I got a solid 9 hours of sleep last night. Which was much needed. Unfortunately I awake to a massive headache, stomach ache and some cramps, so I knew right away the long run was out of the question. Instead, I’m pampering myself this morning to see if I can either make it up this afternoon/evening, as Santa Cruz is cool enough where I won’t die of a heat wave, or if I’ll go for it in the morning.
I have a feeling tomorrow morning may be a bit more likely. Le sigh.
As a part of my pampering this morning, I opted to indulge in the Grilled Banana Sandwich a la Caitlin after reading her blog. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Although, I did have to make a few changes as I had no brown sugar or powdered sugar on hand. Thus, I used a little stevia and added some nutmeg. Delish.
Seriously, there is nothing like starting the day of with ‘dessert.’ It brings a smile to my face and a quote to my mind my father likes to adhere to:
‘Life is uncertain, eat dessert first’.’
I’m also thinking this would be a good sandwich with a bit of warmed pumpkin. Once I am able to acquire some pumpkin, I must try this out.
Now I’m off to a study sesh up on campus with my class, and then I have the excitement of – wait for it, wait for it – MORE STUDYING! I lead an exciting life. With studying comes a lunch…
Leftover Chicken Sausage & Pasta
And a spinach salad with goat cheese and a red wine vinaigrette
And probably attempting to create a turkey Crock-Pot dish, and a goat cheese and fig pizza like Jenna raved about last week at a Texas restaurant. I saw it and decided I must have it.
