Did You Know…

December 17, 2010

Did you know I ate not one but two pieces of chocolate cake at work last night?  One of which was doused in espresso and was eaten at 1 AM.  Hey, whatever keeps me awake long enough to drive home, right?

Did you know I ate two pieces of chocolate cake and didn’t feel one morsel of guilt about doing so?  That’s right, bring on the cake!

Did you know I got home at 2:40 AM and still managed to throw some overnight oats in an almost empty peanut butter jar and stash it in the fridge for the next morning.  Who really knows (or remembers) what exactly went in there.

Did you know overnight oats kind of suck in comparison to hot?  Okay, that sounds harsh but these did not do the trick this morning.  I went the non-vegan route and added 1/3 cup vanilla bean greek yogurt and was unimpressed by the taste.

Did you know peanut butter, apples and bananas are a match made in heaven even if goopy oats are in the mix?  It’s true.  These toppings saved this jar.

Sidenote: Did you know Arrested Development is so underappreciated.  Good thing my boss loves the show as much as I do and let us watch it at work.  Do yourself a favor and rent seasons 1,2 and 3 and don’t leave your house/apartment/condo/cottage/shack until you’ve finished it. 

Did you know I love my body?  And it’s lovely way of telling me what it needs in terms of food. After 2 days of peanut butter balls and chocolate cake (refer to the beginning of this post) all my body wanted was salad.  Crisp, fresh, clean salad.

Did you know pickles are awesome in a slad?

Did you know I love tahini dressing so much I’ve started taking shots of it?

Okay, fine I just used a shot glass because all my bowls were too big for the amount of dressing.

Tahini Dressing:

  • tahini
  • lemon juice
  • mustard
  • apple cider vinegar
  • garlic
  • soy sauce
  • water

I have no idea how much of each I used.  I just poured it into the blender and crossed my fingers.


Along with some shells stuffed with spinach and ricotta and topped with marinara.  Thanks, Joey!

Did you know lunch tastes better when it comes right after a great nap?

Did you know right after taking this picture I dropped my second shell on my nice couch (compliments of my parents)?  Bummer.

Did you know I tried really hard to make dinner before the sun set.

I didn’t succeed but I got a few pictures before sunset at… 4:30!!  What the heck?

Did you know I NEVER get tired of this tofu recipe and did you also know that this was the first time I actually remembered to use the sesame seeds?

Did you know mashed sweet potatoes with coconut oil and almond milk are insanely delicious?

It’s so true.

I think I need seconds.

Then tea and a book in bed.

Friday already? Have a good one!

      I’m not going to lie I REALLY strugged to make it till 2 this week. If I had to do it even one more time I’d find someone else to take my shift.
