Active Verbage

in breakfast,dinner,lunch

Retype and review.

I always ask questions, then forget to share all your fabulous answers!

Apparently, it turns out most of us would wear black the rest of our lives (besides you Miss Coral and Miss Sage Green); most commenters would love to travel to Europe (minus those girls who would rather go to Africa, Turkey or Egypt); all of us have had our fair share of horrible school pictures (yeah, especially you and you!); and finally, we can all agree that exercise sure keeps us in shape and out of crazytown.

Drool and devour.

2 packets plain Cream of Wheat
2/3 cup water + 2/3 cup skim milk
1/2 cup pumpkin
lotsa cinnamon
1 small sliced naner
2 tbsp. dark choco chips
drizzle maple syrup
dollop of PB



Chomp and chew.


Savor and snarf.

2 slices sprouted spelt bread
1 Barbecue Sunshine patty
spicy brown mustard
FSTG Potato Chive Chips



Sip and slurp.


Grande Nonfat Misto (1/2 milk + 1/2 coffee) + 2 pumps of Chai

Break and bite.


Nosh and nibble.

2 large kale leaves
1/2 zucchini
1/4 onion
EVOO + salt + garlic powder
2 eggs
black bean salsa
Ezekiel English muffin


Rest and relax.

Unplug too. That’s what I am off to do with a little novel called The Time Traveler’s Wife.

That’s how we do oats in my house.
Oh, and those Food Should Taste Good chips, thanks for reminding me I have half a bag somewhere I’ve foolishly resisted gulfing down

Mmm that egg dish looks amazing. I had eggs for dinner tonight too!

Jenna September 16, 2009 at 7:38 pm

I need to seriously unplug too! I need to go relax :)

But not before telling you that:

1. Your breakfast looks to.die.for.!
2. I totally love your headers to the sections of your post. So cute!

Nighty night!

Jenny September 16, 2009 at 8:18 pm

Love the verbage, and thanks for the sage green shoutout! ;)

OH that breakfast is sooo making me drool!

Sarah (Running To Slow Things Down) September 16, 2009 at 8:20 pm

Oh, let me know how you like the Time Travelers Wife! I read the first chapter before it became a best seller, returned it because I couldn’t get into it, and then discovered that people loved it. I guess I should have gone past the first chapter before such a decision…haha.

Kailey (SnackFace) September 16, 2009 at 8:24 pm

I’ll have one of everything pictured here, thank you.

OK, Time Traveler’s Wife. I hope you love it! I couldn’t pull myself away from that novel and I wept throughout the last 100 pages. But I’m a sap…

Have a marvelous time unplugging!

glidingcalm September 16, 2009 at 9:35 pm

Enjoying the book? It’s sooo good I miss reading it.

Alison September 17, 2009 at 4:14 am

I never knew what a Misto was – I failed coffee house school. Scribbling that down in my notes right now, hoping to pass the final exam!

Susan September 17, 2009 at 5:36 am

I’ve never tried cream of wheat before, is it like a creamier version of oat bran? If so then I’m aaaaalll over it ;) And for a second there, I thought you put the chips in your sandwich. Which I think would actually taste good!

Catie September 17, 2009 at 6:50 am

Oh, the Time Traveler’s Wife is such a good book. Hope you enjoy it!

Megan (The Runner's Kitchen) September 17, 2009 at 8:36 am

Are you a professional food photographer in disguise?? The photo of your peach looks so juicy and scrumptious!

dee (the apple hill adventurer) September 17, 2009 at 8:52 am

ermmm .. omfg
that bowl of cream of wheat looks SO GOOD

takes me back to when my mom used to make us cream of rice before school, and we would get to add our own raisins and milk and sugar. I always loaded mine up with so many raisins … mm one of my fav bfasts as a kid!

that burger sandwich looks GREAT too .. mmm

Low September 17, 2009 at 9:23 am

I LOVE cream of wheat…in the box, the kind you cook on the stove
