I cannot.believe. that it is 8:00 pm on Saturday already! Where on earth has my day gone?! I haven’t even done anything worth anything! Oh, my life…
I guess it was filled with some preetttyyyy delicious eats, however 🙂
Ohhh, plum oats…how I love you so. Has anybody else done this yet? Please…do yourselves a favor. I know I say this about all my breakfasts lately: but I can’t get over how beautiful the plums turn! Which reminds me…totally forgot to buy more today.
On the Top: chia-seed acai icing, crystallized ginger, flax, 1/2 diced plum sauteed with sprinkle of sun crystals, shredded coconut, and sliced almonds, and Naturally Nutty White Choco Coconut
I woke up to a surprise snowfall this morning! I wasn’t sure if this would put a damper on my plans to run into town – but I decided it wasn’t enough to postpone the trip. That and, I wanted to get cleaning over with – and most of all, wanted to get my bloggie give-away items and have a Bed, Bath & Beyond rendezvous.
Grocery shopping and BB&B = my life-long loves.
I figured I would start with cleaning the office before the “fun stuff.” Otherwise, I’d never want to clean!
Or maybe it’s more a nifty-fifty obsession.
And knew a nanner was in order before tackling my missions, even though I found it strange I wasn’t hungry. It was a foreshadowing of the day ahead of me – my appetite has been nearly non-existent! Not cool, not cool.
The verdicts on shopping? BB&B has the coolest dishware sets, but I’m bummed that so many have to be purchased as such! I just want individual pieces-parts of each 😛 Which is really strange for me, because I like things to match. I used to want all the dishes to match. But now the foodie in me wants a different plate or bowl every time! Why am I so weird?
Hannafords verdict? ohhhhh, you’ll see 🙂 Tomorrow I do believe I will be posting a giveaway that I have been promising all week! Just for kicks 🙂
I decided to take the scenic route home since I was out of the house early and finished everything I needed to do in town early, too: by 11am! Again: what kind of college kid am I?! Remember: there was a one hour commute each way involved here – not ten minute!
Fueled only by the best. Because who doesn’t want an Almond Butter and Jam Muffin, whether you’re hungry or not?!
Came home and caught up on blogs, while messing around with my own layout. I started getting really frustrated because I wanted to change up the layout, but just had too many dilemmas! I’m too picky when it comes to graphic-design-y things. Everything has to be perfect. So I’m leaving it at this: I’d really like to have a layout that supports the caption-box function, but couldn’t really decide on one that met my other requirements and the foodbuzz publisher requirements. Ohhh, well.
Eventually it was lunch time, and since I wasn’t really craving anything (okay, veggies, as usual) I figured it”d be best to work on using up some of the crab and shrimp meat I opened last night.
And it was quite good! I made a quick little salad with the meat, some greek yogurt, lime juice, dash of mesquite BBQ sauce, parmesan, diced tomato, diced red pepper, and diced red onion, and s&p. With spinach in a wrap.
The rest of the afternoon consisted of ANTM, watching and listening to the snow melt, playing with the puppers, and bloogie stuffs. A kiwi with yogurt and granola was also consumed but I accidentally formatted my card thinking I had gotten them on the computer already. Shnoops.
The snow was so beautiful this morning – but now it looks like we never even got any! It got quite warm by the time I was getting home from running those errands even, so it didn’t last long. We may be getting another on Wednesday, though. Works for me – snow day Thursday?! Hah – wishful thinking. My college just about never cancels. Really stinks for commuters.
Dinner was another dilemma: Ready for a story?
Remember these meatballs? AKA – my favorite meatballs ever? Well, I made a batch of them with the other half of the ground turkey meat from the asian meatballs since they are so good. I thought I’d make a noodle dish with them, too – but then decided I wanted a meatball sub! This becomes a problem when you only have spelt bread, pitas, whole wheat wraps, sandwich thins, and english muffins to work with. So I settled on “italian meatball enchiladas” – a yours truly concoction.
But – as I was making the sauce for them – thought it’d be fun to instead try it with tvp in place of the meat! So that is what I did 🙂
These were seriously delicious. Like, ten times better than I was expecting. It almost reminded me of lasagna for some reason, too? But – a definite make again, for sure 🙂
But – that is all for me!
What’s a meal that you’ve randomly thrown together that ended up being one of your favorites?
