Friday and sprouts

Thank you Friday!  Slowly getting used to the time change in the mornings.  No gym today, so it was straight up for breakfast!

This was the 1-minute muffle topped with some ricotta cheese, a teaspoon of honey and cinnamon.

I liked this, actually, but I would warm the ricotta next time.

I was hoping to get out for a bike ride today, but it was drizzly and yucky. Booo.  And work seemed to go on forever today.  Don’t you hate days like that?

I was glad to take a break for my morning snack:

It was kind of sleepy day, too.  I tried to get a picture of Sleepy McGee, but then she woke up.

Look of death? I think so.

On the garden front (since it is Friday and all), I do have some seedlings to report!  The allysum and nicotania have sprouted.  Obviously need to thin these when I find out which ones are the strong ones.

See how the allysym are kind of smushed?  That’s because someone thinks the greenhouse is her personal bed.


Leftovers for lunch today. The rest of the chicken from last night.

I have decided I officially do not like long beans.  They squeak in my teeth when eating them, which really bugs me.  Plus I don’t like the taste.  No more of these for me!  On a good note, I am not growing a third eye or any other issues from the giant strawberries, so that is good news.

I was despairing that I would ever finish work today. I swear the clock was starting to tick backwards – I am such a baby!  My job actually requires a lot of concentration each day, so I am pretty ready for the end of the week.  I did get some pep with the latte, though.

I had 2 of those chocolate chewy things, FYI.  Very foamy latte today.  We switched back down to 1% milk from 2% and it makes a lot of foam!

Finally finished up with work.  It felt like 3 days worth.  I actually was done before dinner time and went out for a   little walk prior to dinner to clear my head.  Then I came back and had this:

I wish I could get the Laughing Cow to spread on top of the omelet better, but it still tastes the same.  🙂

Thank you for it finally being Friday night!  St. Patty’s Day tomorrow and John is going to make some Irish Soda Bread.  Not sure if we will go out or not.  It depends on if there actually is Irish music anywhere or just places with any music and booze…  🙄

We are settling in for the night with season 2 of Downton Abbey with my snack:

Pear and rehydrated peanut flour.  Lots of protein in that stuff.  A very good eating day as well.  I really have been doing well on the no nibbling front.  It has been about 3 weeks since my last snack bender, so I am pleased about that.

Hope you all have a good weekend!

    On the green beans, I hate that squeak too! But i love green beans. If you use fresh, and boil them for about 10 minutes, top with a little butter, they are divine and they lose the squeak. Also roasted I LOVE them. No squeak either. The frozen ones squeak no matter what you do to them.

    I’m so mad I went to Costco yesterday and forgot to get laughing cow AND goat cheese. Boo!

    Good thing Pixie forgave you…she didn’t look happy. 🙁

    My favourite way to eat green beans is raw…no squeak.

    Enjoy the weekend and I hope you get out for a ride!

    Oh Lori, I laughed out loud a Pixie claiming the greenhouse as her own special bed. That is HILARIOUS!!! She is delightfully hilarious. Hope you, she and John have a great weekend.

    Oh Pixie, what are you doing lying on top of Lori’s sprouts? You look adorable though.

    It’s still too early to grow anything except the only living thing I have in my apartment: a lonely bamboo shoot.

    I orderd some coconut and almond flour the other day, I’m gonna try some of your recipes soon! 🙂

    Congrats on the no-snacking accomplishments. When I look back on my MFP food diary, my snacks equal another meal!
