After a Friday night on the town, which included trying my first ever Manhattan way too late into the night so I woke up with a killer hangover that lasted 24 hours, and resulted in my Saturday being pretty zombie-fied, today was absolutely perfect.
Like any other 20 something girl of the 21st century, I adore Fall. I always have, though, since I can remember fall has been my favorite season. Not only does the cooler temps mean I can break out all my scarves and boots and sweaters jackets and whatnot, but it also means BYE BYE FRUIT FLIES HOLLAAAA.
Anyway, today Col and I started our day with a curried tofu scramble and Slate’s Cultural Gabfest, and then went shopping at the Salvo for warm clothes and picture frames, then when he went to do the sunday football thang, I took a run downtown and it was fucking GORGEOUS. Another reason I love the fall, it is great for running! It’s less sweaty and I feel as if I have more stamina, plus I’m not too bundled or freezing.
After I ran, I spent the afternoon cooking for sunday dinner and for my upcoming week. For sunday din I made my famous/favorite butternut squash soup and a banana avocado chocolate mousse for dessert. I made quinoa, hummus, spinach, and veggie mason jar salads for two days of lunch for the upcoming week, along with two servings of my carrot orange ginger juice to take to work this week!
After a massage from the sweetest guy on the planet and a nice stroll around the neighborhood post-soup, we’re having mousse in bed and watching office reruns on netflix to end our sunday.
I couldn’t have asked for a better day! Recipes for the soup, juice, and salad jars to come this week ya’ll.
xoxo, gossip girl. jk. Just me.
