Welcome to HUMP DAY everyone!
Do you call Wednesday's Hump Day?
The saying 'hump day' relates to the working week being like climbing a hill. It originates from feelings that Wednesday can be the hardest day of the week, the day that can feel the most exhausting & that we have the least amount of motivation because we've finally exhausted ourselves to get to the top of that hill! But at least after today it's a downhill run!!!!!!
Today I definitely felt like I was on the top of the hill!
Being up a touch earlier than usual meant that I was out the door without any rush. We had an office meeting for several hours, which is always great because I love my fellow workmates so much. This afternoon I had my first trip to Costco. The drive home this week on the freeway was only ONE HOUR!!!!!!!!! Wooooo-hoooooo :D And I was welcomed at home by a parcel of bras I'd ordered online *cheap* - my favourite brand!
Seriously - does a day get any better than that??????
|Well stocked with dates, rice, tofu, passata and...... bras!!!!!|
Here's my munchies for today:
I had a nectarine and apricot for afternoon tea and I also must admit that I did have a Macro bar on the way home..... it was a precautionary step that I took leaving one in my handbag just in case the drive home was bad..... but even though it wasn't I ate it anyway ;-)
This month on the peas and crayons blog veggies are getting a special mention!
WIAW followers are joining in love your veggies month!
If you ask me, veggies are definitely worth loving!
As I sat and thought about which veggie I would want to share the love of, I really couldn't decide!
I loooooooooove red capsicum....
but I also loooooooooooooooove cauliflower............
and I can't forget how much I looooooooooooooove snow peas, and shallots and mushrooms and............
Well you get the point!
Today I decided to share with you some EGGPLANT love <3.
Yes, I love eggplant too! (Also known as aubergine!)
Yesterday I made an Eggplant Moussaka recipe from the Forks Over Knives Cookbook. Clearly our eggplants needed to be used soon ;-)
I had never tried a moussaka before but had always wanted to so I was very excited.
The recipe has 3 parts - lentils, eggplant & sauce. Each part is made from scratch.
I really enjoyed the whole process!
And it was amazingly tasty! :-)
