Success all around! My to do list is mostly checked of and it’s been a fabulous Friday evening.
Immediately following my last post I got dressed and headed to the gym. I did 35minutes on the treadmill of 2minute run/1minute walk intervals. All total I did 35minutes and about 3.5miles. I usually try to add some sprints into the jogging portion, but my foot is hurting so I didn’t tonight. I was feeling guilty about it until I realized that my mileage was the same and my calorie-burn (or rather my “calorie burn,” I use the machine and not a hr monitor) was the same as my last session. Plus, I felt much happier and energized, I guess I will save the sprints until I’ve been back into running a little longer.
After the gym I went to the grocery store. A wasn’t there, so I could browse to my heart’s content and ending up picking up a few fun items you’ll see throughout the next week. One of which was –
holy crap, Jelly Belly pudding?! For some reason this was very exciting for me. How well do you know me – what flavor of Jelly Belly pudding did I buy???
While I was out gyming it, A was being a sweetheart and cooking dinner at home. He made a box of au gratin potatos and some Martha Stewart (a recipe from Real Simple) meatloaf.
Martha Meatloaf (a.k.a. turkey and roasted red pepper meatloaf)
- 1.5lbs ground turkey
- 1small yellow onion, chopped
- 1/2C bread crumbs
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1C grated Parmesan
- 2T dijon mustard
- 1C flat-leaf parsley, chopped
- 1 7oz jar roasted red peppers, cut into 1/2inch pieces
Heat oven to 400*. Combine ingredients in a large bowl. Shape the meat into an 8inch loaf and place into a baking dish. Bake 45minutes. Rest before cutting for 15minutes.
And when I came home I added a green veggie to the meal, Mustardy Mustard Greens.
I heated the can of mustard greens in a sautee pan over low heat then added in 1.5T of Stonewall Kitchen Blue Cheese Mustard and a small handful of pine nuts.
The greens were go-oo-ood!
And even though I would not tolerate any sort of boxed potatos as a kid (my parents would never have cooked boxed potatos so it didn’t come up often) I enjoyed a small serving tonight.
And A did a good job on the meatloaf.
Now I’ve got to shower so I can hop into my pjs and grab a magazine. I’m also going to pop one of these guys.
It was a great Friday. I am so proud of myself that I made it to the gym and I’ve even got some time to relax. Tomorrow I’m waking up early to get some work done and then heading to a bar in Williamsburg to hang out with one of best friends from high school!
What flavor of pudding do you think I bought? What flavor would you want to buy?
P.S. Seriously? How funny is this commercial?
