Thank you all for such sweet comments on my last post. I was in a contemplative mood last night, I suppose! 😉
Anyways, here’s a recap of my day yesterday….shocked that the little camera still has a teeny tiny bit of juice left in it…hopefully the big daddy camera will arrive soon!!
Church was great yesterday. Really. Right where I’m supposed to be, I could just feel it. And, there’s a produce stand at church where they just giveaway amazing organic veggies. Ummm hello??! My kind of place. I picked up a pumpkin and some tomatoes, of course! After church I met Michaela, who is seriously my long lost soulmate, for brunch at Bruno’s on 4th. I met Michaela back in July during the Murphy-Goode festivities and we’ve kept in touch ever since. We sat and talked food, life, writing, guys, wine…everything for over an hour and we are now planning a massive “eat-and-shop-till-you-drop” weekend in San Francisco next month. Tentative plan: Chez Panisse, dim sum, tacos, falafel, yoga, Jcrew, Banana Republic, Loehmanns and more. I.can’t.wait.
Brunch was un-freakin-believable.
I got the smoked chicken omelet (made with egg whites) with caramelized onions and pepperjack cheese. It came with the best home fries I’ve ever tasted (we both agreed they were made with bacon grease. Yup) and an english muffin. It was all I could do to keep from licking my plate.
Made a pit-stop at the promised land tj maxx and then a farm stand for some produce and local milk (1% this time…not soy for a change) on my way home. Took a 50 minute walk out in the sunshine and tapped it off with 25 minutes of sun salutations in my living room. Glorious.
Dinner was t-t-t-ofu!
An oldie but goodie. Classic baked tofu with a sweet tater and salad. For the tofu, all I did was rub a mixture of sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, ground ginger, sea salt, cayenne and agave (eyeballed it) on the pieces and then bake at 375 for 30 minutes, flipping once. Lots of my favorite condiments to be had: hot sauce & ketchup on the tofu and hot sauce & butter on the sweet potato. 😉
After I ate, I took another walk downtown, bought coffee (I was all out!) and a small hot chocolate, and sat in the park and journaled. When I got home, I ate a windmill cookie that escaped the camera’s eye.
Wrote some more and went to bed fairly early. This morning I woke UP early, made some green tea and started working on an article due tomorrow. I finally got around to breakfast around 7:15…
Yummy overnight oats made with milk, yogurt, banana, cinnamon, almond butter and maple syrup. Makes me happy.
Sipping my coffee now and working on that article….about to shower and head into work (today is MY Friday since I have tuesday and wednesday off).
