Today is my last day at home for a while (ok, not a long while…a week). I’m heading back to school tomorrow to get ready for my chemistry class, which starts on Monday. So it was another day of packing up, just two weeks after I packed up and moved out from my residence hall.
I was up around 7:15 and enjoyed a cup of Earl Grey Green before making breakfast. I kept it light because I wanted to run soon after:
After breakfast I watched the Today Show while my mom was out running. I didn’t have my car because I was getting the oil changed, so I had to wait for her to get back from the park. I headed to the park a little after 9:30.
The weather was NOT favorable for running:
I did the lake loop at the park which is 3.7 miles:
After my run, I needed some definite liquid replacement:
Topped with some leftover honey-cilantro dressing. So good.
And some fresh fruit. Gotta finish this stuff up tomorrow!
I had a snack of toast with avocado before dinner:
Dinner tonight was really easy. Another recipe from the Quick-Fix Vegan cookbook. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone: vegans, vegetarians or carnivores. The recipes are great!
Tonight I made chipotle corn and quinoa with pinto beans. This recipe was super simple and cooked up in about 30 minutes!
I started by sweating some onions in a pan. Then you add garlic and the dry quinoa, which gets toasty. To that, I added vegetable broth, kidney beans (we had a can in the pantry), fresh corn and one chopped chipotle pepper.
Tonight we are watching baseball (go Michael Wacha!), the Spelling Bee finals and some NBA basketball. It’s a good night! Tomorrow morning I’m packing up the rest of my stuff and heading back to Columbia!
