Hi Guys –
Well, the haircut is a success, at least so far… My hair always looks great when I leave the salon because my stylist Erin is awesome! She took a few minutes before getting started this afternoon to look through some pictures with me and discuss what the plan was. I’m glad that we took the time to talk it over – and I really like my short new cut! I just hope I can make it look as good when I’m doing it all myself… 🙂
Here is the new style, after I got home from the hair cut, the fundraiser and a visit to my friend Jenn post-Fenway Fundraiser:
I am not photogenic, and I hate getting my picture taken – but I think the hair looks pretty good – and it did a great job of surviving the rain and horrible humidity!
Ok, now that I’ve showed you the new hair style, I will get back to a brief re-cap of the food now that the computer is set up!
Where to start!? On Monday and Tuesday I had great turkey and lettuce wraps, as I reported yesterday – here is a shot of them:
Yes – that is a dark chocolate Adora disk behind the sando – gotta get that calcium! I love Adora chocolates, perfect addition for lunch!
Tuesday morning I was hungry at 11 o’clock so I enjoyed a Luna cookie which was supposed to be my afternoon snack! These cookies are full of whole grains, 95% organic, packed with vitamins and minerals and most importantly they taste great!
Last night I finally got around to making this pizza that I had in my head for a long time. I had three great peppers: orange, yellow and red. I cut them up, sprayed with olive oil, sprinkled lemon and pepper and a pinch of sea salt and roasted the peppers for half an hour in the oven at 400 degrees. I flipped sides half way through. In the last ten minutes that the peppers were roasting, I started forming the pizza dough. I added TJ’s pizza sauce and their new light mozzarella cheese. Once the peppers were done roasting, I cut them into a little smaller and put them right on top of the pizza, which then went into the oven for about 12 minutes. The end result:
It was wonderful! I think roasting the peppers before cooking the pizza makes a huge difference. I highly recommend giving this a try soon, if you like peppers (sorry Nicole!!) and pizza! 🙂
Some how, in between setting up the new computer and getting things done around the house last night, I was able to think far enough ahead to make some over night oats before bed last night! I used 1/3 cup portions this time (1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup low fat yogurt and 1/3 cup light vanilla soy milk with a sprinkle of oat bran to add some more texture) I also added a good sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg.
But since I had to get to work early this morning and did not get up super early (obviously!) I had to throw the oats into a to-go container. I also took some raspberries (these are sooo good and beautiful!!!!) ground flax, dried goji berries, PB2 and cacao nibs. Wow – what a powerful combo this all turned into:
I love fresh berries:
This breakfast was fantastic.
But I was still excited for lunch because I had left over pizza slices!
Today we had a mini-intern celebration since it was the last day of the spring intern term for my department. I brought in “two bite treats” from Whole Foods… one container was the traditional brownies and one was full of blondies which I preferred. They were both good desserts!
After work was the haircut and then Ben and I headed over to the Bleacher Bar for Lauren’s fundraiser which was a lot of fun! I had a slider hamburger, a Sam Summer beer, and a few french fries. The Bleacher Bar was a lot of fun, I must say. What a great view of the field @ Fenway Park! If you can’t get tickets to a Red Sox game, you might want to try to get to the Bleacher Bar during a game to check out this scene!
Ok, well I am exhausted – but I’m going to head for bed and do some reading for a while. I am totally enjoying Julie and Julia. If you love cooking, or reading about cooking and food (which you might, since you are reading this right now!) I highly recommend this book! I am finding it so much fun to read… I know a book is great when I can actually stay awake after 10:30 in the evening reading it! 🙂
Have a great Thursday everyone! I will be back tomorrow for a normal re-cap of my day. See you then!
PS: Let’s all keep our fingers crossed for some SUNSHINE tomorrow!!! 😀
