Survey of 8’s & more salads & earth love

Lots of green today! (Happy Earth Day!) To celebrate I had another green breakfast (can this count as my salad?  Just kidding…):



  • green tea
  • 2/3 cup oat bran + ~2 cups water
  • 2-3 tablespoons raisins
  • vanilla
  • 2 cups spinach blended in @ the end


My real salad was this:



  • base: head of romaine
  • toppings: steamed kabocha
  • protein: parmesan
  • dressing: annie’s lite gingerly vinaigrette

    Couscous…what a cool name for a cat!
    Do you remember a commercial that aired about 10 years ago. It was trying to promote couscous – playing it up as the new potato. It stuck with me, because of a line where a woman tells her lazy husband in exasperation, “You’re such a couch couscous!”

    Green tea in your oats sounds majorly adventurous to me! I seriously wish I was endowed with music talent too. In my craziest dreams, I’d probably want to be a fantastically good cellist or violinist or maybe a singing sensation on Broadway. In my dreams… 😛

    I am still eternally grateful to you for introducing me to the wonder that is OAT BRAN. I want to try the spinach version!

    I want to learn more languages. English and French can get me around almost anywhere, but I want to learn a language that has a different alphabet. Like Japanese!

    I like your addition of greentea to your oat bran! have you ever tried adding green tea POWDER? it’s awesome! esp with a bit of milk!

    I’m still working up the courage to try those green oats 😉
    Ugh..I’m kind of over Grey’s lately too. I wonder if they’re going to write Merideth’s (Ellen Pompeo’s) pregnancy into the storyline?

    I have yet to do green oats but I want to! I love the idea of blending the raisins in. I’ll have to give that one a try.

    And a salad topped with kabocha wins my heart.
