Who else isn’t quite sure how it is Friday already? The past couple weeks have floowwwnnn by!
I almost forgot about our sweet monster vs. salty beast battle on Tuesday (sweet won hands down, by the way).
Remember Wednesday? That’s when we all shared some killer food photography tips, including:
Caroline, who recommends using lots of color in photographs;
Alison, who reminds us that pictures that are blurry are just capturing real life;
Susan, who suggests taking lots of pictures so that when it comes to blogging, you have lots to choose from;
Cindy, who says to avoid sticky-fingered toddlers so the lens stays clean;
and, Morgan, who suggests clearing the background of clutter to the food is center stage.
On Thursday, my favorite Michael Pollan stopped by (kind of) and reminded us of the greater issues surrounding food. Everyone had some AMAZING things to say – I suggest you all take some time to read them!
Alrighty, on to today’s eats!
I went straight-up K-style with Reese’s oats this morning. Amazing.
1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup water + 1/3 cup organic skim milk
small handful dark chocolate chips
hearty drizzle of peanut butter
Chocolate + peanut butter = one of the best combinations to hit planet Earth ever.
It was good, but for me, there were too many ingredients, too much sugar and most likely, too pricey.
My friend Brett and I declared Friday our lunch date day at the Indian buffet. Yeah, that’s right. At the Indian buffet. It is dangerously amazing territory for two reasons: (1) Indian is my fave food, and (2) it’s a buffet. Nuff’ said.
veggie salad in yogurt dressing
black bean daal
chicken tikka masala
aloo gajar (potatoes + carrots)
Sorry for a case of the blurrs – it was dark in the restaurant, and I was salivating over my plate too much to actually take the time to take a proper picture.
My boss told me to leave early today – woowoo! So I was home by 4pm, where I proceeded to enjoy this rainy, drizzly day by watching Wednesday night’s episode of Glee (LOVE this show) followed by two episodes of The Office (obv). I heart rainy days. It gave me the excuse to not run 3 miles and instead, let me enjoy a football team’s rendition of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” and after, let me stare at John Krasinski for two episodes.
Part of dindin was a quick snack plate: orange pepper, zucchini, TJ”s mini pitas + hummus.
Now, I am munching on trail mix and realizing I need to be productive before the big wedding tomorrow (yes, another one). List includes:
- Clean the kitchen + bathroom
- Order wedding present online
- Look over insurance papers
- Yoga stretches
- Phone calls to some of my ladies
- Put paper bags over parking meters (to reserve for the wedding tomorrow)
- Look for a weekend/part-time job
- Get up at 6am and run 8 miles
I love making to-do lists yet hate them because I never actually accomplish them. Yeah..I think we had this convo on Monday.
Alrighty kiddos, enjoy your weekend and see you on Sunday!
