Melted

26/03/2009

 

I hate running late, absolutely loathe being rushed. And this morning? Exactly that. Fortunately I had a break between classes so I came home and got a shower in, as well as having the time to savour a delicious macchiato.

This may be my new favourite coffee shot…

Anyway, after my English Language/Composition and Francais 4, I lunched.

In attempt to counter the high-strung morning, I had a melty sandwich,

And devoured it, despite trying to feel mellow and smelty. Smelty? Not exactly the word I was looking for, but I’ll take it. A layer of basil tomato sauce, a sliced Quorn filet, yellow bell pepper, pickle and mild Emmental.

To keep it company in the belly I paired it with a salad of sorts – cucumber, tomato, parsley, gala apple, yellow pepper and a few dried cranberries.

I have a new beverage obsession. When I lived in the States it was Pom Tea, (Peach flavour, holla!), and here, its this lightly flavoured carbonated water.

It has 9 plant extracts – ready? Ok, here we go –

1. Acai
2. Hibiscus
3. Birch Leaves
4. Mulberry Leaves
5. Elderberry Flowers
6. Coriander
7. Dandelion
8. Calendula
9. Juniper

 

 

The flavours aren’t over-powering, they’re just present enough to gently touch your tastebuds. Rafraichissant!

After a big of errand running, I hit the yoga mat. It was a pretty good class, but the teacher talked a bit too much of ‘celebrating the differences of bones in your body, in your hands and feet’ and to ‘celebrate the fact that you’re able to do this pose, you’re here, you’re tangible’. I don’t mind centering banter like this, but it was a bit much for me. It was an hour class, and I was starving when I was done.

I came upstairs and ANNIHILATED a beautifully tender mango.

Yeah. I bought two. They’ll probably be gone tomorrow. Hopefully I won’t be as famished when I eat it, so I’ll have more time to take some better photos.

Have a nice day, bloggies!

Scrambled

Nope, still not me.

 

007

My breakfast, of course. With the Financial Times,

011

A slice of toast, Parm, and a glass of Sanguine Orange juice,

014  

Pulpy and tangy. A mug of Earl Grey was also in line to get into my belly,

019

With a small Rusk, getting soggier and lovelier by the second.

A few hours later came a fresh bowl of ‘naner, pineapple and strawberries.

026

Which turned into this;

All thank to the addition of some yogurt, pom seeds, spelt puffs, ground flax and a dollop of cottage cheese.

037

Wait, shh, what is that?! Do you hear it? SHHHH!

Ah, man.
It’s my Econ book. Ughhhh.

Bye bloggies. (:

Toasted

No, It’s not me that’s toasted… Today, anyway.

KIDDING!

Woke up this morning to a nice mug of Guatemala blend and a Krisproll,

Then got cracking away on my studies. Fortunately I didn’t have any classes today, so a leisurely review of my AP materials was in order. Just the way I like it.

After I’d had enough of MPS, the Multiplier, Ben Bernanke and other Macroeconomic activities, I made perhaps the most wonderful food ever.

Toasted 032

Toast.

With St. Dalfour wild blueberry preserves,

Toasted 026

It’s rich, with just a touch of sweetness. I absolutely love how the berries stain everything they touch. When I’m not wearing white, of course.

Toasted 029

See how it just seeps into the towel? That dollop wasn’t on there for more than a few seconds. Beautiful.

Toasted 033

One simply nutty, the other covered in a lovely layer of said preserves.

With a spot of Earl Grey,

Who came together with the simple slice to harmonize,

Toasted 039

Mmm. Grudgingly I got back to Macro, but then was distracted by my super model of a dog, enjoying the lake breeze in the balcony –

She’s got the ‘I’m-too-beautiful-to-look-at-the-camera-directly” look down, don’t-cha think?
