Long time no write! I suppose I’ll blame the holiday season, yada yada.
Lunch was reheated lentil soup. Yes, I made Giada De Laurentiis’ lentil soup again. Again I forgot to halve the recipe. It makes a ton.
There is so much chocolate in my office!
I went to Whole Foods at lunch and bought a few things, including Agave Nectar, which I just tried for the first time. It tastes good, but I’ll see if it can replace white sugar long term in my coffee. That’s what I’m mostly concerned with: the amount of sugar I drink in my coffee. I don’t know if Agave is better for the teeth and gums.
Highlights of the days I missed:
1.Waffles topped with pear and walnut (the top one is mine, but the boyfriend’s picture might be a little better – his is on the black plate.)
2. Wine and cheese spread at my parents’ house on Sunday. This is all we ate for lunch, although we had plans for a more substantial meal. Vegetables, cheese, hummus, artichoke dip, crackers, and wine. Lots and lots of wine. (there was more cheese than this, but my picture turned out weird…)
It’s an odd thing to be excited about, I suppose, but I had been craving this. The McDonalds close to my work doesn’t make the best salads in my opinion. There were no tortilla strips, lime wedges, and I think something else was missing. I’m just grateful for the black beans and roasted corn. Yum!
4. I made a Saints themed dip for work late last week. I confess, the fleur-de-lis was actually made by Mr. Greens. I toiled over the other 7 layers though.
5. Wheat bagel sandwich – on Friday I stopped and got a whole wheat bagel with garden veggie cream cheese. I proceeded to doctor it up in a great way, by adding nice lettuce and carrots (I had a small leftover salad in my fridge that didn’t have dressing on it). It was crunchy and tasty.
Must remember this combination!
6. I tried a Peanut Butter and Jelly Mojo Bar. Hmmm…it’s sweet and salty, but doesn’t hold me over as much as I would like.
Okay I was originally going for 10 highlights, but I don’t think I have enough material. In parting, here’s a picture of me and my cat reading a book about sushi making. Very interesting, I assure you.
