Hello Friday! This week was a slow and uneventful one. So ready for the weekend! How about you? I am just craving those weekend mornings of mine. Slow easy mornings of some nice core work, pancakes, blogging, and just relaxing in my bed for as long as possible. And again, I plan on getting non-school work done. I had a pretty easy week in school with a lot of down time so all that work is over and done with, but now I need time to focus on the other things! Although I do have to take 10 conceptual photographs and 20 photos of my concentration for my AP photography class. Not fun...At least I have tons of food photos to use for my concentration, but conceptual...I have now idea. Eh, whatever, I always end up figuring something out 😉
This week wasn't all boring though. I got in some really good eats. Things I am loving lately?
Avocado coated protiens! I can not get enough! I am serious, just mash up an avocado and rub it all over your chicken or some white fish! Bake it and taste the amazing creamy baked goodness. The flavor of the avocado just is an explosion! With the chicken I also add smoked paprika, crushed red pepper, onion powder, and parsley. It browns on top and becomes heaven. For the Tilapia I added a Cajan seasoning. So good! Must try! Then we have some lovely Cranberry Orange Pecan Granola. I think this maybe my new favorite flavor 😉 And let's not forget this beauty on the end. There was a sale on Pompeian vinegars at the grocery the other week. I love Pompeian so I scanned the shelves. Then this baby popped out! Roasted Garlic Red Wine Vinegar! The best! I use it every day now on my veggies and salads. It is so good!
One last thing I almost forgot!
Nomato! Yes, that is right. Tomato-free ketchup! It is made for anyone with acid reflux, tomato allergies, on chemotherapy, or have arthritis (you can't have tomatoes with you have arthritis?). Anyway, this stuff is awesome! Check out the awesome ingredients: Organic Carrots, Water, Beets, Organic Onions, Cider Vinegar, Organic Brown Rice Syrup, Cane Sugar, Kosher Salt, Ginger, and Cinnamon. It is awesome and tastes exactly like tomatoes! They also make a "Nomato" Sauce and BBQ Sauce!
And here is my 11th link-up to FTSF (Finish The Sentence Friday)! FTSF is that you are given a sentence each week and you finish it however you want, long or short. This week’s sentence was, “I'm done with school, but..."
