I turned on the air conditioning in my car today. In February. I don’t even use my air conditioning in July.

Baby Cakes is making me hot, and, as someone who is freezing cold 90% of the time, I love it.


Pinova apple and my homemade nut butter

We had ½ cup(ish) each of cashews, walnuts, and almonds hiding in the back of the cabinet – so I threw them all in the food processor with some salt, turned it on for about 3 minutes, and voila – mixed nut butter. Deeelicious.

For lunch, I had leftover tortilla soup.

After school I had a doctor’s appointment, and I haven’t gained any weight in the last few weeks. While that’s okay with me, it’s apparently not good for Baby Cakes, so I resolved to eat all of my dinner tonight.

Not a problem with these Jamaican Jerk Fajitas. I had no idea what I was doing – I just wikipediea-ed “jerk seasoning” and then went wild.

The veggies: zucchini, two bell peppers (yellow/red), red onion, two rings of canned pineapple (okay, not a veggie) – all sliced

The “jerk” seasoning: allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, thyme, salt, pepper – I think it was about 1 tsp. of each

I sautéed it all with about a tablespoon of olive oil.

Just like the doctor prescribed, I ate the whole thing (granted, it was a taco-sized tortilla) – and it was seriously good.

Then I drank a sip of water. Then I burped – and I threw up. (Luckily, I was standing next to the sink.) I guess it was too much food for my squished stomach. Lesson learned. I’ll figure out a way to squeeze in those extra calories somehow.

In the 3rd grade world…

Another fantastically entertaining journal response.

This morning’s prompt was:

If you were given a plain white shirt to decorate however you wanted, what would it look like? Why?

I would make an awesome shirt. It would have the words NO GIRLS on the back. It would have a bomb. There would be flames on it. But before all that, I would get it to be black. Maybe I’ll put paint ball splatters. Then I’d put a face that’s flaming. It would be awesome. That’s the way I’d decorate it.

Your best guess…written by a boy or a girl??
