Pure Love

It’s almost that time again…time for my 2 hours of trash TV for the week. You can give me all the crap you want about watching The Bachelor, but it’s one of my guilty pleasures. Before ogling over the stud of a bachelor for the rest of the night, let me inform you about today’s eats.

Lunch = leftovers…a slice of savory pie + 1/2 an apple.

Snacks =

  1. handful of bittersweet chocolate chips + 12 oz. non fat latte
  2. 1/2 cup o% Oikos, 1/2 banana & granola

Dinner = sushi…oh, how I’ll miss you Tempura Roll.

I finally remembered to order my roll with brown rice tonight – nice ‘n’ nutty.

[Insert Chocolove – 65% cocoa- dark chocolate here.]

Ok, that’s it. The show has started and I want to give it my full attention : )

What are your guilty pleasures – TV, food…?

Life’s Simple Pleasures

Hi All,

Who’s excited about Santa’s arrival just a day away? Me, Me, Me! Of course it isn’t as exciting as when I was a little kid, but I am certainly looking forward to it. I think one of my favorite traditions that I miss is putting out cookies and carrots for Santa and his reindeer. I placed whatever homemade cookies that hadn’t been eaten yet on the designated “Cookies for Santa” plate along with a cold glass of milk and placed them on top of the woodstove, along with my Christmas wish list of course. Ok, get this…I did this halfway through high school. No, I didn’t still believe in Old Saint Nick, but that’s how much of a stickler I am about tradition : )

Today was rather uneventful, but I did enjoy some of my favorite eats:

Around 3:30pm, I made myself a homemade egg nog latte (with Silk and hand drip decaf coffee). I even topped it off with a dusting of nutmeg. It was a beauty, if I do say so myself.

Check out that thick cloud of foam – mmm!

I may have consumed a couple of cookies with this. Ugh, does anyone else feel like Cookie Monster lately?

Then after shopping for groceries with my dad for tomorrow’s feast, we picked up sushi (yes, again) at Sushi Spot. This place is hard to resist, folks : )

Family Style


Tomorrow’s a busy day for me:

– run with Court & gift exchange @ Cafe Brio

– “run” to the bank

– pack for Sonoma County weekend

– cook & clean for company

– dinner @ 6:00pm!

Off to catch some zzz’s,

Sushi [always hits the] Spot

Hey hey. How’s your Tuesday thus far? I have been crossing off my to-do list left and right.

Lunch at Sushi Spot was scrumptious as always. It was really great to catch-up with my friends Amanda and Jane who I’ve been friends with since 6th and 3rd grade – they’re the type you keep forever : ) For lunch, I had a Tempura Roll (tempura prawn, tempura yam, avocado & spices) and a Sunomono Salad (cucumber, carrot, seaweed, vinegar).

You noticed the fork, didn’t ya? Yes, despite growing up with Japanese food, I am chopstick-challenged : )

Anyway, I’m off to search for recipes for Christmas Eve dinna – times a running out!

A Mellow Monday

Today was a rather uneventful day here on the homefront. Not a lot to share. I did have a piece of leftover galette for lunch, and managed to capture a decent picture. It was scrumptious!

I can’t visit home without a meal from Sushi Spot – it really has the best sushi rolls in town. So…with a fire crackling in the wood stove, we decided on sushi to go and enjoyed it in the comfort of our warm home.

I ordered the Dragonfly Roll: tempura prawn, avocado, cucumber, carrot, cilantro, macadamia nuts and sweet chili sauce…and edamame, of course!

Looking forward to getting my hair cut tomorrow, researching Thanksgiving dessert recipes (slacker), and hopefully crafting with my mom…

Take care ya’ll!
