Today is a work-from-home day.
That means I’m typically in a t-shirt and jeans, and no shoes = no problem. In the winter, I just put on my sweats after getting out of the shower. It’s awesome :)
It also means that I rarely dry my hair and I don’t put anything on my face since I’m in the house all day working, except for my lunchtime walk with Maggie.
Even though I’m working, I feel like those days just give me a break in the morning since I’m not having to get ready to be seen by anyone else. It’s kinda nice! I like giving my hair a day off from the dryer and my skin a break from makeup.
But the best (and worst) thing about working from home is being able to pick what I want for lunch when I’m ready for it.
I love being able to decide what I’m in the mood for that day, but it’s SO hard to decide when I have a fridge full of choices!
We have a bunch of random veggies today, so I heated those up, added some extra seasoning (garlic, crushed red pepper) and whipped up some quick + easy deviled eggs.
Since I didn’t have any deviled eggs on Easter (and after seeing them everywhere lately), I had to make some today.
I ran into a problem when I went to make them, but found an easy solution!
I had NO plain yogurt in the house. And I like using yogurt instead of mayo, so I just worked with what I had.
I’ve been meaning to try hummus with eggs and I finally made it happen today.
And the secret ingredient in my eggs? Smoked paprika. Seriously – it’s our favorite spice.
For the deviled mix, I added 1 Tbsp or so of hummus, a squirt of dijon mustard, some salt, smoked paprika, and a tiny bit of relish to the yolks before adding them back to the whites.
I’m pretty sure hummus should always be included in deviled eggs from now on – try it!
As for my “lunch dessert” today, I found it in this cute package of the new dessert flavors of Oikos I received to sample last week. Thanks Kristina!
This was some of the cutest packaging I’ve ever seen – I loved the little cupcake liners :)
I love the chocolate at the bottom. Not a yogurt I would eat every day for breakfast, but it’s great for a sweet treat! It definitely reminded me of the Stonyfield Chocolate Underground (which I also love), just with a thicker texture. Yum!
Congrats to Kacie who won the Aurorae yoga mat giveaway! Know what’s even better? She won it ON her birthday! How fun :)
Don’t forget – you can use the OpenSky coupon from the contest through next Monday, April 12th.
I have another awesome project starting tomorrow that I’m really excited about.
Do you work from home? If so, what’s your biggest distraction? If not, do you think you could get your stuff done at home?
