Bonjour mes enfants! I trust you’ve all slept wonderfully and are ready to take on your Mondays! No? Well, drink some coffee.
Sarah surprised me yesterday with some lovely treats from Russia! Honey, a fashionable notebook, and (my favorite!) MONARCHY KETCHUP with pictures of, yep, Catherine and Peter the Great! That girl is the coolest.
To keep in the Russian spirit of things, I enjoyed some of my FOR MEN chocolate (see the little “no women” signs?). x 2. I can feel my beard starting to sprout…
I had a Gala to help me study… an apple a day makes your brain grow each day!
Last night I was inspired by this recipe in SELF. Shrimp taco it is!
I mixed some cooked shrimp with parsley, lemon juice, garlic, salt & pepper.
I tossed it on a soft taco and added goat cheese, shredded lettuce and another squirt of lemon. Quite a mess to eat, but mighty tasty!
I also had a great big grapefruit…
For dessert, I heated up a Chocolate Chip Z bar and sandwiched it between two scoops of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. Mm-mm good.
I watched Evening while I cooked; it’s a sweet little movie and has a crazy good cast. It should have been better than it was, but I’m not sad I saw it.
This morning’s oatmeal was bomb-diddly-icious again. I finished up the last of my Banana Flax oats and added some goodies:
-Mixed nuts (cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, almonds)
I put my coffee in the teapot so I could use the little creamer. I need all the extra things to get me excited on a Monday morning!
I had to get my virtual news on this morning, because once again, my newspaper was not on the doorstep! WSJ, you’ll be getting a call from me shortly.
Head on over to Every Gym’s Nightmare for a chance to win a lovely purple item from Danskin, and have a great day!
