Hello friends! It’s been some seriously sweaty and hot two days, but I am still here, not dried out or wilted. I make sure to hydrate myself (I’ve had about 2.5 liters of water already in the past 4 hours!).
I’ve been doing alot of just moseying around, bumming, and reading (blogs and books alike). I gotta admit, I like having all the time in the world to read blogs. I don’t feel pressured, I can actually read them (instead of sprinting my eyes through lines), make thoughtful comments, and truly absorb what I read.
If only blog surfing/reading/commenting was a paid full-time job…I’m sure we’ll all be making a beeline for the interview.
With all the time in the world, I can dig around in our fridge and scrounge up some grubs for lunch.
These salted eggs are by no means healthy, because of the high sodium content, but they are a source of protein.
I scooped out half the egg, chopped them, and piled them on top of a piece of rye bread with cheese and avocado.
It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t divine either. I think the salted egg overpowered everything else, namely the avocado.
On the side I enjoyed some steamed cauliflower and leftover Chinese purple veggies.
See the purple juice?
Anyone care for some smoked peppered ham?
No I didn’t become a meat-eater since the last post! I am honestly still vegetarian…unless you count eating gelatin making me non-vegetarian. Taiwan makes the best imitation meat…so real that it fooled my cat on several accounts! I know these are highly-processed, so I try to limit my consumption of these imitation meat.
Since I have all the time in the world, I did a little baking.
I told Lauren that these Peanut Butter Crunch Muffins would be the first thing I’ll bake when I get home to Taiwan. I followed her recipe, but sprinkled some muesli on top for aesthetic purpose and some extra crunch. These were good, but could definitely up the amoung of PB! I love uber rich PB cookies or muffins! 😀
I also made some cookies, recipe by yours truly! This is the very first cookie recipe I’ve come up myself, and they sort of remind me of Supercharge-Me Cookies. Perhaps I had those in mind when I was creating this recipe for Muesli Cookies.
Recipe to come tomorrow!
Continuing on with these sweet notes, I’d like to share some items commonly found in bakeries here in Taiwan.
Doughy bread stuffed with sweet buttery crumbs in the middle. Again, these are in no way healthy, but oh-so-delicious!
I may have all the time in the world, but I still don’t want to clean up somebody’s mess!
My mom and I went out yesterday morning for a yoga class, leaving my dad and my little sis at home. We were gone for a maximum of 4 hours, and then I came home to a house full of trash and half-eaten food left out.
Um..okay. Who leaves a finished container of pudding in the fridge?
This is something only my little sister would do–leaving containers, juice boxes, soda cans, etc that have been eaten clean in the fridge. Sometimes I feel like my mom and I are the only adults in the house, and my dad and my sister are the immature kids. Is there anyone in your family who’s like my sister?
Anyhooz, I saw this on one of my yoga teachers Facebook yesterday and was totally captured by the wisdom of it.
Do you agree/disagree with any of these observations?
Alright, I’m off to do some more reading, snacking, watching TV! Life is good 😀
