Adam is on spring break right now so I gave him my free ticket voucher and he spent a week in St. Thomas with my parents. They are all disgustingly in love with each other and had a fabulous time. Meanwhile I was home alone but at least I had the dog.
Furry cuddles totally got me through. And I definitely took advantage of meals as a single lady.
Fruit and yogurt bowl.
A strawberry Fage topped with fresh pineapple and cara cara orange.
A lackluster morning.
A bottle of iced coffee that I thought tasted artificial and threw out halfway through.
And a NuGo bar that was nowhere near as tasty as their salted pretzel variety.
Coffee greek yogurt with frozen blackberries, toasted coconut, and chocolate milk. <– Fantabulous
Smoothie 2 was frozen mango, blackberries, and spinach with coconut water.
Have you tried the ice cream coffees from Dunkin? This was butter pecan.
I tried the cookie dough last weekend too and it was legit amazing.
Arugula with carrots, pea shoots, honey roasted almonds, buckwheat groats, blue cheese, dried blueberries, and vinaigrette.
Plus a cara cara orange and tamarind balls from home.
My coworkers are mostly all from the Caribbean as well and they were thrilled that I shared my tamarind shipment.
Oatmeal and apples.
Cherry Pistachio from Quaker.
And Cherry Vanilla from Big Slice.
This was the first flavor of these kettle cooked apples that I didn’t like.
An everything bagel thin with strawberry jam, sharp cheddar, smoked turkey, and banana peppers.
Plus spicy peanut cucumber salad.
And raspberry candies and the last orange.
Paper bag popcorn.
Prune chocolates my Russian coworker shared.
I ate this entire bag of Inner Peas in one sitting.
It was pathetic but also delicious.
I topped with cool tub of fig yogurt with white chocolate chips and toasted coconut.
Cookie mugs rocked my face of this week.
I use this recipe, but swap the ratio of white to brown sugar.
I had a TJ’s pretzel bread in the car as an appetizer.
Then topped a giant bowl of arugula and pea shoots with medium-boiled eggs, blue cheese, turkey bacon, shredded carrot, yogurt blue cheese dressing, and truffle salt.
And now medium-boiled eggs are my new favorite thing.
A combination of nibbles. Pretzels straight from the bag.
A granny smith dipped in peanut butter and lavender caramel.
And baby carrots with red pepper hummus.
Eggs scrambled with okra, arugula, and swiss cheese.
This poblano and corn chowder was delicious.
And now we’re off to do fun spring break stuff!
