i'd say "wow i'm glad it's friday" but i think i begin every single friday post like that and it's getting a little tired. so instead, let's just launch right into some of the randomness in my brain this fine friday morning...
whoever invented string cheese is my favorite person on earth. whoever decided to slap jalapeno in it is my second favorite person. cheese and apples has long been one of my favorite combinations and having this for a snack in the morning has been rocking my universe. also i've realized that i don't enjoy the string-pulling part of string cheese. i love it for its convenience but i just eat it like one would any other stick shaped snack, i don't pull it apart. does that make me weird?
anyone want to come over and have tea and cookies with me? i've taken to freezing my cookies because i bake so damn often that i always have about two dozen cookies on hand and if i leave them out in a jar i am way too likely to eat all of them in one sitting. this way i just grab a few at night and toss them in the microwave for my dessert. i have been loving eating these banana oatmeal gems with my sugar cookie sleigh ride tea at night. i'm going to be bummed when i run out of that tea because i don't really like a lot of tea and this seasonal one has been hitting the spot lately.
caitlin suggested (since i said i hated taking my vitamins) that i procure myself some gummy vitamins because then i can pretend they're candy. i immediately did and guess what? i haven't missed a dose. i have been a champ taking my vitamins and supplements this week - i think the gummies and the day of the week pill pack are my saving grace.
i have had the same damn push notification alert on my phone since the new operating system was released for the iphone. i don't have enough storage space to download the operating system so i am stuck with the stupid red alert but no capability to download it. this drives me absolutely up a wall because i hate having notifications (i immediately update apps as soon as the red number pops up). have you ever heard a higher class problem? no? i know, i feel obnoxious for even complaining about it.
this seltzer tastes vaguely like a creamsicle. take this with a grain of salt - no, drinking this water is not as heavenly as eating a creamsicle. i HATE when people try to be all "oh this zucchini cut in the shape of a fry and baked tastes JUST LIKE FRENCH FRIES" because that shit is a lie. it tastes like zucchini and sadness. however, this water does smack of creamsicles and it makes me happy every day at lunch.
i had one of those moments when i was eating my dinner last night where my plate reminded me of those magazine articles that compare healthy swaps and say, "you can eat this (insert pic of tiny cheeseburger) or you can eat ALL THIS! (insert pic of massive healthy swap for a burger here)". i had a giant plate of spaghetti squash with marinara and chicken sausage mixed in and then topped it with mozz and had a roll on the side. it was so good and so much food. love me some spaghetti squash. i'm sad i used up all of my leftovers on last night's dinner because i know the end of spaghetti squash season is close and i feel like i'm just getting into my groove with the gourd.
what randomness is floating around your brain this morning? do tell.
