Nothing too exciting about this…

A peach.  Actually, two.  Eaten like so:

I only have two left, and I’m sad.  I’m also still a little hungry, so I think I’m going to go eat a cucumber.

Thanks for all the nice comments today!

I was starting to write this post when I noticed something rather remarkable.  As you know, we went out of town this weekend, which means standard weekend activities like laundry, grocery shopping, and sitting on the couch had to be postponed.  Thus, I am currently wearing what I like to call my Olympics shorts:

Except now it’s totally fine – even, dare I say, trendy – because the Olympics are, in case you live under a rock, going on RIGHT NOW and everyone is very excited.  As am I.  Some of those male swimmers are pretty hot.

So today I proudly wore my trendy blue Olympics shorts while walking Jack around my neighborhood.  A couple people looked at me funny, but I’m sure they were just marveling at how patriotic I am.



Anyway.  Aside from not having to do laundry and other annoying errands, another benefit of going to visit my parents is the food.  Check out these vegetables:

And you already saw the peaches, which I had as part of my afternoon snack:

Along with some of this unbelievable tomato:

Seriously.  Unbelievable.

I am too hot to think

I totally forgot to take a picture of my snack this afternoon.  I blame some sort of heat-induced memory lapse.  To save energy and money, I keep the air conditioner thermostat set to 80º during the day.  This means that it comes on approximately every half hour, or just often enough to keep Jack and I from drowning in our own sweat.  Then at about 5:30, I turn it down to 74º so Chris doesn’t start crying when he walks in the door.

And there you have it.  A day in the life of my air conditioner.

Oh!  But there’s more.  When I realized I forgot to take a picture, I created a reenactment for you of my snack, deconstructed.  I have seen them do this on Iron Chef, only with salads.  Same thing, right?

So we have peaches:

Yeah, I know.  There are some apples in there.  And a lime.  Focus on the peaches, okay?  I had two.


Maybe a cup?

And honey:

Probably a teaspoon.  The peach wasn’t quite ripe.

Okay.  That’s a lie.  It was.  I just like honey.

All in one

Sorry for the late post, but:

I figured I’d spare you an entire post about peaches again.  I know, I’m too good to you.  No need to thank me.  Lucky for you, my peach supply has run dry (Mom! Help!) and so I’ll have to be more creative tomorrow.  And by creative, I mean eat a cucumber, because that’s the only thing we have.

For dinner, I used the remaining zucchini and yellow squash, canned tomatoes, and some pasta to make a little something that looked like this:

We had some of those amazing breadcrumbs leftover, so I added them on top to jazz it up a little.  And now I’m drinking some wine:

As you can see, there is a marathon of The Next Food Network Star on, which, in my opinion, calls for a celebration.

UPDATE:  Chris just called me man-hands because of the peach picture.  I would like to point out that my hands are, in fact, quite feminine and dainty.  Some might even say graceful.

More peaches

I’m sorry.  This is boring, I know.  I will try to make something really fantastic and exciting for dinner.

Also, here’s a puppy:

Give and take

I was hungry today!  I love days like this because it means I can eat more and I clearly really enjoy eating.

Anyway, this afternoon I had two of the peaches my mom gave me.  Here’s one:

These are the best peaches I’ve ever had.  Thank  you mom, you have changed my life.  Seriously.  They are so ripe.  It was heavenly, which is why I had two.

And then, because fruit just makes me hungrier, I had a cucumber, also courtesy of my mom, with some goat cheese:

The goat cheese was all mine.  We almost always have cheese.

For dinner I went to Spring Street Natural, one of my favorite restaurants, with Kate and Betsy.  I had lentil salad and a glass of red wine.  Inspired by their healthy eating habits, I got my salad dressing on the side, and I didn’t even need it.  I’m thinking there might be something to that little trick.

And then it must have been my lucky day because on the way home I randomly found this in my purse:

So I ate it.  You know, because I got the dressing on the side.
