Good Monday morning!
Do you ever have one of those days where things just don’t happen in the time it should? That about sums up yesterday :)
Nothing was wrong, the day was fine…everything just took longer than expected.
But first, lunch yesterday!
I picked up some steaks this weekend, so Nick grilled those and some zucchini while I cooked up some corn.
Why do grilled foods taste so good?
We ate lunch while watching “We Are Marshall” – good movie, but it just made me even MORE excited for football season :) I’m ready!
After cleaning up from lunch, Nick headed out to finish mowing the lawn and weed-eat while I worked on laundry and cleaning the house.
I’m happy to say I didn’t get sucked into any movies while cleaning yesterday, but I did make time for a few snacks.
I tried my first Key Lime Pie Larabar yesterday and loved it! I think I’ll like any with coconut in it, but this one was really good with the coconut + lime flavor.
I also had this…
…times 3 or 4? I don’t really remember how many I had. I just grabbed a few out of the freezer while passing by the fridge in between laundry + cleaning.
It was good, but man it took a long time!
I roasted a bone-in turkey breast, but it took about an hour longer than we thought it would, so we didn’t eat dinner until about 9pm. That’s not super late, but it’s much later than we normally eat.
I brushed the turkey breast with some olive oil and sprinkled on some salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then, while it was baking, I brushed it with some mango juice about every 20-30 minutes. That turned out better than I thought it would!
We also had some green beans (from our garden! first batch) and some mashed potatoes with salt, garlic, and smoked paprika.
After we ate, we finished watching Iron Chef and went to bed. Eating dinner that late just makes me sleepy!
So, back to this morning.
I was hungry when I woke up – don’t you love that feeling? That makes me look forward to breakfast even more :)
I had planned on mixing up a cookie or muesli last night, but kind of forgot after the late dinner, so oatmeal it was!
- 1/2 cup oats, pinch salt, 1 cup water
- 1/2 peach, chopped
- handful blackberries + raspberries
- slivered almonds
I’m hoping this, plus some coffee, will get me going! I’ve got a busy day of work ahead.
What time do you normally eat dinner?
