The Little Things

October 1, 2010

This morning I ran from my apartment door to the work out room.  Without any toe pain 🙂  It’s the little things that make my day.  Weekend running, here I come.

The fact that it only takes 15 minutes to get a quick work out in makes me pretty happy too!

So does remembering to put a banana in the freezer when I get home from work.  At midnight…

Breakfast may be a little thing but when it’s this good it’s makes a huge difference in my mood.

Uhhh yeahhh, talk about breakfast perfection.  I made pumpkin oats per usual (lately anyways) then topped the bowl with banana-pumpkin soft serve, which I made by adding a spoonful of pumpkin to the processor after I’d whipped the frozen banana up.

Topped with peanut butter, jelly and cocoa nibs.

I promise there’s oats under there.

Told you.

If it’s Thursday it must be rush-around-the-kitchen-like-a-maniac-while-cooking-breakfast-and-dinner day.

Potato Burger anyone?

I have no idea what kind of potatoes these were but they were buttery and delicious.

I love being able to throw my potatoes in a pot of simmering water and forgetting about them for an hour!

Add white beans to potatoes.

I also added 2T lemon juice, salt, pepper, 1T nutritional yeast, 2 minced garlic cloves (which means my hands will smell like garlic for the next week, greattt). 

Mash mash mash

The next time you see this meal it will be in crappy 8 PM lighting 😦

But for now let’s dwell on how a small thing like leftovers can make my Thursday morning food load monumentally lighter.

This Oikos and pair of dates also tagged along for afternoon snack.  I have a hard time justifying Oikos purchases when it’s close to two dollars a container and Brown Cow is sitting right next to it on the shelf for 79 cents, but I needed me some good Greek this week.  Ahh, the joys of unintentional rhyming.

Like I said, crappy 8 PM lighting, yuck!

I bought sandwich thin type things and toasted them while the potato burgers were finishing up.  Oh and did I mention I added some chopped basil?  No?  Well I did, obviously.

Oh and a piece of pepperjack cheese.

And some good old BBQ sauce.  Which reminds me that I need to try out that “Bone Suckin’ Sauce” I’ve seen floating around the blogosphere.

Okay, okay let’s give credit where credit is due.  And credit for this dinner goes to Mama Pea.  Again.  Because I’m a lazy meal planner and end up with my weeks worth of recipes all from once source.  In the meantime I’m sure I come off as creepy.  Take it as a huge compliment if my entire blog looks a lot like your recipe page…

Order up!  Burger and “fries” 🙂

The broiler is my best friend.  Toss green beans in olive oil, salt and pepper and broil on high for ten minutes and your good to go!

The cheese and BBQ sauce made this burger.  Oh and the potatoes.  And the nutritional yeast tang.  And the toasty bun.  Okay, it was all damn good.  Little things sure do add up.

Oh yeah, one more small thing.  It’s FRIDAY!!!! Oh who am I kidding that’s a big thing 🙂
