I Miss My Sister!June 9, 2009 at 1:56 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 6 Comments
I miss Mere already! Come back!!
I really hope that she gets to do her dietetics internship here in Raleigh. That would be a dream come TRUE!!
We had such a fantastic time yesterday! We had a great lunch at a hole in the wall Mediterranean place that I LOVE! I got a falafel wrap that had these awesome chili spread on it. I seriously need to get better with taking pictures. I just don’t think of it! Commitment, Hilary! Work in progress 🙂
Then we walked to Harris Teeter to get ingredients for……
Mere and I have been talking about making vegan cupcakes FOREVER with her copy of Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World (seriously love this title).
We decided on the cookies and cream. Yea baby. And we got mint oreos (did you know oreos are vegan!? nutso.) to crumble in the cupcake batter AND the frosting. Delicious. The frosting really tastes like cookies and cream ice cream!!
FROSTING! This stuff is AMAZINGGG!! I mean it IS sugar and “butter”…
Whoever thinks that because something is vegan automatically makes it healthy is sooo wrong….the amount of Earth Balance we used..I don’t even want to talk about it. Good thing Mere was in charge of the frosting while I cleaned up…because the tub of Earth Balance felt very light when I put it back in the fridge!
Out of the oven:
All dolled up:
And boy are these GOOD! Seriously I think it was the best cupcake I’ve ever had. I just had one 🙂 I meant to only have part of one..but I just couldn’t. It didn’t seem right to leave half of this delicious cupcake just sitting all alone. I wanted to unite the halves in my tummy. I’m all for keeping things together 🙂
Dan and Mere left this morning before I left for my first day at work. They had a long 8 hour drive ahead of them!! It was SO nice to have them here and I’m so glad to know I will be seeing them again in August.
This morning, I took a smoothie to go. I had made some overnight oats but I was so nervous my stomach was saying no no no to solid food.
Half a banana, lots of frozen berries, 2/3 c. water, lots of kale. Tasty in my belly. Gave me some liquid confidence! bahaha
Work was good! Everyone was so nice and this company is freaking TOP NOTCH! They have a fully loaded cafeteria, coffee + smoothie bar PLUS a gym that has classes!! Including yoga! WOOO! This is extra awesome since the only exercise I’m allowed to do right now is the bike and I don’t have a gym membership which means all the exercise I’m allowed to do right now..is nothing. But not anymore! Stationary bike here I come! I’m not going to overdo it though..Just a couple times a week.
Din was a yummy random bowl. I didn’t end up eating the salad I brought at work (just ate the other stuff I brought – leftover piece o pizza, bag of almonds, green apple, granola bar) so I used the salad as a base and put some lentils and brown top.
Plus a scoop of hummus and some homemade salsa
Simple and satisfying. Love meals like that.
Well I’m exhausted. I didn’t sleep that well last night because I was nervous to start my job today. I get such butterflies in my stomach when I’m nervous! Time to unwind and hit the sack. See you guys tomorrow 🙂
What’s your latest baking success??
