prepare for battle

so, the reason work has been a bit stressful lately is that my co-manager, or evening counterpart, is going out of the country for 6 weeks starting today. Today, and the next few days, are going to be espescially busy and hectic. I at least have two awesome highlights tomorrow which will get me through today.
1. my mom is going to be in town for a few hours and she is bringing her ADORABLE NEW PUPPY to come see me at work. Oh, you better believe I will take pictures.
2. I get to finally meet some of my local raw internet friends! yay!
So in preparation for today mostly, but the next couple of days as well I made myself food to last awhile. I made raw thai salad from Aimee's post here. I made it almost exactly the same but I didn't have all the ingredients so my slaw was cabbage, cucumber, mushroom, and carrot. I used braggs like aimee did instead of nama shoyu but I also added the juice of an orange. It is SUPER good! Good call on the mint and basil too... Just like eating the inside of a fresh roll. Next time I may sprout some mung beans to throw in too! I have been eating it just as a salad or wrapped in a cabbage leaf like a taco.
I also made the DELICIOUS chili I love so much but this time added a lot more veggies like corn and carrots. I think it is getting perilously close to tasting like a spicy veggie soup instead of chili now, but it is still good. Today I work at 1030 and I start the night bake. We have a HUGE order today, like the biggest ever and we are starting the bake 1.5 hours early. It will most likely be a long day. I will for sure be bringing a BIG dragon egg nog smoothie along as well.
3 bananas
2 cups of spinach
1-2 T tahini butter
.5t cinnamon
.25 t nutmeg
Although today it will probably have vitamineral green and spirulina instead of spinach cause I am out!

LOL i love the pics in this post. Make me smile.

As for my money crisis... hmm... i havent been dumpstering (but i DO know ALOT about it because my friends are all climbing dirtbags, lol, and they've had to do that all the time.

wait bananas by the CASE? how can i manage to buy that? They don't come in cases at my store? or do i ahve to ask someone about it? because i eat SO MANY FREAKIN bananas a week, its crazy... for two reasons - its the cheapest fruit (but always could be cheaper!) and because they are just so good... they are the base to all my smoothies (at least 3 of them) and they are in all my raw desserts AND I LOVE MONO-MEALING really ripe ones... so basically i eat a lot... so buying by hte case would be amazing if i figured out how...
