Fake it ‘till you make it...

 

If you follow me on twitter, then you know that I had a SEVERE case of Monday’s today. So instead of blogging about today, I thought I would tell you guys about last Friday :)

Last Friday started out with:

Whipped Gluten Free Oats with classic toppings

In the mix: 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup milk, 1/3 cup Bob’s Red Mill gluten free oats, whipped with 1/2 banana and topped with 1 tbsp. brown sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Classically delicious :)

Then I hopped off to work with an anomaly on my head:

wear red 010 

Wavy hair!!

A few weeks ago, when I was in Wilmington, I went to my hair stylist and had her chop off 10 inches. Remember how long it was?! This is the second time I have donated to Locks for Love, and I was more than happy to do it. I have STICK STRAIGHT hair. It takes an entire canister of hair spray  to hold even a hot roll! So Thursday night I tried something new. I took my shower that night and slept with my hair in little twists. Much to my surprise, it came out all twisted!! AND stayed in all day. (Can you believe it Alex??!!)

Work was work. We had arranged for an artisan to come visit from Uganda, and she was finally flying in on Friday!! Her name is Ninah and works with an artisan group named Uganda Crafts 2000 Ltd, and we’ve carried their crafts for years. It has been SO amazing meeting and spending time with her. No days off for two weeks, but ehhh…it’s part of the job.

After work I came home to the best cheeseburger:

wear red 026

Cheeseburger Dog!!! Gluten Free and Frugal :)

Yes, gluten free buns are expensive! SO…when Parrish wanted to have hot dogs and hamburgers in the same week, I had to get creative…because there was NO WAY that I was going to buy GF hot dog and hamburger buns. Uh uh. Not happenin’. So I asked Parrish to make my burger…dog shaped. And they came out perfectly! Parrish used a meat grinder my Dad bought us, and ground sirloin steak for the patties. Tasty :)

Your wavy hair looks great Marlow! I tried that sleeping on twisting hair thing once. Yeah, I twisted too much and I looked like a deranged poodle! So glad it worked out for you.

Wow, that bread looks sooooo good. If it's corn free and soy free as well as gluten free, I'll take it! :-)

LOVE the wavy hair. And, you've inspired me to whip my oats tomorrow. Sounds good :)

1. Love the hair. You can also braid it when wet and let it dry.

2. I've really come to like burgers w/o a bun. Never found a good GF bun. Too fat (I'm looking at you, Seattle), too crumbly...plus less sugar/carbs. Usually, the GF "English muffins" (quotations because they don't taste like them) make excellent burger buns.

3. I am giving up on Bob's oats...I follow the directions to the letter, but they are always soupy and soggy.
