If it’s true that you are what you eat, by the time I wake up tomorrow, I expect to be a heap of goat’s cheese.
Hopefully the balance from my other eats will save me from this cheesy destiny.
1/4 cup oats, milk, coffee
1 T. ground flax
1/2 tsp. hazelnut flavored coffee syrup
cinnamon, coconut flakes, flax, and hemp
home made almond butter
Leftover mushroom ravioli topped with steamed broccoli and tomato basil sauce
Lunch was another lunch date with my students. Today I was finally told that I do sometimes eat “normal” food.
I had an apple after school while marking work then headed home to tackle the huge pile of dishes I’ve allowed to accumulate over the last 2 days. Yuck! I’ve just felt so blah lately that my Suzy homemaker ambitions have slacked off.
After 2 days of super gluing, I think I’ve fixed the shelf that broke in my refrigerator earlier this week. While placing my condiments back in their place (in a much more weight balanced way,) I decided to eliminate one more jar by scooping out the delicious feta and herb bits in the bottom of my empty Patros jar.
Yes, I save empty jars to eat the herby bits at the bottom.
Later, I met up with some friends for a bit of pool at the Irish pub and then dinner at a new Turkish restaurant in town.
It was another beautiful day here in Germany, this is the view from my apartment building. I can see 2 different castles from my home. It gives me goosebumps of excitement almost every morning. Pinch me, is this really my home?
Zoe and Will strategizing their next moves.
The best part of the meal- hot sesame seed rolls with garlic herb butter.
Appetizer of herbed goat’s cheese cooked two ways. Good but a bit too salty.
Turkish take on eggplant parmesan. Eggplant and, you guessed it, goat cheese baked in a tomato cream sauce.
Dinner was great, as was the company. We laughed so much the chef came out to meet us. I think he was just curious as to who was enjoying his restaurant so much. Either that, or as Zoe suggested, he thought I was a food critic what with the picture-taking and all. (I’ve not told any of them about the blog… so I’m just strangely artistic to them.) I would definitely go back again. Next time, I think I’ll order a small salad, eat loads of the bread rolls, and then try the desert! Can we say baklava?
Thank you to everyone for your supportive comments yesterday. Your kind words of encouragement and prayers mean a lot to me. Today I woke up in a lot of pain but have been taking the muscle relaxant pills and ibuprofen which have helped. Hopefully a good night’s sleep will continue the healing process.
