Since it's school holidays my sleeping patterns have been so out of whack, i've been going to bed like past 12 and waking up after 8 most days which is so unlike me usually it's like 9 to bed and wake before 6. Anyway that's beside the point, today was a very luxurious Sunday morning, I rolled out of bed around 9 and mum decided to make breakfast (yeah!).
She somewhat altered (okay altered quite a bit, she can never make a recipe without adding her own bits in) the banana-pecan pancake recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance. She used spelt flour and flaxseed oil and almond meal and i don't know what else, then we topped them with the most delicious mango, it was such a treat and soooooo delicious.
I was extra tired all day because last night i was up till around 3 watching JUNO with commentary. This dvd was a christmas present from my cousins because they know how much i love it. I'm just in love with the dialogue it's so witty and fresh and ellen page and michael cera do such a great job, the commentary which was by the director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody was really interesting.
Before my midnight viewing of that film I spent a very relaxed night watching La Vie En Rose (a French film about the life of the French singer Edith Piaf) and reading East of Eden by John Steinbeck, it's my first novel by Steinbeck which is kind of weird because you'd think I'd choose of men and mice cause it's probably his most famous, but I'd thought I'd give this one a try i have no idea why.
I just realized that wasn't a very food-y post so I'll quickly mention that I'm planning to try the Edamame Three-Bean Salad from Skinny Bitch in the Kitch today sometime and hopefully bake something absolutly decadent and fabulous as well, which I will post about tomorrow. I'll leave you all with one of the many awesome quotes from Juno and the wish that you all have an amazing day.
You should've gone to China, you know, 'cause I hear they give away babies like free iPods. You know, they pretty much just put them in those t-shirt guns and shoot them out at sporting events ~ JUNO
