AKA: What I Ate Wednesday! Thanks to Jenn for hosting.
So, I feel like a lot of my meals yesterday fit in quite well with Laura’s #StrangeButGood campaign. Weird, yes. But delicious.
This has become my newest breakfast addiction. As in, eating 5-6 days a week right now.
Oats made in the microwave with half water, half almond milk and cinnamon/vanilla stevia mixed in. Topped with strawberry jam, nut butter (I went with Justin’s Vanilla Almond this time….and killed the jar. Sadness) and 1 sunny side up egg + splash of egg whites. Seriously, in love right now.
Followed by the advent calander chocolate, of course. Although, could someone please explain to me what a mushroom has to do with Christmas? (added: oh wait, I think it’s supposed to be a bell…nevermind).
After breakfast, I had a bit of shopping to do. Not Christmas shopping, mind you – I managed to get that done last week. That’s a bit of a Christmas miracle right there, I’m usually shopping up until a few days before.
Nope, I needed a new phone.
My mom, my brother and I had been on a family plan with another company for years…since I was in high school. Well, contracts kind of suck. So we all decided to get new phones/plans.
I finally own a smartphone! Seriously, I’ve been behind on this trend for a long, long time. Anyone else have an HTC One V? So far, I’m really liking it.
One of the first things I did?
Joined Instagram, clearly.
Follow me @betterwithsprinklesblog !
I’m still figuring out the fine points, but I can tell I’m going to get addicted to this thing fast. Time sucker, yes?
Highlight of the trip to the mall:
Eric modelling what may be the worst hat I’ve ever seen.
Seriously, reminds me of this:
Whoever buys that hat does not need to worry about aliens, apparently.
(Side note: Abigail Breslin is a freakin’ doll in this movie. Then she grew up. Between her and Dakota Fanning, I just feel old).
For lunch yesterday, I decided to break out the tempeh I bought last weekend.
I made an open faced tempeh sandwich with spinach, a bit of mayo, honey mustard and pickles. On the side I had steamed broccoli, carrots and the rest of the tempeh.
It was ok – I don’t think I’ll be in a huge hurry to buy it again though.
So…my camera ate my afternoon snack picture. So this is what you get:
Yes, that is some elite Paint skills right there.
The afternoon/evening was spent playing around with the phone, catching up on TV, and wrapping Christmas presents. Seriously, loving vacation.
For my before bed snack, I couldn’t decide whether I wanted yogurt or ice cream. So, I went with the only logical option:
Chocolate casein yogurt with an ice cream topping. Yea…I’m an interesting one.
Jenny’s Christmas Challenge:
Oh, stockings. Seriously, one of my favourite things about Christmas. In our stockings, there’s usually some combination of the following:
- chocolate (usually Reese’s, because everyone in my family is a huge peanut butter and chocolate fan)
- socks and/or underwear
- deodorant/hygiene stuff
- other odds and ends (nail polish for me, chips/pringles, energy drinks for my brother, pens)…really, whatever my mom can shove in there!
Have a great day!
