Good morning and happy Tuesday!
Warning: no cats were hurt in the making of this blog post.
Did anyone else’s Monday feel like a Tuesday? Yeah, that’s a weird feeling.
I write my posts at night and queue them up to post early the next morning; I got stuck working on a project for work, so I’m going to need to keep this post short.
My Monday was pretty great! It was a good, productive day that just kind of flew by.
For breakfast, I had an avocado with a sprinkling of salt on top. For lunch, I enjoyed a large salad with just a spinach base. I like spinach, but oh did I miss my romaine. What is it about romaine that I love so much?!
This salad included: baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, an apple, a clementine, feta cheese, chia seeds, croutons, and balsamic vinaigrette dressing. (I opted to skip the mango salsa as I figured it wouldn’t be enough to combat the spinach).
After work, the Boy and I headed over to Costco for our weekly trip. I desperately needed salad fixins! We also grabbed some dinner while we were there.
When we got home, I resumed working on my project. Eventually it was snack time, so I thought I’d whip up a smoothie.
Once again, I did not like the recipe. Although, I’m 90% certain I cracked the smoothie-fail case…I don’t like cashew milk in smoothies! I like cashew milk, but I don’t seem to like it in my smoothies.
I think this recipe would have totally worked, had I had used water or coconut water- which I will be trying this week. This recipe included: baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, clementine, chia seeds, frozen pineapple, and cashew milk.
And, a couple random things to round things out…
I tend to make a squeaky noise after I sneeze. I sneezed yesterday and (because my abs were still on fire from Sunday) it hurt. It made my soft squeak turn into a LOUD shriek. Luckily I was in my car alone because it sounded like that of a dying cat.
And, is it weird that all I could think about while this was playing was “more cowbell”?!
I cut up my first ever rotisserie chicken today. Of course I’ve eaten them before, I have just never prepared it. Ohmigosh! That was traumatic! I’m not sure why, but it was. I’ve always eaten chicken, and I’m pretty sure I always will, but… 😦
