How is it 5:00 and I’ve barely knocked a thing of my to-do list!?!? Shesh!
Lunch was amazing. I was planning on a mid-afternoon smoothie so I kept it to a one-dish salad.
Chopped Salmon + Wheatberry Salad:
- 1/2 cup cooked wheatberries
- 1/2 can salmon
- 1 carrot, chopped
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 2 handfuls baby spinach, chopped
- 2 tbsp capers
- 1 tbsp fresh dill
- 1 tbsp fresh basil
- Dressing: half a lemon, 1 tsp olive oil, 1 tsp dijon, 1/2 tsp brown sugar, S+P
Lunch Part II
I met my friend Mercedes for a smoothie around 2:30 – I got the Mangosteen from Smoothie King again. I don’t know if I can ever order anything else! It’s just got this strange tropical kick to it. I love the texture too.
HOW DARE THEY SAY THIS!!!!!!! My loyalty is being questioned!!
On my way home I took a trip to the grocery store for some weekend items and saw ice cream was BOGO free . I can bypass that offer in the winter and spring, but in the summertime, isn’t it a requirement to have ice cream in your freezer!? I used to eat all the slow churned loaded kinds, but have recently switched my ice cream philosophy to all-natural. I got the Neopolitian because I couldn’t decide between vanilla and strawberry (I’m not usually a fruited ice cream person but have been craving strawberry ice cream for some reason). And Mint Chocolate Chip is just unbeatable.
Confession : I LOVE it when you bring ice cream home from the store and it’s all melted on the sides. I’m a big fan of slightly melted ice cream. I took a spoon swipe around the vanilla and strawberry before it went into the freezer
While at the grocery store I also participated in 2 wine tastings , 4 kinds each. Probably had about 4 oz of wine? Yum! It’s hard to pass down free wine samples.
I’m going to try to fit in a quick paper in the next hour before the hub comes home. Then I rented the movie Juno to watch tonight for a relaxing evening in <3
