I haven’t been blogging lately because I’m all kinds of cuckoo for cocoa puffs over the World Cup. Men in tight shorts. Need I say more?
Alright that’s total crap. Aside from the Hubby’s running commentary and believe me, it is running, I’ve haven’t watched a lick of it. I really do like the ♫ Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole ♫ song they keep playing on TV though. It makes me feel all festive and want to sing Ole multiple times on repeat. Whoever came up with that ditty is a marketing genius. It also makes me want to drink beer, and I don’t even like beer. Yep, suggestive commerce at its finest.
What can I say about my brief disappearance, aside from the fact I’m sure you all noticed. I mean, it’s not like you have lives of your own. What’s that? You do….oh, well then you know what I’m getting ready to say, especially if you’re an introvert. Blue skies coupled with the summer sun tends to kick life into overdrive and along with it comes lots of social engagements, many of which are too good to turn down. Um, hello? Yoga in front of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with 2,000 other yogi. Yeah, I did that. It was bad ass in a peaceful Zen type of way, of course.
The more of a social butterfly I become, and mind you I wouldn’t change a thing from the past few days, the more recovery time I need. The introvert in me has to play possum. Instead of actually being dead because that would totally suck, I’m more like an ostrich burying my head in the sand. Plus, those birds are pretty hot.
It’s been a few days now, and I’m starting to feel more like myself so what better way to shake a tail feather than to come back and join in some What I Ate Wednesday fun. A big thank you goes to Ms. Jenn, our hostess with the mostess.
I give you my Sunday eats.
In no particular order (yeah right), breakfast was half of the Breadsmiths new Vegan Blueberry Banana Muffin, not because I have amazing self-control, although stranger things have happened, but really because I was being a good wife and saving half for the Hubby. It was delicious, and I might have bastardized it with a pat of butter. Lunch was a snack platter made up of an apple and lots of Honey Roasted Peanut Butter, alongside some Sweetened Banana Chips. Later on in the day, I had an unpictured Brownie Bite and a Lemon Square. Needless to say, my sweet tooth is alive and well. I also snacked on some Garlic Scape Pesto with fistfuls of crackers and two pieces of Tuscan Herb Bread. Dinner was a salad with berries and blue cheese, plus a big ol’ plate full of pasta with some Spicy Tomato Pepper Sauce I had made and frozen last summer. It came with a side of green beans, also from my deep freezer. There’s no truth to rumor I’m trying to use up all my last bits and bobs before I go on another freezing bender (cough, cough, lies and deceit, cough, cough).
Now forgive me because I have to end this post with a little ♫ Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole ♫ C’mon, sing it with me. ♫ Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole ♫ Feels good, right.
Are you an introvert? If so how do you recharge from summer social engagements? Anyone else digging the ♫ Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole ♫ song? It’s okay to admit it. I’m right there with you.
