Today for lunch, I assembled a bunch of leftovers in our fridge to make this delicious wrap.
-1 whole-wheat tortilla
-the slaw I wrote about in my ango post
-chilled grilled chicken with a mango barbeque sauce (I’ll post the recipe later)
-and corn (originally from the freezer!)
So easy and delicious! Many flavors that all work well together.
I also ate my meal with some Sunburst cherry tomatoes. I usually hate cherry tomotoes, but these little yellow ones pop in your mouth and are great with slaw!
SLAW IS THE SHIT
Ever since I went to Costa Rica (oh yeah, I went to Costa Rica over spring break… I don’t really blog anymore). I’ve been obsessed with slaw.
Here is one slaw recipe my super talented health-foodie friend came up with:
-head of cabbage, sliced into slaw
Dressing: (I don’t know the exact proportions of everything, just squeeze it all in until in covers the cabbage!)
-apple cider vinegar (or normal vinegar, red wine would probably work too)
-spicy brown mustard
-honey (less honey than mustard, probably like a 2:1 or 3:1 ratio)
Then, sprinkle on some salt, pepper, and smoked paprika.
Also, I added some diced smoked gouda to mine when I ate it.
IT’S A HEALTHY, FILLING LUNCH.
Cabbage has TONS of fiber. So much, that you might want to take a beano before you go hogwild with the slaw. Hahaaa
I’ve made the mistake of eating too much slaw before……. not fun.
I’ll add pictures later!
I seem to be having a good food day
Today, I am literally just using anything I have in my apartment to make meals. It is finals week, so I need to use stuff up.
I threw together a dinner and it ended up being quite good!
-leeeetle bit of olive oil on a skillet
-two shallots or half an onion, whatever
-maybe like one cup of frozen corn
-half a can of pinto beans
-salt and pepper
take it off the skillet
shredded cheese (I used cheddar and monterey jack) and sunflower seeds.
That’s it! The sunflower seeds make it sooo yummy :)
YOU GOTTA TRY THIS!
Ok, so the lunch I just finished, like literally 5 minutes ago was delicious.
So try it. I attempted to get a picture, but it doesn’t look good, sorry.
I made a specialty egg sammie. Here’s whatcha do:
-make an “egg patty” by frying an egg on a skillet (just a little spray of Pam will do), add some salt and pepper
-put cheese on top and let it melt (I used cheddar/monterey jack because that’s what I had, but many other types of cheeses would also work)
-toast two small slices of seedy, cranberry bread (mine was an ancient grain loaf with dried cranberries speckled throughout, but cinnamon raisin would work as well!)
-add a bunch of lettuce
-spread on some spicy brown mustard and a little honey on top of that
Also, I drank this delicious latte with it that I bought from Irving’s.
It was a skim milk latte with some vanilla syrup, honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The nutmeg was delicious.
I could totally make that latte at home. And I plan to.
Lately, I’ve been realizing how weird I am. I always knew I was, but I think people are picking up on the extent of it finally/
It’s the best way to be.
This is my tattoo right after it was ready. I made it in Soul Art Cafe and tattoo, in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The artist name is Pinho. It’s an awesome job, and there is a line around my arm connecting the beggining and the end of the phrase.
"I’m not fascinated by people who smile all the time. What I find interesting is the way people look when they are lost in thought, when their face becomes angry or serious, when they bite their lip, the way they glance, the way they look down when they walk, when they are alone and smoking a cigarette, when they smirk, the way they half smile, the way they try and hold back tears, the way when their face says they want to say something but can’t, the way they look at someone they want or love… I love the way people look when they do these things. It’s… beautiful."
"Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic."
"I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass."
"It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days…Lightly, lightly—it’s the best advice ever given me. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling."
