Good morning love doves, and Happy Valentine’s Day! How was your weekend?
Mine was fun and jam-packed, hence the name of this post, which is quite the mouthful:)
I’m so glad you chickadees loved the Indulgence Friday recipe! If you missed it, have a look and make it now, mmk?
So in the spirit of my love for all things quick-and-dirty (get your minds out of the gutter people), I am going to TRY to ramble a tad less than usual. But only a little.
Okay, number one!
Quick, delicious. I don’t have a spiralizer because I am a cheapo so I used my vegetable peeler and ate the middle part that wouldn’t noodlify:).
That part I just ate like a pretzel rod…or a stick..or a microphone. I don’t know, what kinds of foods are in stick-form? (out of the gutter, people!)
Topped with Amy’s Low Sodium Marinara, nooch, and raisins obv.
Then for dessert, I whipped up a double batch of my Raw Chocolate Mousse, and it was gone by the end of the night, I think that says everything mmk.
The night was spent eating lots of that and watching Greek on Hulu. Ob. sessed.
Con banana slices, bloobs, rasps, and cacao nibs.
I woke up, made a delicious Brendan Brazier Thrive energy pudding, and then went to the gym to kick some surrious Dreadmill bootay with an easy seven-miler, it was glorious.
I am thanking lord baby Jesus right now that my hammie is no longer a-killin me. I CAN RUN AGAIN
Then I came home, showered, did my makeup, did my hair, got changed, and packed my breakfast all in half an hour. I think it is safe to say I am a PRO.
That is an actual license plate that I found when I was at my lake house, I was so ecstatic jumpy umpy that I had to take a picture:)
And yes, I ate my cookie dough breakfast in church. Priorities, people.
Beet It juice (beets, carrots, swiss chard, apple, and ginger) alongside the Apple Curry Salad in a Collard Wrap (apple, carrots, celery, avocado, tomato, cucumber, sunflower seeds, raisins in an orange curry sauce) and a Carrot, Beet, Raisin salad.
This was to. die. Give me anything with sunflower seeds and raisins and I will love you forever.
Devoured and sufficiently made a giant mess out of. I am a messy eater
Almond Ginger Nori Roll (almonds, ginger, marinated veggies in Tamari (wheat-free soy sauce), garlic, miso, spinach, avocado, sprouts).
Beautiful, delicious. I absolutely hated it;)
I told you I’m a messy eater!
If you don’t believe me my sister took a picture, don’t look at my face I look icky that is not my good side.
I am sorry you had to see that. But let’s be honest you guys love pictures of me stuffing my face
Then came DESSERT!
Raspberry Ganache Cake and Strawberry Macaroons.
Words cannot even express. Why have I not had raw macaroons sooner?! These were so good, I usually am not a big fan of the co-co-nut, but these turned me from a coco hater to a coco LOVA.
So freaking good, it was like a strawberry milkshake on crack but better because it is solid.
And this Raspberry Ganache Cake…can I just say my life has been changed forever. This was the most delicious, rich, and perfectly chocolatey cake I have ever had.
Perfectly sweet, and perfectly bitter.
Fudgy, thick, and scrumdiddlyumptious. I swear she put crack in this cake, the lady next to me couldn’t finish hers so I finished it for her:)
I am recreating this cake for next weekend’s Indulgence Friday, so get excited:)
Okay the bathroom at the brunchy brunch was creepy, ghetto, and in a basement. Hence, CGB.
IT WAS SO COOL.
Have you ever seen the Blair Witch Project? You should. The corner the guy stands in at the end…yeah, this basement looked exactly like the house. I swear to bejeezus it was filmed here.
Normally this would freak the sugar out of people, but instead I was basically hopping up and down as Sacha was warning me about the creep factor.
Little did she know, I am a crazyins and this was like Christmas Morning. I am a sucker for crazy stuff.
Then, I came home and whooped some schoolwork, then headed off to a new youth group with my sister, and it was so. much. fun. These people are as crazykins as I am, so you can imagine how skipdiddlydoo happy I was.
One kid hugs everyone, gave me candy, and counted the number of colors on my shirt with me.
By the way, yesterday’s outfit was ADORABLE, but I was too busy eating at the lunch to get a picture of myself besides the one of me stuffing my face, so here is a mirror shot:
Everything is from Forever21, I am obsessed. It is all cheap and cute, aka the perfect place for a cheapo like me
Then I came home and ate food bigger than my house, and watched the Grammys. Did anyone else giggle when they saw Lady Gaga’s outfit? I did:)
Go wish Janae a Happy Late Birthday!! She got a crazy hot treadmill, one day I will find a man that will buy me awesome toys like that.
If you happen to find one, feel free to forward him over to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please and thanks:)
That’s all for today lovies! Have a rockin’ Valentine’s Day, whether you’re single and mingling (like me) or spending time with your significant other
I leave you with this, my friends:
How are celebrating Valentine’s Day? Or if you hate Valentine’s Day, tell me why you absolutely hate it and we will curse all men together:)
LUNCH, and I love Valentine’s Day, it reminds me of elementary school when we would make “mailboxes” out of shoe boxes and decorate them and get tons of valentines and candy:)
Did you watch the Grammys? Thoughts?
Yes, I am never going to see Never Say Never. Justin Bieber used to be adorable when he was still YouTube’ing and undiscovered, but now it is just toomuch. SLash I love Lady Antebellum:)
Do you eat in church too?
Yes, I cannot go more than 2 hours without food, I would start gnawing on the Bible.
