Learning to survive

Happy Monday, friends. I hope your weekend was splendid...mine looked like this.

It rained alllll weekend. We barely got out of the house. 

It was a welcome break, though. 

I watched Lincoln (snooze) and old episodes of Survivor.

Did you know that there have been approximately 26 seasons of Survivor? Truth. Mr. Right is a big fan so, naturally, I've become addicted. I also tend to think I'd kick ass and last the full 40 days when, in fact, I would probably throw in the towel after a day of eating only rice and sleeping on bamboo. But, I like thinking about how I would prepare myself if I were on the show. This is what I've got so far:

Learn how to build fire.

Learn how to build shelter. Preferably a two-story treehouse, but I'm not picky.

Learn how to climb trees. Like a boss.

Learn how to hunt and fish. Also like a boss.

Other skills I'd need to work on:

Lying better.
Running faster.
Eating less.

I'll start working on those now and by the time they're on Season 100, I'll be ready to roll.

Let's be honest, I have a hard time waiting for breakfast in the morning. But a girl can dream, right?

Since I can't imagine a day without food, let's talk about it.


I've been putting it on, in, and next to pretty much everything. 

Sauteed with some chicken sausage?


Mix it with rice & beans and leftover pork?

Yes, please.

If I ate many sandwiches, I'd put it on them too.

So, just be aware that you'll be seeing a lot o' green in the near future.

Also, I grabbed grub from the Whole Foods breakfast bar the other day and came across this sweet potato chicken hash (next to my egg white/huevos rancheros mixture).

Truthfully, it looked better than it tasted because I'm fairly certain it was made with soy sauce or something similar that just tasted out of place to me.

But, I will definitely be trying to replicate something like this soon.

Otherwise, my weekend eats were supremely uninteresting. Hopefully that will change this week. Good news, I'm going out of town for the weekend, so I will most likely come back with some vacation eats, which are the best and most naughty. Something to look forward to!
