Surprisingly Sugary Foods

It’s the third day of my Vegetarian Challenge! I made a delicious yogurt bowl for breakfast this morning.  I started with a base of vanilla yogurt and added 1/2 of a banana, vanilla granola, and a spoonful of peanut butter.  I loved eating it, and Miles loved licking my spoon when I was done. I [...]

Bowl of Oats

Shoes On My Chair

Sung to the tune of Pants on the Ground Shoes on my chair Shoes on my chair My feet are bare Got my shoes on my chair My shoes were a little too tight, because I bought a size too small and because they haven’t been worn in a while.  Had to use the old [...]

You Spin Me Right Round

I used some of the leftover meat sauce to make my own version of a Sloppy Joe. I had an eye doctor appointment and got hooked up with a fresh pair of contacts.  Finally!  It’s been wayyyy too long.  I also bought a small box full so I can keep changing my contacts every few [...]

Read, Sweat, Snack

I hit the gym for 30 minutes of pedaling on the recumbent bike.  While I worked out, I read Eat Pray Love. I’m really liking this book, though I’m still in the first of three sections.  I can’t wait to finish and give it my full review.  Also can’t wait to watch the movie version [...]

Blame It On the Rain

It’s drizzly and dreary in Boston.  That’s definitely why I’m not in the mood to do anything besides curl up on the couch and watch all of my shows on the DVR. Before leaving my parents’ house last night, I made a turkey sandwich with the last of their leftovers. And had plenty of room [...]

The Biggest Winner

More pieces of leftover pizza for lunch.  Here’s an extreme close up of the chicken, broccoli, and artichoke goodness. I almost skipped the gym today, but Jared convinced me to go.  I was supposed to do my strength circuit and then run 1 mile on the treadmill.  Because I wasn’t in the mood to go [...]

Spooky Scary

In the spirit of Halloween, I made my first batch of pumpkin oatmeal. I mixed 1/2 cup of oatmeal with cinnamon, brown sugar, and a heaping tablespoon of pumpkin.  I topped it with a dollop of cream cheese that tasted amazing when blended into the bowl.  So yummy! Beautiful autumn day in Boston!!!  It’s typically [...]

Hello, Cupcake!

Lunch was a turkey sandwich that Jared kindly prepared while I was doing my makeup. My meeting did NOT go well.  Boooo to the Woods School.  But at least a few candy pumpkins made me feel better. I crunched on some baby carrots. I had to install Office 2007 so while my computer was hard [...]

Mission Accomplished

Another attempt to create delicious stove top oats.  This was my best recipe so far! I made 1/2 cup of oatmeal.  While it was still cooking on the stove, I added cinnamon, brown sugar, and blueberry flax seed.  I liked adding flavors this way because the heat helped everything melt together.  I added a tiny [...]
