This week has been crazy busy at work (but in a good way), and I don’t even get the weekend free! We’ve broken the every other weekend pattern of Saturday night hammer tapping and will be heading back tomorrow. But at least we should be able to finish tomorrow 🙂
This morning I wasn’t very hungry, so I started off with a slice of cinnamon raisin bread spread with almond butter.
Then I mixed up a HUGE (1L!) brown monster, including a new ingredient. In the mix went lotsa kale, two carrots, a giant banana, half a pint of blackberries, and the last of my brazil nut milk (1.5 cups?), plus a bit of ice. It was delicious, and it lasted me all through work, and into the afternoon.
When I got home I was offered these beautiful cookies, made by my roomie. Ginger crinkles are my absolute favourite cookie, so obviously, I had to have one…or two (they were small!). They were good, but not quite as good as my mama’s recipe, but worth it none the less. I really need to get that recipe from her. And before the old note card in the recipe box completely fades would be a good idea too….
I put up something I was entirely unimpressed with this afternoon. I went to pick up a package at the post office, but I had no idea what it could be. Turns out it was the sample pack of Amazing Grass I ordered, but it arrived in the most ridiculous manner.
The actual packet would fit perfectly in a regular old envelope (maybe a bit too heavy, but that only costs an extra dollar or two), but for some reason, they were shipped in a giant box, and held in place with plastic wrapped air! Not only is this not the most environmentally friendly shipping approach, it isn’t exactly the most fiscally responsible choice either. The shipping was free for me, but I can’t imagine what the Amazing Grass people were thinking paying $18 to ship something worth $3, when it would have been just as easy to ship it for less (or even easier, they would have saved me a trip to the post office with limited opening hours if it fit in my mail box).
Anyways, for dinner I finished the last piece of meat (of mine, but not including fish) in the freezer. I cooked up the some organic, 100% grass fed beef, then chopped up the pieces, mixed them with ketchup, mustard, and relish, and used them as a topping for a burger salad. The base was red leaf lettuce, yellow pepper, and the last kumato that for some reason had escaped consumption all week long.
Now I’m off to revel in the discovery that is the begining of a new season of Torchwood. I love me some good old scifi TV. (I’m missing Stargate this summer!) But first, you all should NOT enter Gina’s awesome Living Raw Food giveaway, because I’m just a little in love with S&M, but the book is just a bit too expensive for my money conscious brain to handle, and it’d be WAY easier to have my own copy than to lurk in the bookstore!
