I woke up this morning thinking I am SO GLAD the weekend is almost hear. Today was just one of those days I really didn’t want to go to work and wanted to stay in bed….but, I didn’t like the good worker bee.
I have been so indecisive when it comes to breakfast lately so I took the easy way out. I started off with 2 cups of watermelon and cantaloupe.
Quaker Oatmeal Squares. I LOVE these brown sugar oaty squares. I only had about 1/3 of this bowl though because they made the announcement that Farmer’s Market Friday was today instead (yeah!!!!)
I dipped my melon & squares in a little Trader Joe’s 0% Honey Greek Yogurt ~ Delish and easy! I had some decaf watered down Starbuck’s coffee in my running bunny cup and some water (forgot my Nathan Bottle).
I stocked up my plate when they made the Farmer’s Market announcement and figured I’d trade in my morning snack. I started off with some super sweet and crunchy yellow tomatos & blueberries.
With 1/2 a slice of homemade cinnamon bread with HOMEMADE BUTTER! I had to try the butter when I found out it was homemade. Wow, it was amazing ~ it’s so much creamier and sweeter. I “almost” wanted to make my own after trying this.
Then, to balance out all my “sweetness” I had a little pistachio salt. I have really been lovin’ pistachios lately ~ I need to eat more!
I saved my nectarine for later but did drink this interesting Simply Fruit Juice ~ It was 100% Orange & Mango Juice. So good, I bet it would make fantastic spritzers although some of my co-workers wondered where the Vodka was 😀
It was another one of my co-worker’s birthdays today so we all headed out to celebrate at TR2 Mexican Food ~ I LOVE this place!!! I was sorta bummed because I was really looking forward to my Spicy Sweet Potato/Black Bean Taco salad but I guess I have lunch tomorrow now.
We dined Al Fresco ~ It was the perfect day in the high 70’s outside. We all agreed that it made us not want to go back to work at all.
We had chips & salsa to start. I was really good this time and didn’t pig out on the entire bowl. I savored a few and worked on drinking water. I had an entire glass downed before our food came out.
I really “thought” about venturing out today, but, I just LOVE their tacos so much that I ordered two – Chicken & Shrimp ~ Mexican Style (with avocado, cabbage, onion, cilantro, hot sauce and cheese).
The shrimp comes on a homemade flour tortilla
and oozes with hot sauce ~ SO GOOD!
The chicken comes on two homemade corn taco shells. I LOVED them both so much that I couldn’t decide which one I liked best.
I ordered them a la cart without beans or rice and it was the perfect amount of food. I also managed to down another cup of water too.
Lunch today was really informative for me ~ I learned about ways to be greener! I never even thought about straws until my co-worker said that she NEVER uses them because they are a waste. You use it once and toss them which is a total waste. I NEVER thought of that.
I think the next thing I learned amazed me even more. So, we have our regular trash can, a recycle trash can and a green waste trash can. I always thought that the GREEN WASTE was for grass, bushes, etc. I NEVER knew that you can also COMPOST in it. So when I got home, I check our green waste trash ~ check it out ~ it actually says it on the lid.
So cool ~ I LOVE discovering new ways I can be greener and better for Earth!
I honestly had no desire to cook at all tonight. I was glad when The Husband requested BLT’s ~ fast, easy and delish.
I smooshed an avocado and spread it on a piece of toasted Country White Wheat Bread (his bread). Sprinkled with a little freshly ground black pepper.
Add “fun” yellow/green heirloom tomato slices.
Plus lettuce, TJ’s 97% fat free turkey bacon and romaine. It was such a good dinner and totally satisfying.
I am not sure about my posting schedule this week since I haven’t been prepping my posts the night before or during lunch. I may post just once a week for the remainder of this week since I am not feeling it. Maybe I need a little break or maybe it’s the need to enjoy the last bit of summer, but, I will post at least once a day when I get home if not sooner.
You can always follow me on Twitter as I will be updating with my 150 words whenever I get the chance. Thanks for reading and all the comments ~ I LOVE each and everyone of them.
Off to relax & read my book ~ Nite all!
