I was doing so good at commenting on your comments, and I’ve gotten away from that. I’m working on getting a system down because I’d rather email you my response than respond on my blog. Because I understand you don’t necessarily check back on old posts, or do you? I want to connect more and get some “dialogue” going, so I am here, I do want to talk so keep up the commenting! It is much appreciated 🙂
Averie once again your recipe turned out wonderfully! These are so amazingly sweet, easy to make and delicious. I decreased the amount of brown sugar and used ground oats instead of ground flax (I didn’t have any), but other than that I followed Averie’s original recipe. They were pretty thin “muffins” — mine turned out more cookie like with a really gooey center 🙂
Next: I wanted to bring up “the letter” I received from a Bragg rep. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the supportive comments! I tell myself that “I don’t care what people think of me” – but that isn’t true. I do care. I want to show myself in the best possible light and I want to be a good example and role model. That letter from Bragg tore me down and I was feeling really low. But thanks to YOU and the tons of comments I received I feel so much better and more confident in my food choices and in my blog in general. So thank you, thank you, thank you! Onto something a bit more fun:
Ah glorious POM juice! Thanks Ryan for contacting me and for sending me this wonderful juice! I really really wanted a POM apron too, but I guess they couldn’t find one for me (believe me, I asked!) POM juice is 100% authentic pomegranate juice. I don’t drink much juice on its own, but I like to dilute it with seltzer for a lovely refreshing mocktail or with some other ingredients to make an actual cocktail 🙂
The perfect place to drink a cocktail mocktail? In front of the TV of course 🙂 Jason and I are about to watch this:
After seeing Inception I really wanted to rewatch Memento — they were both directed by Christopher Nolan (who also directed Batman Begins and Batman Forever).
Plans for the weekend:
-Wedding Saturday night
–Work on my Sept goals: church on Sunday and lots of reading
-Run 6 miles Saturday, TurboFire on Sunday, TurboFire/FBB Strength Monday
-Relax, unwind and maybe (just maybe) do a bit of cleaning around the house
I think we all care what people think to some extent no matter how much we claim we don’t. I mean, nobody likes to be judged and it’s infuriating when we’re judged by people who don’t even know us. But oh well, some people just need filters..like dog muzzles. 😛 Maybe that would help.
My weekend plans involve spending time with my parents and getting a new refrigerator. haha, mine kinda rumbles and leaks a little…
Sounds like you have a full weekend ahead- have fun! 😀
I had to watch “Memento” like three times before I felt that I actually got the movie. It was kind of sad, in my opinion Christopher Nolan is a good director, though the ending of “Inception” drove me crazy!
love memento! really should watch it again. brilliant movie.
my weekend plans: work! (i work retail so weekends = more like a weekday feeling for me). bake cookies tonight! 🙂 cleaned last night so that task is done!
i love to plan and revise goals at the beginning of september, too. it really feels like a time of rejuvenation!
enjoy the wedding!
Curious to know how you guys like “Memento”! I hadn’t heard of it but it looks great.
Wait til you have kids and you all get to watch things like “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” instead of the movies you and Jason would much rather watch. LOL! 😛 Honestly, though, some of the kid movies are really fun to watch.
Have wondered about that Pom Wonderful juice. The produce section of my regular grocery store always has a full stock. Your mocktail looks delightful, indeed!!
I got some POM recently also – YUM I totally mix it with club soda… and SOMETIMES there’s vodka in there too… 😉
I love that apron.
I’m glad you are feeling better about that letter. I have to say, it really upset ME also… like I said I use Bragg products quite often, but I have mixed feelings now. I’m sure they’d have the same response to MY blog… gaah, whatever.
Those muffins look great – I thought maybe you used a “muffin top” pan because they were short… I have always wanted one of those – the top is the best part, and it’s just enough muffin! 🙂
Hey Holly so glad you liked the muffins!!!! Yes, b/c they are vegan and so no eggs AND no gluten, so nothing to truly “fluff” them up, they will remain more dense and flat but that’s ok for us 🙂 Glad they worked for you too and that you enjoyed them and thanks for the lovely linkbacks!
As for comments…I never, rarely! check back to a blog’s old posts. If i visit 25 to 50 blogs a day, there is no way i can actually go back TWICE to the same blog unless I a. love the blogger or happened to ask/say something that I thought would b. necessitate a response. But i also try not to ask questions in comment fields b/c that obligates the blogger to do even more work…and i know what that’s like answering 50 questions that were in the form of comments.
Ok rambling. haha!
Have a super weekend hon and glad you liked the muffies! Make the blueberry streusel ones next 🙂
i’ve never seen Memento, but i heard it was really good! best movie i’ve seen recently would have to be Inception (haha…it’s the only movie i’ve seen recently.) i was pretty impressed with myself: i actually followed about 90% of it 🙂 usually my mind wanders (i have attention span issues) but this one kept me glued to the screen.
Those muffins look delicious! I have trouble resisting any baked good with a gooey center. As far as the Braggs letter is concerned – don’t worry about it. If anyone were as strict with their eating philosophies as the Braggs people, life would be a bore. I love reading your blog because you make healthy living and experimenting with eating fun! Keep up the great work;)
[…] Oh yes, this is Angela’s Breakfast Pizza. I made a Fruit Pizza a few weeks ago, but I loved Angela’s use of peanut butter as the top drizzle! I changed up a few things: I used applesauce instead of earth balance (or butter) in the crust, and instead of jam I used a mashed banana plus a few tablespoons of POM juice. Remember all that POM juice I got last week? […]
