I really thought I would be able to get back into a routine but apparently that was asking for too much. IrregularGirlFTW.
If I still used AIM, that would be my screenname.
Fun Fact: I made my first screenname ever in 3rd grade (I think) and it was KerSpice89. Take a wild guess where that came from 😀
Moving on. Let’s get some photos up in this joint, shall we?
Max is a mountain goat and proceeded to rip the leaves off this bush for ten minutes straight. Look how happy he looks though!
I’ve been getting back into a baking groove.
Oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies! I tweaked the recipe a considerable amount, however. This includes the addition of flax seed, taking out the recommended 1/2 of granulated sugar entirely and using apple sauce instead of butter. You can’t taste the difference, I promise!
Foreshadowing moment: Tomorrow’s post, hopefully, will be about my the failure mini-doughnuts I made today. Let’s just say that after a while my doughy adventure turned into a game of throwing whatever I could think of into the mix just so they would taste at least remotely decent.
I’ve been making my way around and trying to do that whole “celebrating graduation” thing.
2:00 diner run with Liz. This is a common occurance and very typical of us. She asked me to take a picture of her enjoying the smell of her taylor ham sandwich. HA.
There’s also been a bunch of awesomely amazing graduation parties. I WOULD post pictures of said parties/said party food stuffs but I have some bad news to share with everyone.
My camera is gone.
I actually don’t really want to talk about it that much. What I will say is that I have no idea where it is and have torn my entire life apart trying to find it. I’ve been legit depressed about it and don’t really have the money to buy a new one. Le sigh.
So as of now, iTouch camera is where it’s at until further notice. The pictures aren’t too shabby and I’m grateful that I still have something to document my life with.
I mean, what would I do if I couldn’t document the act of a nice husband holding his wife’s handbag. Yeah, nope. It’s his purse. At least it matches his outfit!
Random watermelon interval.
This is Theodore. He was my company in the backseat during the trip to the Poconos on Memorial Day. Not too talkative though; he wanted to sleep the whole time. It’s OK though because that trip was ballin’ and a three-quarters 😀
I need to get this out before I go any further. This has become the summer of burgers.
Oooh boy, I certainly am a creepy kind of girl now aren’t I? And yes, Meat Beef will be forever where it’s at.
Something in my brain has snapped. It’s been burgers nonstop. I complained about not getting one and even implied (via Facebook) that violence would be inevidable if my desire was not fulfilled.
I finally did get my burger. However, instead of taking the craving away, it’s still here! Summer Meat Beef Bonanza 2011 has officially begun. I’m going to count and photograph every burger I eat this summer, it’s happening.
#1: Plain burger topped with a TON of fresh salsa that my aunt had made. On the side was some beans (I may or may not love beans…) and some pasta salad which I ended up only eating the veggies out of.
#2: Swiss cheeseburger with mushrooms, ketchup and hummus on a multigrain thin bread.
#3: Cheeseburger from a good ole’ fashioned diner.
This one had a special addition though……
Quick plug-in advertisement right hur: EPICMEALTIME. I have fallen in love with this Youtube channel and am not ashamed. It’s basically the most extreme food porn you’re ever going to see and it will excite you and probably make you feel kind of queasy at the same time. Those offended by fast food, bacon overloads, Jack Daniels, cursing and closeups of men shoving their faces in food should NOT watch it. I recommend it either way though.
Also, I want my nickname to be MusclesGlasses…. just saying 😀
Backtracking now, chances are I’m NOT going to be eaten just burgers all summer. In retrospect, the diner one was the odd man out. The others, I know for a fact, were at least 90% lean ground beef and I kept them pretty simple and balanced them out with other nutritionally positive foods. Burgers are awesome and should not be feared, as I learned from a certain blogger boy!
Again, another fairly weak entry on my behalf. The schedule needs to be established and a soon everything will fall into place because I’ve trained myself to be optimistic like that. Word up.
I leave thee with Otis and pancakes.
The ones left were homemade by Mr. & Mrs. Griffing, after I drunkenly crashed in their guest room, and topped with banana, coconut and walnuts. The ones on the right are from my first trip EVER to Cracker Barrel. They’re multi-grain and granola and were OHMYCASTAKETHEWHEEL good. No need for that giant globby of butter, that’s for sure!
Until tomorrow my loves. I’ll be here, I promise ❤
What was YOUR first screenname? Throw ’em out there despite how embarassing they may be. We’ve alllllll done it!
