Hi there! I don’t really have anything exciting to say this morning. Now that I’m home from Uni I spend most of the day at home, alone! My parents are at work, my brother is at school (school ends in less than 2 weeks though!) and all of my friends are at Uni and are super-busy with exams (good luck with exams in case you’re reading this). So really, I’m a bit bored. I try to relax but I got so bored on Monday that my mom gave my a list of house-hold chores that I could do which I gladly tackled. I also included one chore of my own – making macaroons 🙂
Although during exam stress there’s nothing I’d like more than a vacation I’m just not a person who likes doing nothing at all so I’m quite happy that I’ll start working in July which will keep me busy!
I hope your week is going well and that you’re enjoying the summer weather! A big thanks as always to Jenn for hosting the foodie party. I look forward to it every week 🙂
I went for a short run before breakfast and had 1/2 banana with almond butter after waking up. After my run I had a proper breakfast. I’ve been having lots of oatmeal lately and I thought it was about time for overnight oats. Especially with the weather being warm and sunny it felt right to start the day with something to cool my belly.
The overnight oats included goji berries, 1/2 banana, blueberries and flax seeds and were topped with more berries and granola. I also had one of the chocolate buns I made on Monday which I warmed up to melt the chocolate.
Perfect breakfast if you ask me!
I spent the rest of the morning outside working in the garden and needed a refreshment in form of fruit when I was done! Nectarine and blackberries sounded just right!
Even though it feels like I haven’t had the most productive day I actually managed to do something I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time. Ever since my sister and I went to France in March (where we taste tested pretty much every single macaroon flavor available) I’ve been wanting to make them at home. And with not much on my to-do list yesterday seemed like the perfect day. I had way too much of the sugar-egg white mixture while piping it out onto the parchment paper but I need to try the food I make before giving it to my family, right? … Not a good idea because I was all sugared out and all I wanted for lunch was vegetables.
Vegetables were consumed in a large salad which included cucumber, radishes, bell pepper and some sheep milk cheese crumbled on top. And although I had already consumed more than my fair share of macaroons before lunch I just couldn’t resist another bite (or three, oops) with my afternoon coffee!
Luckily my mom and I had some errands to run in the afternoon which took my mind of those delicious babies. We were out until dinner time and when we got back I was starving. Proof that sugar just isn’t filling.
For dinner we threw together a quick salad which I was very happy with. Nothing better than ending the day on a healthy note.
Have a HAPPY WIAW!!!!!
