Thursday is such a tease.
So close to Friday, but it’s not Friday. I always get so excited for the weekend and then remember that I still have one day to go.
But good food makes up for it, I guess.
I had one of my new favorites: hummus on a sweet potato.
Yuh-um. Have you tried this yet? The sugary, mushy potato is so good with super creamy and garlicky hummus.
Like peas in a pod! Or pb&j. They should always be together.
I also had an old favorite on my salad today.
Sunflower seeds! I haven’t had sunflower seeds in years, probably. And that is too long to go without.
I was seriously addicted to sunflower seeds one summer. I remember having my mom buy those big bags of the sunflower seeds still in the shell so I could have them for snacks. There were a few times I sat on the floor in our den, bag by my side and bowl in my lap, eating my way through the bag in just a few days. My lips and fingers would hurt so bad from the salt and have that I-sat-in-the-hot tub-too-long pruney look, but I just didn’t care. So. addicting.
They’re much more fun to eat out of the shell, but still delicious on a salad.
They’re the perfect little salty addition to my romaine, carrots, red onion, and cilantro.
I’ve got some puppy-related errands to run at lunch today:
Somebody keeps destroying her toys and now has nothing to play with.
And we can’t have that.
