today’s post for what I ate wednesday actually includes sunday, monday, and tuesday highlights, but I couldn’t resist. wiaw is hosted by jenn at peas & crayons.
the weekend rounded itself out with a nice celebration to end sunday. EP and I got a slice of pizza, and headed over to community day near his house. it was pretty boring, and he said compared to last year, there were practically no vendors, games, or crafters. but we were there for the night’s finale.
i. love. fireworks. and i hadn’t seen any this year. i pulled out my iphone to snap some photos, and then actively forced myself to put it away, since i knew i wouldn’t get any perfect photos, and really, really wanted to enjoy the show.
after that, we stopped at don and bert’s on the way home. inspired by the lovely ms. fran, i knew i had to go to the ice cream stand one last time for a sundae before they close up for the year. i’m good for two gigantic sundaes every year – once as soon as they open, and once when i’m afraid they’re about to close.
it’s almost too sickeningly sweet to describe: vanilla soft-serve [but of course], malt, hot fudge, and marshmallow sauce, with whipped cream and a [discharded] cherry.
delicious. and i didn’t scrape the cup clean, so i didn’t feel as terrible as i usually feel after this.
i moped through monday and made myself a light take on pizza for dinner. tortilla pizza: tortillas, garlic-packed red sauce, mozzarella, basil, and frozen pineapple chunks. they weren’t spectacular, because i didn’t crisp them up enough under the broiler before flipping and adding toppings, but they were just pizza-y enough to make me a bit happier on monday night.
also, they were enjoyed with a few episodes of roswell and some “cinnamon + sugar” candlelight. ;-)
monday was just a mopey day all around, but today was an awful work day. i didn’t cry or walk out or anything. but everyone was nasty and grumpy and i couldn’t accomplish all i was supposed to. but… after work, i met my dad for a great time playing tennis. and then we joined my mom for a chinese food feast. i had broccoli in garlic sauce, white rice, duck sauce, and some of my mama’s egg drop soup. it all went unphotographed, and entirely because i forgot to grab my camera because i was just too excited.
the day started off with an actual plan for breakfast. crazy! i’ve been resorting to protein shakes and granola bars because i’ve been falling out of bed a bit too late. but today: oats with vanilla sun warrior protein powder, and a microwaved cinnamon apple all mixed in. it was pretty stupendous. and i finally felt like i had a delicious, healthy start to at least one day this week.
happy wiaw! and happy tuesday night.
