Excitement is in the eye of the beholder.

The most "exciting" things that have happened since my last post were making dinner and watching the new episodes of South Park and Important Things with Demetri Martin. I put that in quotes because not doing nothing IS pretty exciting for me :)

I'll start with dinner last night. Pizza was originally on the menu, but for some reason our lunch yesterday kept us really full all night. A lot of protein, I guess.

We had been talking about a restaurant that doesn't exist anymore that used to be one of my favorite places to eat. Period. It was called Mad Hatter's and they had the most amazing sandwiches, sweets, and coffee. I went there as often as possible until they suddenly closed about a year ago. So sad. One of their awesome sandwiches was called The Dodo, and we decided to replicate it last night.

It's really easy to make and a huge treat! In the sandwich:
  • 2 slices multigrain bread
  • peanut butter (we used crunchy)
  • sliced banana
  • honey
  • raisins
  • granola
I need to admire it a little more.

Ok. Done. Today has been another slow eating day, due to late awakening and a big breakfast. Tried something a little different today though: Gingerbread Waffles.

Ingredients (for about 4 waffles):
  • 2 cups pancake/waffle mix
  • 1 c. water
  • 1/4 c. mollases
  • 1 t. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/3 c. oil
Mix together and use waffle iron according to its directions. We had them with smart balance and syrup and they were very rich and good. Sweet, though and I haven't been hungry since.

I'll be back at my house before I know it, with my standard eats and my normal eating/workout schedule. But I like this right now :)

  4. yum - the sandwich looks great. I was able to try the Madhatter once with my boyfriend and had an amazing burrito. He went to Salisbury and swore by that place. We actually went there last summer not knowing it had closed - he was SO upset.
