It didn't take me a week this time-- only a day :) I'm quite proud of myself. This weekend I didn't work at all, which was very nice. I got to work on homework more, rest, cook and actually enjoy my weekend. Today was cold and foggy, which isn't unusual for where I live (Santa Cruz is always pretty foggy since it's along the coast-- cold water and air, you get the picture), but August and September are our warmest months of the year. It has been really warm out recently-- high 70s, 80s, but the last few days have cooled off with the fog coming in. It was a very lazy day on my part-- got some homework done, went to church, cooked up some yummy meals and like I said, just relaxed. I didn't even go out for a run this morning, or let alone do much exercise, which is unusual. But it's ok to not exercise a couple or even a few days during the week-- you're body needs a rest :). Finally after preparing my dinner, I went on a quick forty- five minute bike-ride around town. I was going to give myself a "day off from exercise", however I wanted to do something, so I went for a simple bike ride.
Riding around suburban neighborhoods, I smelled my favorite smells-- basically, I smelled "Sunday evening smells''. Dinner cooking, last- minute laundry, lunches being packed..... It got me missing going to elementary, junior high and or high school. Now that i'm in college, I don't have my parents making my lunch, doing my laundry, cooking my meals (however, I enjoy making my meals...it's fun to me), etc. I do miss that feeling though-- the "getting ready for the school week feeling". I do still live with my parents, but I do most of my own laundry, all my cooking and so on. And I do attend college, but my classes are scattered doing the week, different classes on different days, and it's quite different than high school.
Alright, enough of the cheese-ness-- let's get onto the food porn, or whatever you'd like to call it :)
Breakfast consisted of the rest of the kabocha squash I bought from WF, pureed however. I pureed it with lots of cinnamon and some almond milk and topped it off with almond butter, wheat germ and more cinnamon, just the way I like it.
It was SO sweet, with no sugar or anything added-- just love. <3
Lunch consisted of a grilled pita sammie with tempeh bacon (i put it to good use today) and lemon hummus; I also had a salad with greens, mushrooms and home-grown tomatoes with Annie's gingerly vinaigrette. I could NOT get my hands off that sammie, or "pitty", I didn't want it to end :)!
Hummus + bacon (tempeh bacon, that is)= amazing
For dinner, I made Caroline's kidney bean balls with tzatziki, I also had some chips with leftover lemon hummus from lunch. Twas quite a tasty supper.
I'm off to get ready for the week....goodnight :)
