Is June seriously almost over?! I’m beyond excited to cross another month off my countdown! Though I’m not sure exactly when I’ll be getting my husband back, knowing I’m another month closer to surgically gluing myself to his hip is making me squeal like a little girl. While I do a celebratory dance around the house [in pants, I promise] scroll down to check out the foodie shenanigans, snack ideas, and a few other random musings.
WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY
[Faux French Toast drizzled with warm maple syrup –oh yes, it’s tofu! Freakishly good tofu!] [garden veggie burger salads with zucchini, sprouts, tomatoes, cucumber, and leafy greens] [veggie to-go wraps from the sushi counter – these make a DELICIOUS hand-held snack!] [chocolate chocolate chip cupcakes via revisions to this recipe that i’ll be posting about super soon] [veggie quinoa fried rice] Of course there were lots of extras sprinkled in between: a few cups of black coffee, enough water to float a boat, and a banana scarfed en route to the gym. The usual.
-What I’m Reading-
After tearing through Daughter of Smoke and Bone I went through a mini mope-fest. The sequel won’t be out for months and patience isn’t my favorite virtue. I decided to order a few books off my Goodreads “to read” list [Something Like Normal being one of them – SO excited to read this!] and re-read one of my recent favorites while I waited for them to arrive. If you’re in the market for a book that isn’t made up of rainbows, butterflies, and 50 shades of whatever the heck that book was about, then read The Opportunist. I’ve already tricked talked a few of my friends into reading it and they pretty much all had the same reaction. Sheer and utter OMG-I’m-never-putting-this-book-down addiction followed by an overwhelming urge to chuck your ipad/kindle into the nearest wall. That may not sound appealing but that’s my little way of saying I loved it. Seriously! I kind of dare you to read the sample chapters and not be intrigued.
and since we’re at it…
-What I’m listening to-
Part of the reason it takes me forever and a day to write a post is the fact that I’m usually flailing around to music. I have walked away from this particular post 3 times already in favor of singing into a nail polish bottle. A few of the tunes on loop include Metric’s “Youth Without Youth,” “Shuffle” by Bombay Bicycle Club, and Two Door Cinema Club’s “I Can Talk.” Feel free to leave me a comment with your recent favorites, I’m as much of a music junkie as I am a book whore. Er… bibliophile =)
I’m also currently in the midst of a roasted red pepper hummus and cucumber obsession. I probably eat half to a whole cucumber daily. It’s a little ridiculous, but then I remember it’s summertime and a bajillion degrees outside. Suddenly it makes *perfect* sense! If you have a Harris Teeter anywhere within a 50 mile radius of your home please get in your car and drive there. Now. You have to try their RRP Hummus. In-sane.
