colorful & summery

i haven't really felt like posting, or cooking lately.  tonight i wanted something easy, satisfying, and light & summery to match the southern heatwave.  i decided to make a surimi salald and stuff it in a pita.  i pretty much threw things in as i went along, not measuring anything, and it ended up delicious, although i forgot to pick up some cilantro, which would have made it even better...

this made plenty for 2 servings, and perhaps more than that:
  • package flake-style surimi, shredded
  • large stalk celery, diced
  • 1/3 red onion, diced
  • champagne mango, cubed (the small mangos)
  • couple handfuls raisins
  • some slivered almonds (how precise!)
  • juice of a small orange
  • tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 tsp nuoc mam (vietnamese fish sauce)
  • heaping tablespoon greek yogurt
  • 2? tsp light mayo
  • s & p

wish i had some sorbet for dessert!

i took a half day today... i got up and just wasn't feeling it, and since i had an appointment @ 1, i decided to work until then, and take it easy the rest of the day.  i went to the bookstore and sipped on an iced coffee while reading, called a friend and caught up, and changed into loungepants at 5 =p.  i don't quite feel rested, since what i really need to catch up on is sleep, but i feel a bit more relaxed.  

once again, i'm feeling like i need more friends/more connection.  my nutritionist says it's a sign of where i am in recovery, where just figuring out the food piece isn't enough, and now i need something deeper.  i'm exploring meetup groups (to meet people for a hike or something) but i'm just so bad at pushing myself out there.
