Do you ever ask yourself, “where did this weekend go!?” I find myself asking that question most Sunday evenings. But tonight I looked at the clock and was shocked to see that it was 9:30 PM – I had no idea where the rest of my day went!
I accomplished a ton of things today and I am going to bed feeling very accomplished which is always a great thing on a Sunday night. (I hope I feel the same way tomorrow evening!)
Here was my to do list:
Find new book to read (I picked up Tina’s new book and I really enjoyed starting it tonight…)
Pack gym bag
Pack lunch/ breakfast
Catch up on emails / phone calls to friends
Catch up on TiVo (and delete)
Yay for a productive day! The only thing missing to make this day 100% complete would have been a great run or workout at the gym. But I took a day off, my first since last Tuesday – so I’m ok with that. 🙂
As I said earlier today, the day got off to a great start with coffee and popovers:
I enjoyed my popover with raspberry jam:
It might not feel like spring outside, but I was reminded of summer as I was grocery shopping today. I got some great produce and decided to make one of my favorite dishes tonight – ratatouille. It is definitely my ‘go to recipe’ – it is so easy, and it is so fresh and so good. Here is what went into the ratatouille tonight:
A lot of eggplant, onion, an Italian pepper, summer squash and zucchini along with a 28 ounce can of diced tomato and juice. It took me a while to chop everything up. But the end result was amazing.
I only had a small bowl tonight (I had an amazing piece of pizza for a late lunch: fresh tomato and mozzarella for toppings from one of my favorite markets, Dave’s!)
Along with the ratatouille, I made whole wheat pasta and had a small slice of rosemary and olive oil bread:
I am wondering how long this dinner will last us. I know we will at least get Monday and Tuesday night out of it. Is Wednesday night a stretch? I’ll let you know. I am so excited for dinner tomorrow night – just thinking of it almost makes me hungry!
Tomorrow’s breakfast and lunch are also prepped and packed. Greek yogurt, kashi, chia and flax seeds for breakfast. A salad of lettuce, orange and red peppers, tomato, cucumbers, carrots and scallions along with a piece of bread and hummus for lunch. An apple for my afternoon / pre gym snack. I love going to bed knowing that all of my healthy foods are all set for the next day.
I hope you all have a great start to your work week – see you tomorrow!
