Friday I’m in Love {with Food}

Lately, I’ve been eating so many good foods. Probably more than I should be considering I want to lose some weight, not gain it.

Whatever.

I will never apologize for my love of food. Or my love of photographing my food (something I’ve done way before Instagram)!

On Monday, I was having some difficulty picking out my breakfast cereal. Do I go with the always delicious frosted mini wheats? Or do I mix it up and choose Special K Chocately Delight? Being the indecisive person that I’ve been known to be, I mixed them together. The result? The most amazing flavor combination of my breakfast cereal life. So much yumminess in one bowl, it disappeared in less than two minutes.

Honeycrisp apples have RETURNED!! You can have your pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin beer, I’ll enjoy every honeycrisp apple I encounter. I spotted these beauties last week while Chris and I were grocery shopping and shrieked with delight in the store. People stared. It wasn’t that awkward. The first bite into this apple and I knew that wait all year was worth it. No other fruit compares to the beauty and the amazingness of the precious honeycrisp!

Ice cream for dinner might be new favorite way to eat dinner. Put it in a waffle cone and I am sold. Wednesday night while I was getting my sweat on at the gym, Jenny sent me a text asking if I wanted to go for ice cream later. She then put a sad face saying that I wouldn’t be able to go since I hadn’t had dinner yet. I quickly replied that ice cream is a perfectly acceptable dinner choice for a twenty-five year old adult. And it was, it really was.

Apples and pizza for lunch? If you insist! The extra cheesiness of this pizza with the sweetness of the apples made me s happy. Unfortunately, two slices was one too many.

I’ve had some other tasty treats this week including breakfast tacos and pulled pork. And I am in no way sorry about that. Everything in moderation. I wasn’t overeating, but I could have incorporated more vegetables into the diet. Clearly, I fell off the wagon this week with eating (okay maybe the last few weeks), but I don’t believe in depriving myself of something that just tastes SO good! Next week will be filled with apples, salads, frosted mini wheats, and maybe not ice cream for dinner.

It’ll all even out.

And it’ll be delicious.

What is your favorite food? Why? Do you like to take photos of your food, why or why not? How do you change your eating habits when you have ‘bad’ weeks? Let’s discuss!

PS. Penny likes to explore the dishwasher.

The Adventures of Penny

Penelope already poses for the camera. I know it looks like she is disinterested, but don’t be fooled.

I was nervous that Penny would be a cautious and timid cat. Totally wrong. It took her 2.5 seconds to get adjusted to her new home and she has been hilarious to watch ever since.

Chris and I typically find her in the strangest places.

In Chris’ dresser drawer in the closet. Just hanging out.

In the bookcase. Lounging.

Sneaking into the sink. Caught!

Making dinner. Chef!

She also likes to sit on the trashcan and put her paws on the counter and watch. Today she decided to help.

Trapped behind the fridge. She jumped off the counter and landed on the ground before realizing there was no way for her to escape. I imagine this is what it feels like to have your baby get stuck in a well. Silly girl!

Checking in with her Facebook friends.

These are just the pictures from today! Seriously!  She also decided that she was going to take a dip into the toilet. And a lap around the water heater.

She is such a funny girl. We laugh so much while we watch her play and explore.

She also LOVES food. And begs like a dog.

I totally believe that I found the perfect fit for my little family.

Chris finally let me adopt a kitten. He isn’t much of a cat person so this is a HUGE deal.

Not much of a cat person, hmm?

I could not be happier.

Penny and I are already BFFs.

She likes playing with her toys, eating a lot, and cuddling. She hates running water, the noises the AC unit makes, and the sound of dogs barking.

Fortunately for her, I already love her so much that on her first night with us I skipped a run. She should feel special.
