sounds like a deal to be made with the devil.
you guys. i’m going craaaaaaaaaazy!! no like really, i thought my taste was coming back but today it decided to do a disappearing act again all day except for one meal, which was lunch, but by the time 3 PM came any bit of tasting ability was gone again.
i suppose i will tell you what i ate, even thought i couldn’t taste it.
so let’s see how the rest of my day yesterday looked, i can’t remember:
times these grapes by about seventeen. no really.
oikos, PB2, cereal mess
i bet this tasted good!
ummmmm… i think i took a nap? yeah i did, because marshall walked into my house and woke me up on the couch and i had no idea if it was morning or night or what day it was or if i was supposed to be at work. i panicked slightly.
i ended up thinking i might be able to taste fuji+ naturally more PB
no such luck.
i had a few other unpictured items not worth talking about since i couldn’t taste them. i think i went a little insane because i started tasting everything around me to see if i could taste it. and i couldn’t taste any of it. and i wasn’t even hungry, but i became obsessed with trying to taste. and i ate a whole lot more than i should have. shoot.
then marshall and i watched the latest episode of true blood and i went to bed WAY past my bedtime, again.
breakfast=chocolate protein oats
okay, couldn’t taste this. can you tell i am really a bit ornery from the whole not being able to taste issue? because i am.. it is irritating and talking about food isn’t even fun when you can’t taste it. sorry to be such a negative nancy.
so that brings me to the one thing i could taste today, AND IT WAS AMAZING! i think i have a new favorite combo! it came about because i just needed to use up some stuff in the work fridge.. this is how it went down:
cottage cheese+garbanzo beans+ a little hidden valley ranch seasoning
you guys! this WAS SO FREAKING DELICIOUS! i don’t know if it was because i could actually taste it or if it is just genius, probably both.. but how simple is that 3 ingredient lunch? and it has protein and carbs and fiber and is fabulous. i dare you to try it.
i also had some veggies & hummus
polished off the last of the hummus, i am going to make my own in my new food processor!
guess what i did after work? well, first i ate some food i couldn’t taste..
and a bowl of unphotographed mixed cereal. and a graham cracker square. and a slice of bread. and a calcium chew. i couldn’t taste any of it.
then i took a 4 hour nap.
and then i woke up, had 1/2 a turkey, cheese & mustard sandwich on wheat.. couldn’t taste it.
my bestieeee kristen moved back home from arizona! she has lived there the past couple years, she is going to PT school. i am sooo glad she is back! i went to see her apartment and we went to hires for ice cream.
WHY. WHYYYY. WHY?! why did i get ice cream if i couldn’t taste it?! i would like to know where in my sick mind i decided it would be a good idea to stuff my face with an oreo shake when i couldn’t taste it in the least bit.
sigh. whatever. i ate it.
now i am home.
this post is a downer! i probably should not even have written it.. haha.. sorry kids. just one of those days! but on the upside i am blogging with penelope jane on my lap and randall bernard to my left. dogs make everything better. and my roommates are home eating popcorn doused in cock sauce. i am not going to try my luck at tasting it.
but it is good that i posted because i did need to share my fabulous new favorite concoction of garbanzos+cottage cheese+ranch.. i need to think of a name for it because i see lots and lots of this mixture in my future!

marshall is out of town this weekend, it is a good reason to
catch up on sleep get things done.
1. gimme your hummus recipe. i need a good one to make this weekend!!
ok, not really a question but i know you hummus makers out there have some good recipes up your sleeve!
2. have a simple, delicious 2 or 3 ingredient dish? what is it?
my new fave is obv the one i talked about above! sometimes the simplest things taste the best!
3. favorite yogurt mix in?
i am torn between peaches, PB2 and cereal. indecisiveness at it’s best!
the questions may be equally as lame as this post, oh well… ya win some ya lose some! everyone send my taste buds good vibes and hope that they work tomorrow!
