This weekend has been exactly what I hoped. Lazy. Relaxing. Unproductive.
I normally can’t stand to sit still. I need to be constantly doing something. So it was nice to just sit back and relax with friends.
A few nights of going out, house parties, you know, the usual.
I’ve been eating ugly but delicious meals, like this:
I was in the mood for a Mexican Mess but didn’t have all the standard ingredients, so I whipped this up instead. It’s not even really a recipe, but in case you’re curious, it was:
- 1/2 zucchini
- 1/2 yellow squash
- 1/2 cup salsa (I used a really spicy kind)
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1/2 onion
- spices to taste (chili powder, crushed red pepper, garlic and salt)
I just sautéed it all in some olive oil until the veggies were nice and soft. I love dishes like this because you can basically substitute anything you want and it’ll still come out delicious.
I’ve also been eating almond butter like it’s my job.
(If a job like that exists, please consider this my application.) Thanks to the almond butter + sweet potato combo that I can’t stop eating, I’ve gone through so much almond butter, that this jar was just asking to be made into a smoothie bowl. Who was I to deny the almond butter?
This was your standard: almond milk + banana + stevia + xanthan gum + ice combination, poured into a little almond butter jar for maximum deliciousness.
Other random weekend highlight: trading in my semi-broken Droid for an iphone
After the amazing transition from PC to Mac, I was really excited to finally switch to an iphone. I’m kind of obsessed. I think my favorite part is Instagram. (I know, I know, of all the awesome features, am I really saying this is my favorite part?) Let me have my fun, alright?
Random picture I took while we were driving downtown:
Cool, right? Maybe I’ll do a whole What I Ate Wednesday- Instagram Edition.
And now, I’m off to go enjoy the last bit of the weekend!
