Good morning! Did you have a good weekend?
While mine wasn’t bad, I wouldn’t exactly call it exciting, either. Basically, it involved a lot of this:
Doesn’t look too exciting, does it? I have a meeting with my thesis supervisor at the end of the week, so I wanted to get as much work done as possible over the weekend so I could prepare for the meeting during the week. I actually managed to get everything done that I had planned (surprising, because I set the bar pretty high), but it meant that it was a low-key weekend for sure.
Although, I did manage to fit in some other things too!
- cleaned the apartment (including the bathroom…worst thing ever)
- developed a new recipe…
(to be revealed tomorrow!)
- I did my usual grocery shopping/meal planning
- I did some baking:
Jamie Eason’s pumpkin protein bars, made with pecans and french vanilla stevia. It tastes more like a less-sweet quick bread to me, but I’ll take it!
- I escaped the kitchen for a night:
(Subway will always be amazing)
And I finished season 2 of Downton Abbey.
Seriously, how am I just getting into this show? I’m usually not a huge fan of historical-type drama but I’m obsessed. And Maggie Smith – I can’t even. So funny! I’m still getting caught up, obviously, but I’m hooked right now.
So I guess I can’t complain too much, can I?
When I woke up yesterday, I was starving, so I immediately tossed back a few handfuls of cereal before putting breakfast together. An old favourite:
A sweet potato with almond butter, a bit of honey, and two runny eggs. I hadn’t had this one in a while – a few years ago, I never would have thought I’d be eating a potato for breakfast, but damn, those things are versatile.
Not a lot of highlights from yesterday – more DA, being impressed with myself for getting shit done, and heading to the gym for a quick interval session on the treadmill.
Fun fact of the day: Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter is not only delicious, it’s reinforced or something.
I accidently knocked the jar out of my top cabinet, where it dropped on the counter and rolled onto the floor. The lid cracked, but the jar itself – not even a scratch. Durable, apparently.
And dinner last night – yes, that was a highlight for sure.
Annie’s Mac and Cheese with cut up (all-pork) hotdogs and green beans. Of course, ketchup was immediately added post picture. This will forever be one of my favourite meals to make on a lazy weekend.
I hope your week gets off to a good start!
<— Tell me something fun/exciting about your weekend. Mine was pretty tame, so I need to live vicariously through you guys.
<— What tv shows are you obsessing over right now? I can add Girls to that list…Lena Dunham is so, so brilliant.
