Of course I typed “food massage” the first time around
MAN do my feet hurt! Yesterday I wore tennis shoes to work (which I generally find more comfortable than my Dankos on the slippery, flour-coated bakery floor) but since my feet hurt yesterday, I switched to my Danskos – and my feet (and legs) are still killing me! No way I could go for a run right now!
After my 12-hour shift, I walked home because I wanted to get a head start on dinner while Matt closed down the store. We had a fantastic day!!
Dinner didn’t need too much prep though. We planned another simple 10-minute affair knowing tonight would be a late one.
I’ve said it before, but my biggest way to get healthy meals on the table – even on busy days – is to have ingredients in your fridge. The only time we swing towards take-out is if the fridge is already empty. Otherwise take-out takes more effort (i.e. leaving the house) than a quick meal! But so long as I have some veggies (and really frozen/canned will do in a pinch), I can make something nutritious.
Tonight’s dinner was a sardine salad with pita and carrot chips along with a stir-fry of mushrooms, broccoli and leftover sweet potatoes. I smothered my veggies in some Dr. Pete’s Praline Mustard Glaze and Matt smothered his in sriracha.
The sardine salad was just leftover maple-smoked sardines mixed with mayo, mustard, cajun spices and sriracha. Just like tuna salad – but even healthier!
On the side we had a home-brewed hard cider a friend brought over. Interesting flavors in this bottle, but we liked it!
Nightly clementine for dessert! Such an excellent palate cleanser!
Longest day of the week is done and done!
