Eye Of The Tiger

There’s really nothing to do with tigers in this post, sorry. But there’s stuff about eyes! So it’s not a total lie.

I massively slept in this morning, which I blame on the change of weather (hello, where did the sun go?) My bowl of oats had to be put on hold, for the quicker option – toasted whole wheat English muffin with peanut butter and raspberry jam.

To counteract the lack of sun, I went with a glass of Happy Planet Mango Peach Party.

Then I put together a quick lunch. It started with leftover chicken & smoked oyster gumbo with hidden brown basmati rice.

Some honeydew melon and strawberries – best summer fruit combo!

With some multigrain corn thins on the side…

I had to leave work a little early today to go to the eye doctor. Well, turns out my left eye has actually gotten ever so slightly worse! Boo-runs 😦 I never really noticed, but when they made me read the chart with my hand covering my right eye, I was like, whoa, where did this blur come from?! Le sigh. I guess it’s just another sign that I’m getting old…or older anyways. It’s not a big enough difference that I will get new glasses any time soon, but I will be getting new contacts.

So even though that part of the day kinda sucked, this part didn’t!

Well hello package from Amazon! I was expecting you 😀

Most of the contents aren’t actually for me – it contains most of my sister’s birthday present. So I can’t show you that just yet 😉 But I did order myself a little something-something, since I was already getting free shipping anyways 🙂

I know, I need another cookbook like a need a hole in my head. But after seeing some fabulous ED&BV creations here and here, I had to break down and order. Plus, the author is from BC, so I gotta support the home team. I’m definitely looking forward to some cookbook reading in my near future 🙂

Now I’m going to go make dinner. And ensure that I put the freakin’ memory card back in my camera!

    I’ve never seen corn thins before. I’m a huge rice cake fan so I’d probably love them. I like my rice cakes with peanut butter, but the avocado and laughing cow blend sounds like a nice change!!

    Cute toes!

    ED&BV is an awesome cookbook. I borrowed it from the library, but I think I may just have to buy it myself!

    I love, love the looks of your gumbo! Drool…..:)

    I had great vision until I got preggers…..I got glasses along with babies! 😉
