I'm going to share some pics of stuff I have had/made in the past week or so and then I'm going to do a journal for the day. Get excited!
This was Daddy Pea's Jambalaya. I haven't posted the recipe yet, but I will later...at some point..It was very delicioso!
YES. I finally made some awesome Gucamole! So good! I think I am going to make some more this week and experiment with adding mango...mmm...mango...
|Oh Hai. Just Chillin.|
Moving on to today's journal. I taught the 6AM cycle class this morning. While I love teaching, I will just never get used to early morning classes. Of course, the fact that this is the only day I get up this early probably doesn't help. It typically goes like this: I stay up until about 2AM and finally force myself to try to sleep. After tossing and turning I eventually drift off. Only to be woken up at 5:30AM and leave by 5:50AM (I like to live on the edge...okay, it doesn't technically start until 6:10AM, but same difference). I then begin the class and about 5 minutes in I feel GOOD. Running on pure adrenaline. Then, by the time I get home, I'm ready to pass out. So, after a quick shower, I climb in the bed with the DH (who works night shift, boooo) and I sleep for 3-4 hours. Hey, whatever works.
Today I had a tutoring appointment for biochem at 2PM. If you never have to take biochem, consider yourself lucky. Now, I am sitting here waiting on our 'breakout' session to begin. What's breakout you ask? Who knows. Just another hour of your life they want to rob from you.

Despite having gone to the grocery store THREE times this week, I still couldn't figure out what I wanted. I wanted something fast, easy and meat-free. So back to the black bean burgers it was.
