Thanks to Martin Luther King Jr., I had the day off! Although let’s be real, that is the least of his accomplishments :).
I decided to enjoy the morning by whipping up a batch of Kath’s Whole Wheat Yogurt Pancakes…
Added to the mix: cinnamon and bananas! These were excellent – yet another winning recipe from Ms. Real Food herself! Topped with a smidge of peanut butter and a drizzle of maple syrup, these were the perfect way to enjoy a lazy Monday morning…
Thankfully, I have two more servings waiting for me in the fridge.
This morning, the productivity train kept on the tracks, and I went to a local coffee shop where I hammered out two solid hours of writing. Unfortunately, two crotchety old men decided to sit next to me and scream their conversation to each other. I vented my frustration on GChat to my friend Jess, which went a lil’ something like this…
me: i am going to <bleep> kill the two old crochety men who are talking so loud and crabbing about next to me at the coffeeshop.
i just had to get that out
Jess: no problemo
me: HOW ARE YOU?!?!
Jess: im awesome!
how are you?
me: i’m good…minus the two <bleep> next to me
That is verbatim word for word, FYI.
Lunch TOTALLY redeemed my attitude. This junk salad of love was so full of unexpected flavors and textures, I loved it!
- two large handfuls spinach
- 1/2 cup carrot sticks
- 1/4 cup garbanzos
- 2 tbsp. curry-roasted cashews
- 1/2 diced avocado
- 1/4 cup cilantro pesto hummus
- Amy’s California burger
- 5 Ak-Mak crackers
Dessert was per a recommendation Katharina gave me a loooongggg time ago…
Besides the fact that the color kind of skeeved me out (flourescent orange isn’t a natural shade…perhaps I am wrong, maybe Vanessa Minnilo knows the answer to this one?), the chunks of actual carrot cake in this were DIVINE!
I think the fact I ate it with a Chuck E. Cheese spoon may have made it taste even better. Just sayin’…
Sometime in the afternoon, I munched on a delectable orange…
…which are AMAZING right now! Seriously, go stock up on oranges now!
This afternoon, I hit up the movie A Single Man with my girl Ilsa. This movie was heartbreakingly beautiful. I definitely recommend it. Colin Firth does an absolutely amazing job…one of those movies where you come out of it with lots of good conversation and thoughts.
Unfortunately, I forgot my cam to bring to dinner…oops!
Susan sent out an e-mail with a rough outline of our JUNE BANFF TRIP! If you aren’t on the list, we missed you or decided you are interested, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will send you the info. Because let’s be real, how can you resist this picture?
Clearly, I stole that gem of a picture from Susan :).
Alright kiddos, it’s back to work for me tomorrow, and I am thinking an early bedtime is just the thing to start Tuesday off right. And yes, 8:30pm totally counts as an early bedtime.
What was the highlight of your weekend? Making major progress on my to-do list definitely makes me happy!
What is a fruit or veggie you are totally obsessed with right now? ORANGES! Sooooo gooooodddd!
