Today was a different kind of day. I started my day same as normal. And then I just didn’t feel like doing anything. So I gave myself permission to do just that. Maybe it was this poster I saw this morning.
I dunno. Maybe I overdid yesterday. Whatever it was, I stayed in my pajamas all day and was pretty content doing nothing.
Sophie got a little bored.
Noah was a good boy.
Sophie thought the picture needed some improvement.
Some of the recent eats:
I told you guys about this idea for fruit dip/spread a while ago. This was the first time I made it. Fixed dinner for my spiritual formation group last night–healthy taco salad (yumm) and strawberries with this dip. It met with unanimous approval. People were scraping their plates to get the last of it! I had some leftover, so topped a white peach with a couple of tablespoons. Divine! Recipe for Creamy Fruit Dip.
Tried out that new recipe I mentioned the other day. This was absolutely divine. Maybe its been too long since I had the real thing. But honestly, it tasted like coconut custard pie to me. I made it this morning, and saved it for dessert tonight. The rest is safely in the freezer. Thanks again to the culinary genius of Georgie. The thing about something like this is that yes, it tastes luxurious like dessert. But the ingredients are healthy and are fueling your body while you indulge. Its a win-win situation.
Dinner tonight was scrumptious. I’m still trying to choose stuff that I don’t have to spend too much time chopping (what was I thinking of, buying a butternut squash,) and I’m still using paper plates (washing dishes is NOT fun) but I’m back to cooking obviously. Leftover roasted beets, roasted green beans, and a piece of perfectly cooked salmon–yay me. Too many times I get distracted and overcook it.
Been watching a marathon of Biggest Loser episodes today. I feel a little guilty admitting to watching it, because I essentially disagree with most of what they do there. But I pick up a few tidbits. And today was particularly cathartic. There was a father/daughter team on there that was particularly close, and I cried really hard a couple of times with their interactions. And then that same father lost his brother DURING his time at the ranch and he was grieving, and I cried hard again during that episode. I don’t cry much at all about losing my dad, so I guess I think its good that this happens once in a while.
And now I’m tired from doing nothing all day, so I think I’ll take a shower and head to bed. You all have a great weekend!
