Satisfying Summer Stuff

Long time no talk blog! I feel bad because I haven’t even been busy – just kind of lazy. πŸ™‚ But still productive… kind of.

Summer funnies: TAN lines, summer expectations vs. reality, more tan stuff, and relatable minions.

And… back to the food. A quesadilla that wouldn’t fold, topped with egg, broccoli, cheese, and salsa.

Cinnamon bun muffins were made and enjoyed. These paleo muffins were made with a whole cup of almond flour, maple syrup instead of sugar, and other goodies.

Any guesses what this is? Hmm…

Fried eggs have been SO “in” recently. I love them with avocado toast and veggies.

Baked oatmeal with berries, yogurt, and nut butter. Chocolate baked oatmeal is so good.

Pancakes that failed to flip, made with ricotta and oats, topped with smashed banana and nut butter.

My roomie took this photo, and all I can say is that this chocolate mug cake looks SEDUCTIVE. Is there another way to describe this photo?

Pear baked oatmeal, using my normal banana baked oatmeal recipe but swapping mashed banana for a cubed pear. Yummy.

Roomie made tuna melts in her special tuna-melt panini press. These look so crispy and perfect!

Pear pancakes were enjoyed another morning.

I also made fried rice one day! Egg on top, this time, rather than scrambled in.

And I baked chocolate banana brownie cake squares! They were freaking delicious, as usual. A little too yummy, because the three of us finished 16 servings in 2 days.

Broccoli-cheddar frittata with buttered flax buns.

Baked garlic-herb salmon, potatoes, and veggies! I had seconds and thirds of this meal and ended up so full that I could barely stand. :O

Baked banana oatmeal, which you’ve seen about 12093 times already.

Pear oats made on the stovetop with a side of yogurt, granola, and banana bread.

More pancakes, this time topped with banana and served with yummy yogurt and granola.

Lebanese food at Arabesque Cafe was enjoyed last night! I had the vegetarian plate which came with deep-fried zucchini, cauliflower, eggplant, and lots of hummus. The fried veggies were quite tasty, but too greasy. 😦

For dessert, the roomies and I enjoyed Menchie’s! I haven’t had Menchie’s before, but was so happy to see that they had crushed Reese’s PB cups and cubed cheesecake. OMG. I think I like frozen yogurt even MORE than ice cream because of the toppings.

Mom’s cooking looks lovely, too… and she got a haircut! πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to be back in BC next month.

Also, it’s been so nice outside recently so the UW Acro Yoga club has been meeting at Waterloo Park. These are some of the new poses that we tried, with the help of Google and these squishy blue mats that we couldn’t live without. Have you tried acro yoga before?

Acro is my favourite form of yoga and I think next year, I’d love to attend some acro workshops in Toronto and possibly get a certification in acro.

  2. I’ve missed you Cindy! So glad you’re back! I’d describe that mug cake as…tantalizing, if you ask me! I want to dig into it soooooo badly!

    And acro yoga looks insane. Terrifying! I would probably die trying a pose!

    1. Oh my gosh, tantalizing is the perfect word. You know what else is tantalizing?! YOUR GRAD PHOTOS! The dress is so beautiful ❀
      Hahaha I don't think so! These poses are actually fairly beginner and I think you would be able to master them with a little practice πŸ™‚

      1. Really?! I’m actually not a huge watermelon fan – I find it too watery (lame, I know). But YES, bananas + PB (and chocolate!) and everything with garlic. Garlic makes everything 10x better!

      2. I wasn’t a big fan of watermelon either, same actually goes for bananas and peanut butter πŸ˜› So I guess I acquired the taste for these things over time.
