Day 15, Wednesday: A Day in the life (include photos from throughout your typical day).
Sometime between 7:30 – 8:15am – Wake up.
Make and drink coffee, read, do some cleaning. Sometimes I blog in the morning (like today).
This coffee has ground cardamom in it, Columbian-style. I went to Juan Valdez cafe a couple weeks ago and discovered this delicious trick.
If I have time, maybe I make lunch or do some food prepping. This morning I was up around 6:30, which is earlier than normal. I was able to make 2 different soups based on recipes in the Vegan with a Vengeance cookbook (carrot soup and butternut squash soup).
^^ Roasted Butternut Squash Soup – had it for breakfast! ^^
^^ Blending the carrot soup ^^
(Recipes for both to come.)

And now for the rest of our Williamsburg trip recap…
- We found a bed and breakfast using BedandBreakfast.com: The Williamsburg Manor. The place was amazing. I would definitely recommend it and we will certainly be back. The owner, Laura, was attentive and helpful. The innkeeper (the woman who cleaned and made our breakfasts), Stephanie, was also great. She gave us so many good recommendations for places to go and things to see.
- After settling in, we went out to dinner at the Blue Talon Bistro. I got the Nicoise Salad, Bobby got the Hamburger, and we split a “side” of grilled cheese. The side was huge though – we couldn’t finish it together. I grabbed a gigantic cookie on the way out. It was some kind of chocolate-nut thing and it was incredible. Too buttery for Bobby, but not for me.

Instead of another macrobiotics post, I thought I might share what I was up to this weekend. I am so glad springtime is finally around the corner.
Friday night I was able to leave work by 6pm. I meandered home and cooked up some sweet potato gnocchi (Trader Joe’s) for myself. Bobby ended up having to work late so I was on my own. I just played around with a couple of website ideas I’ve been thinking of… overall a relaxing evening. I also read The Help (my current book). It’s really great; I definitely recommend it. I have not seen the movie yet but I will when I finish the novel.
