Winding DownPosted: July 9, 2010
The best part of leftovers?
You can walk in the door, kick off your shoes, toss a container of vegan curry in the microwave, and be curled up in your bed with a hot meal and SATC reruns in three minutes flat.
Oh, the glamorous life of a single gal in a quiet little central Florida city.
Actually, I couldn’t be more thrilled to have a lazy evening in. It’s been AGES since I had nothing planned, and I am so ready to sleep off some stress!
My morning kicked off with a bowl of wheat bran blueberry ovaltine oats:
Blueberries were on MEGA sale – 4 containers for just $5!!! They’ve been in almost all of my breakfasts/snacks lately.
I’m fully aware that my cup bowl of coffee was bigger than my bowl of oatmeal. You gotta do what you gotta do to get through the day, no?
Especially when you know what the day has in store: Basketball, slip-n-sliding, and barbecuing hot dogs for a class full of hangry and hyper kidlets.
I swear, if you don’t feed them when they want to be fed, they will start eying you and the nearest bottle of mustard in a manner that makes you pray that there is no cutlery in arm’s reach.
Since I knew lunch was going to be chips and red meat, I brought an assortment of fresh fruit, a small faux-ham sandwich, and an ear of corn to grill.
Speaking of incredibly cheap summer produce – Publix had ears of corn 10 for $10! Booyah! Bummer that I only bought this one for today, but it came out so well that you better believe I’m going back for more!
I didn’t need salt, pepper, butter, nada. You’re perfect just the way you are.
A few more words before I turn my undivided attention to Carrie and Mr. Big:
- I’m toying with the idea of smaller two-a-day posts instead of one big one. As a reader, does two posts in one day seem like too much to keep up with? Would you stop by twice to blogs you know update more frequently? If you blog, have you tried/can you keep up with double-headers?
- Want a shot at 50 buckeraoos at a CSN store? Pop over to Julie Go Lean and enter her giveaway!
- Speaking of giveaways…you’ve got a day and a half left to enter my Soy Candles by Phebes drawing! I’m still in love with the candles they sent me to try – don’t miss your shot to try one for yourself 🙂
See you tomorrow!
