**Since I didn’t post yesterday, I’d like to wish a happy belated birthday to Mara!!**
Good morning, sunshines!
(I say that desperately as I look out my window and see nothing but grey…)
Hard to believe it’s Thursday already! I’m looking forward to the weekend because my family is coming into town, and we are headed north for the “Bender” family reunion Papa Bender is the oldest of ten kids, so you can imagine that it is quite the crowd! It will be Bobby’s first time meeting the entire clan, so that should be interesting, too (and hilarious).
Last night, I did Level 1 of Jillian Michael’s 30-Day Shred. I walk to work every day, which is a really great workout, but the 20-minute shred workout at night is the perfect amount of time for strength training. I also made one of my favorite quick + easy dinners.
I scrambled up 2 eggs + 1 egg white with 1/2 cup spinach until the spinach was cooked and wilted (the right side of the plate). I topped the eggs with 1 oz. goat cheese and a big spoonful of salsa. On the left side of the plate, I added more spinach topped with salsa. It always surprises me how much this fills me up since it only takes about 5 minutes to make.
Question: When you’ve had a long, busy day, how do you find the motivation to cook something?
I want to make stir-fry after work tonight, but it seems that almost every time I come home, I have no desire to do anything besides sit on the couch Any tips would be appreciated – I’m at a loss.
Oh, and if you have any good stir-fry recipes, please send them my way!!
Currently, I’m eating a bowl of Kashi Go Lean, Nature’s Path Puffs and unsweetened vanilla almond milk for breakfast while blogging (BWB). Bowl courtesy of Karen!
And now…THE BIG REVEAL!
Many of you requested to see a picture of my new kitchen. I am happy to oblige We really lucked out because we found a brand new place at a reasonable rate. Welcome to our home…
Sorry, I know it’s a bit blurry (it was taken at 5:00 am and the sunshine was scarce!) and there are some random bowls, blenders and other gadgets on the counters. But I couldn’t be happier about the setup and I am looking forward to making some great recipes on that stove! By the way, can you spot the spoon on the floor? Clearly someone was in a rush this morning…
I hope you all have something fabulous planned today. Enjoy it!
