Bad news bears.
We had a major coffee spillage in my purse and it broke my camera. Seriously.
All the pictures I took still came out because it didn’t effect my memory card, but the camera lense is shot. Bah!!! I’m still debating what to do……….technically I could go to best buy tomorrow after work and buy a NEW camera but then I might not be able to eat for the next month. I’m not sure what to do. The camera still WORKS (as in it still takes pictures) but the screen which you look at you take a picture is totally black because of liquid damage…..so basically, all my photos are now “free for alls” which I blindly take pictures of food. Not really good for my food blogger profession, now is it? 🙁 And no, sadly the camera is not under warranty. Double boo.
okay. enough of my whining—–on to my day! Which was pretty good until the broken camera and wet purse bit. This morning I woke up to find the temperature outside had dropped 25 degrees!!! LOVE IT!!! Can you say, hello new cute sweaters from anthropologie?! 😉 For breakfast I made a big yogurt bowl with a cup of Oikos plain nonfat, 2/3rds cup puffins, 2 tbsp Udi’s Granola, 1 banana and a big spoonful of peanut butter:
For lunch, I brought a “baked tofu sandwich” on an Arnold’s Sandwich thin with provolone:
However—-it was GROSS and I only ate half because I got served a steaming hot bowl of tomato basil soup at work:
One of the sous chefs asked me if I would like to “try” this and of course I said yes! Little did I know I would get such a whopping size portion! Perfect for lunch! It was aaaaaamazing.
I brought a kashi bar and a pear for snacks:
And I ate the bar mid-morning and the pear with my soup.
When I got home at 3:00, I snacked on a pure protein bar, which I don’t have a picture of because this was mid-coffee disaster. Sorry!
And then at 4:00, Betty and I were off to see The Secret Life of Bees. LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!! Loved, loved, loved it! I loved the book and the movie did not disappoint. I just love movies like that, don’t you?! Exactly what I needed today! After the movie, we went to The French Quarter (a cutesy cajun restaurant here) for dinner.
*******all pictures from here on out are taken 100% blindly so they are a little askew!*****
The restaurant prides itself on the “best Caesar salad in Vero Beach” so I just HAD to try it!
On the table was toasted herbed garlic bread with olive oil to dip. I had one piece:
And for my entree, I chose the Blackened Shrimp. One of my favorites! It came with two crabcakes, a fried green tomato, potato gratin and roasted veggies.
It was amazing!!!!! I ate all the shrimp, most of the veggies, half of the fried green tomato, a couple huge bites of the potato gratin and a crab cake and a half. I am completely STUFFED right now! I also had about a glass and a half of wine at dinner. A great treat! 🙂
As for my day, it was busy as usual! Especially so since Adam took the day off and left another long list! 🙂 I started by baking rolls and olive focaccia:
And then I baked toooons of cookies!!!
(and ate a few chocolate chips in the process. Obvi)
I baked a pumpkin pie, a key lime tart and another delish apple oat tart:
And a flourless chocolate cake!
Mini blueberry muffins for tomorrow:
And, finally more pumpkin whoopie pies!
It’s 8:45 and I’m about to get in bed and read. So sorry for the camera problems……I’m frustrated beyond belief because I don’t know if I should just suck it up and wait for Christmas to ask a family member for a new one, or go buy a new one so I can actually see what I’m taking a picture of. I seem to have problems with technology, especially computers and camera. I think I was meant to live in like 1945 or something where people just read books. In the meantime, I WILL continue to take pictures of everything regardless but please just bear with me because its hard to take the perfect food shot when I can’t see anything. Bah.
