There is nothing better than getting an e-mail before you go to bed saying that your first class has been canceled- especially when it’s math :)
Since my next class wasn’t until 10:15, I had time to go the gym before school and not wake up at the crack of dawn. I did 10 minutes on every machine until I hit an hour. I ran on the treadmill for 10 minutes and ran a sub- 8:00 minute mile! I got up to 9 miles an hour at one point- I was pretty sure I was going to fly off the machine!
I made Katie’s voluminous oatmeal last night before going to bed, and all I had to do was reheat it, add a little cocoa powder, top it with some ricotta, and breakfast was done!
I’m pretty sure this recipe was made for someone like me that likes to eat as much as possible in one sitting. I couldn’t believe how HUGE this bowl was! I normally eat salads out of that bowl- look how full it was!
Lunch was eaten in my car on the way to Costco! Nothing special- just a sandwich and two clementines. I got a ton of stuff at Costco, including apples (I was all out! How does that happen?!) and almond butter! It was only five bucks for a huge jar- my mom is going to be very happy :)
I also restocked on Vitatops and strawberries, and had to include them in my snack.
I was watching the Food Network a few days ago, and came across the show The Best Thing I Ever Ate. That got me thinking about what the best thing I’ve ever eaten was. I have no clue what it is- but I can tell you that my dinner was probably the best thing I’ve eaten in recent memory!
If there was a The Best Thing I Ever Ate: Squash, I would definitely talk about this dish. Y’all know I’m a huge kabocha fan, but this butternut squash was not to be believed! I made Carrie’s best roasted butternut squash combo, and words cannot describe how good this was. I know I say that about everything… but seriously.
This tastes like pumpkin pie! I used maple syrup instead, and the combination of sweet squash, maple syrup, tofu, pumpkin pie spice and peanut flour butter was out of this world.
The only bad thing about eating the entire squash is no leftovers! I guess I’ll have to buy some more :)
My dinner was nice and sweet, but dessert was essential! This was inspired by Bobby Flay.
I saw him make a root beer float this morning and I happened to have both vanilla ice cream and diet root beer at home. Makes me feel like a kid again :)
What’s the best thing you’ve eaten lately?
