Happy Mothers' Day! I believe that's the correct punctuation, as I push my glasses up my nose.
I went to church, got annoying church songs stuck in my head for the rest of the day, came home and walked around the hood for about 15 minutes with my mom and that was the end of it. She's a wonderful lady but we're both pretty busy and I'm a terrible daughter. I love you mommy; I'll cook you something soon.
This was breakfast for G and I: (Well, he had his own - we didn't have to share)
Spinach, banana, frozen strawberries, 1/2 inch chunk of ginger, soy milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and maybe 1 tsp. raw honey.
Lunch was collard wraps:
Stuffed with Happy Herbivore's nacho cheese, avocado, hot sauce (the trifecta!), carrots, spinach, tomatoes, and yellow squash.
I also had more of the avocado, hot sauce, and nacho cheese with some chips to round out the experience.
Then I re-organized the pantry (though you can't really tell. I think I just shifted some dried peas to the left) and cleaned up the fridge. I don't like to waste food but I am happy to have tossed a few things that were probably inedible at this point. In an effort to use up a few odds and ends that were sitting in the fridge, I chopped up a withering beet with some of the summer squash, tossed it with olive oil, thyme, salt, and pepper, intending to roast it for dinner. However, when dinner came around, I didn't feel like roasting the veg and just threw some spinach in the dish and called it a salad while I cooked up some fusili. An odd choice, I guess, but I'm trying to clear up some room in said pantry.
Salad and fusili, topped with homemade pasta sauce (to clear out the fridge) and a bit of pesto (cuz, really, if you've got it, flaunt it.) Watch that fusili clip!!
