Acorns Everywhere

on November 30, 2011

Geez Louise, it’s been a while since I wrote a new post. My Thanksgiving break turned out to be crazy busy. Even though my meeting with Turner had to be rescheduled (don’t worry, the new date is already official) AG sure needed me. I worked on all day on Black Friday. I got home at 6:30 and was so tired that I made myself a smoothie and passed out by 9:30. It was pitiful. My mom kept asking me if I was okay. I guess my body just needed some sleep because I felt great the next morning. However, I was extremely disappointed with my Saturday work schedule because my shift started right as the UGA/GT game began. My family had a bunch of friends over and I had to miss it all. At least I made some money, right? I worked again on Sunday and made my way back to Athens on Monday.

Tonight I made myself a delicious dinner before work at Yoforia. I bought an acorn squash over the break, but never used it. I decided to roast it tonight for dinner by simply adding some cinnamon and leaving it in the oven for about 45 minutes. The texture was perfect, but the flavor was off. It wasn’t as sweet as I remember it being in the past. In fact, next time I’m going to add a tomato sauce and treat it like spaghetti squash.

On the side I made a simple salad with beets and hearts of palm. I’m addicted to these salad toppings. The memories of me eating hearts of palm by the can while just a wee kindergartener will always remind me of my non-normalness. My parents ruined my chance of fitting into mainstream society by introducing me to things like hearts of palm, black olive tapenade, lobster, and clams when I was a youngster. Once a foodie, always a foodie. Now I’m back from work and am pretty wide awake. All I have to do tomorrow is go to the gym and attend my 2:30 class, so I’m letting myself stay up for a fit while sipping on sleepytime tea. I hope this stuff kicks in soon.
