Yesterday I got to meet one of my favorite bloggers, Jenna (Eat, Live, Run):
I need a haircut, ick. Jenna’s in the last stages of interviewing for A Really Goode Job for Murphy-Good Winery. Good luck Jenna! Bobby and I both went to her wine tasting and we walked away with a delicious bottle of white (which I normally don’t like) – The Fume (Sauvignon Blanc). Here’s what they say about it: “The 2008 vintage boasts flavors and aromas of citrus and tropical fruits expressed over a bright, yet rich mouthfeel.” It sure tasted good to me 😀
We tried a whole bunch of different wines, and while our favorite was actually a red (Terra a Lago – Cabernet Sauvignon), we couldn’t justify spending $45 on a bottle of wine. The Fume was only $12.50, and really awesome. Bobby was tipsy by the end, so I got to drive home.
Oh, boy. There was traffic on the highway and we got rear-ended (just a few scratches, but there were actually 2 other cars involved so we all had to pull over and exchange information, and it took a while). We were the front car so insurance should cover it and it was NOT my fault in the least. The guy in front of me slammed on his brakes, so I braked too and stopped, and the person behind me stopped in time, but the person behind HIM hit him and shoved him into me. Blah.
And then I got pulled over for speeding. And Bobby doesn’t have his registration in the car. But I was very sweet and flustered and told the officer about getting rear ended and he just let us go with a warning. California cops are much nicer than any others I’ve met – when I lived in New Jersey and New York I had several speeding tickets and was never let off with a warning.
Before the eventful day started, we had breakfast. My breakfast for the last few days (since Saturday) has been tons and tons of fruit (watermelon and cantaloupe). Unlimited fruit for breakfast is really great. I also wanted to share Bobby’s well-combined meal:
A whole wheat bagel (starch) with mustard (neutral) and avocado (combines with starch!)… and sesame seeds (this does not combine well, but he wouldn’t leave them off). I love how you don’t have to go crazy with the raw stuff – you can do something as simple as properly combining a bagel with avocado and it works. It’s so easy to incorporate food combining.
Speaking of amazingly combined meals, I had the same thing for dinner on Saturday and Sunday nights…
A humongous salad from chipotle. This is:
- extra lettuce
- black beans
- extra fajita veggies
- extra red salsa
- extra corn salsa
- a ton of guac, which I finished both times!!
The ladies making my salad all commented on how huge it was. I just smiled 🙂 After dinner I have been eating Ezekiel bread with honey (and dark chocolate).
On Saturday I got a package from the lovely Justine (I won her contest) – oat bran and peanut butter. I got Artisana raw coconut butter from her the other day as well (what great timing). Thanks, girl!
Check out Clare’s chayote creation – she tried it after seeing it on my blog the other week.
I haven’t mentioned this yet, but I got a job teaching 2 classes for 4 weeks (2 hours/day for each class) – Alebra 2/Trigonometry and Geometry. They start today, and I hope it’ll be fun. My SAT teaching ended on Saturday.
If you got through this monster of a post I applaud you – and I hope you’re having a great Monday.
