Hi all ~ I hope you had a fantastic Tuesday ~ my day was awesome. I have been tackling my todo list each day at lunch and today I finally renewed my passport with my new last name. Ok, so it only took 8 months, but, I sent it off – woohoo! Now, we just need to find the next location to go since I need to get some stamps in it! I am thinking warm, tropical…maybe Belize or something. Any ideas??? 😀
This morning I woke up craving oatmeal, so I made up a big bowl of spring oats.
1/2 c Quaker Old Fashioned Oatmeal
1 c water
1 Tbsp Ground Flax Seed
1 nectarine, chopped
Small handful of blueberries
I added the nectarine after I cooked everything in the microwave so it stayed crunchy. But, oatmeal just needs toppers. So I added a big scoop of Low Sugar Organic Apricot Preserves and 1 Tbsp of Freshly Ground Almond Butter.
My oats held me over for about 3 hours and I had a few Salt & Pepper Somersaults for snack. I liked this flavor ~ they taste like spicy and crunchy sunflower seeds. I still think the Chez Chocolate is my favorite flavor out of them all.
I was really undecided today for lunch. I had packed up two options ~ a Don Lee Farms VEGAN burger with all the fixings and Trader Joe’s Black Bean & Corn Enchiladas. The enchiladas won…..
I do not typically buy any frozen meals except Amy’s (LOVE them!) and a few Trader Joe’s meals. I had to check this out because the nutrionals are sensational and the ingredient listing is pretty clean. I wish they chose other wording for the soy (coagulated makes it sound so nasty!)
This might just be the prettiest post micro waved meal I have ever had. I liked the enchiladas ~ they were surprisingly creamy and rich tasting. I’d buy them again.
For my sides I had some crunchy snap peas and a bunch of grapes.
Keeping with my indecisive self all day, I had a few options for my afternoon snack. I had some TJ’s blueberry greek yogurt with blueberries and some Annie’s Bunny Honey Grahams.
After work The Husband and I decided to have an impromptu date night. I LOVE date nights in the middle of the week especially when you have no idea they are happening. He knows I’ve been wanting to see The Proposal since before it came out and finally caved tonight 😀
We stopped for some lottery scratcher’s and a quick sandwich before heading off to see The Proposal. I stepped out of my norm and shared a meatball sandwich with The Husband. I have to admit that although it doesn’t look too tasty, it was surprisingly good.
It was pretty cool that we only had to share the movie theatre with like 3 other people. They were handing out $1 popcorns and free sodas tonight but we didn’t have any since we just ate dinner.
I have to say I absolutely LOVED The Proposal and The Husband did too. I think we both were cracking up pretty much the whole way through. I totally want to live in that house in Alaska – how awesome would that be (other than the coldness & strange daylight hours). It is definitely one of those feel good movies but I can totally seeing myself buying it and watching it when I want to be all sappy 🙂
This week has been pretty crazy busy week so I’ve had to do all in one recap posts for the day. I am hoping by the end of the week I can get back to my regularly scheduled daily routine 🙂
What do you all think is better ~ the all in one recap for my day or 2-3 posts a day? I would love your feedback but I think 2-3 is more fun since I can share more 🙂
Have a great night all ~ See you tomorrow!
