Today has been a cold and rainy day. It is supposed to stop raining tomorrow but only be in the 30’s – BRRRRR!!! Come on sunshine head this way soon.
We really have not been up to anything exciting. After the brunch we stopped at Trader Joe’s which just happened to be MOBBED.
I took a Cinnamon Roll Larabar to brunch. It held me over well but by the time we got home it was 12:30 and I needed lunch ASAP.
Lunch was the usual massive load of veggies. In the mix – lettuce, cabbage slaw, red pepper, zucchini, salsa (green & red variety – I was feeling like I needed variety at TJ’s today), chic peas, cottage cheese and a hard boiled egg.
With the salad I had Rice Crisps.
I ended lunch with a Cocoa Loco bar.
This afternoon I did manage to get some vacuuming done but other than that I was very unproductive. I pretty much ate my lunch and read for a while – the guys were chilling out doing some father/son bonding.
I did however do a little experimenting with Chia seeds. I mixed 3 ounces of Vanilla Almond Milk with a tablespoon of Chia seeds and let it sit for about 45 minutes. It turned into a thick “custard”. It wasn’t extremely flavorful but it was unique. I bet if I added some applesauce or mashed banana it would be yummy.
I also had a sliced apple.
We also had to run to Whole Foods so that I could get some Gluten Free things that I can’t find anywhere but there. When we got home I made dinner.
Sorry to bore you with yet another salad but this girlie loves her veggies. In this one there was lettuce, a mixed veggie blend (from the freezer), salsa, hummus and cottage cheese.
With this salad I had 365 Brand Tortilla Strips topped with a piece of melted provolone cheese. This was delicious. I love, love, love melted cheese. Then again I pretty much love cheese in any fashion. Thankfully I can still stomach dairy – I could not live without cheese. And for me, the strong cheeses are my preference – oh how I love Asiago!!!
I made a little something sweet that I will call dessert. I topped 2 Corn Thins with peanut butter, dried cherries and figs.
I was really still not full satisfied so I made another PB & Fig Corn Thin.
Tonight the three of us are going to the movies. We are going to watch Monsters VS. Aliens. It is time to get a move on. See you tomorrow. I hope that the Easter Bunny delivers some yummy goodies to your house.
