How Long To Christmas Break?!

Can anyone guess what I did today?

STUDIED!! I am so ready for this semester to be over.

 

I wasn’t feeling too hungry today, but I was SUPER thirsty! I drank more water today than two normal days combined!

My stomach never growled for lunch, so I waited until about 2:30 pm and finally heated up the rest of my Quiznos’ sub from Friday.

I did find time to make Caitlin’s pumpkin dip! I changed it a little bit, because I don’t like much cream cheese and used:

  • 1/4 cup low fat cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup organic canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • cinnamon
  • 1 tsp maple syrup

I dipped apple slices and cinnamon sugar pita chips in, it was heavenly!

I actually preferred the apple slices, because the chips are already so sweet!

My only other snack was some frozen peas while I studied.

For some reason I find these delectable. 😀

Dinner was on my own again, since Jason has the FLU!! 😦

I made grilled zucchini and asparagus on the George Foreman…

It’s been a great day of eats, in my book!

I need to clean up the apartment. My little sister is coming to visit tomorrow from North Carolina! She will be in Florida for three whole weeks!!!!

Fake Fall

Last night, I was on my own for dinner! Jason was home, but is living of chicken noodle soup and Gatorade. Feel better!

 

I love these nights when I’m home at a decent hour and can make whatever I feel like!

I found a recipe in REAL SIMPLE magazine that I wanted to try out: Quinoa with Mushrooms, Kale, and sweet potatoes.

I followed the recipe for the most part, but used veggie broth instead of wine because I didn’t have any. I also only made enough for one, so I quartered the recipe!

It was quite tasty, and reminded me of fall! Fall is no where to be found in Florida, so I have to pretend, by setting up pretty flowers…

Dessert was also whatever I felt like! Normally, that would be brownies and fro-yo because that’s pretty much all Jason will eat.

I have been DYING to try Angela’s Vegan PB Jam Glo-Bites and I finally had the perfect opportunity to do so!

I’m pretty sure they didn’t come out as beautiful as the originals, but they were very tasty! Next time, I want to try adding chocolate chips instead of jam. Maybe even make a pumpkin flavored one?

I finally got to bed around 11:15 pm, and didn’t wake up intil 8:15 am!! YIKES! I slept through prime running hour and that means it was HOT!!!!

I made it through… but I cut it short. I intended to run 6.0 but stopped after 5.0 miles. I ran out of water, was sweating like a crazy person, and I decided not to torture myself.

I finished the 5.0 miles in 47:20 and then headed home to take car of my flu-stricken boyfriend.

Once I got back from my run, I had an extreme craving for a bagel! Not just any bagel, an EVERYTHING bagel with cream cheese! Sometimes I get the strangest cravings, but I think it’s my body telling me something, so I try to listen to it.

NOM-NOM! It was perfect.

I’m thinking of making some hot chocolate! It’s 88 degrees outside, but its COLD in the apartment! Jason has the air cranked wwaaaaay down!

I guess you could say we are trying to fake fall around here!

 

I want it to get cooler SO BADLY!!!
