Surprising my sister

Sooo sorry about not posting anything yesterday…….I went out with my dad for lunch at McAlister’s!!!!!! Soo yummy! My absolute favorite thing to get there is the Chicken Tortilla Soup Breadbowl. It is heavenly! =D I also went and bought a journal so that I can practice my writing skillz. =P

Then, last night, dad took us out for ice cream, or in my case, a smoothie!!! I got Tropical Smoothie Cafe’s Very Berry Green Tea, at least I think that’s the name. It had acai, blueberries, strawberries, and matcha green tea. It was yummy!!!!!!

Also, I recently recieved a bamboo steamer, which I had the opportunity to try out last night. I steamed zuchinni, squash, onion, and bell peppers. I then mixed garlic, salt, and pepper into the veggies. They went on my dinner sandwich along with some turkey, cottage cheese, tomato, basil, and salsa. The sandwich was so huge that I had to eat it open-faced!!!!

This morning, I tried yet another new strength training workout. Today’s was Exercise TV’s Incredible Abs 2, which I found on youtube. =P It was pretty intense. I think that I would do it again sometime, but not every day.

Tonight is my sister’s half-year birthday. Since we won’t be in the country for her actual birthday, I decided to take her out to her favorite mexican restaurant tonight instead!!!!!! I can hardly keep from spilling it to her!!!! It’s gonna be a late dinner though, because we’re trying out Zumba for the first time tonight. Classes are being given at our church from 6:15 to 7:15. I’m pretty excited about that too!!!!!!!

Well, I have to get back to school!!!!

I get attacked by my blender

I honestly own the most ornery blender in the world. Today, I was making a coffee protein shake and, even though the blender lid was tightly closed, somehow air pressure or something raised it up and I got bathed in coffee. That’s one way to start the day. =D

This weekend was suuuper fun….. after church, we spent all yesterday afternoon at a friend’s, cooking out, swimming, and just having tons of fun. I was sad when it was time to come home. =P

Now, I’m just doing my school work, and trying to do some extra work today so that I can have a “lighter” rest of the week.

I’ve got tons of recipes that I want to try, from Julia Child’s ratatouille to spaghetti squash to shrimp creole. I also have a stack of good cookbooks to look through. Am I the only one who truly gets a kick out of reading cookbooks? I just think that it’s sooo much fun. =P I’ll keep ya’ll posted on how the cooking is going this week!!!! I’m soooo excited about all of my new recipes!!!!!!!!!

Do you have any recipes that you want to share? If so, just post ’em in the comments section! I looooove cooking and want to try out new things!!!!!

Well, sorry about the quick post, but I have to get back to studying!!!!

Buh-bye now! =D
