Well, I’m happy to say I had a few food breakthroughs today!
- I loved the raw zucchini dipped in the guacamole – yum.
- That sandwich I had at lunch that I was planning on picking the carrots + cukes off of?
I ate it all – carrots, cucumbers and everything! Everything but a hunk of red onion that fell off. I have never, ever been a fan of raw carrots (I like them cooked) or cucumber unless it was on a gyro. They were both delicious with the other veggies and hummus, though – I’m not sure Ill just have a sliced cucumber on its own, but both were really tasty on this sandwich.
Yay! I like finding out something isn’t as bad as I imagined it would be :)
I like Fridays at work – everyone is relaxed, there’s a little less to do, and we always end up talking football. Today was no different, and I enjoyed it. I can’t wait! 21 days!!!
Nick and I left work around 4:30 since he was able to get in to see the doctor, so I sat and read a book while waiting for him. He got more Cipro to take and is starting on that tonight – we’re hoping it will totally clear him of this Honduran stuff this time!
I went to pick up his prescription once we got home and found these!
I’ve been looking for these coconut m&ms everywhere! Hit up Rite-Aid if you’re looking – they had a whole bin of the single serving bags (thank goodness!). I am not good with those big bags of m&ms. It is just too easy to grab handful after handful. I haven’t tried them yet, but I’m thinking they may be my “What Not to Wear” snack for tonight :)
After I got back, I made a quick dinner for us.
How can dinner be bad when you start with rainbow chard from the farmer’s market? I love rainbow chard. It’s so beautiful.
I basically made this Gnocchi with Chard + White Beans from Eating Well, but I subbed some ww shells for the gnocchi this time. The ww gnocchi at the store was $4 and these shells were only $1 ! Call me cheap, but I liked it just as well with the shells.
I’ve got to get baking to clear out some super ripe bananas, start on laundry, and finish my grocery list for tomorrow. I think we’re going out on the river tomorrow with some friends and then eating here.
What’s your favorite thing to make for other people? Something not too difficult or that takes too long to make…I have a few ideas but can’t decide!
