PS from yesterday – I ended up having another 16 oz. of water – so the grandest grand total was 128oz! I drank a gallon of water yesterday.
Today was fun. I hung out a friend of mine, PBP, and her boyfriend, we’ll just call him PBP(BF). I’ve mentioned them here. PBP made lunch for us and then we went and saw The Men Who Stare at Goats. It wasn’t spectacular but it was entertaining and funny. Good soundtrack.
If you go back and read that post about PBP and PBP(BF), about halfway through the post I was talking about how the three of us had discussed getting a place together in January – this September I told them I would jump in and do it if they still wanted…they still haven’t talked to me about it. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s full-on and they assume I’m aware, or they don’t want to do it but don’t want to have that conversation with me. To be honest, it’d work out better for me if we didn’t do it – I still don’t have a full-time job and my temping isn’t enough, plus I’d like a few more months to save up money. But a kick in the pants and being pulled out of the nest wouldn’t be a bad thing either. So we’ll see. One of these days I’ll have to bring it up with them again to see where their heads are. It’s kind of an important conversation. Also January will be here in roughly 4.6 seconds, at least it seems like that!
Moving on to more plan-able things!

I’m still working on the water, right now I’ve had 56 but I’ve got a full 16 oz glass sitting next to me. So I’ll update this later. Updated! I drank a few more glasses while watching Pitt beat Notre Dame and Alabama beat Miss. State...so grand total for today is 104oz! And Foodie Girl, I do crave water! Or, it's more like, I get uneasy when I go for too long without drinking any, or if I know I'm eating something really salty. Even though it gets a little boring at times, I love water. And it does wonders for my skin too.
Greta! The veggies and mozz thing was thrown together with no real plan or, skill or anything, really. Since I also made the baked sweet potato, I started baking the sweet potato at 350 for 40 minutes, meanwhile I sliced the eggplant and salted it and let it sit so some of the water could be drawn out. Then after the first 40 minutes was up, I brushed off the salt and squeezed the excess water out of the eggplant, sliced the zucchini and squash (not too thin) and put it in a baking dish and let it cook along with the sweet potato for another 40 minutes. After those 40 minutes went by I grated/sliced the mozz, took the potato and the veggies out, and turned the broiler on – I let the eggplant cook by itself for a few minutes, then added the cheese and put it back in until the cheese was browned. Then I plated the veggies, added some marinara, then added the eggplant slices and a little more mozz.
Next time I will probably grill the veggies rather than bake/broil them. This was good, but I like the taste of them when they’ve been grilled more so than baking/broiling.
