Has it really been a week since I last posted?! Sorry about that.
Ya’ll can scroll down to the bottom if you want for a special surprise featuring CSN Stores.
I am incredibly excited that summer is so close; one more week. One more week until I have free time to spend with my family, friends and my kitchen.
I really want to try a lot of recipes now that I’ll have time to
Speaking of – I’ve gotten a head start with Janetha’s Coffee Cake! I just subbed banana in for the apples, used gluten free flour instead of WW, and regular brown sugar in place of Splenda (just cause I didn’t have any on hand)
I took a much needed break from working on final projects/studying and whipped it up:
Add some banana + almonds (p.s. I also didn’t have slivered almonds…but whole ones worked)
25 minutes at 350 and voilaa!
This week I’ve also been whipping up plenty of these thangs – quick, easy and awesome:
Crunchy Kimchi Omelette
1 egg + 2 egg whites
1/4 cup Kimchi
1/3 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
2 slices cheese…sliced again
Whatever else you wanna add! I recommend spinach
I won’t bore you with “instructions” because I’m pretty sure it’s kind of obvious how to grease a pan and pour the ingredients on + flip
If you’ve never tried kimchi before, I suggest you do! It’s awesome. You can find it at Whole Foods and at plenty of Asian grocers!
Have you ever had kimchi?
Earlier this morning while I was studying blog surfing and enjoying my breakfast, I got a question on my formspring that really kind of opened my eyes.
“Are your parents separated? You tend to speak a lot of your father, but not of your mother. Sorry if this is a sensitive subect.”
Not a sore subject at all, but still kind of made me feel as if I don’t “appreciate” my Mom on here, or mention her enough. Mother’s day is tomorrow, and I plan on spending the day with her, of course My Mom and I are two totally different people. Sure, I’ve inherited so much from her, and some of my traits are definitely similar to hers, but my Dad and I have always been a little closer. Why? You know, I’m not really sure. I’m totally a Daddy’s girl, and will whole-heartedly admit that at 20 years old. Growing up, I always gravitated towards him, and I felt as if we got to spend more time together. My Mom worked a lot, and to be honest, sometimes I feel as if that made us distant at a time. I adore my Mom to pieces and I know she’s worked so hard to be the best mother she can, and she totally rocks. She is an AMAZING person, and she has the ability to brighten anyone’s day by just simply walking in the room. She has been through so much, and deserves so much love. She survived a stroke 2 summers ago and is one of the strongest and most determined women I’ve ever come across in my life. She’s absolutely beautiful. I don’t play favorites, I know God wouldn’t want that and neither do I. Just to clear things up, I love both of my parents a ridiculous amount and I am incredibly blessed to have them in my life – without them I would not know who I am, nor would I be the person I’ve developed into today. My parents are married, but they are seperated – it’s pretty confusing – but as I said on my formspring – I’m over it! They can do whatever they please, as long as they’re happy. Yes, they still hang out and get along. I do certainly believe God has a place for them to eventually be together again. They are wonderful people.
Love you Momma
