Last night, the Husband and I went on a date. Keepin’ the romantic alive by seeing the creepiest movie ever.
Contagion tells the story of a flu-like disease that spreads rapidly and kills off a large portion of the world’s population. Think: lots of long, lingering shots on everything the contaminated people coughed on, sneezed over, or touched. Did you know the average person touches their face 2,000 – 3,000 times a day?
After the movie, we got fries from Five Guys but were way too paranoid to touch any surfaces (I’m hoping this wears off in a day or two).
You say peanuts, I say HOTBED OF INFESTATION.
All joking aside, it was a good movie – pretty slow but good. It really makes you think about how our modern, global society is so vulnerable to viruses and germs.
I have a great (germ-free) breakfast recipe for you. Sometimes, I lay in bed in the morning, trying to wake up, and think about fun breakfast recipes. And this is what I came up with today. Think – savory oats, but better.
Quinoa Hummus Breakfast Bowl
- 1/3 cup quinoa
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup Holy Deliciousness Hummus
- 1 handful raw spinach
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 egg
- Sliced almonds
- In a small pot, cook the quinoa and water per these directions.
- Meanwhile, scramble the egg in a separate container.
- When the quinoa is almost done, add in the torn spinach and hummus.
- Stir thoroughly and allow to heat through.
- Add salt and pepper.
- Scoop into bowl and top with egg and sliced almonds.
It’s raining, it’s pouring…
Another day at the computer. I must be productive today, especially since I wasn’t yesterday!
And being productive definitely includes disinfecting my entire house.
Ha I’m reading this with the sniffles I caught from a NICU baby with Rhinovirus who I took care of for 2 days before he got diagnosed and put in isolation. I understand the germ theory all too well!
