Good evening! I hope you’re all enjoying your weekends. Mine has been really nice so far! Unfortunately I’m having an iPhoto problem on Ari’s laptop, so I’ll only be able to blog my meals through lunch. The problem will be fixed tomorrow when I go home to pick up my laptop… I’m sure you’ll be able to live without knowing what I ate for dinner 🙂
Last night I stayed up late (for me) and had a bowl of Puffins, 1/2 banana and skim.
For some reason, even though I went to bed close to 2, I woke up at 4 AM and didn’t go back to sleep. At all. As of now I haven’t even napped, and I have no idea how I’m still going strong! I finally got out of bed at 5:30 and had an apple and some Earl Gray tea.
A couple hours later I had breakfast. I spotted fresh apricots at the grocery store yesterday and snapped a couple up. Apricots are the spring version of clementines for me… I can literally eat a dozen at a time.
I diced two up and served them on top of two Kashi waffles with cinnamon and Fage 0%. One of the apricots was riper than the other, so I microwaved the harder one for about 30 seconds. This softened it up, and made a nice little syrup. Can you tell which is which? (The waffle on the left has the nuked apricots.)
I had another cup of tea and heated up a little maple syrup to dip my waffles into.
By 9:30, since I’d been up for so long, I was getting pretty hungry. I grabbed a banana to hold me over while I worked the soup kitchen.
When I got home, I snacked on some fresh chickpea hummus from Hummus Place that my mom and I picked up yesterday.
I ate a big scoop with some whole wheat pita (also from Hummus Place) and the cilantro hot sauce that came with it. Delicious! Can’t wait to make a crack wrap out of this stuff.
After unpacking a little, I ate a salad I picked up from the grocery store yesterday: romaine, soba noodles, tofu, carrots, onions, green beans, and tomatoes with a spicy mint pesto dressing. This dressing was great! I didn’t use it all up, so it’ll be a nice treat for later (maybe on said crack wrap?).
Anyway, Ari and I just got back from dinner (which will be posted yesterday). We’re having a very nice time watching King of the Hill doing mature things. He also hasn’t been sleeping much recently… he just got back from a 6 week tour! Just last night my friend Jenny saw him in Colombus.
My fatigue is starting to catch up with me so I’m going to sign off before my sentences get even more incoherent than usual. But so I’m not totally lame, check out Gliding Calm‘s blog! She’s giving away one of Mara‘s funky charms.
See you tomorrow! Night 🙂
