Good Food

I’ve finally had a full day of good food worth blogging about. Things here have been pretty calm, I’ve been doing a whole bunch of nothing and I’m trying to enjoy the relaxation and quiet rather than be bored with it. This is probably the last time in my life where I will have 2 months to focus on absolutely nothing but me so I need to take advantage of it while I can. As a result, I’ve been filling my days with running, reading, and relaxing. I’m getting the hang of it!

Breakfast

I slept like a log last night, I was exhausted for some reason! When I finally woke up around 8 (yes, that is considered sleeping in for me!) I made a quick bowl of cereal and then got back into bed to read for a few hours. It felt so lazy and luxurious, mmmmm.

Lunch

After I was done being a bum I ran some errands and made myself my very favorite lunch. Oh how I have missed my omelettes! Today’s was filled with red pepper and laughing cow. It was so perfect. I also had the traditional english muffin and pear to round out the meal.

Then me and my dad went to the car dealership to fill out the paperwork for my mom’s new car! I’m basically in love with this car, it’s amazing. I really don’t know anything about cars but this one is sleek and drives really smoothly so I like it. It’s an Acura but don’t ask me anything else about it because I have no idea! It’s silver. There, that’s about all I can tell you.

Snack

Cottage cheese, carrots, and cherries. I am seriously anxiously awaiting the return of my beloved rainer cherries which are basically my favorite food on earth. When I spot them at the grocery store you better believe I’m going to start jumping up and down screaming and make a scene because I’m just that excited. Hopefully I’ll be alone because whoever I’m with will absolutely pretend they don’t know me.

Dinner

I made the quickest, easiest, most delicious dinners tonight. Caramelized Scallops with brown rice and snap peas. So good! Definitely 5 stars. My dad told me it was one of his favorite meals that I’ve ever made. He doesn’t have incredibly high standards when it comes to food (ie-is just as happy eating a twinkie as he is a gourmet dessert…) but who doesn’t like a compliment? I have to admit, it was pretty delicious and there was no chopping involved which meant minimal clean-up which is always a plus in my book.

Dessert

And while I’m going on a cruise in a week and should probably be cutting back on the desserts in preparation for the smorgasbord of food, endless buffets, midnight dessert bars, and tropical drinks, I just couldn’t turn down a vanilla Dairy Queen with rainbow sprinkles. This is my favorite summertime (or anytime, really) treat, and I miss it so much when I’m at school. Ahhh, the simple pleasures in life.

Ok, I’d say it’s time to veg out on the couch with a movie, a cup of tea, and my slanket. Yes, I have a slanket. My friend bought it for me as a graduation present and it is actually the best gift I think I’ve ever gotten. It’s quite possible that I’m going to crank up the A/C way higher than my family would ever accept just so that I can cozy up in this all summer. Love.

    I haven’t had scallops in forever and I need to get some soon.

    I’m glad you’re relaxing and enjoying yourself!

    I hope a slanket is like a snuggie, but less cult like. I know you could rock it.

    Glad to see you’ve replaced the three R’s! Your day sounds so lovely… especially the last third. Scallops are one of my favorite things to eat, and DQ? Hello! Yes, definitely one of life’s finer pleasures. There was one on the corner of my block in St. Paul and I definitely pleased myself quite a bit!

    And I love you for having a Slanket. The infomercials are so funny!

    8 is sleeping in for me too! Nice omelet! I wish I had those skillz – what’s your secret?! That DQ ice cream looks soooo creamy and delicious 🙂

    Oh, I’ve got a snuggie and it’s one of the best inventions ever!
