Food Is Greater Than Earthquakes

So,  today I was just sitting in bed, minding my own business, and catching up on your lovely blogs, when suddenly, my bed started shaking.

I’m used to shaking buildings. The house I grew up in is right down the street from a set of railroad tracks. The sound and feeling of a train passing by actually comforts me.  When I moved to Albany, it took me a while to adjust to the absence of  trains passing every 30 minutes.

But the shaking I felt today was not a train. It was an earthquakeThe New York Times reported, “a 5.5 magnitude earthquake struck north of Ottawa…rattling buildings as far away as Vermont, Albany and even New York City.”  Did you feel it?

I called Jeff to tell them that I felt an earthquake and he thought I was crazy. He was in Albany, but didn’t feel it. Honestly, I thought I was crazy, too, until I logged onto Twitter and saw that Times Union and OhSheGlows tweets verified the quake. Yes, I consider Angela a legitimate news source.

So, experiencing an earthquake was probably the most exciting thing to happen to me today…aside from this:

Because, come on, how can an earthquake compete with a breakfast burrito?

It can’t.

I whipped this baby up after my spin class this morning. You’re looking at a corn tortilla stuffed with an egg, a spoonful of refried beans, salsa, and homemade guacamole.

Best. Breakfast. Idea. Ever…Maybe. (I say that a lot!)

So good! I had blueberries on the side.

Sometime between breakfast and the earthquake, I snacked on these:

Baked Scoops and Salsa

After my bed stopped shaking and I called a million people to discuss what had just happened, I decided to make lunch.

Again, that earthquake ain’t got nothing on my veggie burger, watermelon, zucchini, and summer squash.

I ate my “burger” without a bun and topped it with sauteed red onion, tomato, and guac. I roasted zucchini and summer squash in the oven for 12 minutes at 400° to go with it.

At around 5, I had a bowl of cheerios with vanilla almond milk for a snack.

This bowl x 2

Dinner was very colorful…

I made veggie wagon wheel pasta and mixed in corn and edamame. I topped it with Fire Roasted Tomato Sauce and a tiny bit of mozerella cheese.

I brushed an arnold sandwich thin with garlic and basil and broiled it in the oven for one minute. It went well with my pasta.

Dessert was one of these guys:

And now for something completely different


Please watch this video. It will make your day.

Speaking of, have a great Thursday! The weekend is almost here!

  1. That’s wild about the earthquake – yesterday we had sirens go off for a possible tornado (which never happens in Chicago!) which was my excitement of last night, but you definitely have a cooler story to tell!

  2. I felt the earthquake too! I yelled to my boyfriend in the other room that the house was shaking but he hadn’t even noticed it. I found out about the earthquake later that day. Crazy!
