Let this be a lesson to you all…
I broke out of my banana and fig overnight oats this morning, and it just didn’t cut it. The cashew butter cut it.
The blueberries cut it.
The oats cut it.
Together, they didn’t cut it, especially when I had bananas and figs in the back of my mind.
Don’t yell at me just yet for taking the blueberries out of hiding for another day, though! It was just to break my rut. Which, I can now go running back to after scaring myself of ever abandoning the banana and fig overnighters ever again.
Luckily, I was wise enough to not mess with a good thing when it came to lunch, though. I had to have another “Thanksgiving in a sandwich.” This one was even better! It consisted of seitan, baby spinach, dried cranberries, red onion, and rosemary sauce on some delicious homemade honey-oat wheat bread.
Morning snack was a banana and some vanilla almonds. You know I’d have to make up for my banana-less breakfast somewhere along the line!
And a ginger birdseed bar for the afternoon.
Today flew by…and the weather was so tempting me to just stay with Teddie when I saw him this morning. So not fair, because tomorrow’s going to be a complete washout.
On another note, the customers at work started to seriously get on my nerves. Sometimes I swear people come in who are totally…I don’t want to say sexist, because I think maybe my age has to do with it. But they’ll always ask for one of my bosses to help them even with stupid, simple stuff that I am totally capable of. And when I say “oh, it’ll be a while, is it something I could help you with?” the “brave” ones still treat me like I want to ruin whatever it is they’re doing because I obviously don’t know the first thing about cameras, even if I do work there.
But, does anyone else ever get that “oh, you’re a young woman, you obviously don’t know, and if you do I don’t trust you anyway.” If so, how do you deal with it?
Lately I don’t care as much, just say okay and let them wait minutes on end before my boss frees up. Although it’s a bit ironic because if it’s something a bit more complex like digital work, I’m probably the one who’s going to do it anyways.
But, stuffed buttercup squashes always make up for picky people. I made some cheater baked beans this time. I really love that buttercup squash – it’s going to be hard to play favorites and decide what squash I like best 😉
Sorry for being short and sweet tonight – but I gotta run!
How do you deal with people who doubt you, or treat you like you don’t know how to count backwards from ten?
What’s your longest food “rut”? (although, let me say this – if you enjoy it, I don’t consider food repetition a rut! Banana-fig oats are far too delicious to call a rut!)
