I wish I were out celebrating Bastille Day. Then I would have titled this post Tipsy Tuesday. For some reason, though, I don’t think this bod would enjoy that at the moment. Though I didn’t “go out” tonight, I did manage to sit in a bar at one point.
Deciding to give my foot a rest, the morning started with some ab and arm work, a face wash and another happy breakfast:
Work was busier than normal today, as I am in the process of compiling everything that’s normally due at the end of the week. Because we’re going to LA for the conference, things need to be finished in advance. Yea, I’m going to be staying after work tomorrow to finish my thangs.
I was the chef today and had to work with minimal fresh ingredients. With the help of TJ’s Indian Fare, I pulled it together:
TJ’s really knows wassup. The punjub cholent comes in aluminum bags that you just dump out, heat up and serve. I added a fresh heirloom tomato to give it a fresh kick, and it was a delight.
We had an afternoon meeting to look at our updated page layout for Sept+Oct. Oh my goodness, be on the lookout for this one. It’s spectacular.
Our meeting lasted until 4:30 pm and I was starving after! I SnackFaced on carrots and celery with a mustard+BBQ sauce dip. Naturally, that wasn’t enough for me, so when I came home after 6pm, I ate an entire cucumber with TJ’s Three Layer Hummus:
I went for a walk to the pharmacy after this snack. Along the way I caught up with my dear friend Alex, who spent the last half of the year traveling the world. Her arrival date back to Cinci was right as I was leaving–we missed each other! And I cannot wait to see her in September!
On my way back from the pharmacy, I stopped in the Fireside to chat with Charlotte and Lyndsay. The bar was filled with locals and our conversation was heavy with Sex and the City-worthy girl talk. Ya’ll don’t even wanna know.
We ventured back to our apartment (Lydnsay is basically our third roommate- I love it!) and assembled dinner. For moi:
In the mix: spinach, sprouts, broccoli, corn, mango, 1/2 avocado smashed with hot sauce, pepper, and salt and TJ’s Pineapple Salsa. The mango and salsa additions really made this salad divine. Lyndsay whipped up some pesto, and I absolutely had to try some:
Fresh and bright, this pesto reminded me of Christmas. Bizarre, but it’s the truth. I didn’t have a larger portion because what I really wanted was Peanut Butter Puffins. I’m eating them right now, straight from the box.
I’m getting increasingly excited for the weekend in LA. Remember my vegan date from last week? He just might be staying in the same hotel in which the VegNews crew is staying. Hmmm…
The girls have just put in Dazed and Confused, which, embarassingly, I’ve never seen. Time for me to relocate to the couch with my box-o-Puffins. Much love, boos!
Ciao for now,
QUESTION: What’s one very popular movie you’ve never seen?
There are probably too many for me to recall, but I’ll name a few in categories. I’m usually embarrassed to admit I’ve never seen them.
Newbies: Twilight (I’ll probably never see this), The Hangover (NEED to see this- I have a feeling I’ll relate on some levels)
Oldies: The Godfather (I feel as though I’d be bored), Casablanca (NEED to see this)
