One day late!

Meant to post yesterday–but didn’t feel like it :mrgreen:

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!

Anywhoo–oatmeal!

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! :mrgreen:

Christmas eve ice wine:

In a chinese tea cup! My family is classy 😀

Christmas dinner!

x 2

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? 😄

I wanted coffee but I didn’t think I need to be any more agitated 😛

Pre-midterm snack:

Lunch, aka, consolation meal

 

Pumpkin & tuna sandwich, yogurt parfait from the tuck shop~

Dinner:

 

Surprisingly, I was full on this…and it didn’t really even look like much~weird.

Heheh.

Birthday card for my friend, Tina–happy birthday dude!

[I like rats 😀 ]

Yesterday!
Oatmeal #100

oatmeal-aug26_08

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!

Post-run snack
Oatmeal #101: Chocolate Matcha Smoothie

oatmeal-aug26_08 (2)

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’! :mrgreen:

  • 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…]
