Saving Room

August 14, 2011

Matt and I did a whole lotta nothing this morning. We had plans for a walk, but that just never happened. Instead we made plans to go on a few outings this afternoon, including getting Matt a new phone. He’s eligible for an upgrade and is using my iPhone 3G from years ago. Time for him to become a Droid!

We just finished a light lunch, partly because we weren’t entirely hungry yet but are ready to leave the house, and partly because I’m saving room for a snack – either a yogurty snack or a popcorny snack!

Leftover tomato salad (so good with garlic gold as a seasoning!!)

Well I’m still in the stone age using my Razr (which magically entails no cell phone bill). Don’t think the 3G is ancient!

I just watched HP7 (Part II) last week, not in 3D though. It did not disappoint :)

I <3 popcorn! Go with that for the snack and enjoy the movie! I haven't seen it yet but I demolished the book in two days. I didn't sleep at all and it was worth it :D

You really can’t go wrong with either one of those snacks!

P.S. Last night, I went to an amazing restaurant, which used all fresh/organic/local/sustainable foods. I kept trying to figure out what it was about the meal that I enjoyed so much. It finally dawned on me late last night–it was all REAL food.

Yes, there was butter, cream, and cheese. No “light” margarine or “fat free” salad dressing. Perhaps, it wasn’t considered “healthy” by everyone’s standards, but it was 100% clear that the food was all simple ingredients with an elegant twist. It totally reminded me of you and your blog :)

Your lunch put my lunch of PB&J to shame. I wish I’d had that salad! Looks so good.

I love tomatoes and cucumber salad. I am so glad you wrote this because I completely forgot earlier today that this was going to be our veggie for dinnertime. I was planning a trip out to get something else!

Just curious – What do you like about the Droid instead of the iPhone? I had a droid for a year but I hated it…I love my new iPhone 4 way better!! I found the droid very confusing, but so many people I know love the droid! I just don’t get it..I’d be interested to see what you like about it! :)

Everything! So much easier to multitask and use gmail, star, archive, label, google calendar, swipe text and more!

I still haven’t seen HP7 yet either. (I’m waiting for my husband to return from his deployment, so we can see it together.) I hope y’all enjoy it!*

Love the napkin? (or perhaps placemat?) you used in these photos. I also have to say that I love the changes you’ve made to the look of your blog. Very organic. :)

That salad looks tremendous! What is garlic gold? Question: do you only drink water/beer/wine? I never see any dairy and am wondering if that is why your skin GLOWS flawlessly? I’m trying to up my water consumption! Lazy mornings are the best. Today, I rolled over and went back to bed. Nothing like sleeping in on a Sunday to the sound of light summer raindrops. Enjoy the phone shopping (I still have an old iphone 3G – almost three years and still works!)

22 KathEats August 14, 2011 at 6:08 pm

I don’t really drink milk often – I prefer it in cereal or oatmeal. I eat a fair amount of dairy though! Lots of yogurt and cheese. I only buy organic yogurt + milk (hormone free). I think my skin likes Bare Minerals make up!!

Now all I can think about is how much I want a slice of Cville crunch with almond butter. That looks like heaven on a plate!

Enjoy HP7!

The cville crunch looks awesome, I just love hearty bread!

I’m a HUGE harry potter fan, started reading the books since I was 11 and I’ve been keeping up with them ever since! I hope you like the movie, as an avid harry potter reader I was a little critical of it, but realistically they did a great job with the film! Hope you enjoy!

26 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga August 14, 2011 at 2:45 pm

I have never read or seen anything to do with Harry Potter. I know, I’m sure Im the only one on the planet who hasnt gotten into the HP craze! Hope you have fun!

And good luck with Matt and the new phone. Eligible for upgrades…always a fun thing to take advantage of :)

That salad looks great. There is one thing that would go great with it that I don’t remember you mentioning in your posts. That is grilled GH breads. My friends all think I am a grilling genius because I thick slice some Cheddar Garlic or Honey Whole Wheat, brush it with a little olive oil and then put it on a hot gas grill for a couple minutes on each side until it is nice and toasty. I serve it as a side dish with summer salads and chicken and burgers, almost anything off the grill, and everyone just oohs and aahs. You have to try it and then pimp it at the store. It is a great way to serve your breads!

Mmmm. I love grilled bread, but I also love it raw and doughy!

You will have to share what phone he went with! I am a mac girl, and have been using a blackberry curve for years. I assume I will go with a new iphone when it comes out so I can sync effortlessly… BBs are not very mac friendly I find!
I agree with an above commenter, I love the new header! Looks great Kath!

I’d go for the popcorny one with some HP7!

I’m curious what Droid phone Matt will get! I’m wanting to upgrade to the Incredible 2. I’m also a huge Droid fan over the IPhone… Mostly because of all the Google syncs! It’s just more conducive to my life.

Did you use any vinegar on that tomato salad?? Only asking because Garlic Gold is just oil based right? I love garlicy vinegar dressings with tomatoes :)

39 KathEats August 14, 2011 at 6:09 pm

Samsung Inspire!

Yes, it was just the oil plus salt and pepper. He didn’t use a ton of oil – but it spreads nicely.

We just saw HP7.2 last night! It was very good. Hope you guys enjoy it!

I also have to ask, do you make your own almond butter or what kind/brand do you like?

This was Naturally Nutty Vanilla AB that we got from our bakery. I love their AB! I have made my own too though – check out my recipes page. The pumpkin spice is delicious
