This post is running a little late because I am too – I have the day off! Working last Sunday earned me a long weekend today. It’s actually an extra-long weekend because I’m off Monday as well, I’m going to Ohio tomorrow to visit my grandma. Today, I’m going to have some fun with Adam and Webster.
Highlights from this week…
I didn’t snap any iced coffee photos this week, but I promise it was consumed in substantial quantities. There’s a chance I stayed up far too late watching Road Rules on YouTube one night. <– not worth the exhaustion, that show spent way more time on relationship drama than I had remembered.
Apple oatmeal, with an Asian pear.
My Filipino coworker brought me in some palm seeds and I bought them to good use. Chia pudding with palm seeds and banana.
Yogurt with palm seeds, Luxardo cherries, Cherrios, and an orange.
Another treat from the Philippines, polvoron, or powdered milk candy. They were fantastic, crumbly and milky in such a pleasing way.
More candy, Justin’s peanut butter cups (I’m still obsessed with these) and a milk popping candy. Sparkling water and diet coke are two of my favorite things and when you drink them together – as in at the same time, not in the same cup – they both taste even better.
Other snacks included apples we picked ourselves.
And the best microwave popcorn we’ve ever popped. This tasted almost as good as stove-popped.
We kept dinners super simple this week. Leftover smoked trout casserole, eaten cold out of the pan.
Salmon salad sandwiches – canned salmon with mayo, mustard, and pickle relish – on toasted TJ’s quinoa bread.
My most complicated night involved potato vareniki which cook in about 5 minutes. Tossed with shredded rotisserie chicken / sautéed celery / garlic kale / and a sauce made of cream cheese and chicken stock.
I’m off to go start my day off!
