Good evening 🙂
Today was quite a success. I worked, I wrote, I grocery shopped, I did yoga and I even roasted a chicken!
I like to stay busy…what can I say?! To find out the secret of my chicken roasting, turn to my latest True/Slant article on the subject. 🙂
This morning I snacked on a banana with almond butter before stopping by work for a few hours….
I left work and just stopped by the general store for a sandwich on the run. This was SO GOOD!
It was roasted turkey breast, pepperjack cheese, muhammara spread, red onion, lettuce, tomato and mustard…all on hot sourdough bread. I inhaled it…obviously.

During the afternoon, I wrote and roasted my chicken. I felt like such a little Julia, far away from the French homeland (or Florida homeland rather). I’m telling you…for being pretty much circa 1912, this oven I’ve got here is DANG powerful!!! Like woah.
I hit up a 5:30 power yoga flow class a few blocks away…it was good…made me really really REALLY miss my studio back home though. I just need to give it time…I’m going to try a few different studios to see what I like the best. For me, it’s all about the feeling you get when you walk in. I’m one of those people that makes sort of life changing decisions rather…fast. What can I say? I know myself quite well and when I know what I want, I go after it with all my heart. No need to play games or momo around. This is life, people. Same goes with yoga studios. We shall see.
Dinner was previously roasted chicken plus roasted brussels and carrots!
Mmmmmm this was such a homey little meal….and roast chicken is amazing when dipped in dijon mustard. Mustard + hot sauce…two condiments I would never want to ever live without.
And now…I have a new favorite cookie!
No words. Now I know I tend to get (ahem) really excited about food quite often. I could actually talk about food for hours on end and am actually quite boring on dates because all I do is pick apart my dinner and the restaurant (perhaps that’s why I have a lack of dates?! just kidding). Anyways, these cookies are faaaaabulous. They are flaky, buttery and full of almonds. I could probably eat the entire box but I settled with just one, which I topped with a piece of organic milk chocolate with salted almonds muahahahaha
I’m going to have to hide these from myself. Somehow.
Big storm is coming in tonight off the coast….I’m bundling up and battering down. The heat still isn’t fixed and currently I’m wallowing around my attic wearing all too many pieces of my closet topped with a big north face jacket, clutching a mug of tea. The story of my life. Have I mentioned how much I miss Dexter?! 🙁
