So I wrote this whole thing about how today was so annoying – my air conditioner in my car stopped working, my allergies were killing me, I was pissed off about something at work, I forgot my socks when I went to the gym, etc. But then I read what I wrote and realized that I sounded kind of like a whiny brat, so I erased it. Although, I really did just write it anyway. I’m sneaky like that.
Instead of whining, I am going to post pretty pictures. Flowers are pretty.
Flowers with mimosas and berries are even prettier. I promise I don’t usually drink at breakfast time. This weekend was an exception to the rule. I really wish I’d dusted that table before taking a picture. Now you’re looking at the dust, aren’t you?
You know what’s not pretty but still good? Frozen fish from Trader Joe’s. Seriously, it’s the only place that I’ve found where frozen fish actually tastes good when it is thawed and cooked. Both Kroger and Publix’s frozen fish tastes horrible and I don’t even really like Whole Foods. Trader Joe’s is where it’s at. I dug out this cod from the depths of my freezer.
See, definitely not pretty, but it was good. The sauce reminded me of Chinese food. I baked it for about 12 minutes at 375, although the directions say you can pan fry it or microwave it too. Microwaving fish? Yeah, that’s not going to happen.
See, I feel better already. The annoying day is behind me. And to forget about it even further, here’s a fun survey that I stole from Laura:
Coke or Pepsi? Coke, specifically of the Diet variety although I don’t drink it much because it hurts my stomach.
Lemonade or Fruit Punch? I don’t really like either. Actually, that’s not true. I like some lemonades, but I am picky about it. There’s this taste that’s often in lemonade that I don’t like. It’s the same taste that I don’t like in sour mix.
Carmel Apple or Cotton Candy? Meh, neither really.
Butterfinger or Snickers? Snickers.
Pudding and Jell-O? Pudding, although I like Jell-O Pudding so I guess that’s both.
Turkey or Chicken? I don’t eat either, but when I did, I preferred chicken.
American or Provolone Cheese? I guess provolone. I like very basic cheeses – cheddar, mozzarella, monterey jack. Although I do like goat and feta, not blue. I hate blue cheese.
Crackers or Cookies? Obviously cookies, although I like crackers too.
Pretzels or Chips? Chips, but I do like pretzels too.
Mexican food or Japanese food? Japanese. I like Mexican food when I make Mexican style things at home (aka opening a can of refried beans and pouring salsa on it), but I often feel really sick from the cheese from Mexican food at a restaurant.
Chinese food or Italian food? Chinese.
Pie or Cake? Really, I prefer ice cream over both.
Ice Cream or Cookies? See above
Pasta or Pizza? Pizza
Soda or Juice? Does Vitamin Water Zero count? I only like the lemonade and orange flavors though.
Chocolate Bars or Chocolate Truffles? I don’t know how to explain this, but I don’t really like chocolate. That’s not true – I like milk chocolate – but not chocolate flavored anything or anything very chocolately. I’ll always choose vanilla ice cream over chocolate. But I guess chocolate bars, provided they are milk and not dark chocolate.
Apples or Bananas? Such a hard choice. I guess bananas because sometimes apples are mealy and you don’t know they’re mealy until you take a bite and it’s a huge disappointment. With a banana, you know.
Salad or Soup? Soup, although I like salad too.
Cauliflower or Broccoli? I like them both, but probably like broccoli more.
Onion Rings or French Fries? French fries for sure. I don’t like onion rings.
Blizzard or McFlurry? I don’t think I’ve ever had a McFlurry. I do like a Frosty, is that similar?
Fried or Poached Eggs? Fried
Crepes or Pancakes? Pancakes
Hashbrowns or Roasted Potatoes? Oooh, tough choice. I’ll go with roasted potatoes.
Oatmeal or Cereal? Cereal. I know, I know. Kick me out of the healthy blog world.
