Not in the cards
Remember this song? 'Cuz I sure do... I had so much energy today that I just had to dance around the apartment singing all my old favorites. Apparently I forgot to close the windows, however, because as soon as I unpacked my computer at Cahoots "Oops! I Did It Again" started blasting through the coffee shop. Whoopsies!
Anyway... here's a wonderfully awkward picture (and look at those eye baggies!) of me in the library with a dried mango slice:
I really wanted to cook... but I lacked time and energy so I heated up one of my frozen dinners. This was my first time having this Amy's meal:
I served it on a bed of lettuce. I know it doesn't look like the prettiest dinner...
It needed a little something extra, so I added a chopped tomato, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and chili flakes. Has anyone else ever noticed that no matter how much sodium (a lot!) there is in a frozen dinner, it's never quite salty enough?
It wasn't bad, and I'd probably buy it again. It did remind me how much I love real Mexican food; Kalle and I were just talking last week about how we need to go back to one of our old high school haunts, Mama Mexico. Another restaurant to add to the ever-growing list...
At Cahoots I got a 16 oz skim au lait with a shot of espresso and hazelnut syrup. Not as good as I thought it would be... I think I'll stick to the two drinks as separate entities. Max described it as "thick sludge." Yum.
I came home craving a sweet treat and had this Silver Moon chocolate chip monster cookie with a glass of milk. Heated up, it was gooey and delicious, and tasted fresh-from-the-oven good.
I didn't end up having time to make it to the gym tonight, but I'm hoping to get there in the morning to work off that bad boy and get a much-needed endorphin kick!
Have a great night!
Also, David Byrne & Brian Eno together might just be the best thing to ever happen.
