Feeling Frisky

Tuesdays might just be my new favorite day!

Every Tuesday during the summer there is live music in the big park a few blocks from my old house in Healdsburg. Right when I left things started to become really cool there. What gives? Why did I move again?

Oh yeah, to be closer to Target. I remember now.

Music in the park is actually quite the outing and last week there had to have been hundreds of people there. There’s dancing, drinking, eating, frolicking…. People pack picnics and bring wine and it’s just a really fun time. I went last Tuesday but forgot my camera. Tonight I will try to remember. It’s hard sometimes when wines involved.

This morning I had a late breakfast of waffles with egg whites and maple syrup and…watermelon!

It really wasn’t that photogenic but I promise it was good. I love me some watermelon and often times feel like I gain at least nine pounds in water weight because of it.
I went to the gym for legs and cardio and then ate some lunch.

Have I been eating a lot of tomato soup lately or is it just me??? I’m full on addicted to Trader Joe’s tomato bisque and it’s even better topped with creamy goat cheese. On the side I had a bell pepper and hummus and some iced Tazo Passion tea with agave. I keep a big pitcher of this stuff (I make it myself) at all times in the fridge and often add a splash of POM juice to it for a fruity twist if I’m feeling frisky.

    I love adding POM to different things. It’s a great addition to seltzer water too. 😀

    Love your egg white & waffle creation. I could definitely use some more waffles in my life. 😀

    ooo! I am a huge fan of the Passion tea both hot and cold. Do you use the ‘iced’ teabags or the regular. If you use the regular, can you tell me how you do it. I am struggling with the correct balance. Thanks!

      I always just use 4 teabags to fill the pitcher….and just regular tea bags, not iced. 🙂

      well, these are more hills than mountains (although when I first moved here I called them mountains, too). The biggest difference is when I’m running or riding my bike outside…MUCH different than the flat, flat Florida land I grew up on! I love it though!

    Ooh, I’ve never tried Trader Joe’s Tomato Bisque! I’m making a trip there this afternoon, so I might have to pick some up! I bet it’s amazing topped with goat cheese!

    I think moving closer to Target is always a good idea! I feel like I’m there all the time!!

    I like Tuesdays as well! They are the most productive days of the week (so I read somewhere — they did sciencey-stuff to figure it out!). Also, your waffles look just like my breakfast most days 🙂

    I love TJ’s tomato (I had to delete the e b/c I have Dan Quail’s spelling skills) bisque too! You could chill it and call it gazpacho for the summer. 🙂

    I often forget things like being a responsible blogger when wine is involved too. Happens to the best of us!

    That iced tea sounds soo good! How exactly do you make it? I know it’s simple, but there are different methods to making iced tea so I was just wondering 😉

      All I do is boil a tea kettle full of water and then fill my pitcher with it + 4 tea bags and a big squirt of agave. After about four minutes, I take the tea bags out and just put the pitcher in the fridge overnight. I don’t use ice because I don’t have an ice maker!

        Just FYI- you can skip the boil step, I swear! I put tea bags + COLD filtered water into my pitcher every night, put the pitcher in the fridge, and have tasty tea in the morning. And I use regular old tea bags, not a fancy “iced” kind. I do, however, use ~ 4bags per cup of water.
