Hey Guys! See that picture up there? That is what my fridge looked like when I got home from my weekend. Empty. I had no choice but to break out the freezer fruit and make ice cream.
I love me some ice cream, but there comes a time when Bat needs to do some shopping. There is also a time when a Bat needs to cook and clean. It was that time for me on Tuesday. It was my first day “off” after the retreat, so it was time to
get shit done get caught up around here! I started my day with some asana, as well as some computer time.
I then did some laundry, vaccuming, sweeping and floor cleaning, as well as kitchen and bathroom scrubbing. This place now shines like the top of the Chrysler building. Then it was off to the Market! It is currently in between seasons, so the shady bin looked like this;
Which made me sad and almost made me want to sail away to a more plentiful place;
But I did not. After looking around a little more, I found some good stuff.
Could I go a week without these?!
Next, I had an appointment with a dermatologist. I have had a rash on my arm for about a month, that appeared out of no where. So I went to this guy.
I did not have time to go home in between the market and my appointment, so I had to take all my fruit to the office with me. I felt pretty silly…
Here is what the hubub was about;
Diagnosis? Contact Dermatitis. AKA, you touched something and it gave you a rash. Thanks guy. My plan is to coconut butter it all away. And maybe some of this will help too?
Next, it was time to shop for My Love and My Baby sister! I got them these things, so that I could make them some things to eat this week. Their shelves looked as bare as mine did when I got home. Looks like I have enabled them to helplessness.
I also picked up the replacement blade for Blendy!
All good as new;
I christened the new blade by making cinnamon sticks into cinnamon powder. Without Blendy I have had some really chunky cinnamon times. Needless to say, I am pleased Blendy is back.
Next, I made some lentils with spinach, onions, garlic, ginger, spices and mustard. Spicy and bright.
I made roasted eggplant and zucchini dip with sunflower seeds, herbs, spices and lots and lots of garlic, lemon and balsamic vinegar.
I de-apple-crisp-virginized My Love with this lovely creation. (I know, I can’t believe that he has never had apple crisp in his life either)
To finish the day, I made some chocolate peanut butter coconut fudge in the food processor, and stirred that into some oats, raisins and dates for some fudgy oat drop cookies.
After all of that, I needed some home made ginger tea;
Along side some sweet sweet goodness.
Do you ever have days off that are not really off?
