November 21, 2000 was mine and Charlie’s first date. He took me out to dinner to a very lovely restaurant. And yes, I was just as much a picky eater back then as I am now. It is amazing just how much we have experienced together in the past 9 years. Parenthood being the biggie.
This morning I ventured out for a run. It was actually really nice out there today – not too chilly. After my 8 mile run it was time for some oaty goodness.
I had to resort to the microwave method since I was pressed for time (Saturdays D has karate at 9 so we need to be on the road by 8:30). My oatmeal turned out delicious regardless. I find stovetop oats to be more creamy but in a pinch I will take a nuked bowl too.
In the mix today:
1/ cup oats, 1 cup water, frozen blueberries & pineapple chunks and sunflower seed butter.
I gobbled it up quickly so that we could be on our merry way.
I am currently at Borders – a usual stop for us after class. My main squeeze and I usually have tea and chat.
I am having a cup of English Breakfast. Perfect accompaniment while blogging.
I decided to try out the new free wi-fi. This location just started to offer it a couple weeks ago.
D had hot cocoa and a cookie. Now he is browsing the kid books.
So last night I made one of the best salads. I wanted to share it with you because I used canned veggies – something that I usually do not use. I tend to stay away from canned vegetables since they can contain high amounts of sodium – even if you do the drain and rinse thing. Well I found no salt added green beans and sliced beets – 2 tummy friendly veggies. I also tossed on raw broccoli, almonds, cashews, pistachios and raisins. A little drizzle of Briannas dressing and I was good to go.
Staying on the veggie subject, my sweet tart is still chowing down on broccoli on a daily basis – I know, who is this kid. I bought a 2 lb bag yesterday so lets hope he doesn’t go turning on me. I think as long as I let him dip it in ranch dressing he is happy.
After D was all snuggly in his bed last night, Charlie and I watched Twilight. I enjoyed it but the book was WAY better. Now I really want to see New Moon.
I am not sure what is on the agenda for the rest of the day. We are having really great weather, especially for the middle of November.
I hope you have a great weekend.
