I normally don’t have the TV on while I work – it’s too distracting. But I found this morning that the Olympics make excellent background noise! Unless it’s a sport I’m deeply into (like gymnastics). I “watched” swimming, rowing and basketball this morning while I worked on the couch. I plan to spend the afternoon at my desk though because my posture on the couch is terrible!
For lunch I made an amazing smoked trout salad. Smoked trout is life changing! I like it even more than sardines and WAY more than tuna. I may never go back to tuna again. I mixed a tin of Trader Joe’s smoked trout with heaping teaspoons of mayo and mustard, smoked salt and pepper and a squirt of lemon juice. Plus a chopped small tomato, a pickle and some minced pickled jalapeno!
Served with some “woven crackers” from Whole Foods that Karen left here. I laughed at the ingredient list: “Whole wheat, salt.”
Fruit on the side – super sweet cantaloupe and yellow plums
I should have consumed them in the reverse order because after the ‘loupe the plums tasted like flavorless grapes!
Gymnastics women’s team final on tonight – can’t wait!! Matt doesn’t seem like the type to be into the Olympics, but surprisingly he is – and he also likes gymnastics a lot. His only complaint: the floor exercise dancing segments, which he just doesn’t get at all : )
