My knitting skills leave a lot to be desired. I saw this pattern for the coziest looking cowl scarf when I found the body scrub recipe. I knew I had to find someone to make it for me. Fortunately, the next day at work I realized that my friend Emily knows how to knit! How lucky is that? I proposed that she make it for me in return for drinks. She accepted. I had her make it shorter than the pattern calls for. I think she made it half of what it said to and it’s perfect! She also accidently twisted it before connecting the two ends. What a great mistake that turned out to be. It made a place for my chin to go so it doesn’t rub on the yarn. If you need a quick and easy project to give as a holiday gift, this scarf would be well
I bought a crate of clemintines the other day and haven’t been able to stop eating them since. I love how easy they are to peel and you don’t get the pith stuck under your nails.
Tonight I made some slow-roasted tomatoes. Tomorrow, I’ll be eating them on toasted flax seed bread smeared with goat cheese. I’m going to have dreams about these!
Sorry for the long delay in new posts. I have been very busy with work and had an unexpected quick trip to Iowa. The trip probably would have went faster had we not had to spend so long at the reststop looking for a lid for my vending machine coffee. Jeremiah thought it might have gotten stuck in the machine… Alas, no luck. I dumped out half of the coffee in the parking lot so it wouldn’t spill in the car and kept on truckin’. You’ve probably been waking up everyday since I last posted and have been wondering what I’m eating for breakfast. If that’s the case, worry no more, I’m going to tell you. I call it creamy pumpkin delight. I simply take fat-free vanilla Chobani Greek yogurt(my favorite) and add about 1/4 – 1/3 cup of pure pumpkin to it. It tastes like creamy pumpkin pie.
If you were wondering if I eat delightful meals everyday, I don’t. Some days I don’t even make it into the kitchen at all and it’s leftover central. Tonight my meal is very satisfying and tasty but highly unimpressive from a culinary standpoint. It is also helping me to clean out my fridge before I go to Columbus for the weekend. Take a look: – microwaved Boca vegan burger – heirloom tomato – bagged lettuce – basalmic and basil vinaigarette – whole wheat pita
After being introduced to Starfruit on the health and wellness tour, I have been wanting to get back there and make my own creation. Starfruit is a frozen kiefer concoction that contains 10 probiotics and is lactose-free, highly delicious, low-calorie and a little pricey. I got frozen pomegranate topped with blackberries, blueberries and raspberries.
Wow. After being on Blogger for six years, it was time for a move. I’ve brought my (recently lacking) blog over to WordPress. I am going to try to bring just my entries from this year over to WordPress and just have a link to the old business. It’s funny how my blog has changed over the years. It started as a way to keep my family and friends updated on my life after my “big” move to the big city. Now it has become much more food and recipe focused than humorous anecdotes of things my friends and I have done. I have really come to love cooking and baking. It’s a great stress reliever for me. So, here it is. Enjoy.
