Randoms – Food Rotations & My Reading List
Random #1: Starbucks morning
Oops… I spilled my coffee in my [new] truck this morning. Oh yeah, and then I realized I left my breakfast sitting on my counter at home.
I’m so glad Starbucks is there for my rescue!
Random #2: Pathetic Dog
Is this one of the most pathetic dog faces ever?
She has gotten used to getting roast beef in the morning (when I give her her Benadryl, I have to hide it in there) and this morning she didnt get any so she was pouting.
It’s pretty pathetic, but not quite as pathetic as this dog.
That is Torrance’s dad’s dog… in a cone…again. In the two years he has had her, she has been in a cone about 10 times because she is the most reckless/clumsiness dog ever.
Random #3: Food rotation
I know I have mentioned before how I go through phases with my food and rotate stuff in and out.
Well After a year off, these have made it back into my snack repertoire.
I used to be obsessed with these things, and then as usual, after eating them for a month straight, got sick of them.
Some other foods that have made it back into my rotation:
- wheat thins (to eat with my cheese)
- egg salad
- rice (since I found a solution for not being able to cook it)
I have noticed recently that I have rotated out Luna bars and egg n jelly sandwiches. I guess I needed a break from them! They’ll be back.
Random #4: Hiking
I have been dying to do some hiking. There are so many amazing places around here that offer great trails with waterfalls, etc. I have been wanting to go before it gets too hot so we can bring Kona too.
Anyway, I am majorly looking forward to it and hoping the weather will cooperate (i.e. no thunderstorms or rain) this weekend.
Random #5: Upcoming reading list
For some reason I havent been able to sit down and read for a while but there is quite the arsenal of books sitting on my shelf that I have purchased and am dying to read. Summertime will be perfect for this, sitting out by the pool and such. So here is what I have waiting for me:
First book, I still need to finish my current Jen Lancaster (my most favorite author!) book that I’m reading because partway through is when I just stopped being in the reading mood. Also, I am a few books behind now since she is pumping them out like crazy now. Must read!
Next up will be Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential.
I read the first few (short) chapters and I’m in love. I like him a lot anyway (he is a chef, by the way), but I am attracted to this book because it really talks about working in the restaurant and all the stuff that goes on behind the scenes and after the restaurant is closed and the lifestyle. If you havent read my foodie section on the blog already, my parents owned a restaurant while I was growing up so I saw a lot of….interesting stuff – it is quite a lifestyle to say the least. So this book is super interesting to me because it is relatable.
After that will be No One Here Gets Out Alive the biography (well, one of many) of Jim Morrison from the band The Doors.
I have mentioned before my love for old/classic rock – but I really love reading old rockstar’s biographies. They are so interesting and scandalous and emotional and unbelievable. His I think will be especially interesting because he had a little extra dose of crazy. (If you ever watch the movie “The Doors” you will see he is a loon).
And lastly (and probably least haha), the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.
I know, I know…. I am definitely giving into the hype on this one. I’m not a romance novel steamy book kind of person but I cant help be attracted to the somewhat raunchiness of the story line for this. It has had a lot of mixed reviews, so the only way to see what it’s all about is read it myself right?!
Have a fabulous day… but first – tell me:
- Ever read any of the books above? Favorite book genre?
My fav genre is biography or memoir type stuff – true stories.
- What is a book that is on your current “want to read” list?
- What foods have you recently rotated in and/or out of your usual rotation?
- When you go hiking, if it is moderate (not too hard, but not super easy) do you wear a sports bra??
