Good morning and Happy What I Ate Wednesday. It’s also a full moon day. Anyone else ever feel more tired the week of a full moon? Just the other day I was talking to someone about how I’m up like a f***ing shot every morning, but go figure, Monday morning, I totally thought my second alarm clock was a dream, and 7:30 a.m. found me in a cab heading to work. The universe was obviously laughing at me.
I then proceeded to show up for a meeting that wasn’t scheduled until Tuesday. I’m shocked I managed to stay awake, much less get any real work done. Yet somehow…
Anyway, I thought we’d backtrack a little to Sunday this week, which was spent cleaning and hanging with friends at a cookie exchange party (where the hosts surprised us all by announcing they’re getting married!). As always, many thanks to the lovely Jenn of Peas & Crayons for hosting the weekly link party—hop on over there to see more WIAW from other bloggers!
- Breakfast: Savory oats with zucchini and spinach cooked in, later topped with tahini (recycled pic)
- Lunch: Big salad with pulled quicken, goat cheese, and balsamic; toast with hummus and roasted eggplant
- Dinner: Chickpeas, kale, and mushrooms in a spicy tomato sauce (similar to this recipe—perhaps I’ll post a new recipe soon)
- Snacks: Greek yogurt with fig preserves & cereal, bites of a few cookies at the party; an after-dinner chocolate treat from my friend Surkhab; sliced banana with non-fat ricotta before bed
Do you get tired during the full moon? What’s your favorite cookie?
