Top ‘o the mornin’ to ya, lads and lassies! Another week has flown by… this is going to be a very exciting weekend here at the Lilveggiepatch/ Upwelling headquarters. The CD release show and after-party are back-to-back tomorrow night, and there will be a slew of family, friends and good people staying with us. I love a full house! It feels kind of like camp 🙂
Yesterday, we celebrated the boy’s homecoming with a trip to the diner.
While Ari was gone, the diner added a few new items to their menu and switched to using all organic eggs and dairy. I decided to forgo my usual omelet (which I’ve gotten more than a little tired of) and got the Organic Low Fat [Greek] Yogurt Parfait.
The mango syrup was amazing.
I’m so used to eating nonfat yogurt that the lowfat tasted really rich to me.
Overall, I really liked the parfait. There were about two cups of granola in the bowl, at least half of which I left. Next time I think I’ll ask for more yogurt and less granola.
I spent the rest of the morning puttering around and watching Taxi Driver. By the time I was showered and ready for work I only had five minutes to make and eat lunch, which explains the horribly blurry photos. Sorry!
I packed a bottle of Berry Superfood Amazing Grass, shaken with water. This flavor reminds me a lot of chewable vitamins.
I whipped up a quick tuna salad to eat on the go:
I used one can of tuna, 1/3 of a bag of shredded carrots, and hummus.
This was tastier in theory than execution. I think it needed a little vinegar or something, because the flavors were really washed out. I was, once again, that gross girl eating stinky and messy food on the subway. A busy girl’s gotta eat!
I ate an apple on the way, and brought a nectarine with me to eat after work.
At the restaurant I snacked on a PB&J Larabar. I’d eaten enough bufala to last me a week the day before, so I let Mario keep his cheese 🙂
I wanted to get home and see my boy, so I took dinner to go and ate it on the way to the train. Ramon made me a salad with romaine, tomatoes, apples, broccoli, beets, green beans, avocado and roquefort cheese.
In addition to the nectarine, I had a dessert plate when I got home. It’s been a long time since I’ve eaten one! This one had Israeli pop rocks chocolate and dates, a dried apricot and prune smeared with almond butter.
This chocolate really is like crack to me. I don’t know if it’s the taste or the snap, crackle and POP! it makes, but my tastebuds were literally screaming for joy. They begged me to go back for more, so I obliged 🙂
Well, I’m off to get my bangies trimmed and run some errands. Have a great weekend! And please enjoy this PSA from your favorite childhood friend…
