I’m so frustrated! I haven’t gotten a thing done today except eat and exercise. My Eye-Fi card is NOT working and I have no clue what is wrong with it. I thought I fixed it the other day but now it’s not working again. It just sits there and no photos import and there’s no way to start the import (although I can always use the USB drive to get my photos). So sorry to be such a whiner, but the past 3 days I feel like each of my posts has taken me an HOUR to do and is draining all of my time.
The husband Matt and I went to the gym at 11:30 and at least that part of the day went well! We biked there under sunny skies and had a good workout. I did 28 minutes on the Stepmill (hate to do that two days in a row but I felt like it) and then I did 15 minutes on the Stat bike before biking home.
After a shower and some beard trimming, we came down to lunch. Yes, he’s growing a beard! It won’t stick around, but it’s for fun. Our friend Justin has cool facial hair and at the Valentine’s party we joked about Matt trying to grow some. He trimmed it today like so. I think it’s going to be shaved off in the next week or so because we both like a clean cheek on him!
So back to the best sandwich ever. Recall my tempeh + pumpkin butter sandwich from Wednesday? I made it again today and decided it’s a magnificent sandwich!!! This Flax Oat Bran bread is the foundation. It’s SO dense and heavy and the walnuts in it are so good. And then the almost crunchy 3-grain tempeh makes the sandwich even crunchier. It’s 1/6 of a plank of tempeh so it’s about 75 calories with 6.5 grams protein and 4.5 grams fiber. Then the pumpkin butter just adds a touch of sweetness to the otherwise neutral flavor. And it’s such a firm, heavy sandwich that doesn’t fall apart with each bite. (The bread may be small sliced but it is dense, so this sandwich is probably nearing 400 calories, FYI). You will be seeing this more because I find it filling.
Strawberries on the side
I also prepared this yogurt, strawberry and Weetabix bowl (Jenna reminded me I’ve had an open box of these in our pantry since before KERF was created!). However, I did not eat this because I felt full when I finished my other two. It’s in the fridge to have around 5:00 if I need it. (I just got the new Windows Live Writer and it’s awesome! Not only do things automatically link for me, but I can tilt photos and do a few more cool things 🙂 )
Tonight we’re going to Karen’s for dinner along with a Spanish professor from Davidson and another friend of hers. Cool!
OK – i have GOT to get to work!!!
