No change in the weather so far. Still raining and gray outside :(
The only good thing about that is it keeps Maggie from wanting to go outside all the time.
She’s been napping the morning away, and I wish I could join her! But work is going well for a Monday, so I can’t complain.
We had tacos last night and whenever I have beans, corn, and avocado in the fridge, it means one thing.
A bowl of MexiEggs!
Today’s bowl was:
- 1/4 cup oatbran cooked with salt + water
- fat free refried beans
- 2 over easy eggs with ancho chile powder
I also had a small salad on the side to use up some lettuce I cut up last night.
Romaine, red onion, scallion, corn, more tomato, and avocado with just a little lime juice + salt for “dressing”.
The most exciting part of lunch? This tomato I found in the grocery store this weekend!
With my recent goal of buying local as much as possible and in-season, I figured I would be without tomatoes for another month or so. But I saw these Gritt’s Hydroponic tomatoes in the store that were labeled “local”, and that was enough for me to throw 3 in my shopping cart.
When I looked it up today, I found out that the farm is in West Virginia, just a hop-skip-jump from us.
Thank goodness for a good tomato just before the season hits – and even better that it’s local! We live just 20 minutes from WV, so that’s just as close as what I get at the market here.
The only “bad” thing about lunch? I broke one of my egg yolks, which means one won’t be a good runny egg like I like ‘em.
Is breaking an egg yolk a sign of bad luck? I hope not!
Back to work – – –
