Last night was weird!
First, Abe made dinner – which was strange because HE was the one who had been working + sick with a cold all day, not me!
I had specific instructions – fry an egg sunny side up, bake the Trader Joe’s Potato Latkes
Served over a bed of mache + shredded carrots tossed in Meyer Lemon juice
The last dollop of simple guac
Hot sauce, s + p
Runny yolk + greasy crunchy potato is the perfect salad dressing
We also split the last few bites of Abe’s leftover Honey Acorn Squash and Spinach
Since I ate nothing but gluten-free baked goods earlier I munched on an organic Ambrosia for dessert
We had plans to attend an art opening, but as we drove by the gallery it looked way too crowded. So we went to Whole Foods instead – a hot Friday night!!!
Abe wanted to pick up a tub of hummus and I insisted he should just make it at home, since we had all the ingredients: chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic powder, and salt.
Poor hubby wound up slicing his finger pretty bad. I put the mean immersion blender away and finished the rest of the dip by hand, producing a very chunky (almost reminiscent of tuna fish?!) texture.
Eaten with celery
As if nursing my ill and injured husband wasn’t out-of-the-ordinary enough, I saw a mouse!!!
If you follow me on twitter you know I spotted it a few nights ago. I was hoping Julius had scared it off, but we’ve been ready with a few cruelty free mousetraps.
Tahini came in handy – we had just picked up peanut butter at Whole Foods, but I wasn’t wasting a dab of Justin’s, even if it was on sale!
Julius is NO help. I thought Jack Russell Terriers were supposed to be great at catching mice, but he hasn’t noticed it either time – and now he keeps setting off the traps!
The bizarre evening events made me peckish
I could’ve easily reached for another couple handfuls of Pumpernickel Pretzels but I knew that would be too much for my tummy. Whenever I snack before bedtime I’m never hungry til late the next day, and we’ve got breakfast plans with friends this morning.
So I sipped on a cup of Stripped Down Miso Soup to slow things down/quell the salt craving.
Hoping for a Super Sane Saturday….
Best band aid for fingers?
Anyone ever have luck with those humane mouse traps?
