almost back to normal

I woke up insanely early this morning considering I rarely eat brekkie at the apartment on work days.  But, hey, I like to color outside the lines.  Watch out!

Coffeeeeeeee!!

If you add a gallon of soymilk, it doesn’t really stain your teeth, right?  Sure, Elise, whatever helps you sleep at night…

I was feeling nearly 100% (thank goodness) so I had a quick bite (Alvarado street bread toasted with Earth Balance spread) and then I was off to work…

Look at all the Odwalla bars my mom sent me home with!!!  She knows how much I love these babies, so she packed up a case of them.  Isn’t she the BEST!!  Thanks mom!

I never leave home without one with me.  As Phoebe says “always be prepared” – it just makes good sense!

Work was work.  Whatever.  I had packed my lunch the night before.  It looks like a subway commercial it’s so textbook “healthy.”

I got home to a semi-controlled chaos.  At least dinner was on the stove (Kyle’s mom knows the key to my heart)…so I tried to ignore the mess in the apartment, and focus on the good: such as the fact that our bed and couch miraculously fit through the doorway (and I wasn’t involved in the process to force it to do so).

Dinner was an interesting one.  As a tofu virgin, Kyle’s mom was a bit nervous to prepare a dish for me.  I had to relinquish control (difficult would be an understatement) because it just wasn’t worth it.  Chicken broth!  Ick.  I could have died.  I think my tofu was right next to their chicken, too.  They may have touched.  Ew. 

No photos because they don’t know about the blog.  Sorry kiddos.  I DO have the recipe though:

Chicken Monterey

  • 4 boneless chicken breasts (plus tofu for me)
  • onion
  • 4 carrots
  • garlic
  • chicken broth – 2 cans
  • orange juice
  • canned tomatoes (diced)
  • rosemary
  • red bell pepper
  • zucchini
  • yellow squash
  • white rice

Please note the ingreds I would drop dead before using probably not choose: white rice, chicken broth, and OJ (not my faves)

Still it was good and I didn’t have to make it.

I had several handfuls of these while getting organized for work tomorrow (which is hard to do when you can’t remember which apartment your things are in).

    Soymilk or no soymilk, coffee just doesn’t stain your teeth – it’s an urban legend ;) Love the bread and buttah!
