Clean, Clean, Clean

by Meghann on August 23, 2009

I have been hard at work cleaning my apartment today. My landlord were coming over so with a new lease and I had to make sure my place was spic and span.

I hate to clean, so my super clean job may not be up to any clean freaks standards, but it works for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Maddie spent the whole day following me around as I moved from room to room. Eventually she did pass out, but this girl has energy. The whole day I bet she only napped an hour or two.

Cleaning also meant running errands. While running the errands we hit up Jason’s Deli for a yummy lunch.

I have seen Jason’s Delis around, but have never been to one myself. I really enjoyed the open atmosphere

and loved their menu philosophy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I ordered the Mediterranean Wrap with a side of Strawberries and Pineapple.

I thought the wrap would have more veggies, but besides that it was really tasty.

I finished my whole plate. ๐Ÿ™‚

The best past about Jason’s Deli?

The free Ice Cream!

I had a small vanilla soft serve on our way out the door.

After lunch I organized my desk, cleaned the bathroom and lugged out some trash. I built my hunger right back up and had a small bowl of Kashi H2H mixed with Dried Pineapple and Peanuts.

When it was time for dinner I knew exactly what I wanted.. PIZZA!!

The last time I made homemade pizza dough I had split it in half. I made an awesome Margherita Pizza with one half and froze the other. This evening I pulled the frozen half fro the freezer and let it defrost on the the counter top for a couple of hours. I was pleasantly surprised how nicely the crust defrosted. I was able to roll it out with no problems.

I topped my pizza with red sauce, mushrooms, zucchini, yellow squash, beets, mozzarella, feta and fresh basil then baked in the oven at 425 for 10 minutes.

The result were taste bud heaven. My favorite part were the beets. The beets really influenced the overall flavor of the pizza in a wonderful soothing way.

With the pizza I had Massaged Kale Salad.

This is the same salad I made on Friday night. I think having the salad sit in the fridge for three days really let the lemon and olive oil flavors sink in. The kale was not bitter at all.

I wanted something refreshing after I did the dishes, so I grabbed a handful of grapes.

They did the trick.

I’ve been pretty sleepy all day and believe an early bed time is in order for me.

Good night everyone!!

Universal Misadventures

August 23, 2009

Though last night turned into a series of failures, forgetfulness and poor planning on our part, I have to say it was still a great evening. It just goes to show you that sometimes nights that seem bad are really the best. ๐Ÿ™‚ Despite my cookie craziness yesterday afternoon, my tummy started to grumble for more ยป
