Even though it was a 4 day workweek for me, I am in desperate need of a weekend! I have been sleeping terrible – staying up too late, not getting restful sleep and waking up super groggy. Ugh. This week I plan to relax and get enough rest each night and gear up for the coming week.
It is nice to know that I’m not the only who dreads certain social situations. If I don’t know anyone (or barely know anyone) I am a nervous wreck and I have to honestly force myself to go. I am learning to watch my breathing, to try to relax but to do my best. That is all I can do!
On that same note, I was supposed to meet someone new last night. My sister K has a boyfriend that I haven’t had a chance to meet yet. They were supposed to stop by our house – But K’s BF was too intimidated sick so they had to cancel. I made us a little snack to break the ice, but since they didn’t come over, we saved it for breakfast:
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?
It definitely added some sweetness to the mashed banana (which was sweet enough!) Then I drizzled the top of the pizza with this:
Oh Justin, you make everything taste so lovely.
Have I annoyed you yet with a million pics of this pizza? Too bad. It was so good. And I also only made ½ her recipe – a personal pizza if you will 🙂
Jason brought me some gifts:
OK they were free from his work, but I can’t wait to dig into them. Natural Medicines has all sort s of info on different herbs/supplements/natural remedies:
Have you heard of any of these? As I flipped through, some looked familiar, but so many sounded very interesting. And the Diet Manual has a ton of info on meal planning, nutrition, food allergies, different diseases and disorders, etc.
- Any fun plans for the weekend? I am helping my parents clean out their basement and laundry room – do not expect any pictures 🙂
- How do you break the ice with someone new? I usually end up making really bad jokes, avoiding eye contact, crossing my arms, and staring at the floor. I wish I was kidding, but I’m not! I do like to have people over to my house – that way I feel most comfortable, and I can prepare something to eat/snack.
- What sort of vitamins/supplements do you take on a regular basis? I have not been good lately, but normally I take a multivitamin, calcium supplement and fish oil supplement.
