Beyond sleepy… I kept waking up every ten minutes starting around 3.00 AM today, which was extremely annoying! I am hoping for an early night … and not to wake up until 5.00 AM once I fall asleep. My, I can certainly be demanding…
So. Today marked Day II of a pretty awesome salad that I could not enjoy fully, because I am a paranoid freak and I was so stressed out that Mr. J was going to come over and harass me about why I was eating on a fast day! Thankfully, he did not. Come over, I mean. Because if he had, you can bet your life he would have given me grief.
Romaine, fetus carrots, chopped Dr. Praeger’s meatless Southwest burger, roasted artichokes. Artichokes and I have a, shall we say, somewhat volatile relationship. My last effort at fresh artichokes nearly melted a bowl into the surface of my microwave. I decided I should just stay away from the fresh stuff and started looking for canned / jarred artichoke hearts, but the only kosher certified ones I can find are marinated, and I don’t want that. So I settled for frozen, which I roasted with garlic salt. It was a little … tough? The flavor was good, but I wouldn’t expect anything else from garlic salt!
Today’s muffin topper took this form:
Toasted and crumbled over vanilla yogurt, accompanied by half a sliced banana.
That apparently did not fill the chocolate quota for the day, because I made a very, very exciting discovery in Whole Foods this morning.
Come on, you can’t tell me this isn’t exciting!! 😉 Under normal circumstances, I would save a packet like this for when I go on vacation, but I just had to try it.
It tastes, like, well, hazelnuts. And chocolate. I liked it, which is odd, because I don’t really care for hazelnuts — they remind me of Pesach! And this was wonderfully creamy and “drippy.” I liked that. So the second packet can wait until August, when I go on vacation…
Because I am 99% sure I have settled on where I am going on my next dive trip! When I spend money, I spend money. 😉 (I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Yes, it’s an expensive hobby, but I do it in the most frugal way possible, believe me!)
It’s been a while — recycled picture.
In case you were wondering, wearing such earrings on a windy day is a bad idea. I already knew this. Not that the knowledge helped any. :p
Tomorrow poses a little challenge… since I apparently like guessing games, you can find the clue somewhere around here. 😉 Have a happy Hump Day!
