PUDDING!


Wednesday, more than half way through the work week!  WHOOHOO!  It's not that I don't like my day job, it's that I don't like sitting in an office all day.  I'm not the sitting type, or the typing type, or the paperwork type, or the office drama/politics type.  It's just not the place for me.  But, it is a life I've temporarily set myself up in and I'll stick with it for now.  The pay is good, the hours are great, and the general freedom is fantastic, so really, I have it pretty good.  No one notices me - I don't really have a team job, but an independent one, and my boss is the coolest.

So, to gear myself up for a morning of number crunching, I had a delicious bowl of Dorset cereal, blueberries and skim milk.
My apple this morning was huge, and crisp and tasty!
Also had 1/2 a Luna bar.  This is loaded with chocolate so it's great!
Lunch was typical Tuesday or Wednesday sashimi.  Love you raw fish.

This sunny orange made the afternoon.
Went to the gym after work and ellipticalled for 40min.  Did some upper body weights and Core Control class.  Good workout.

Once home, I had a handful of raisins and almonds.  Good combo!
Dinner was leftover ribs, roast sweet potatoes and broccoli.  The Shepherd gets his greens smothered in cheese.
Kristen made me think about pudding the last few days, so I dug out a recipe I haven't made in ages.  It's super easy. 

Chocolate Pudding
Makes 4 servings

4 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp corn starch
3 tbsp agave
2 cups milk (I used almond milk)

1.  Stir together cocoa and corn starch
2.  Whisk in milk
3.Whisk in agave
4.  Cook on stove top until it thickens, sort of like gravy
5.  Pour in to 4 bowls and refrigerate for about 30min
6.  Lick the pot clean of extra chocolate before it hardens. :)

My pudding picture is not cooperating this morning, but if I get it to later, I'll add it.  It's super delicious anyway.  Not too sweet, but sweet enough.
