How’s the weekend so far?
Although I do like writing and talking about myself (I mean, who doesn’t?), I realized I haven’t actually written a lot about me lately (besides yesterday’s flashback).
Anyhow, I thought I would share some of my truths with you, and a lie on the side:
Truth #1: I get bored in yoga sometimes (usually, the teacher is lousy or I’m just feeling lousy in general that particular day)
Truth #2: True friends stab you in he front
Truth #3: I think triangular sandwiches taste better
Truth #4: I yell “STAY” at objects that keep falling over
Truth #5: I hate it when people sit in front of you in the movies and take away your foot rest
Truth #6: I didn’t cry at my mom’s funeral, but I did cry watching “Slumdog Millionaire” (for the record, I feel like i cried a lot when my mom was very sick and tight after she died. I was just a little numb at the funeral and the crowds of people intimidated me.
Truth #7: I new the whole Les Miserables soundtrack when I was eleven.
Truth #8: I have no patience for people extremely in their eating disorder
Truth #9: I am very picky when it comes to dating, my standards are way to high, but they gotta be, right?
Truth #10: I like to eat salads from bowls, not plates
Truth #11: I have a crush on Jon Stewart. Something about his humor, his liberalism, his hair and his “jewness” just makes my heart flutter. Wow, I’m pathetic.
Truth #12: I speak Hebrew fluently and I never lived in Israel, but all Israelis I meet tell me I have no accent. I’m just a really good actress (I do great australian accents and I do “Lois” and “Stewie” from family guy pretty well!).
Truth #13: My first car was named “renee”, my second “benson”, and my current one is called “nelson”. Yep, my current one is male.
Truth #14: I really want to be a vegearian because I love animals and it would look being a yoga teacher and all that, but I don’t think I would last long without chicken, turkey, and fish. I’m vegetarian in sprit, but I lack the no meat will power. I know, I’m weak.
Truth #15: I’m afraid of being “too skinny” and “too fat”. I don’t even know how to define those words and it may be shallow or whatever, but its my truth.
Lie: I love my body (I don’t hate it, but I think its totally ok and normal not to “love it”. For me, being “meh” towards it is good enough).
What are your truths? Or lies?
For the twice baked cinnamon sweet potatoes you will need:
-a sweet potato (or yam, I won’t go into that debate)
-about 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese (or for a vegan version, soy yogurt or coconut milk yogurt)
-1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon
-sweetener of choice (I used stevia, but honey would be good too)
-1/8 tsp baking powder (pretty crucial to make them puff up!)
pierce the potatoes with a fork a few times and bake at 400 degrees for about 30 min or until soft.
Slice down the middle and take out the mushy insides (aka, sweet potato guts).
In a seperate bowl, mix the sweet potato”guts” with the ricotta, cinnamon, sweetener and baking powder.
Refill the potatoes and bake for an additional 15 minuets.
