It’s Friday! I hope you all had a productive week like I did. My thesis proposal is coming along slowly but surely and I CANNOT WAIT for it to be done…in September? Maybe? Oy.. Anyways I’m really looking forward to this weekend! We’re going to a Goldeyes game tonight which is the closest team to the NBL we’ve got. They’re actually in the American baseball league or something so they play teams from Minnesota, North Dakota, and Illinois (maybe? – I could also be making this up). All I know is they have beer and I can eat sunflower seeds. Hope you all have a great weekend and here’s a little taste of what I’ve been up to this week .Thanks to Clare for hosting Five Things Friday! Enjoy!
5 Things I Ate
Smoothies! I’ve been missing these guys, but I had two this week! I had a TON of greens to use up and I also tossed in some blueberries/strawberries, a slice of lemon (skin and all), hemp hearts, chia seeds, and a banana.
Grilled sweet potatoes. I had never tried to grill them before but they turned out awesome! I want to try grilling peaches next.
Apricots. I saw them at the grocery store this week and I knew I had to have them. It was unfortunate though because the first one I ate was so far from ripe it was a struggle to eat it. I have no idea why I tried to eat it, it was hard as a rock.
All the salads. I was not joking when I said we had an excess of greens. I’m pretty sure we had a salad for dinner every night from Sunday to Wednesday.
Roasted Spaghetti Squash. I made a whole one last night and used half of it to make a side dish for supper (sauté it with onions, mushrooms, black beans and spices) but I still have the other half in the fridge – oh the opportunity!
5 Things Making Me Happy
A new foodie pen pal! I’m headed to the Farmers Market this weekend to pick up some goods – that’s like two things making me happy, I LOOOOVVE the Farmers Market.
Scoring the winning point in our ultimate game on Tuesday! It was a set up, I didn’t deserve it, but it’s mine anyways!
Planning summer adventures. Looks like I may be headed to America twice this summer. You better believe I’ll be stocking up on Justin’s and La Croix.
The baseball game tonight! I’m excited to see some #bestschoolfriends that I haven’t seen in a while.
GERMANY MAKING IT TO THE FINALS! I’ll be busy Sunday fyi.
