Thanks for all of the get well wishes! I’m feeling a little better today. It seems like mornings are the worst for the sore throat, then I start to feel better as the day progresses. I’m still pretty congested, though, despite loads of vitamin C, Zyrtec and a sinus rinse. Blech.
I realized around 10 last night that I had 2 computer exercises due between today and tomorrow, meaning that I had to head to campus today. Lame. No worries, though, because I was awoken early anyway by some 1-800-Got-Junk guys (I spied on them through the blinds) that our next door neighbors hired to pick up some of their… um, junk. They were very loudly discussing Liam Neeson (??) in the driveway, which happens to be right next to our bedroom. Awesome.
Anyway, I made a fun bowl of oats this morning: blackberries, cashew butter, almonds and chocolate chips. And the rest of the Vitamin Water from yesterday.
The computer exercises ended up being pretty painless and I stopped by Newflower for some dinner fixin’s afterwards. Then my mom called to see if I wanted to meet for lunch at Jason’s Deli. I had the salad bar and vegetable soup (no photos, sorry… my cameraphone is all janky).
Chloe had a playdate today! My mom brought Sophie over and let her hang out for a while.
Chloe and Sophie love each other… sometimes a little too much, in Chloe’s case. But that’s another story. Look at her cute little backfat rolls! Aww, squishy pug.
For the past week I’ve been tempted to make cookies just so I could eat the dough. Today I settled on the Supercharge Me Cookies from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan.
These are GOOD. They’re more dense than most cookies, but full of goodies: coconut, oats, chocolate chips, raisins, maple syrup. And I only ate a few bites of the dough.
For dinner I made another recipe from the same cookbook: Garlicky Broccoli, Corn and Bean Burritos. The recipe uses a lot of pots and pans. Food processor for the black beans, skillet for the veggies, baking dish for the burritos… BUT I’d say it was worth it. Particularly since Brian does the dishes.
Served with limes and a side of orange slices.
And for dessert: cookies and milk, of course!
What are you reading right now?
I’m rereading Garlic and Sapphires for book club, and I’m also getting into Devil in the White City just for fun. So many books, so little time.
