I was up and rarin’ to go at 6:30am this morning, which means that breakfast was devoured by the artificial lighting of my 80’s-style overhead lighting fixture. Although this makes for a rather jaundiced breakfast, these Pumpkin Carob Oats were still mighty delicious…
1/2 rolled oats
1 cup water
1/2 canned pumpkin
drizzle of agave
cinnamon, nutmeg + ginger
1 hunk o’ almond buttah
1 tbsp. carob chips
Since I leave on Wednesday to visit my gawjuss BFF Megan in Charlotte, I spent most of the day at work organizing my stuff and making sure all the necessities are taken care of before I leave.
I would like to say this makes me a grown-up and such. However, after going to the bathroom my dress got accidentally stuck in my tights and consequently, showed some major butt cheek. I honestly don’t know how long and how many people saw this (shudders). All I know is my friend Steph came into the office and laughed her a$$ off when she saw me. It immediately humbled me back into my awkward middle school years.
Since I ate breakfast earlier, I was ravenous for my mid-morning snack around 10am…
Also, in an effort to not buy groceries before I leave, I raided my parent’s pantry this weekend for food to hold me over until then. Thankfully, this endeavor has forced me to be both creative and thrifty.
Tomato Soup + Plain Popcorn…yes, that is what I call creative AND thrifty!
Yes, I ate the whole bag. And yes, I happily dumped the popcorn IN the soup and devoured. Trust me when I say it was tres magnifico! The creamy soup + crunchy popcorn made the perfect contrast. I WILL be eating this again.
Afternoon snackage to tame the hunger beast…
That would be two glasses of cabernet sauvignon + two slices of Tofu Veggie Lasagna (made by my supremely fabulous and wonderful friend Ilsa). Trust me when I say we pretty much had the best time drinking wine, singing to The Cure, then singing to Rent and finally chowing down on lasagna.
And yes, that probably was the best date ever. I am pretty sure if Ilsa was a guy, we would already be married. I am pretty sure I told her that tonight as well.
With that, I’m heading to bed in preparation for a looonnnnggg day tomorrow.
Have you ever been supremely embarrassed at work? Look above for my recent shenanigan.
