself with this next dinner component:
I make sweet potatoes constantly, which is in large part thanks to the blog world. They are also fast- I just cut them, spray them with some generic Spam, and pop em in for a total of 22-25 minutes (depending on my patience) and them devour.
Is it a bit redundant when I post two pics of the same thing? I just like the different angles, but if it’s a drag, just lemme know! After dinner I folded laundry while listening to John Mayer’s Continuum. This album is bluesy and moody– excellent when you skip over the major singles. I then left for Tempo Tantrums practice 9-10ish p.m. I kinda forgot we have a gig this Thursday! It should be a blast ( I love performances!)
I came home and promptly made some Yogi stomach ease tea to accompany a serving or so ok Kashi Honey Sunrise.
Those Honey Sunshine pillows remind me a lot of the Cap’n Crunch golden barrels (shapewise and texture-wise, not flavorwise). Cap’n Crunch is my favorite junky cereal. I loved it so much in high school that I even wrote a short piece of fiction solely about Cap’n. Foodie before I even realized it! Oh, but I love this Kashi’s version too!
I stayed up till 2:30ish trying to study, but really thinking about blogging. I could not focus for the life of me! Here’s today’s agenda:
10-12 IART Midterm- this could be ugly
12-1 Women’s Chorale
1-2 Work out
2-? I surprisingly have no rehearsals tonight! I’ll try to do some homework, take grocery pics, blog some more, maybe make White Bean Aoili from V’Con, maybe mess with some spaghetti squash- it’s a little up in the air right now.
I hope everyone has a fabulous start to their weeks! Thank you thank you thank you to all readers and commenters! You make my day! I’ll be back later 🙂
Ciao for now,
