Food Porn Returns!

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

I haven't figured out all of the settings and fun stuff on my new camera yet, but at least I was able to get back to documenting my food porn today. Yaaaieeeee!! In addition, you also get some photos of our front yard because I spent some time tackling the post-Winter freshening up today and it's actually starting to look like Spring out there.

You will be pleased to hear that I was a good girl and made it to bed last night by 10:45 (trust me, that's early for me even when FH is home). I read for about 1/2 an hour and admittedly I did turn the TV for a couple of minutes to check the score on the Canucks game, but when I saw that Chicago had tied it up while I wasn't watching I turned it off. Good thing, because the stupid Blackhawks ended up winning. Boooooo. So much for the Canucks sweeping Round 2...slackers. :)

And on with the show....

Breakfast was a simple parfait in a bowl. Liberte Svelt vanilla yogurt, dollop of Liberte blackberry yogurt, chopped fresh strawberries and a heaping handful of Organic Daybreak.

On the side I had some watermelon chunks. I actually ended up transfering these into a container to take in the car with me.

Since I skipped coffee yesterday, I decided to treat myself to a Starbucks double tall vanilla non-fat latte today. I enjoyed this while reading through the latest Chatelaine (hellooooo Jamie Oliver!). Due to the photography hiatus I almost forgot to take a pic of my latte, so here's the almost empty cup!

I had fully intended to go to yoga today (I even emailed a few of the girls!) but when I got back from SB I was inspired to work on our little front lawn. It's all flat and half dead from our terrible Winter. I raked it like a mad woman three times (different directions) and feel confident that I can revive it this week with some new topsoil, grass seed and fertilizer. Poor little lawn!

After that I got into the flower bed and pulled weeds, loosened soil, cleaned up debris, put in the lights, and took pictures of course! Can't wait for the really good weather so we can paint the front porch and get everything looking all glossy and lovely again.

Before I headed outside I made a batch of guacamole. I was short a few ingredients (cilantro and jalapeno) but made due (with cumin and red pepper flakes). I'm really all about the lime anyway.

When I came in from the garden I enjoyed a heaping scoop of my guac, along with a dish of black bean & corn salsa, a dollop of light sour cream and a big serving of Food Should Taste Good mulitgrain chips.

Just look at those little seeds in there. Deeelish.

Now I'm off to find some more activity to make up for the missed yoga class (although the raking certainly burned lots of calories too!) and to scour up something fun for dinner that will be photo worthy. :)
