Late this afternoon, I drove out to pay my friend Lynsie and her newborn a visit and bring her some goodies. Remember Lynsie from Body Pump at 40 weeks? Little D was born 10 days ago and I had the pleasure of holding him for over an hour today. SO CUTE! He spent most of the time sleepin’ in my arms, with the occasional wiggle.
And this sweet kitty greeted me from the window! Orange cats everywhere : ) This one was named Tigger!
When I finally got back home, all of a sudden I was starving! Like “I can’t think or do anything until I eat something” starving. So odd how fast it came on. I wonder if my run (short as it was) suppressed my appetite for a while and then it caught up with me because I didn’t feel hungry at all while at Lynsie’s.
Cocktail hour snack! Apple + sunbutter + graham cracker square + one more square in my mouth
Dinner tonight was super easy and made from scratch! Made from scratch by someone else! When I was really sick about week 7, Karen took me to Mona Lisa Pasta and told me to stock up on their gourmet frozen pastas since the thought of cooking was out of the question at the time. For some reason I have been hoarding this cheese lasagna for…3 months!? (Funny how fast you can calculate time when you’re counting weeks )
An hour later, dinner was steaming hot and delicious. This lasagna was practically homemade since everything at Mona Lisa made from scratch and composed of real food. It tasted wonderful!! The cheese on top was salty, the blend of ricotta and marinara was perfect and the noodles had a lovely doughy taste that I loved (I believe they were made in house too!) I would totally get this again. 1.5 pieces for my appetite!
Since I DO feel like cooking now, I sautéed up some kale and zucchini to go alongside. Seasoned with salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice, of course.
Really good dinner! Tomorrow and Saturday I’ll be working at the bakery all day, so we’re getting in some last-minute relaxin’ now!
