One day late!
Meant to post yesterday–but didn’t feel like it
Cards for my parents! I realized yesterday morning, as I was drawing the card on the left, that I can only draw profiles…good thing I don’t plan on making a living off being an artist!
Oatmeal #140: Christmas Oatmeal
Playing with food at its finest 😄
- glutinous rice balls, wheatberries, 0.25 of a small candy cane, sweet walnut soup, milk
Mom made the dough, but I rolled the rice balls myself! Took me an hour to finish rolling out the entire dough–but I’d rather be doing that than my homework!
Christmas eve ice wine:
In a chinese tea cup! My family is classy 😀
Buttered corn, stuffing, turkey + gravy, scallopped potatoes & yams, rice + gravy
Wish I could eat like this everyday!
Is anyone actually brave enough to go Boxing Day shopping? 😄

The package my parents sent me = best thing so far this semester. 😀
The last meal…

- cocoa, longans, milk, walnuts, flax, goji berries
+ mint tea
I wanted coffee but I didn’t think I need to be any more agitated 😛
Free Kashi bars from the cafeteria! Got the coupon in the mail–I also got a free coffee mug! This is why living in residence is awesome 😀
Lunch, aka, consolation meal
Pumpkin & tuna sandwich, yogurt parfait from the tuck shop~
Surprisingly, I was full on this…and it didn’t really even look like much~weird.
pasta salad + beans, cottage cheese + cheerios + PB, pineapple, chocolate chip cookie

Birthday card for my friend, Tina–happy birthday dude!
[I like rats 😀 ]
I basically threw in the dessert mom made from the night before into my oats. So combining two of my favorite things seemed fitting for the 100th oatmeal experiment!
- 0.33 cup oats
- 0.25 cup water
- 0.5 cup adzuki bean & lotus seed dessert
- 9 glutinous rice balls
- 0.25 cup milk
- 6 almonds
For some reason, the almonds make me think of squirrels 😛 It looks so forest-y with the green bowl!
Oatmeal #101: Chocolate Matcha Smoothie
The partay continues after my 49 minute run [couldn’t quite make it to 50 after going up a huge hill 😛 ]
This smoothie was the only reason I only had 0.33 cup of oatmeal this morning–didn’t want no overdosin’!
- 1 cup boiled water
- 1 tsp matcha powder
- 0.25 cup soy milk
- 2 tbsp quick oats
- 1 tbsp chocolate chips
I dissolved the matcha powder in boiled water and let that sit for about…half an hour? And then I blended everything else together–it was a great way to make drinking tea fun! [I’m not really a tea person 😛 ]
I actually ended up with a bigger cup than I was expecting–oh well! 😀
Needed either some sugar or more chocolate~not quite sweet enough, but it was pleasantly mild with a very prominent green tea taste–so no complaints there!
2 more days til I leave for California! [I think after this trip, I’m going to have to stop spending $$$ for the next 5 years…]
