I wouldn’t say this was the absolute perfect day (no sunshine was seen!) but it sure has been a good one. Lots of accomplishments. Some school work knocked out this afternoon. Lots of good, satisfying food. I give it a thumbs up
And what nice day wouldn’t have a little wine?! I finished off the 2 –3 oz left in Saturday’s bottle.
I didn’t have a snack this afternoon – I guess my late lunch held me over. It was weird because I felt hungry but my stomach felt full, so I didn’t want to eat anything?! The mango will go into tomorrow’s breakfast.
Tonight’s dinner ingredient was ground turkey. It started out being planned as turkey chili, then changed to a baked spaghetti squash casserole, then changed to a tossed spaghetti squash pasta, then when I saw these glorious Dakota buns Matt brought home, we changed it yet again to turkey burgers!
They were a simple affair – just 99% fat free ground turkey and some S+P seasoning. In their simplicity, the burgers tasted wonderful.
Topped with pickle, mustard + ketchup. I debated cheese, but knowing how I can never taste it, I went without. I asked Matt if he could taste his huge slice of pepperjack and his response was: “No, not really.” Good choice! The only cheeses I think are worth putting on sandwiches: Laughing Cow, Goat + Blue.
To go with the burgers, I made a Greek Salad.
Romaine, spinach, cuc, pepper, broccoli, sprouts, capers, feta and a lemon-tahini dressing.
For the dressing, I shook in a jar:
- 1/2 of a lemon’s juice (~3 tbsp?)
- 1 tbsp tahaini
- Dash oregano
Over dinner we discussed how much we like salads that have been prepared in a big bowl. Something about the tossing just makes them better! We both like eating out of big bowls too, which you can see here when he decided to just eat out of the serving bowl. My mom would NOT approve of these table manners!
Slam Dunk. Right when I started eating a piece of feta went flying from my lettuce and INTO THIS CANDLE!
Remember when we made this delicious mushroom pizza with a mystery green sauce and mystery recipe? Here it is!!
To end this nice day, the plan is
- Lunar flow yoga
- A bath
- Reading in bed
Can you believe I have not read a single book this semester!? Sad. Sad. I love reading so much, and that just shows how busy I’ve been. Perhaps I will start a novel tonight. I’m not sure if I will accomplish these final 3 pleasurable tasks before 9:30, but I will try!
