I am so embarrassingly tired right now (it’s only midnight!). I’m glad I’m on a good schedule because I wake up at more or less the same time each morning without needing much assistance from the many alarm clocks that I plant around the room… but that also means that come 9 o’clock my eyes start to DROOP!
Emily’s post about her friend’s interesting eats made me crave chips and salsa. It’s funny, because that’s not usually a snack I go for. I’m more of a sweet snack kind of gal, I guess.
Well, after having a few chips I decided I didn’t really want them anymore and I put them back. I’m such a weirdo like that… I’ll debate something for so long, decide on it, have a few bites and decide it’s not what I wanted after all.
Speaking of indecision, NEVER go to the grocery store hungry. Especially when said grocery store is a Super Target and has everything you could possibly want (except Arnold’s Sandwich Thins… what’s up with that?). Jalene and I went around 7 (prime dinner time) to get her some cough syrup, and ended up staying there for an HOUR. It was such a pathetic scene, you should have seen it: we’d walk slowly through the aisles, pausing in front of the candy/cookie/ice cream displays for SO LONG. We spent TEN MINUTES in the frozen food aisle debating which pizza to get (yes, it was that kind of a night) only to end up getting none! Crazy girls.
When we did finally get home, I had some baby carrots and a glass of Vouvray while I decided what to make for dinner. (Yes, I know how gross our counter top looks… we’re cleaning tomorrow, I swear.)
I decided on a variation on a recipe that I found in Health for a mushroom pasta. In a skillet, I sautéed garlic and oil with tofu, mushrooms, and canned diced tomatoes. Once the tofu and mushrooms were nicely browned, I took the skillet off the heat and tossed in a little spinach.
I added 2 oz of spaghetti, and topped it with parsley, 1 tablespoon of chopped walnuts and mozzarella. C’était délicieux!
We had a nice girls’ night in, which means PJs, a movie, and ice cream. We watched Dreamgirls (I know, we’re probably the only two girls who hadn’t seen it) and were doing SO WELL with keeping our emotions at bay, until the last scene when the tear ducts let us down. Oh, well!
As for the ice cream, I had a BIG bowl of Edy’s Loaded Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough with Special Dark Hershey’s Syrup and a Double Stuffed Oreo. Woman, get thee to the gym! Totally worth it, though.
My lazy self is already in bed, so all I have to do is turn out the light. Goodnight!
