Gray day

12 06 2008

I lied. The weather was crappy again today.. I’m starting to forget what it looks like with LIGHT outside! At least it’s supposed to be sunny with 0% chance of precipitation this weekend!! I’m addicted to weather.ca if you haven’t noticed 😛

I haven’t had a Straw-nana smoothie in a while.. so brought it in my cereal bowl 🙂 Kashi Go Lean Crunch, Fiber One, Nature’s Path FlaxPlus Multigrain with a sliced strawberry, half a banana and a couple raisins thrown in. I loved this combo! Well then, guess what’s for breakfast tomorrow..

Tried out some of the Stash Goji Berry Green Tea we picked up the other day. Really fruity with a twist to it, I’m going to try it iced tomorrow with some honey to sweeten it up a bit more!

Gym workout again today. That reminds me that I’m going to have to find a new gym when I move to Houston.. Ahh it’s going to be hard for me to part with my rec center that I’ve grown to love 😦

There wasn’t much in the fridge to make lunch, so we went to our favorite Japanese restaraunt for my all-time favorite meal 🙂

Started off with some green tea, miso soup, and a salad with miso-ginger dressing. There’s something about house salads at Japanese places.. it’s so simple but ridiculously tasty!

I was going to try out a different roll, but the lunch special was 2 cali rolls with a soup & salad for only $5! Whatta deal. The California rolls are so well made here. The crab (even though it’s artificial) is always so fresh tasting, not too much mayo, they don’t overload the rice, and the rice is never “mushy”.. perfection!! The bf and I have been to countless Japanese places, so I can spot a nasty Cali roll from a block away 😉   

A peppermint to end my meal! Although I’m notorious for stealing a couple more mints from the bowl when the waitress turns away (yenno, just to keep in case of “emergencies”) The bf always shakes his head in embarrassment afterwards.. 😛

When we got home I finally got around to making those Cinnamon Raisin Bagels! It took a little longer this time around since I made 18 mini-bagels instead.

Here are my little babies all finished with cinnamon & ground flaxseed sprinkled on top.

They’re about the size of the palm of my hand, so it’s pretty much perfect with a smear of almond butter for a snack or pre-workout bite.

Bagels fresh out of the oven are seriously the most comforting ever! Had mine with a little almond butter as planned 🙂

And another iced coffee! Damnit I’m addicted! But caffeine doesn’t have any effect on me whatsoever. I remember in high school I’d drink mug after mug so I could stay up all night and cram.. but I’d be dead asleep five minutes later! Haha 😛

I didn’t have a huge appetite for dinner since that bagel held me over for a quite awhile. So I just shared a plate of Shrimp & Zucchini Stir-Fry with the bf, but didn’t have any of the rice.

The bf’s mom came home with a huuuuuge box of mangoes!!! 😀 I was extremely ecstatic about this.. (my tropical fruit addiction!!)

 

2 weeks til my vacay and 2 days til the weekend! We can make it!! 😀
