I’m finalllly watching the inauguration! Very exciting. It’s nice to watch positive history.
I spent the afternoon trying to organize. Our house is a disaster. We’re going to put some $$ into doing some decorating soon!! We’re starting with the bedroom. We have no style whatsoever — just a bunch of random furniture jammed against the walls.
The file cabinet was begging to be organized, so I tackled the chore after work. I threw away three trash bags of junk!
I’m putting this shot of my office on the internet to shame me into cleaning later this week.
I snacked on my usual yogurt and granola before work ended.
Appetizers and Dinner
Husband came home from school very excited. He treated his very first patient (well, while supervised in the school clinic) today! Woo hooo!
We caught up on Obamamania while munching on homemade hummus and crackers.
This was my first time at making hummus. I mostly just eyeballed measurements, but generally the hummus included:
- 2 cans chickpeas
- 1/3 cup cashew butter
- 1/3 cup EVOO
- 1 tablespoon garlic
- 2 tablespoon garlic juice
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon pepper
- 1/2 tablespoon salt
- Sprinkle of "Savory Seasonings" mix
So delish! The mix of cashew butter and chickpeas was suggested by the cookbook Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan. It was veryyy unique.
I like spicey hummus MORE, I think. But this was still very smooth and lovely. It would be good for kids (I think).
We used another new appliance, the George Foreman, to create a yummy salad.
I keep telling my fattie dachshund Maggie that I’m going to stick her in the George Foreman and press out all her fat. 😉
In addition to grilled chicken, my salad included Anne’s Organic Cesar, carrots, and fresh cherries.
I think warm chicken tastes divine over fresh romaine and spinach!
And last, but not least, Husband and I split a Resee’s PB Cup while watching TV. It’s probably tainted with salmonella or something, right?
It was a tad melted from the car, but GREAT nonetheless.
Back to Obama!
Have a great night, and I’ll see you tomorrow for another run per the Gasparilla 1/2 Marathon Training Program!
