I have a new past time – ICE SKATING. There is an indoor rink in the next town over from me so I have been heading there for a little time on the ice while the D Man is at school. At first I was renting skates which turned out to be not so comfy. Last week I was able to purchase a pair of my own and they are much kinder to my feet and ankles. Today I took along my IPod and listened to some of my favorite tunes while I skated around for an hour. I have just enough time to go back home and thaw out with a warm cup of tea before I have to pick D up from school. Even though I freeze my butt off, I enjoy the alone time. I try to relax and not think about anything that might be bothering me.
After I retrieved my little sweet tart, we hit up Whole Foods for a few necessities (and non-necessities). I discovered this new bar in the ever so plentiful bar isle. I think the bars of chocolate on the wrapper is what really sold me (and the fact that it is chocolate but does not contain soy).
It looks like a chocolate dipped coco crispy treat. The texture was exactly that and I really liked it. Kind of chewy and a little sweet but not over the top. I would definitely buy this again.
I also spotted a big container of various sprouts that was screaming “try me”. I have been on quite a salad kick the past few weeks and this bunch of goodies looked like the perfect accompaniment.
I topped a bed of lettuce with the sprouts (love the sprouted chick peas), hummus, celery and a drizzle of PB2 that I mixed up rather thin as a dressing. The sprouts were good but every so often I would get one that was not so crisp – kind of felt like I was chewing on gritty sand. I still have a ton left so looks like I need to sift through the mix and find the bad ones so that I don’t end up with another mouth full of pebbles.
Charlie is upstairs tucking in our little monkey – he is a sleepy monster tonight. We will be up bright and early for karate. As for the rest of the weekend, I am not sure what is on the agenda. I hope that you all have a great night. See you later.
