I've got a few out-of-the ordinary things today.
Breakfast was small today: banana and raw almond butter because I ate way too much hummus and cucumber last night and felt sick. The good news on that one is that I realized I don't actually like Sabra hummus much (although enough to eat too much of it). So, what to do with all the Sabra coupons I've somehow amassed? Easy: pass them onto you guys.
Two winners randomly picked will each receive two Sabra coupons for $1 off any 8oz. or more Sabra variety (expiration 12/31/11). To enter, just tell me your favorite type of dip - it doesn't have to be hummus! I'll keep the giveaway open until Friday, July 15.
Also, I typically stick to food photos on here (and ones of my cat) but here's a shot of the dress I finished yesterday, 'cuz some of you were interested. Those of you who weren't interested, well, avert yr eyes.
The top part is half of an old shirt and the lower half is part of a hoodie - you can kind of see the pocket. Basically I did very little work beyond sewing the two halves together and sewing a band with ties onto it, but I'm pretty pleased with how it came out (aka at least it's wearable.)
Anyway, today was HOT and I had a lot of chores to do. Somehow I ended up walking 3 miles (after a half hour bus ride) to pick up 30 lbs. of cat food and then hauled it all back home. I did laundry, swept, steam-mopped (and got pretty steamy myself), and cleaned the bathroom. After that all I took a shower and ate a huge salad. The salad part is not so out-of-the-ordinary.
Romaine, baby spinach, red cabbage, shredded carrot, cucumber, and raw corn topped with Green Goddess Dressing.
I also decided I deserved a drink. I made something nice, not my usual beer, inspired by Shen's of late and Feisty Forks'.
This is a Pimm's Cup with muddled blueberries, lemon juice, mint and seltzer water. I sat out on our fire escape for a breeze and realized our next-door neighbors have a chicken coop and three chickens in their yard! The things hiding in the wilds of Brooklyn.
I made an orzo salad with pesto, artichokes, and sun-dried tomatoes for G but since I'm still trying to stay away from cooked foods for now, my dinner was another salad:
Romaine, carrot, tomato, and sun-dried tomato topped with an herb dressing (parsley, basil, garlic scapes, tahini, miso paste, and lemon juice).
That's all. Perhaps another drink or two.
