The Cookies Continue

I started off my day with a cookie, and I’m ending it with one, too  :)  More on that in a minute.

Nick and I went to the mall at lunch and looked around in Dick’s Sporting Goods and then got some coffee before going back to work. I got this really good latte, but then I just couldn’t drink it at work! I was too warm in my office to drink the hot drink – so I put it in the fridge at work to have tomorrow morning, and I’m already excited for it. 

I did end up have a small snack at work this afternoon, mainly because I knew I had a chiropractor appointment after work and that usually takes 30-40 minutes before I would be home to cook dinner. I ate the hard boiled egg I brought with me today – eggs are like the perfect little food! Portable, filling, easy.

The chiropractor visit went great today. I’m a lot better than I was at this point last week, but they still gave me the electrode therapy stuff today. I love it – I end up falling asleep every time. It just feels so nice with that hot pillow on your shoulders. I try to stay awake, but it never happens. I think I’m just about back to normal after the accident! I am still having some headaches, but they come and go and aren’t nearly as bad as they were last week.

Dinner tonight was a tried-and-true recipe and was from - where else? – MyRecipes.com! More specifically, Cooking Light.

Thai Beef Salad

Of course, it wouldn’t be right without a few modifications:

  • We used strip steaks
  • I only used 1 Tbsp soy sauce since that’s all I had
  • I cut up a fresh orange instead of using the mandarins
  • We omitted the cabbage and cucumbers

We love this salad! We’ve made it a few times before (pre-blog) and I think it’s better every time we have it. The dressing makes this salad, along with the oranges. I think this would be great with any protein (pork, chicken, tofu, beans), and it’s a great refreshing meal for the spring and summer time.

I knew I needed one of my contest treats after dinner so I could round out my day with cookies, right?

So there you have it. My contest cookie.  At least you know there’s chocolate in them!

I’m off to work on some blog stuff and maybe start a new book.

 

Can you believe tomorrow is already Thursday?

    Chiropractors scare me! There’s something about having someone twist and crack my body that freaks me out!! However, a warm pillow on my back? That sounds nice!

    Mmm your contest cookie looks great!
