Something Old, Something New

I got in my walk – and it wasn’t even that hot!! A good 3 miles with Better Homes & Gardens. Gosh I love that magazine so much! I’m getting totally obsessive about house stuff. No, we cannot put in new countertops and cabinets right now!! But my gears are still crankin’. Even with little décor. I’m tempted to pay a visit to World Market and TJ Maxx. Wish we had a Homegoods here!

Workout part II was helping Karen look for her keys. She was packing up the last of her things to take to the new place and couldn’t find them ANYWHERE. After 30 minutes of digging, we found them in a trash bag. Go figure! Keys are a scary thing to lose.

After a shower and some work, I had lunch around 1pm.

Something new – a insta-potato salad!

I took Sunday’s Rustic Potatoes and mashed them together with about 3 tbsp greek yogurt, 1 tsp mayo and 1 tsp dijon mustard and a pinch more salt. It was an absolutely delicious potato salad! Served over a bed of spinach.

I realized I haven’t had a banana in a few days thanks to peach season. I usually eat banana every.single.day so this is unheard of! Fit one in at lunch in the form of mashed banana with just a little peanut butter for another layer of flavor between an end piece of Dakota.

Happy afternoon to you all!

I love bananas + PB on GH bread. Unreal. And true life, I rely on leftovers for EVERYTHING. Hope all is well in C-Ville!

I have two Home Goods here. If you need anything you can’t find online, shoot me an email and I can look.

I instituted mandatory key checks (making sure I had my keys in hand) before entering/exiting any building or vehicle during our move. It’s so easy for things to get misplaced in the craziness.

I had my first experience recently at World Market and OH MY! That place can really get a girl’s decorator juices going!!

I’m ALSO wishing for new cabinets and counter tops! Cabinets 1st though, sooo tempted! Funny, you wish for a Homegoods while I wish for a World Market. We used to have one but it closed! :(

Yum! I thought of you and your watered-down lemonade when I was at Aldi’s this week and picked up a bottle of their Raspberry Lemonade (cheap and all-natural ingredient list) and started drinking 1/4 lemonade to 3/4 ice water. YUM. Even my husband liked it.

Ohhh that bread looks SO good! I also like AB with a couple of choc chips as a ‘post’ lunch excitement ;) Not so into bananas and PB-ick.

Peach/nectarine season is trumping all other fruits for me..other than watermelon!

Losing keys is such an awful feeling! I’m so glad you two found them. Lunch looks delicious! I’m glad you got your walk in and that you’re having a good day!

Had a PB & Banana sandwich for lunch today too! So yummy- but I always need to pair that with a a glass of cold milk! You’re insta-potatoe salad looks great! (and easy- even better!)

What a delicious and satisfying lunch! The banana + PB combo is so good, I need to remember to have it more often.

28 Meghan July 18, 2012 at 3:27 pm

I’ve been reading for a while and I just have to ask, how does walking with a magazine work exactly? Do you walk and read at the same time? Do you stop to sit down during the walk and bring the magazine along for this purpose? I’ve just been curious for a while now…. Thanks!

I walk pretty briskly – you just use your peripheral vision to look out for tree branches and curbs.

I cannot stand it when something important or unimportant is misplaced, & especially if a credit card, keys, etc. are nowhere to be found!

Dakota is my favorite Great Harvest Bread and I love the PB&B combo, too! Just not as much as PB & Honey :) It was 104 here today, soooooo awful! NYC is such an armpit right now.

I love peanut butter and bananas together! Add a little honey and it’s perfection ;-)
That potato salad looks AMAZING! I love potato salad!

I am the exact same way with bananas! Also, with peanut butter. I almost never go a day without peanut butter!!

Hi Kath!

We are two new bloggers who are inspired by you. We’ve read your blog everyday since last summer. Because of you we have both fallen in love with oats, nut butters, and all things healthy. We are both student athletes at Harvard and hope you get a chance to read our blog!

I’ve never heard of such an easy potato salad – it looks yummy too! I will definitely keep it in mind. Also, I love the idea of a mashed banana and peanut butter sandwich. So many good ideas, thank you for sharing! :)

One time we lost my husbands car keys right after we finished packing up all of the Christmas presents and luggage to head home on vacation. An hour later and an unloaded car we found them under the folded down seats. Not fun but happy we found them.

I love that you walk while reading your magazines:) I’m taking the GRE at the end of this month and have been going on a lot of long romantic walks with my GRE vocab flashcards:)

I love Homegoods! You can find some good house stuff at TJM and Marshall’s, but never quite as much/nice as at Homegoods ;)

Banana and peanut butter has to be one of the best combinations ever!

I’m not a huge banana fan, but that sounds tasty. Your salad looks great!

There is a Home Goods going in just up the road from the Towson Mall! Next time you are in the area, you can get your fill!

You must have the coordinatioin of a gymnast and the focus of a Cyborg because there’s no way in heck I could walk while reading a magazine! LOL Maybe I have the focus and coordination of a fruit-fly. :-)

Banana and peanut butter on bread sounds delicious! That looks especially healthy for your baby.
