Hippies+ Hummus =Happiness

14 May

Hey all-the wknd is here-woo hoo!! I racked up nine hours of OT this wk so suffice to say, I’m happy this wk is over. Let’s go over some eats and things from the past two days. And on a side note, having MAJOR issues with Photobucket and my pictures tonight and am slowly going crazy.

I had a savory bowl of oats yesterday at work with a baked apple and chunky  peanut butter. This was one of the jars of Crazy Richards that I won and really don’t eat pb too much (blasphemy I know) so I decided to take it into work and add into my daily breakfast routine.

Yesterday was crazy busy….I’m  talking ridiculously crazy busy. On average, I will close 50 to 60 trades but yesterday—-117. WTF?  So more than double that I normally do and still kept my sanity (somewhat). Sucks though because it was an absolutely beautiful day and I felt cute.

Really digging this whole wearing skirts business, why did I go so long without wearing skirts?

Another BIG Salad for lunch (I am really die hard about celebrating National Salad Month) with baby spinach,carrots, mushrooms, tomato and chicken salad that I made the night before. I usually chop the chicken but mixed celery, onion and chicken in the food processor and the consistency was like KFC’s cole slaw (one of my most favorites ever) and I loved it. I topped with T Marzetti’s Honey Balsamic.

I needed an afternoon pick me up which could only mean one thing—half priced frapp! Due to the bad day, I went all out……Grande Coffee Frapp with whipped cream and caramel drizzle–awww yeah

I went to Copper last night with my networking group. I’ve only had Indian food once before and had anything involving curry so I was a little weary to try it again but was pleasantly surprised. I was in MAJOR need of an alcoholic beverage and went with King Fisher Premium Lager (x3)

We started out with naan (which I loved and could eat all day long) and various dips such as a mint and cilantro chutney, yogurt with carrots and another orange jellyish one that tasted like duck sauce. I had to stop myself from gorging on that alone because in my book beer and bread is totally a legit meal.

I was going to go with the tiki masala but ended up getting a spiced duck dish which was marvelous

 I just love when food is also artwork. All in all, good times had by all! It was nice to get out and try something different for once. I can’t wait until I move since it won’t take me a good half hour just to get to places like this restaurant (which is conveniently located in the neighborhood I am moving to).

I was completely dragging this morning but had the light of the tunnel which is the wknd in mind so I rallied and pulled through.

I tried out my Liberte Yogurt-Plum and Walnut for breakfast.

I added banana, coconut granola and unsweetened coconut to it

The one thing I forgot? A spoon to eat it with. So I had to eat yogurt with a plastic fork. Good times.

I got a little break in work today so not terribly busy but not peaceful but I did get some good buys from my hippies

Their cilantro bunches were only $1 and it’s all I could smell the rest of the day. I loved it.

I polished off the last of my hummus which was bittersweet.


I had a weakass lunch of chicken, cheese, rice and tomato. Such a shame to because it looked pretty. I ate everything but the rice, it just tasted nasty.

I stopped at Trader Joe’s on the way home and picked up their Kalamata Olive Hummus

I took a much-needed nap when I get home and had dinner around 830P which is super late for me. I had Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken with peppers, onions, zucchini, mushrooms and peas.

And a funny flick for my entertainment

I was planning on catching up on blogs tonight other than that but this post has taken me two hours to post so now I’m extremely frustrated. And I’m waking up at 7A tomorrow so yeah, I need rest.
