I don’t usually go out for fancy drinks, but tonight’s one of those nights. Yay for Margarita Day! Apparently, it’s actually a real holiday and I’ve been seeing it all over the Internet. No idea who made declared it such, but I’m not complaining. 🙂
I’m the driver tonight so I only get one drink, but I’m still so excited to see my girlfriends. After being out with Paul and all of his friends on Friday, I’m in dire need of lady time. Anyone else having a margarita tonight?
This is one of the most random lunch bowls ever. In the mix are black beans, peas, orzo, spinach and feta. You know what? It was actually really tasty. I need to incorporate more beans in my lunches. They fill me up.
What would lunch be like without some veggies? Well, it just wouldn’t be my lunch! In the mix, I have tons of spinach, red bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, green olives, zucchini and parmesan cheese. I stick to feta usually, but the parmesan was pretty good too.
On the side, I had some string cheese and apple slices.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the earthquake that occurred yesterday in New Zealand. It was 6.5 and has killed at least 60 people. Earthquakes really freak me out because:
1. You can’t really predict them
2. They can do a ton of damage, kill thousands and cause tsunamis
3. I’ve already experience one, and it was a 6.4.
I was with my immediate family on the island of Lefkada in Greece. We were all forced to sleep in one room, with my brother pretty much sleeping on the dresser since there was no room. Now I’m thankful we were all together.
The weird thing was that I woke up a couple minutes before the quake. I remember when it started how scared we all were. I was only 14 at the time, but immediately, I knew what was going on. I think we all did. Rather than still in the room, as we saw the walls starting to crack we took off and ran outside the hotel room and down the stairs. It seemed like forever, but I think the earthquake only lasted 30 seconds.
After it ended, we had a ton of aftershocks, which were just as scary. My dad decided we needed to get off this island as soon as possible, so we packed up all of our stuff, and drove to the nearest port. We ended up seeing huge boulder in the street on the way there, and huge cracks in the streets. A couple hours later, we were off Lefkada, but the memory of that earthquake sticks with me.
Have you ever been in an earthquake or another natural disaster? How do you eat black beans? Any good recipe ideas? Anyone else going to be watching America’s Next Top Model tomorrow?
