Goodmorning Morning blog-reading folks, I had a total intention of getting to work this morning and bringing you a new recipe but I kind of failed. Last night I went out to Mezza, a traditional Lebanese restaurant, met some new friends had some great food and tried a Lebanese wine for the first time called Ksara. The NSLC details are here. We all had a great time and since it was a nice evening we walked home and even ran into my co-worker with her adorable puppy.
Once home around 10:30pm I realized my usually quiet neighbours, were having a backyard party. I don’t blame them it was a gorgeous night, so I got some water, talked to my boyfriend then headed to bed.
What I have learned early this Saturday morning:
My neighbors can be total jerks who sing, outside, in unison, until the cops are called to stop them at 530am.
Being truely tired makes it impossible to do things right the first time and sometimes the second.
When it’s rainy and you are over tired from your neighbs shenans, don’t go on pinterest while still in bed, you won’t have an excuse to get up and start your day until much later than you anticipated. Second thoughts on this, if you can stay in bed pinterest has some really great recipes and DYI instructions you should check out and because of this, I really want to make fresh pasta, especially this one from The Italian Dish.
Do NOT leave an open bag of chocolate chips in your freezer for a multitude of reasons.
Reason one, you are probably going to eat them before you ‘use’ them.
Reason two, you will inevitably open the freezer to get fruit for your smoothie and they will fall on the floor causing the morning panic of fending off two dogs from getting sick. Reason three, you may possibly enact the 5 second rule for emergencies, but then realize, eww no, not in my house, dog hair.
Green smoothies fix a lot of my problems, mine has:
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 3 organic kale leaves washed trimmed and torn into bit sized pieces
- 2 tbs hemp protein powder
- 1/2 tbs of flax seed
- 1/4 avocado
- 1/4 cup of vanilla almond milk
- 3/4 cup of orange juice
Cooking bulgur in the morning makes the house smell homey and makes me feel blog focused and a little productive.
