It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon here in Virginia. My bike ride home had me soaring through pockets of cool air under trees twinkling with setting sun . I almost forgot how much my legs were burning going up the piedmont hills!
Afternoon conference call:
Granola bar crumble munching:
We ended sales with a bang today, selling out of most of our sweets + breads. We also had a great day for sandwiches!
Matt took the afternoon off and went out for a BBQ lunch with a friend, so he was still kind of full at dinnertime. I ate too much granola bar! So we declared tonight a simple salad dinner instead of the millet + bean fiesta I had been planning.
There is one key to keeping sanity + health on busy weeknights: have versatile ingredients in your fridge! You can do anything with staples of veggies, grains, and proteins. Of course a little bread helps too!
Tonight we made tropical salads
We started with garden greens mixed with green peppers, carrots, and cucs.
Then dressed those in just a drizzle of olive oil and lavender salt.
Then for fun we added mango + avocado for a tropical splash.
And cubes of Parrano cheese (SO GOOD!)
And finally, a pan-seared smoked paprika egg on top
The combo of mango, avocado and cheese was outstanding!!
Of course the lettuce was really good too. Riiiiiiight.
Just munched on a piece of cashew brittle for dessert.
I’m so tired tonight! Not sleepy, just tired. I’m glad I took today as a rest day (minus the active commuting) for the muscles. Tomorrow morning I am getting a MASSAGE! Matt and I won one at the Joel Salatin event we went to back in May and I’m finally cashing it in. Can’t. Wait.
