Tofu Tuesday

I woke up at around six this morning and convinced myself that it was too early to get up...On top of it being too early, I was just too lazy to get out of bed --- SO I kept on sleeping!

I should have known that that would result in me neverrrr getting up... I ended up arising at around 11 --- I should have just got up at six...I hate when I sleep in!

After getting out of my morning grogginess, I made myself some breaky!

Today I made myself a good ol' oatmeal pancake because it was almost lunch and I was 2X as hungry as I would be at a regular breakfast hour!

Unfortunately, I had some problems with that bloody pancake...Apparently, I didn't grease the pan enough. So when I went to flip her, she started breaking like no other! I ended up having to cut it in quarters so that it wouldn't fall apart completely... I mean, in the end it's all about what it looks like on camera, right?

However, just like make-up, I was able to make it look quite nice...Toppings can fix anything!

I put some chopped apples, yogurt, almond butter, cherry jam and agave nectar on it! Minus the broken mess, it was quite delicious.

After breakfast I headed out to the gym for a quick workout before class. I should have gone earlier, but I spent too much time doing nothing...

When I got home I quickly showered and scarfed down a spinach salad with tomato, red pepper, carrot, onion, ginger, tuna, pesto, and balsamic vinegrette.

Even though I didn't photograph it, I also chowed down on some crackers and cheese after my salad...

I headed out to my four hour evening class after getting ready..and chowing down!

We had a newsfeed test tonight --- What that means, well I don't know...Look at my test mark.

Okay, no. Over the time span of an hour, we were given new news on a certain topic every fifteen minutes and had to write a story for each segment...While getting all this information, we had to make sure we weren't assuming info that was "supposedly" reported. There was some serious adrenaline flowin' by the end of it!

When I got home, I immediately cracked open a beer.

For dinner I whipped up something hearty!

I had a "tofu flank" with ginger, garlic, and onion. Alongside I had mashed sweet potato...I added the ginger, garlic, and onion from the tofu fry to the sweet potatoes when I mashed them!

I also had some steamed broccoli and peas.

It was quite good...However, I should have added a little more flavour to the tofu as it didn't soak up enough flavour from just sauteing in the three ingredients!

For dessert I had some ice cream...Mocha Almond Fudge, baby!
