A granted wish

Hey guys! Happy almost weekend! Got anything exciting going on?? I get to see my husband. I’m kinda nervous, I hope he still likes me πŸ˜‰ I’m way excited to take him on a date tomorrow night after our class final.

Before work last night, I busted open a new type of smoothie since I’m out of Vega:


The nutritional info wasn’t too shabby:


So you would think that this powder would be pink from the looks of the packaging, right? Um, not so much. It was the mangiest color of brown I’ve ever seen.

I added some frozen strawberries and almond milk to it in the Vita-mixalicious, which helped to give it a pink color, but it will had murky brown undertones πŸ˜€


The verdict: delicious! Once I got over the color factor, I totally loved it and slurped away happily before heading to the mall πŸ˜€

I got some jeans, 4 shirts and a pink and grey scarf. Success πŸ˜€

Then went to work…

You guys wont believe what was waiting for me when I got there:



Raw vegetable korma with rice and dosa. I can’t even explain how elated I was. I packed it up in a to-go box to munch when I got off work πŸ˜€

Plate of the night:


Cinnamon Trio- panna cotta with fig compote and crumble, cinnamon-spiced brigadiero (a glorious chocolate truffle with a little cayenne), and a ganache-dipper popsicle


Work was bueno but that Indian meal was even bueno-er. I scooped up every last bite of gloriousness with that dosa and went to bed quite happy πŸ˜€

Speaking of Indian food, holler to Rose who celebrated Indian Food Wednesday with an Amy’s samosa, and to our girl GC who is actually going to India. Can you feel my jealousy through the computer screen?! πŸ˜€

Well it’s time for me to start prepping food for tomorrow’s meal! A famous raw foodist is actually going to be one of the tasters. Any guesses on who it might be?? Hint: SHE is one of my absolute favorites and I shrieked a little when I found out she was coming πŸ˜€

Have a great day bloggies!

    I’m soooo jealous of Miss GC too. She’s fabulous and totally deserves this awesome trip!

    I’m guessing Ani Phyo will be tasting your food?!

  4. Lindsey @ Sound Eats on October 1, 2009 at 11:26 am

    My guess is Sarma? She’s a she, a famous raw foodist, I’m pretty sure she’s one of your favorites and I can imagine a shriek elicited over her. πŸ™‚

  5. brandi on October 1, 2009 at 11:34 am

    Have a great day! πŸ™‚

  8. Shari B. on October 1, 2009 at 11:43 am

    What are the chances of that??? Indian food on the day you were wishing for it! Did you run right out & buy a lottery ticket too? πŸ˜‰

    Good luck on your final at school and with the hubster this weekend!

  9. rhodeygirl on October 1, 2009 at 11:49 am

    It’s totally Ani isn’t it? πŸ™‚

  10. Sarah @ The Foodie Diaries on October 1, 2009 at 11:51 am

    omg so jealous of your indian food! none of my friends like it so we never go out to the amazing indian restaurants in NYC… que triste πŸ™

  11. Anne on October 1, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    I so wish you could eat food through the computer. Those plates look delicious! Enjoy your date and good luck tomorrow!

  12. Sarah on October 1, 2009 at 12:17 pm

    I’m glad you liked the Hempshake! I’ve been looking to try some new powders, even though the weather is getting cooler as we speak πŸ™‚ Glad you got to have your Indian food after all!

    Can’t wait to hear about the celeb guest. I’m guessing it is Ani too. Have a great day!

  13. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on October 1, 2009 at 12:26 pm

    Woo hoo for you and the Pilot reuniting, how awesome! And let me guess, is your tester gonna be Miss Sarma? Just a wild guess. Enjoy that Indian food and when I read GC was going to India, I was overjoyed for her. As a yogi, that’s been on my travel wish list for the past decade. With a small child, I can’t be going on any Indian pilgrimages these days, but in a few years yes, I am so there. Good luck on your final days in class!!! Thanks for swingin by my bloggie πŸ™‚

  14. Jocelyn on October 1, 2009 at 12:26 pm

    sarma sarma sarma!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ˜€

  15. JessicaR on October 1, 2009 at 12:27 pm

    Or maybe Natalia Rose?? πŸ™‚ Fingers crossed… I love her books!

  16. Rose on October 1, 2009 at 1:03 pm

    I also had Channa Masala for dinner and then leftovers today! I’m totally into Indian food <3, mostly thanks to you!

  17. Monica on October 1, 2009 at 1:30 pm

    Could be Ani, Sarma, or Natalia? You have turned me on to Ani’s doughnuts, Sarma’s new book, and Natalia’s pumpkin pie yumminess… hmmm…. Maybe all three? Wouldn’t that be the dream team?

  18. Jenna on October 1, 2009 at 1:58 pm

    glad you get to see the pilot soon!

  19. Emily S. on October 1, 2009 at 2:38 pm

    oh wow, maybe Sarma??? excited to find out! have a great Thursday!!

  20. Madre on October 1, 2009 at 3:32 pm

    I’d wish you good luck, but your talent does not need it. You wouldn’t be where you are and doing the amazing things that you are doing without the talent, dedication and passion fueled by the quest for perfection that already surrounds you. May your guardian angel continue to guide you and…great luck as always, Love, Mom and Fam – Hi to Mi hijo

  22. Lisa Aimabale on October 1, 2009 at 3:40 pm
