Man was today full of surprises. Not the good kind!
We discovered [luckily early] that our IKEA tables are the wrong height! I think this is probably my fault, and I feel terrible. We think we will be able to exchange them for the right size within a week’s turnaround, and IKEA has been truly nice thanks to Caroline at the Baltimore store. I had to rush home to scan a form back to them at the last minute.
There is still so much to do this week to get the store ready for opening – we have to submit a video to Great Harvest 3 weeks before to allow them time to make travel plans to come help with opening, so that’s why this week is such a scramble. Hopefully the next three will be a bit calmer!
Our countertops look awesome, but I left my camera at home so you’ll have to wait to see them!
I ate an awesome Alliebar at the bakery at 5PM in-between interviews. We’ve got such a great team in the making! In the midst of our crisis, these guys put smiles on my face. The Alliebar was delicious and took away most of my dinner appetite.
On the menu: Frittata!!
Matt poured a beer when he got home, and stole some sips. This is the Big Boss Wit beer that was gift from KERF reader Win, who brought it by the bakery this weekend from one beer lover to another. Thank you Win, it was delicious!!
We started on our quick + easy dinner. Now that things are more hectic, we like dinners that take 15 minutes or less to make
First, grill asparagus
Then preheat an oven-safe pan on the grill
Then mix an egg mixture together to pour on top of chopped grilled asparagus
- 4 eggs
- 1/3 cup cooked wheatberries
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
- Pinch salt
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
Put asparagus in pan with some oil and then pour on egg mixture
Move to top shelf (or turn heat way down) and close lid
It’s done when the egg is done!
Boy oh boy was this good!!
The nutritional yeast added just the right cheesiness (would you believe that for a moment I thought: no cheese, this is a vegan frittata! Whoops!) and the sunflower seeds + wheatberries added a great CHEW! Springtime asparagus is just delicious.
We didn’t serve anything with it because neither of us were very hungry.
Plus we had beer!
I went into the basement for a sparkling water and came up with a splash of IPA. I LOVE IPAs now!!
After dinner we went on a business walk. Around here, it’s all business all the time. But that’s OK because we’re getting stuff done as we live. Soon we hope to be back to our normal lives, if that even is possible! Our walk was 30 minutes around our neighborhood in a nice spring evening.
Once home and settled into my computer work, I got hungry. Blame the smallish dinner!
I cut into a big ole pineapple and enjoyed it with a dollop of yogurt, some coconut butter crumbles and a piece of dark chocolate. Now that’s what I call dessert!
Gossip Girl finale is on tonight, isn’t it?! It will have to wait until tomorrow!
