Whew! Has Sunday flown by for everyone else, too?! I feel like I’ve done nothing, yet when I think about it, I was pretty productive in that I accomplished a lot of little things that needed to be done, like making up some business cards and working on my photo website, and finishing up senior portraits. And some play-time, of course!
In the Mix: 2 T. rolled barley flakes, 2 T. TVP, couple slices banana, grated carrot, ginger, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, goji berries
On the Top: same icing with pineapple as from yesterday, toasted coconut, raisins, flax, grated carrot, crystallized ginger, strawberry-pom preserves, and Cinnamon-Raisin PB
This was a great start to the day. Afterwards I got to work mocking up some business cards to post up around. I’d really like to try and start getting my name out for senior portraits, or even if anyone is interested in artwork for their cafe or little local gallery or something like that. I’m not sure if that’s just me having high hopes, however.
Is there any reader interested in graphic design? I’d love some feedback 🙂
My mom wins the mom of the century award. She picked me up a new yogi tea and a big bag of chopped Kale! I didn’t even see the stuff that was already chopped, rinsed, and bagged the other day – I only saw the organic stuff. Regardless; she tried some of my Kale chips and loved them too. I guess this is a hint, hint, nudge, nudge to make some more – and you’ll see that I certainly obliged!
I’m always tempted by the Yogi Teas when I’m looking at the tea section, but they don’t have many Chais and were a touch on the expensive side (though only in comparison to those on sale) so would always pass – I’m very picky about my herbals! I had some orange spice tea for the first time at my mom’s office and really liked it. So she saw this and grabbed it for me!
And it is so good! I had it with some almond milk and really enjoyed it. It’s not quite as orangey as the other kind I’d had was – in fact, if it was a touch more orangey I think it’d be perfect – but it is definitely a winner nonetheless. And I love the little sayings on the tag 🙂
And a kiwi! I always am under the impression that kiwis are more expensive than they are since they’re in the exotic fruits section. So I always forget about them! But I remembered yesterday. Love kiwis! Though I think I’m the only blogger left who doesn’t eat the skin? I’ve honestly never even thought to eat the skin of a kiwi…though I suppose since they are full of nutrients and fiber – it wouldn’t hurt to start 🙂
Lunch was, once again, something spectacular
I used to be obsessed with basil, tomato, and mozzarella flavors, and pretty much italian flavors in general. For some reason, I’ve been forgetting about them lately and opting for spicy foods. Maybe it has to do with the weather?
Whatever it is, I definitely need to bring them back into my life! If only you could smell this wrap as I was cutting it! Fresh basil, mozzarella, slight touch of garlic…oh, it was heavenly. Sure, it was almond mozzarella, but I really enjoy that mozarella – and like I’ve mentioned, I’m a mozarella stickler.
Afterwards I was still chained to my computer messing with the website, photos, and tweaking the card. A graphic designer can work on the same thing for eons, if you let them. Nothing is ever complete! Don’t worry, though – hummus, pretzels, trail mix, and tea kept me very good company.
Eventually, I needed to get out of the house. I decided to throw together an applesauce mess – because I’m weird – and then go on a little galavant out back.
Applesauce, crumbled AB cookie, crumbled mate bar, trail mix, almond butter, snyders butter snap pretzels (essential), crumbled kashi bar, and spelt bread. All heated and melty and love-y.
I have a mish-mash bag of bars solely for this purpose. I love mixing bits of everything! hah.
Time to explore!
We got back in time for the horse’s dinner – which meant it was almost time to start making ours, too!
Dinner tonight was salmon! Does everyone remember when I made Flaked Salmon with a Blueberry Raspberry Dijon Glaze? Well – that’s what tonight was! I changed it up a little bit just for simplicity, but it was still just as amazing as last time.
This time – rather than having two seperate pots – I added the blueberries right to the pan I cooked the salmon in. And, instead of using the raspberry dijon mustard, I used the maine maple dijon. The salmon was just seasoned with salt, pepper, and chili powder. I had mine in a flax pita with spread cheese, spinach, and some chopped walnuts.
Easy and delish!
Now I’m watching hockey! USA vs. Canada. Any other hockey fans? I wouldn’t say I’m a huge fan – but I definitely like watching it and always hear about it from my boss, haha.
How was everyone else’s Sunday? What was the highlight of your weekend?
and also – a question for those of you used to wordpress: I’ve noticed when I’m inserting a photo and a caption, the caption shows up in a nice little box around the image in my preview, but not once it’s published. Is there a setting I need to change in order for it to show up like this when my post is published? Input greatly appreciated 🙂
