Quagmire likes them, too. I don't practice his third strategy of carrot consumption, though. Extremely inappropriate and immature, I know.
I am more than thrilled today, for I do not have school tomorrow, Thursday, nor Friday! Joy! In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I'd like to share one thing I am thankful for.
My family- They are and will always be my life. It's really too hard to try and word how much they mean to me... how much they have shaped my life... how much I love them. My 14 year brother, Nick, is my best friend. He's wise beyond his years. He is an incredibly intelligent and artistic person whom I admire. I know I'm older, but he often helps me through situations with such insight and strength. When we're together, people even think he's older than me. We tell each other everything with the comfort of knowing neither one of us will be judgmental. The term 'unconditional love' is more than appropriate for our relationship. No matter what he does, he will always and forever be the PB to my PB&J. The crunch to my carrot. The bees to the knees. He's my rock!
Is your sibling your best friend?
Anywho, here's what I made La Familia for supper tonight:
Couscous with black beans, zucchini, yellow squash, corn, and my lovely green sauce creation.
The main ingredients of my special sauce were 1 container of 0% greek yogurt, 1/2 can of garbanzo beans, and a few handfuls of spinach.
I sauteed the chickpeas and spinach in some olive oil. I sprinkled them with S&P, garlic salt, chili flakes, and some chopped garlic.
I added the spinach and beans to the blender. I blended them together (not completely smooth) and proceeded to add the greek yogurt. I also added some more olive oil and then let them blend into a bright green goo.
Beautiful. I'm pretty proud of this concoction... my momma loved it! as did I. The amount of protein I managed to get into a simple sauce/dressing makes me a very happy veg-head!
I finished off the meal with far too many 365 animal cookies... and some Dreyer's Cookies&Cream no sugar added icecream, eaten straight from the carton with my brother :)
And without further ado, I present to you my vintage Winter Formal Dress:
I love the detail. So wintery, no?
You likey? I can't wait to get all dressed up, 60's style cat eyes and all...
