Mental work is very gratifying. But do not under estimate the happiness that emerges after a day of physical work! As in cleaning, selling, organizing and sorting papers at the bakery. We [Alex, Sarah, Matt and I] closed down the business with a sparkling shine this evening. And it made coming home to relax all-the-more sweeter. Working on a Saturday is different than a Wednesday, but I kind of like it! The whole day is more exciting in general, so that means work is more exciting too. And there’s Saturday night + no plans Sunday to look forward to!
When I got home, I immediately set to work prepping dinner. Since it was already cooked, I had little to do but chop greens, dice mango, cube grilled pork and slice a pre-baked sweet potato.
Once the prep was done, I settled onto the porch with my two favorite magazines and waited for Matt to join me. I used to save magazines for the gym and never read them at home. But since I no longer do reading-friendly workouts (elliptical or stairmaster, for no real reason other than I’ve moved on to different trends like walking with Pregtastic), my magazine stack is HUGE! It never occurred to me to just sit down and read one cover to cover, but I have to say it was pretty fun!
Matt came home and we lounged and had some good conversation over our cocktails. Sparkling H20 with cherry for me, brew for him.
Then we dined! Took all of 5 minutes to assemble this meal!
I tossed our leftover pork with sweet potato and Bone Suckin’ Sauce
And served it over a cup of brown rice (which I made in the cooker last night) and some steamed collard greens, also tossed in Bone Suckin’ Sauce. Mango on top!
We talked on the porch until the sun set and are just now settling down to an episode of the best show ever!
Although…I’m already hungry again! Going to sip water and consider a little
scrumbled crumbled scuffin over yogurt for dessert.
