Rainy Day

2011August 001

Yesterday was a rainy day.

I ate peanut butter pie for breakfast.

I laid in the screened in porch with all three dogs cuddled up next to me and read The Help instead of exercising.

The rain and thunder eventually put us all to sleep.

I ate soft tacos.

I read more of The Help. 

I had a meeting in the afternoon.

Read more of my book.  I just can’t put it down, but it’s so relaxing to just sit and read that I end up falling asleep.

Took another nap.  One of those naps that when I woke up I thought it was morning. 

I ate pulled pork with BBQ sauce and veggies with ranch.

Watched Master Chef and read my book until way too late.

The End.

By the way, I wanted Christian to go home so bad.  He is so rude!


  1. There is nothing quite like reading a book while it is pouring and rainy outside :) One of my favorite things to do, possibly because it always leads to a nap! Hee hee!

  2. Hi, this is random but can you tell me how you make your sweet potato chips (mine never turn out crispy enough) and what do you do with your protein powder to get it soupy like that before pouring it into your oats? I'm a gluten-free, mostly-dairy-free person, too :)

  3. PS I'm the one who wrote "From Muffin Top to Six Pack Abs"...I saw that's one of the blogs you follow :) I haven't updated in a loooong time :)

  4. Hi Rachel! I slice my sweet potato chips with a mandolin and I think that is the key to crispy chips! I spray the tin-foil lined cookie sheet with Olive Oil Pam and then spray the sweet potatoes with that same Pam. Then I sprinkle them with Kosher salt. I cook them at 400 for about 10-15 min, but I keep my eye on them. I let them get a little brown before removing them from the oven. Another key is to let them sit on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes. Any of them that are still a little soft will finish crisping up!

    Protein powder: I put one scoop in a bowl-like cup/mug thing and then drizzle water in stirring constantly until it's a peanut butter consistency. It takes very little water.

    Hope that helps!
