After a crazy week of appointments, meetings, sickness, and every-day stress. It is finally the weekend!
There is something so liberating about knowing that you are free for two whole days. Free to do as you wish with no expectations or pressure from anyone else. Got to love that feeling!
Today started with a let’s get through one more day kick-start: Coffee oats
Oh so decadent and rich!
1/2 cup brewed coffee
Splash of milk
1 banana, smashed
1 Tbsp. cottage cheese
Dribble of hazelnut flavored coffee syrup
Dash of salt
coconut flakes, ground hazelnuts, flax, hemp, cinnamon, and nutella
I had another appointment this morning with the jaw doctor. Pretty much a waste of my morning, but at least he was making sure that all was well. He referred me to yet another doctor to have a night brace made to prevent nighttime clenching. Thinking about a night brace produces frightening flashbacks of my metal, behind the neck, hook into the braces horror movie-like corrective device from my 13th year of life. Let’s hope I’m not heading down a path as dark and terrifying as that again!
Morning snack consisted of a sliver of chocolate birthday cake. Germans do bread very well… but I’m not fond of their cakes. A bit to dry for my taste. With that being said, I still ate about half of this.
Before I knew it, it was already lunch. My salad yesterday was so delicious, I thought it deserved an encore.
During class fruit snack, I ate a clementine and a few green grapes- all of which went un-photographed. After school, I tutored then drug my tired behind back home. I am always so tired by the time Friday rolls around. Throughout the day, my energy level remains high… but once that final bell goes and the kids all go home, I take a deep breath and realize just how tired I really am.
This morning I read Angharad’s post about her mouth-watering Chana Masala and knew that I needed it in my life. Since I had some extra tofu and red peppers to use up, they also went in. Holy Yum! This recipe was so fast and delicious! I will certainly make it again! I served the dish with homemade garlic wheat naan and quinoa.
Want to know my secret ingredient? A long blond hair, apparently! Gross! I’m glad it went in my bowl and not Sebastian’s!
Once I was done eating, my mind was already onto dessert. Hmm… I have bananas I can freeze for some ‘ice cream.’ No, I’m too impatient for that. Just then, Sebastian said he wished we had ice cream. (Weird since we never buy the stuff.) The grocery store was already closed so we did the unthinkable. We ordered ice cream from the local pizza delivery service. Who would have thunk it?
The sexy little pizza delivery girl cartoon is asking, “Heiss auf eis, baby?” = “Hot for ice cream, baby?”
Yes, I was hot for ice cream, thank you for asking, and thank you for sending your little friend with the buckets of over-sugared chemicals and cream.
We ordered macadamia nut crunch and cookie caramel brownie.
Although next time I’ll stick to my naturally sweet banana ice cream, this cured my sweet tooth. We all know I’ve had trouble in the dental department lately.
With that, have a naturally sweet evening !
I hope you are all up to wonderful and fulfilling things this weekend!
