Well, at least we have one miracle happening right now~~apparently, my grandpa only had a 20% chance of making it through the night last night (my mom didn’t tell me this for obvious reasons) but he’s a fighter to the bone and not only survived the night but is doing great! He’s now off life support, awake and talking and they are only keeping him in ICU for the next couple days to monitor. All the doctors just keep shaking their heads in amazement because he was really very close to death last night.
Of course I am thrilled and so is the rest of my family but I just don’t understand (and never will) why my little brother had to die. Where was his miracle? I keep telling myself everything happens for a reason and one day I’ll see him again.
Okay…on to much happier subjects! Food! I’m not going to go into great detail about my experience at The Tampa Bay Fine Wine and Food Festival this afternoon quite yet because I’m working on a whole review of my time there and will add on to it tomorrow after my mom and I go again. That post will be up Monday!
As for today, all I can say is that it was fun!
I got dressed up all pretty—
And stayed for about an hour and a half, walking about and taking notes. There’s only so much you can do when you are by yourself and driving so I am expecting tomorrow to be a lot MORE fun when my mama gets to come with me! Stay tuned on Monday for a long post with my complete coverage from the event (and to see everything I nibbled on!)! =)
Once home, I snacked on what might be the best thing yet—pb mousse with raspberry preserves and raw buckwheat crispies!
I used whatever was left in the big Fage container (maybe 3/4 cup?) and mixed it with 2 tbsp PB2. Topped it with raspberry preserves and a sprinkle of crispies and I was in heaven. SO good and satisfying!
Dinner was simple—
I had this pizza waiting at home while my dad picked up my mom from the airport. This was Greenwise pizza on a whole wheat crust with a mix of mozzarella cheese + goat cheese, black olives, onions and peppers. Delish!
I had two yummy slices—
And now I’m calling it a very early night because the alarm goes off at 5:20 tomorrow morning for my first Team in Training practice! Last month at this time, 5:20 would be “sleeping in” and now I’m dreading the alarm! Haha 😉 We meeting at a park about 30 minutes from my condo so I have to get up extra early. I think we are scheduled to run 4 miles tomorrow….not quite sure. I’m bringing watermelon to the potluck after! Wish me luck!
