Good morning, Greens!
A sight for sore eyes!
After my green-less dinner last night, I knew I just HAD to have a Green Monster for breakfast. It was a necessity! I made this one using:
- 1/2 banana – 15 cents
- 1 cup of soy milk – 50 cents
- 1 cup of frozen mango – 75 cents
- Spinach up the wazoo – 75 cents (I used a LOT)
Total for Green Monster Goodness = $2.15
That’s expensive for a homemade GM, but very inexpensive compared to any fresh smoothie you can buy from Booster Juice or Jamba Juice.
I had it along with my last toasted whole wheat and flax bagel with cream cheese:
I think the bagel and cream cheese probably cost about 75 cents, bringing this entire breakfast to $3.00. One of the more expensive breakfasts in my repertoire, but a nice change! It was great to get those greens in.
Well, it’s another rainy day here in T.O. Did you hear we had an earthquake yesterday?!!? I was on my computer at work (where you can find me, 98% of the time!), and my monitor began to shake. In my five years of working here, I have never had it shake. Then I noticed the floors were shaking and I could hear a rattling sound. I went into the hallway and my coworkers were scrambling out of their offices. We were all half freaking out/half giddy with excitement. It was actually kind of fun! I know, I shouldn’t say an earthquake is fun, but it was a nice little diversion from the usual office routine. But no more, please and thank you.
Also, the G20 summit is taking place in downtown Toronto this weekend! The fun is just not stopping here in Southern Ontario! 🙂 I live on the outskirts of eastern Toronto, so I shouldn’t be affected too much. Tomorrow is a half day at work (holla!) and then on Saturday we are driving up to my in-laws. There will be “rolling closures” on the major highways, so I hope we don’t get stuck in one of those! Aside from that, I am hunkering low. You will find me in my basement, covered in blankets, watching re-runs of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.
