Good morning friends! Hope you are all settling into the new year and back to work or school routines. It is finally drying out here in San Diego after a week of insane rain fall and downpour. I seem to be a jinx and everywhere I have been this year has what locals tell is unseasonable weather. It has been much wetter and cooler than normal here. So much for my plan of having a warm west coast winter! Hoping I can head somewhere next month and have seasonable weather for a change! Thanks for stopping by for the weekly WIAW fun!
I had a few days off and started the day with some coffee before breakfast. Having some quiet time to reflect and start the day has been helping reduce my stress over looking for a new job assignment. This was a cup of pumpkin coffee from the Keurig.
I picked up two bags of the smaller oranges from Costco on Saturday and have been eating them constantly. I carefully inspected the bag and found a couple bags that were not overly ripe. Easy way to maintain my Vitamin C levels 🙂
Lunch was some peanut butter on hole filled bread. The loaf had a few slices with these weird big holes in them.
Afternoon snack of a pumpkin muffin and orange
A few months ago I picked up a container of nutritional yeast and totally forgot about it. I finally opened it this weekend and tried it out. I tasted it on its own and thought it wasn’t bad at all. I don’t know what I was expecting but it wasn’t unappealing. I sprinkled some on this potato for the first time. Might have added a bit too much I think but it tasted ok.
Last night I boiled some carrots and topped it with a smaller serving of the yeast. It was alright. While it isn’t totally cheesy I get how people refer to it as being a substitute. I will definitely keep trying it out. I added maybe a teaspoon and it seemed to go a long way.
Some frozen strawberries to end out my day (and help deplete my freezer stash 🙂 ).
