Great Eats, Great Memories

Posted on: December 28, 2008

In celebration of our almost-summer weather (yeah, right… I’m just excited that the snow melted!) I threw together a cereal bowl this morning for breakfast. Just some Total cereal, two small sliced bananas, and soymilk.


When lunch time rolled around I had my classic lunch: peanut butter and raspberry jam on whole wheat, with an apple on the side. This bread is very tough to chew, I prefer soft bread. But it was ok; peanut butter makes everything better! And the cold, crispy, sweet apple was heavenly.


AND I also made a “hot raw cocoa” that
invented! I blended up water, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp of peanut butter, and a little bit of honey (I’m out of agave nectar), then heated it in a saucepan until it was warm and frothy! It was so good! It was really rich and the peanut butter gave it a yummmy nuttiness. I’ll be making this again.


For a snack this evening I had a couple handfulls of garlic-roasted hazlenuts. They were eh. I think nuts should be paired with sweet, not savory, but whatevs. I was hungry so I ate ’em. 😛

Dinner time! Some serious yum eats here! Usually I don’t make elaborate dinners, but tonight I was feeling chef-like, so I made a mushroom/spinach omelet, rice (salt, cayenne, curry powder, sugar [less than 1/4 tsp]), and roasted carrots. Omnomnom!



Right now I’m sipping a tall glass of milk and I’ll probably have something for dessert later.

In other news…
I went to a concert in Portland 3 weeks ago to see Tokio Hotel (ROLL CALL: who loves Tokio Hotel?). Jingle Ball 2008- featuring The Veer Union, Jesse McCartney, and Tokio Hotel. It was the best day of my whole life! It was a very small concert, less than 300 people, and most of us were crowded in the front row, or so it seemed, haha. My sister and I were in the front row until people started getting too crazy (and it got crazy- one girl actually broke her leg!) so we moved toward the back. In this video, Bill is waving to my sister and me at 0:37 seconds. He’s waving because we were the only people in the back who were screaming and waving at him. Check it out!

(Forgot to add: This video wasn’t taken by me, but my sister and I were standing near the person who filmed it, so it works, haha!)
