I'm so tired now! I woke up at 5am, went to the airport, the flight was one hour delay. While I was waiting I was falling into sleep, so a large Starbucks coffee. Back home with Dad, we went together to campus because I have to teach today. He wanted to see me teaching....his little girl is teaching now...... that's incredible for him..... so I let him sit in my class. He was the happiest Dad in the world and I was the happiest daughter at the same time watching him so proud and so happy~~~
This afternoon my home is a total mess.....my roomie is moving out and my friend is moving in, so you can imagining all the box and random stuffs in the living room. I cleaned, organized and cook for Dad.
Today is Halloween and my way to celebrate it is to have a lot of pumpkin (isn't it obvious by now?) I had pumpkin oatmeal twice today, for breakfast and for dinner.
Breakfast combo was
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup almond breeze
- 1/2 cup baked butternut squash
- a pinch of salt (this is a key ingredient to let oats to release its flavor, I just learned it from Heidi's book)
- 1 tbsp flax meal
- 1/4 cottage cheese
- 1 tbsp coconut flakes
This combo hold me from 6 am to almost 1 pm..... so satisfying and delicious!
Lunch was baked tofu, sour and spicy soup with eggs and curry veggies with meat (pre-made), and rice. Typical chinese meal.
I cleaned and organize the kitchen for 3 hours, when I finish I was needing a big snack... so I had apple with cottage cheese, tons of cinnamon and a big bowl of EnjoyLife granola.
My fridge is totally empty. I was planning to go to do groceries with Dad this afternoon....but both of us were really tired and decide to postpone it ..... so, dinner was really simple, I came up with a porridge made with millet, brown rice, a canned salmon and chinese dark egg, S+P. My Dad really liked it!
I made two side dishes as well....One is black fungus salad and the other one is a hydrated green leaves salad (similar to spinach), both of them seasoned with soy sauce, salt, sugar and sesame oil.
I wanted more pumpkin oatmeal, so I had another pumpkin oatmeal (just oats, baked butternut and water).
I was so full when I finish dinner that I couldn't have dessert....but 30 min later, some digestion was done, a Fage would fit. So, I had Fage with cinnamon. (no pic!)
While you guys are having fun with your amazing custumes (which I want to see pics later), I'm heading to bed soon. Really really tired........ !! Hopefully I can get a good night sleep so I can take my Dad tomorrow to DC and show him around.
Enjoy your party for me~~~~~~~~ ^_^
