Hi there blog friends! Happy Emilyday (for origins of Emilyday - see this post). I was discussing Emilyday with Brian this morning and he couldn't quite understand why Thursday and not Friday or Saturday was my favorite. Aside from school being over for the week, Thursdays mean that the weekend is right around the corner. I don't know about you guys, but when I was little, Christmas Eve was probably the most exciting day ever. Christmas paled in comparison. I guess I'm all about the anticipation. :)
Brian and I are SO looking forward to this weekend. I feel like we've been getting to bed pretty late this week and still haven't caught up from our moving weekend. We've both been sleeping really well, just not enough!
For breakfast, I drowsily had two slices of whole wheat toast with almond butter and banana. Along with an iced coffee with soymilk and one splenda packet. Deliciousness!
I had to leave for a bit this morning to go to a Drs appointment and while waiting to be seen I found the newest volume of Eating Well magazine. It had some great lunch ideas (edamame hummus, roasted chick peas, lentil salad) including a greek wrap with stuffed grape leaves. It totally gave me the idea to stop and pick up my favorite salad on the way home to have for lunch. This salad has two crunchy romaine leaves, a big glob of hummus, baby carrots, 2 stuffed grape leaves and two pieces of falafel. YUM! It comes with a white pita but I had some kashis instead.
This afternoon, my snack was pretty predictable but amazingly delicious. A plain oikos with mix my granola. Yum.
After work, I went to the gym and did an unusually hard 30 minutes on the stairclimber. I got some good leisure reading done though, so that was great. :)
Brian and I headed back home around 6 and I was SO hungry. Because the boy was going out for a run, I knew dinner was pretty far away so I had a piece of bread with barney butter. And then, I tried a super hard ten minute arm workout from fitness magazine. I used one of Brian's 6 pound medicine balls and phew! It was intense!
We still don't have that much food in the house but we did have eggs, fresh (and local) green bell pepper and tomato. So, I decided to make a big fritatta with four eggs, the whole pepper chopped and sauteed, some garlic, red pepper flake, pepper and salt. Once the bottom of the fritatta was well cooked, I popped it in the oven to let the top set. (The oven was on because I was baking a sweet tater).
I diced the 'mater and then served it on top of the fritatta with some Costa Rican salsa (oh, how I miss Costa Rica) and black pepper and garlic. Brian and I split the sweet tater which was scrumptious. :) Oh yeah, and I split my half of the fritatta in half so there are leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
Now, we're listening to the Sox play on the radio and are going to tackle unpacking and arranging the guest room (also known as the room where Brian's clothes reside). :)
I hope you guys have a great night - Friday is almost here! Ahhh...the anticipation!!
