10+105

Wondering what those numbers are?

10hrs of field work.

105 degree heat.

It was definitely a long and hot one! Glad that’s over and we’ve got a cooling trend coming…think mid 40′s at night and low 70′s this weekend!  Woooo!!!

Alas, the weekend is almost here!  At least I started today off right:

Another bowl of overnight oats for me!  Almost the same as yesterday with a 1/4C rolled oats, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, water, banana, peach, blueberries and a big blog of naturally more pb!  Yeow!

Thank goodness this was filling, since field work took all morning and afternoon, so I only had an apple around 11 and didn’t get to have lunch until 3pm! Yikes! You can be as soon as I got in the door I was in that kitchen.  High temps equal cold lunch!

Frozen mango, frozen blueberries, water, cheerios, pb…so tasty…and eaten far too fast to trigger that I wasn’t hungry anymore!  Thank goodness I stayed busy or I would have eaten more of my kitchen!

Luckily I had therapy and talked about my little incident on Sunday…it definitely made a difference, but of course I wish the even never happened in the first place!

I’ve got some guests coming this weekend so I hit up the last farmer’s market of the summer and the grocery store to make sure there was something other than cheerios, kiwis and tofu in my kitchen and fridge.  Oh, and mustard.  Yes, it has been that kind of week!

Even though it had only been three hours I was starving again!  So I made an awesome sandwich on the BEST BREAD EVER:

That would be the bread that upon opening the bag, automatically transports me back to summers as a kid, out on the lake with a fishing pole, running around in the dirt, gazing up at the milky way from the middle of a parking lot…and so much more.  I sure do miss Mammoth.  I definitely want to take a trip up there before the end of the year.  I mean, how could you not want to!?  Look at it!

It is heaven in the mountains, I promise.

Oh wait, I was talking about food right? Haha…my sandwich Sheepherder’s Bread was filled with a chickpea mix (beans smashed with garlic powder, pepper, and balsamic) with laughing cow and lots of veggies.

And a nice side of cantaloupe.  The mix might have been heavy on the garlic…

And to round out the long day I settled with the sweets:

(An extra handful of cereal might have made it into my mouth.  Or two.)

Nom oh hell freak’n nom.  But probably no where near as good as Mama Pea’s Vegan Reese’s Blizzard.  Ok…this officially makes me uncreative! LOL!  But I know you want to try hers…who wouldn’t?

Insight: Earliest Thing You Can Remember

This one is pretty hard…as I really don’t know.  I have memories of things from an early age based up photos, but otherwise I don’t really have an “earliest memory.”  But I suppose if I had to really think back…it would be to my living in St. Louis, MO.  I was only there for a short time as a child…but the one thing I remember was the rock wall near the front door.  Like literally, a wall that had sharp jagged rocks pocking out of it.  I’m guessing whoever built the damned place didn’t’ consider kids living there…because I remember my parents constantly reminding me to stay away from it.  And I remember how ugly it was.  I wish I had a picture to show you!  I’m sure I fell against it more than once rough housing w/ my brothers…but that’s for another day.  Oh, and there was the smell…I don’t know how to describe it by I remember the smell of that house and get a whiff of it every once in a while…

What’s your earliest memory?  And is there something that brings back childhood memories for you?

    You are going to cruise through this race if you are used to the 105 temps! It was in the 70s today and is supposed to be the same through the weekend. I'll keep you updated throughout the week.

    And I'm so making you the Blizzards Saturday night. I'm getting excited now!!!

    *sigh* that picture of the white fluffy clouds looks like heaven. do they serve fro yo out the wazoo there? ;)

    hmm i think one of my earliest memories is seeing a wild horse walk up to our beach house int he Outer Banks when I was about 4 years old. (that was when it was so unpopulated that they let the wild horses roam free!)

    happy friday lovely :)

    Wow! That is a long day in that temperature! I bet those cool meals were more than welcomed. Your overnight oats are GORGEOUS. Have fun with your guests this weekend. Earliest memory- watching my dad play softball from a crib when my mom had to work (my mom worked nights and my dad would bring us to his games!)

    One of my earliest memories is when my grandmother picked me up at pre-pre-school at our church. I was probably 3ish? And she took me to Baskin Robbins and we shared a banana split. I asked her if we could get some ice cream for my sisters and she had to explain to me that it would melt. So random. I <3 it though.

    The smell of canteloupe will always remind me of my grandma. I couldn't have been more than 3 or 4, but I have vivid memories of sitting in her kitchen, the summer breeze blowing my dress, and my grandma cutting canteloupe and handing me a big bowl.

    Enjoy your cool weather!

    I have no idea what my first memory is! I am totally racking my brain trying to figure it out, but now I think I'm kind of convincing myself of memories. Does that make sense?

    i love a good bread – makes all the difference. i'm still on my search for the ultimate!

    Eeek! It's been hot your way for sure! We've got another heat wave rolling in, but not quite that bad! Your cantaloupe always looks so dang refreshing…

    My earliest memory (that I can remember right now) is of a birthday party at my old old old house–I remember being all dressed up and decorating cookies :)

    I never knew you lived in STL–too cool! you should come back and visit sometime!
