Good evening, morning, midnight! It’s been an exciting day. Amid the fun I crossed off all but one item (school work, shocking right) on my to-do list.
Post breakfast I finished up my resume, applied to a grad program, recorded my #s/qs for all the other grad programs, and planned our meals for the week. A was out and about shadowing a local podiatrist so I was all alone to work.
When A got home around 4 it was time for a late lunch. I bought this Lean Quisine pannini on a whim, but it was pretty tasty.
The plate is just for show because I actually wrapped it in a papertowel so I could eat it on the go as we headed to the grocery store.
On the way there (post-sandwich, pre-shopping) we stopped and used our Starbucks card.
I had a tall, nonfat iced chai latte. I realize it’s below 40* outside, but I’ve been super parched all day. Does anyone else find that hot drinks are just not thirst-quenching?
On the way home from the store I attempted to stop into a little store to redeem a coupon for Kefir (never tried it before). Store #1 had them, but they were months past date – yuck. I ended up running around to 3 different stores while A went home with the groceries. All total I scurried an additional 1.6miles before I had success!
Once we were both finally home it was time for dinner. I am really big on mixing food cultures so we made some Mediterranean Style Huevos Rancheros. For 2 –
- pour 1T evoo into a hot skillet. Saute 1/2 a large onion, chopped.
- add 3C raw spinach to the pan
- add 2egg tomatoes, chopped to the pan
- add 1/2C marinated artichoke hearts to the pan
- beat 3 eggsin a separate bowl and add them to the veggies
- once the eggs have mostly set, add 1/2C crumbled blue cheese
- split eggs between 2 WW tortillas
- top each with 1T roasted red pepper and onion relish
Since we were eating brinner, I knew I had to have coffee.
Cappuccino flavored Kefir!
All together now.
I actually didn’t take a single bit of the tortilla and it ended up being a sort of wasteful “plate.” We ate quickly and hurried out to the movie theatre – to find that both of our movies were sold out 😦 So we bought tickets to the 10:20 shows and ran some more errands before we went home.
When it was finally time to head back to the movies I was a little hungry again so I packed 2clementines (I also bought a large diet coke) as a movie snack.
I also bought a (small, NOT movie sized, YaY) bag of Shockers.
I saw “He’s Just Not That Into You” (sidenote – I HATE chick flicks, I am a total dude about movies, but the acting talent in this looked too appealing) and A saw “Slumdog Millionaire” so I could discuss it with him. He thought it was great too, two recs, go see it!
It’s 1:30 in the morning so it is definitely time for bed, sweet dreams all!
