My fridge is pretty empty and there are no fresh vegetables to be found but I was feeling desperate to eat them. My body was actually craving them so after searching my freezer I came up with this…
A huge plate of corn, edamame and broccoli. The broccoli was actually one of those Green Giant single servings in cheese so I blended that all together. Despite the chemical cheese, it still needed some flavor so I added some beloved ketchup to the mix. “ketchup is full of sugar Lindsay. You shouldn’t eat it. ” Thats what my dad would always tell me and I can’t help but hear his voice in my ear every time I reach for the ketchup bottle.Ketchup does have a lot of sugar in it and ya know what? That’s exactly why I love it so much. It tastes like freaking heaven in a handbag. Back in the day, I would eat ketchup sandwiches with just bread and ketchup. Don’t you dare me to start eating them again because I will. Oh yes, I will.
My old work called and asked me to cover some hours over the next three weeks which I’m super stoked about. My goal is to get in 8 hours per week which will happen mostly on the weekends. This opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time since we have two small vacations coming up (Maine and Nashville) requiring money that I don’t have. No big plans for the weekend besides work and dinner with two of my lovely girlfriends tomorrow. You’ve seen them on the blog before. Can’t wait to catch up with them. Isn’t it crazy how much time can pass between visits? Hate that.
Today when I was zoning out in class I made my bucket list. It includes: a service trip to a third world country, learning to speak another language, learning how to play guitar, have babies, travel Africa. I feel in a rush to make the service trip happen. I applied to the Peace Corps in 04 and only got accepted into positions that weren’t of interest to me. I applied to other organizations but have never followed through. I regret that. What’s on your list?
