All day I should have been working.
And I did a little bit.
But I was pleasantly distracted for 3 hours.
I’ve now got dates planned for Friday and Sunday. I simply couldn’t be more fucking happy.
I need some new clothes…
Banana, Cherry and Raisin Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies
1 1/2 cups oatmeal, quick or old fashioned
2 ripe bananas, mashed with fork until creamy
1 cup unsweetened applesauce (I used yogurt as I have no applesauce)
1/3 cup raisins, dried cranberries or a mixture of the two
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted (I used granola as I am out of nuts of any sort right now)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon (or more, to taste)
1) preheat heat oven to 350 degrees
2) mix vanilla extract & cinnamon into the applesauce
3) blend applesauce mixture with all other ingredients &
let sit for 10 minutes
4) drop cookie dough, by spoonfuls, onto a parchment paper lined cookie
sheet & flatten cookies into rounds
5) bake approx. 30 minutes, or until golden & done
6) remove from oven & let rest on cookie sheet for 5 minutes,
then move to cooling rack
7) when completely cool store in a covered container
Enjoy for breakfast, for an afternoon snack with tea/coffee or just about anytime!
*I enjoyed that these were no-sugar-added, gluten-free and egg-free. They were basically just baked oatmeal in the form of a cookie, so that’s the texture you ought to expect if you make these. They were good for a health-conscious morning! I only ate 5 out of the 6 pictured. I knew I would never eat the last one so I just threw it out.
I haven’t had a real lunch in so long, I sort of just get busy running around that I forget entirely. As I was chatting on the computer with G I realized it was 3 and I hadn’t eaten. I checked on the bread I had and of course it had gone bad long ago…I just didn’t realize because I keep skipping lunch. I had half a nectarine because well…I don’t know…I didn’t really care I guess and wasn’t too hungry yet.
Pineapple and Mushroom Pizza
This was not intended to be a thin-crust pizza. Me and pizza dough notoriously don’t get along. I cannot seem to make it properly to save my life. I also experimented with the pizza sauce and it didn’t work. Well, you never know unless you try right? It looks good, but in all actuality I failed in all aspects of this. I won’t bother posting any recipe details since this really did not turn out right.
I still ate all of the pizza. I will regret it in the morning as I ate too much and will not want breakfast. It’s ok, I won’t need it. I won’t be hungry. I can tell already.
Tomorrow I need to get all the crap done that I failed to get done today. I was distracted far too long and easily on the computer and while I did get a project finished, walked for far too long afterwards. I will get an early start and do shit up right tomorrow. I promise. I know for a fact that SOMEONE is working in the morning and so won’t be around to distract me. That will help.
Exercise: 1/2 hour of yoga, probably like…a 6-7 mile walk. It was a long walk.
