THIS sunrise. I snapped this picture after I got home from 6am bootcamp. If the sweat dripping down my face and muscle shaking workout wasn’t a reward in itself, catching this sunrise definitely made dragging myself out of bed at dark o’thirty worth it. I will always stand by the fact that sunrises >>> sunsets.
Smoothies. I can’t get enough of them. I know most of the country is under a blanket of snow and dealing with below freezing temps and I hate to rub it in, but the weather in Santa Barbara has been SUPREME. Like so supreme, it has been appropriate to go the beach practically everyday since Christmas. #whatdrought. Anywho, this smoothie-in-a-bowl was a mix of papaya, mango, yogurt, and almond milk topped with sliced naners, loads of granola and peanut butter.
Besides this blog, another thing I have been neglecting is my dearest beloved sourdough starter. Don’t fret, I was still feeding fluffy muffy weekly to keep her alive, but I have been seriously slacking on my bread making! I truly missed the smell of tangy sourdough coming out of the oven and my stomach missed those thick slices of crusty bread. I think it is time to rekindle my love of bread making.
After my bread making quota was filled for the week, a couple of my friends and I headed up the coast to Jalama for a little day trip.
Reason number 234587684569 million why I love the central coast. I will seriously never get bored with views like this. Jalama wasn’t exactly bikini friendly the way Santa Barbara has been recently, but nonetheless, strolling the beach and taking in the beautiful view was just as satisfying.
For Christmas one of my roommates got me a CSA box. Ummm, I know, how perfect/thoughtful/awesome is that present? I got my first delivery and the box was filled to the brim with romaine, spinach, chard, spaghetti squash, leeks, carrots, oranges, apples, AND kiwis. ALL THE PRODUCE! I have since eaten up all the fruit, squash, and some of the greens, but I need inspiration with the leeks and chard?
