Last night for girls night I made Angela’s whole grain carrot cake loaf! However, instead of spelt flour I used pastry flour…and instead of walnuts I used pecans…and I totally didn’t measure my raisins. It was so good that instead of being a good guest and leaving the leftovers for my friends to enjoy, I swiped the other half of the cake and totally ate it for breakfast this morning.
I hope I still have friends next week.
This morning I planted my second ever garden consisting of spinach, swiss chard and peas. I don’t really know how to do it. The last time I planted a garden I was nine and wearing a red checkered bonnet. However, I simply couldn’t wait for my radishes (or carrots) to grow, so I did what any impatient pioneer-wannabe kid would do: I dug everything up and ate it all too early. True story.
I’ve rekindled my love affair for juicing! I figured my juicer was taking as much space hidden down in the cabinet with all the pots and pans that I might as well leave it permanently out on the counter so I would actually use the thing. And my strategy worked! Having that huge metal appliance stare at me every morning has inspired me to make different delicious concoctions daily. So far, in the morning before breakfast I’ve been enjoying green juice (cucumber, apple, pear, parsley, romaine lettuce, lemon) and in the afternoons I’ve been drinking red juice (beet, apple, carrot, celery). Now the only problem is cleaning the thing.
I have hair extensions. Happy now? I told Adam that buying them was “the best $85 I have EVER spent” and he got mad because he’s been bugging me to spend $80 to replace my car battery. I told him that now if I get stranded on the side of the road I’ll at least have cool hair.
At least I have my priorities straight.
