If you didn’t notice, my lunch was kinda light. Two parts instead of my usual 3-4. I’m trying to just eat until I’m satisfied and not full.
Which sounds fun, but not even an hour and a half later I was feeling a little hungry again! I tried to hold out until 2 hours and then had my apple.
Juicy and cold – mmmm. I forget how much I really love eating apples out of hand.
Another hour later hunger was still hanging around! This is why I am not a grazer – I just can’t get satisfied on little portions. So I chose my next snack as my tried-and-true filler-upper
Yogurt + cereal. Perfecto!
Had this at 3:30 and wasn’t hungry again for 3+ hours. And I had an appetite for dinner!
Speaking of dinner, it rocked!
And the bun was replaced with some Trader Joe’s cornbread that we made back in April and froze. One of my most successful and useful frozen items ever! 60 seconds in the microwave and it’s perfectly hot again.
The highlight of dinner was most definitely the OKRA. I love okra, but I have never eaten it in whole form. My gosh, talk about delicious!!! I love the delicate shell of okra and the oozy inside with a slight crunch and a big mouthfeel.
We tossed it in a tsp of canola oil and rubbed on some creole seasoning (which makes everything better) and roasted it in the oven at 400* for about 20 minutes.
SO DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO LOCAL! Can’t wait to get more at the market this weekend!
I left about 25% of my burger and a bite of cornbread for Matt –
I worked hard all afternoon on my consultations. They are quite time consuming, but also fun because it’s my favorite topic and I know I’m helping others in the process. I worked straight until 5:00 and then broke for this:
The only way I could get him to join me was the promise of a shoulder massage!
I’m off to watch episode #2 on disc 3 of season 1. I feel like this weekend was earned with a few days of hard desk work.
Tomorrow Matt‘s working and we’re helping our friends Michelle and Ben move into their new house – just 2 miles away! The rest of the afternoon is marriage time since I have been traveling so much I feel like we haven’t spent much time together!
