Sometimes I…

5 Sep

I want to start something new. “Sometimes I” Sundays. And, as Labor Day, today practically counts as Sunday, right?

Sometimes I eat way too much oatmeal and run the house out of anything but frozen blueberries.

Sometimes I make the ghetto-cousin of sweet potato fries: carrot chips.

Sometimes I line things up in size order even though they were all mixed up in a bowl and it takes way too much time. Sometimes I immediately pull them out of the oven and into a garbled heap on my lunch plate too.

Sometimes I have tea parties with my sister, drink way too much caffeine, and find pictures of myself making stupid faces later.

Sometimes I make pretty designs in my oatmeal for no particular reason. Sometimes I take a picture of my oatmeal while I’m walking up the stairs because I’m hungry and want to eat it now.

 

On an unrelated note, sometimes I plan spontaneous trips to Arizona. Won’t be able to update tomorrow because I’ll be in the middle of a desert!

Random Eats

Things I’ve eaten in the past 48 hours

A bland cranberry oatmeal.

Despite looking like one of the more attractive oatmeal breakfasts, this was… eurgh.

Some extremely colorful lunch dishes. Carrot pureed soup, salad and multigrain bread. I’m going to be straight with you, I ran my spoon through that soup dish at least 20 times trying to make the swirls look swirlier. Doesn’t it look sort of like a rose? Is it just me because I spent so much time looking at it?

Half a Bali Indonesian Wrap from the Veggie Grill. It was sort of bland to be honest, I smothered it in Annie’s BBQ sauce. I DO love tempeh though. I’ve got to see about buying and preparing some myself.

Watery cranberry oatmeal too. I am SO sick of cranberries but I don’t feel right not eating oatmeal in the morning.  I made tomorrows with absolutely NO cranberries, thank goodness!

I had lots of other snacks and such. Including way too much dark chocolate because that is my movie theatre snack of choice and I saw two movies: Midnight in Paris and Fright Night. I was scared to death during Fright Night but my friend-that’s-a-boy-but-not-exactly-a-boyfriend-but-pretty-much-as-close-as-it-gets made a really cute recommendation. He couldn’t make it to the movie so he told me to hold my phone because he would be holding his and it would be like holding each other’s hands. Adorable and cheesy, right?

I definitely prefered Fright Night though, there were just NO likable characters in Midnight in Paris. Everyone was too romantic/idealistic or too factual and… sigh. Both were fun though. Great way to celebrate my sister’s birthday!

Valentine’s Oats

1 Sep

If nothing else, I found a recipe to make on Valentine’s Day! Raspberries, chia seeds, oats and almond milk! It wasn’t my favorite but not bad either.

For lunch, I had leftovers of that tofu, okra, tomato sauce dish last night. I cannot get enough of it! Especially with a piece of bread ripped up and mixed it, like a perfect stew.

In honor of the first of September and therefore, the first of fall (in my mind), I made Curried Carrot Soup! Carrots, onion, garlic, curry and sesame oil is all it needed but I also added some chickpeas for protein. It was the most colorful dinner I had in awhile.

All through through the day, I must’ve had at least 5 figs. My tongue feels SO odd right now, all tingly!

I was exhausted all day today, remind me not to stay up until 1 am on Skype! It’s becoming an almost nightly thing these days.

I finished another chapter of my summer homework and just have one left. I am NOT going to have a fun time in these classes, I think I got myself into a little bit too deep water.

We’ll see!
