What’s your morning routine like?
Are you a snooze button smasher? A rise with the sun yogi? A running-out-the-door last minute mismatched frenzied mess?
I like to keep things consistent with the biggest coffee I can get my hands on and a mental “to-do” list. Although an occasional “to-don’t” list thrown in there when i’m feeling wild – er, needing restriction from getting wild could be a good idea, too.
To do: billsbillsbills – pay em, forward mail, smile at people, go to the… gym (i’m mentally screaming about this part already).
To don’t: eat like a 5 year-old, yell like a 2 year-old, drink like a 21 year-old.
To don’t lists are no fun.
Alas, I set myself a little list of to-don’ts before I set my trouble tappin’ toes out the door today:
Don’t raid the candy drawer the minute you get to work.
Don’t buy ice cream and cookies for lunch and convince yourself you just got a whopping amount of dairy.
Don’t convince Eddie to bring you cheesecake on his way home.
I set myself up for failure with that list: the sugar totally won!
Remember swedish fish?! I dove back into a deep cave of love with those chewy red wonders today.
Whatevs. I’m not sweating it!
Creamy eggplant swooped in and saved the day – er night – with it’s vibrant flavors and brilliant ingredients.
I found this light on the hips, heavy in flavor recipe over at Deb’s blog, and like everything she ever posts – I’ll be making it over and over again.
A glass of white wine and al fresco dining makes this magnificent meal a dinner dreamland!
Here’s the link to her post and the recipe!
