Taking Back My Twenties

Muffalicious Morning

Posted on Dec 13, 2010 | 9 comments

What a pleasant Monday.

I arose early this morning because I had an IEP meeting at 8:30. Though my guests could have continued to sleep, they got up at 7 to make Matt and I real oatmeal, complete with a cinnamon muffin from the Seabreeze Cafe!

Although the skies were grey today, I still enjoyed the warm-ish weather and I was productive enough at work to consider it a successful Monday. When I came home from work, my apartment was perfectly clean, as if no one had been there all weekend. Kath and Kanz are the best house guests you could ask for:)

I spent some time on the bike this afternoon and then threw together a meal I remembered enjoying last month.

Cranberry blue cheese quinoa with veggies and a potato masala burger. Love this flavor combo.

I usually don’t have the energy to venture off the couch after dinner, but I was motivated by the thought of a solitary trip to Whole Foods with ample time to peruse¬†the aisles. Matt and I usually do the shopping on Sunday afternoons when the stores are packed and our time is limited, but I had to go this evening because we obviously did not go yesterday and we’re out of food. I spent a solid hour there looking at fun products and calculating exactly how much I was spending. I actually under spent for the first time in ages and still came home with tons of good stuff, including the first grapefruit of the season!! I couldn’t resist a bowl of peanut butter bumpers when I got home – perfect pre-bedtime snack.

I’m soo excited to be at home with no more big papers/reports to write and nothing huge to be done around the apt. Perhaps tonight is the night I will begin my bi-annual book club reading for the upcoming family gathering…

Good night.

    I’m always irrationally excited when I under-spend on groceries (not because I like to skimp…I don’t!). It makes me feel like I’ve been especially industrious or something of the ilk.

    What is your family reading this year?

  3. Stacy @ Every Little Thing

    That’s so funny because I have eaten both a grapefruit and Peanut Butter Bumpers for breakfast this morning!

    Also love having plenty of time a the grocery store, with minimal people!

    Do you have a recipe for the potato masala burger? It sounds delish!

      Nope…I just buy them at trader joes in the frozen section. I think they’re delicious and the only veggie burger I can find that doesn’t contain soy…

    not to sound too stalker-ish, but I was so excited that I saw you this morning on my way to work! And I’m only saying this in case you were wondering who the crazy girl was, taking triple/quadruple-takes of you! In fact I was so surprised I forgot to say hi (again, this sounds SO weird since I don’t know you, but I just live in Cambridge and work in Boston, so we just happened to cross paths this morning)
