Friday Open Thread : Fooooooood

HELL YEAH FRIDAY OPEN THREAD. I’ve been working like a demon and I’m exhausted AND it’s Shark Week and my face has gone haywire due to hormone flux + Differin “adjusting” my skin’s turnover cycle + I’ve been super busy and I’ve been eating GARBAGE. Not actual literal garbage, but I mean I ordered pizza or Chinese food three times in the span of two weeks [SHAME_BELL.GIF] and each of those orders included French fries, which I horked down like it was a race for my life. Sorry, skin. I’m already doing better! Today I spent an hour making :

This isn’t even my final form.

That’s lightly-sauteed spinach, grape tomatoes, and zucchini, plus fresh cilantro and broadleaf parsley, which later got blended with quinoa and whole wheat orzo, grated romano cheese, a splash of olive oil, and fresh lemon juice. It’s ACES and I’m super pleased with myself.

That’s me on the right. Figuratively. I’m actually sitting down right now.

Enough about me, what about YOU? Cooked or crafted anything interesting this week? Got any noteworthy new additions to the hoard? Big weekend plans? This is where to share!
