Let the good times roll on a 3-day weekend…can I get a woowoo? WOOWOO!
My food stash is getting a bit paltry, but I managed to drum up enough ingredients to make killer PB+S (peanut butter and strawberry, obv) toast this morning, aka one of Papa GC’s favorites :).
I didn’t think this smashing combo of perfectly sweet + salty would hold me over for very long, but I was totally wrong. My tummy didn’t start hankering for a snack until 11am, in which I brought out the big guns: Wisconsin Cheddar!
In anticipation for the weekend, I have literally been singing, “Let Freedom Ring” in my head all morning. My legs are also doing that antsy, annoying, can’t-stop-moving thing, and I have been skipping and sprinting around the office today. After sitting at a desk all week, pent-up energy much? Either that or ADD…hmmmmm….
At nooner, I couldn’t wait to dig in to my leftovers from last night’s Thai Tempeh Curry over brown rice. The leftovers were, no lie, twice as good as last night. I think the veggies + tempeh really had time to soak in the yellow curry simmer sauce, and everything had way mo’ flava yo. Gotta love a dish in which the leftovers are even better than the originals!
After lunch, I enjoyed a leisure cup of organic black tea (which I found in the office stash – score!) with a bit of skim milk and a hint of pure white sugar. It was delicious and brought me back to my study abroad days in London…
Using up the rest of my lunch hour, I bebopped over to the grocery store to pick up some baking ingredients. Yes kids, be prepared for some swoonworthy treats around these parts in the next couple of days. I have a brand new recipe, which I am pumped to show y’all as well as more VeggieGirl blondies (obv)!. Here are some of the goods I picked up: dark chocolate chips, tahini (sesame seed paste), raspberries, blueberries, organic evaporated cane juice, sunflower seeds, slivered almonds…
Prepare yourselves, because I, Holly the Healthy Everythingtarian, may have made one of the most delicious combos to ever be featured on this blog. Bold statement? Yes. Completely true? You know it.
1 cup Stonyfield Organic Oikos Greek yogurt
1/2 cup halved strawberries
1 tbsp. flax
2 mini whole wheat cherry chocolate chip muffins, crumbled
I kid you not, I licked the container clean in the privacy of my own cubicle at work :).
Now, I am asserting the rights my forefathers so graciously gave me by running with my freedom out the door and out of work. Can I get another woowoo? WOOWOO!
My personal favorite part of 4th of July – Bomb Pops!
I’m not sure what my posting schedule will be like over the weekend,
but keep checkin’ in because I will be sharing all the celebratory goodness!
