Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Is anyone else terrified of being in the bathroom/shower in the dark? Just me? I think I’ve seen far too many movies where things go awry when the lights go out in a bathroom. Psycho shower scene? The Roommate? Need I say more?
Anyway, tonight I had just hopped into the shower when ALL of the lights went out! Of course I screamed and shouted at my roommates like a mad woman telling them to “SAVE ME SAVE ME!” Because obviously, someone was trying to kill me. Or maybe it was just a tripped circuit breaker… ya never know.
My knight in shining armor, Meghan, fixed the circuit breaker and I was back to having light in my shower – whew!
Big-Ass Bowl of Stuff
That is exactly what I had for lunch today! I got home from class around 3:30, and was in the mood to use all of my new fruit that I bought yesterday! Into my big-ass bowl went:
  • plain greek yogurt, sweetened with a squirt of maple syrup
  • chopped apples
  • chopped strawberries
  • cocoa roast almonds
  • pretzel crumbs
  • crushed graham crackers

GINORMOUS bowl of greatness!

Kind of a random combo, but SO delicious. It had the perfect salty/sweet balance, and an awesome crunchy texture!

For dinner I was craving something peanut-y, so I decided to make my very own peanut sauce! I’ve been making it for quite a while now, and will occasionally make a more involved peanut sauce, but tonight was all about simplicity and speed. I combined a scoop of peanut butter, some soy sauce, some lime juice, a little water, and mixed it until it was all combined. Sorry for the vague measurements, but it’s much more of an eyeball it/taste it type of thing.

I cooked up some whole wheat spaghetti while roasting broccoli, yellow pepper, onions, and carrots. I threw everything into a big bowl, poured the peanut sauce on it, and topped it with some unsalted peanuts and sesame seeds.

Peanut-y dinnahh

a little closer now..

This is one of my favorite meals – you really can’t go wrong with peanut sauce!

Now I’m off to pack and hang with my roommates for a bit. I’m trying to get to bed relatively early tonight, because I’m off to Orlando tomorrow at the early hour of 8:00am! My plans include two interviews, a Lake Eola run, catching up with my old neighbors, and LOTS of hang out time with my lovely Steph. I can’t wait!

Does anyone else have big plans for the weekend? Would you FREAK if the lights turned off while you were showering!? 😛

  1. I actually like taking showers in the dark – don’t know why. Your peanut sauce sounds just fine and dandy. There is no reason to make it more “involved.” Simplicity always counts for something. Looks yummy!
