Hello everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend :)
I was up bright and early at 7:30am today and stayed in bed checking e-mail and such until after 8:00. I finally got out of bed for breakfast and was in the mood for something savory.
I ended up making cheesy broccoli grits!
In this was:
1 packet of instant grits, prepared
1 cup of steamed broccoli (chopped up)
1 Babybel cheese (chopped up)
a generous sprinkle of black pepper
This was great! It warmed me up and kept me full for hours. I was avoiding studying and continued reading chic lit all morning until it was lunch time! I was in a Snackface state of mind and made a random plate of yummy things.
Let's get a better look at that millet love:
...Oh No! Fire ants have invaded the colony!!!
I continued reading while I ate.
In other news, we have been having major problems with our shower's low pressure and I thought it was due to some kind of build up (we have hard water). I poured some drano in a cup and immersed the head of the shower in it. Alas, it did not work.
I broke down and e-mailed my landlord about the issue (after I scrubbed the bathroom so he wouldn't think I was a slob) and he stopped by to check it out. He pulled off the showerhead and worked some kind of voodoo magic on it and now we have high pressure- more than we have ever had here! I'm so ready to shower tomorrow morning and not spend 30 minutes getting all of the shampoo out of my hair.
I was feeling snacky again about two hours after lunch and ended up depleting my limited samosa supply even more.
I forced myself to study for a little bit and talked to my little sis on the phone. She is taking the TAKS writing test on Wednesday, wish her luck!
Around 5pm I Shredded and then realized I hadn't drank any water all day. Oops! I chugged 3 glasses of water and got back to studying, which quickly turned into watching television.
I was in a creative mood for dinner and whipped something up around 7pm. I found this in my pantry:
I washed a can of chickpeas and dumped them in a skillet with a spray of Smart Balance and half a tablespoon of the spice mix.
This is what's inside the spice mix:
I added the broc an quinoa to the skillet.
Served with a Sriracha smile :)
Dessert was also had.
What do you like to do on weekends? Do you prefer getting work done or relaxing more? I'm pretty bad maintaining a healthy balance between doing both of those things...
