hey everybody! guess what, today is a snow day! i woke up to this view out my window.
honestly, it’s not so bad. but the buses aren’t running, so neither is my car! (unless i want to go to the gym later.) 😉
i have big plans for this snow day! first, i’m going to get some work done on the paper that i’m writing – i’m thinking a half day of work is appropriate given the snow day! then it will be a good mix of reading, drinking tea, making the new version of jenn’s diy scarf, perhaps some knitting, trying a new soup recipe, and who knows what else! 🙂 i love all the possibilities.
now on to the good stuff! today i’m linking up to jenn’s “what i ate wednesday” again.
breakfast was enjoyed at my desk.
i had overnight oats topped with blueberries & shredded coconut. i also had some tea, water, and my vitamins. do you notice anything missing??? COFFEE! i didn’t have any coffee at all yesterday. go me! i’m trying to decrease my consumption – i hate that i feel like i need it every morning.
moving on to lunch:
i had a chobani
and some veggies (carrots, celery, mushrooms, green peppers) and hummus. i ate during our lunchtime seminar again – those veggies were LOUD. i ended up saving them to finish after seminar.
mid-afternoon i had some more tea! this one was a detox tea and a lemon tea mixed together.
and finally, dinner!
i bought a plain cheese pizza from the market next to my apartment building.
i chopped up some veggies to spruce it up a little (and some extra cheese, of course)!
all ready to go in the oven!
mmm, look at that melty goodness!
i served up two slices and went back for one more (unphotographed) slice!
after dinner i was reading blogs and i saw that heather posted a recipe for ginger maple muffins and i remembered that i had a ginger nubbin’ (that’s what heather called it and i loved it!) in my fridge, so i whipped them up.
i followed the recipe pretty closely, except i didn’t have whole wheat flour, so i used all-purpose and i didn’t have pure maple syrup so i used an agave and maple syrup blend from trader joe’s. it worked perfectly!
aren’t they cute and fluffy!
i let them cool for a couple minutes and then i dug in! they’re not the sweetest muffins, but the ginger gives it some great spice.
i put a little (homemade) jam on the second half to change it up. these are great for a snack! i might figure out the nutrition facts today, so if i do i’ll update this post!
it was a great day of food! 🙂
