I made a little personal project for myself last week. Matilda and I go for walks around the city, and I always find myself looking down at her and smiling to myself. I wonder… what’s it like for her? Walking through grass must be like walking through a cornfield for us!
Click the link below to see the little video I put together.
FOOD PORN ALERT! This creamy bowl of muesli had it’s fair share of cinnamon, peach slices, coconut shreds, and almonds. Can we all say yum? Now all together… YUM!
So I bit the top off before I took a picture. I just poured some OJ into my ice pop molds. The next time I made these, I added some soy creamer to make them kind of like a Creamsicle. Which reminds me… Stoli Vanilla + Orange soda = THE BOMB!
Highlights of my week so far
I was looking through Craigslist the other day and read these words, “ANTHROPOLOGIE INTERNSHIP.” Click! Oh my gosh, guys… it’s screenshot time!
This is exactly what I was planning to have as a “practical job” when I graduate, but in New York!!! Speaking of “displays”, my room is coming together. I still have some things to hang up and crafting projects I’ve been meaning to finish.
All she does is growl at everything and everyone that passes by.
I don’t think you can see this – unless you have super sonic vision – but on the little chalkboard by the crazy mask I wrote “boys suck.” Well, they don’t really. I just think I must’ve been on another planet when girls learned how to flirt and stuff. Or maybe it’s just the fact that we’re from different planets anyway!
When I was grocery shopping the other day I saw that winter squashes were on sale for 69 cents a lb. What’d my eyes fall upon? The elusive kabocha and I met again! I’m thinking I should go back and get another one, and some other delicious winter squashes. Hello? Last time I paid $1.50 per lb. for the Japanese squash! I’d be crazy not to take advantage of this super deal.
So I went on a food adventure and tried lotus seeds for the first time! I made a lotus seed congee, and I changed it around everytime I ate my leftovers.
More Thai inspired veggies!
Speaking of avocados, an old friend of mine said I have really nice, full hair and that it must be because I eat avocados and olive oil. It’s also all thanks to nuts, and coconut oil (eat and put on my hair). Then the other day he said my hair is like Fara Fawcett’s hahah! Lately, it’s been flipping out by itself. Then he said “girls would kill to have that.” Oh, please feed me more compliments hot friend!
So this “old friend” of mine is also an old crush of mine. When I was at his house the other night, he pulled out a jar of Sunflower Seed Butter from Trader Joe’s. Oh my goodness! I think my eyes popped out of my head because he asked, “what?!” The flavor was overwhelmingly good and totally unexpected. I urge you all to try this if you haven’t already. I know at least one thing that’s going in my cart next time I go to Trader Joe’s. Oh and we went on a nice bike ride together! This is where we met up:
Then we just rode around the Victorian neighborhood called “the Fan”. I’ll take a picture of that for you guys. It’s so nice! Then we went back and watched this musical called “Shock Treatment”. It’s by the same guy who did “Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Well, basically we got all cuddly during the movie and he had so many nice things to say about me. Garsh!
I thought I was over my friend… and I was. But I’ve started crushing again. Not sure if he’s good news though. He’s got this je ne sais quoi, and all the girls fall for it. Even girls that usually don’t go for his “type”.
I spread some mayo + tarragon on the bun. I love the subtle sweet flavor tarragon has.
I threw in some raisins for some added sweetness.
I love it! I use to go to this bakery after school back in highschool, and I would have them build me a sandwich. They also make awesome cookies, and other breads. I can imagine this “tuna” recipe would taste awesome on their Honey Wheat loaf + sprouts!
There’s a grocery store that has bananas on sale for 29 cents a lb. on Tuesdays. Lots of bananas = banana pops! I am now addicted to making my own popsicles. Anybody have any recipes they’d like to share? Or ideas?
I’ve also seen that some of you guys add coconut milk to your oats. Well, I had an opened can sitting in my fridge… I think you guys can guess what I did next!
This looks so creamy and delicious! I can imagine some graphic designer going crazy over how “simple” it looks ahaha.
Lastly, my most exciting highlight of this week so far!
I’ve been trying out some U.S. Mills products:
By the way, this brought me back to Cocoa Krispies and loving how the milk would turn into chocolate milk!
