hot hot heat

July 16, 2009

wow, weather-wise today has been the best day of the summer yet! it was nice and H.O.T with not a gray cloud in sight! i hope it’s not too much to ask for just one more day of sun…there’s an outdoor event i really really wanna attend tomorrow!

well, i had a breakfast that was totally not in sync with the hot weather…oatmeal! i had made a big batch of steel cut oats last week during my lil’ blogging absence and forgot about it in the back of my fridge. today i had some heated up in the microwave with a splash of soymilk and mashed banana, and topped with twiggies and peanut butter.


yum…i’m not a big oatmeal fan, but i enjoyed this and it kept me full forever!

i was totally irresponsible and went out to the pool before i finished my work project. my wireless was so slow and i couldn’t get anything done, so i just gave up before i wasted anymore precious daytime hours.

i packed some watermelon and an apple to snack on out there.


i knew i should be at home working, but boy those clear skies made it hard for me to go back in! i ended up staying til 5-ish.

once back home, i had some more vino and dark chocolate while i preheated the oven and got back to workie.

for dinner i made pizza with store bought whole wheat dough. it doesn’t look so pretty, but i promise it was very good….the pizza is topped with some crushed tomatoes, spinach, mozzarella and a sprinkling of crushed red peppers.


tommy and i usually eat dinner together at the dining table but today i had to finish my project so i ate it while on my laptop and ended up going for seconds…and maybe even thirds :). i’m not too concerned about that since i kinda skipped lunch but i really wish i had a salad or some more veggies to go with the pizza! i’ll just have to fit them in tomorrow!

well, if it does end up raining all day tomorrow i’ll have no excuse not to try out some new recipes. i bookmarked a couple eat, drink & be vegan recipes last night, and i’m really excited to get cookin’ tomorrow. see ya then!

    I always surprise myself when I want oats on a hot day, too, but sometimes oats is all that will do!
    Don’t feel bad about enjoying some sunshine…summer will be over before we know it!

    I haven’t bought twigs in at least a year. That picture just made me want to get some. Maybe this weekend.

    I do oats on hot days too. One time I started sweating and that was kind of.. uncomfortable?

    I want to make pizza now! Hope the mother nature goes your way tomorrow 🙂
