I’m lazy when I’m lovin’, I’m lazy when I play

I can only think of two things that were lazier than Bobby and I were today.

Our two fats cats. (Cous and Bo = Couscous and Kabocha.) Oops, look at those dirty socks on the floor.

I did actually manage to give Bobby a haircut, so maybe the day wasn’t so unproductive after all. He’s playing some xbox game here. It has something to do with Japan. Sometimes I “help” him play by watching out for the red dots (those are the enemies) and pointing excitedly. I think I did a good job on the hair; this was my second time cutting it for him.

I also did an easy walk on the treadmill tonight (1.8 miles, 3% incline) while Bobby ran and lifted. When we came back inside I did some nice stretching exercises inspired by Diane von Furstenberg (more on that later).

For dinner I had my two favorite foods: fluffy waffles* with butter and real maple syrup, and kabocha*. The recipe for the waffles is HERE. I made it fattier by using egg yolks instead of applesauce and kefir instead of milk. Bobby did his own thing and went for rice and chicken. I like breakfast for dinner.

I just steamed the kabocha and stuck it in the freezer to cool. All together now.

With these goodies, I had a bit of fluffy bread* that Bobby bought yesterday. There were severalΒ persimmons afterwards.* Did you know they are especially delicious with almond butter? Try it.

Did you have a lazy Sunday?

*Edited to add (on 6/14/2011): Holy crap what a carby dinner! No wonder at the time I was feeling a little mushy. This was from back in the days when I still wasn’t eating as much fat and protein as I should have been (though, had you asked me, I would have said I was eating plenty of fats). As you can see, I had carby munchies – the carbolicious dinner only enhanced my cravings for starchy, sugary things, which is why I followed up this large meal with more bread (starch) and more fruit (sugar).

    I love it that you and Bobby often have separate dinners πŸ™‚ Matt and I are doing that more and more and I feel a bit weird for it, but it seems quite common in blogworld πŸ™‚

    Lazy days are SO necessary sometimes. My Sunday was pretty lazy as well and I couldn’t have been happier πŸ™‚ I am a big fan of brinner too- the waffles look like they turned out awesome. Hope your Monday goes well.

    What game is he playing? My boyfriend is addicted to his xbox. I am glad you had a lazy Sunday that’s what Sundays are for!

    So I can eat the skin of the kobacha??

    I am going to add it to my spinach spaghetti squash lasagna for one of my lunches this week – my plan is to steam it first, let it cook then assemble. Do you think it will work??

    Love your Bobby-Cut and I “help” too on Xbox.

    watch your 9 O’Clock!
    Left, LEFT, no your other Left.
    then I leave.
    I actually HAVE been playing a tiny bit. it’s fun but it’s CRAZY! I’d rather knit
    and since you asked NO…it was a nutzy but awesome sunday…I wouldn’t describe it as LAZY at all. boo

    BUT I will go and look up that waffle recipe. I made some a few weeks back and they were NOT fluffy!

    Happy Monday

    I looove persimmons! I have them everyday while I can πŸ™‚

    I usually spend a big portion of my day at church on Sundays, so a lazy Sunday is not common, but lazy Saturdays on the other hand…

    Cats are adorable. Love being lazy on Sundays. I actually got to sit down and watch a movie with some wine! The first movie I have seen in over a month. Though I did so some work while watching it. πŸ™‚

    Hi Maggie! I love lazy Sunday’s too and there is nothing more comforting than breakfast for dinner. I love my waffles fluffy too, so yours sounds right up my alley! Real maple syrup is definitely the way to go!!

    Thanks for sharing the idea on persimmons and almond butter!! That’s a fantastic idea, and I can imagine it being OH so delicious! Now i have to get me some persimmon. πŸ™‚
