Good afternoon everyone!
After driving in horrid conditions for an hour and a half….and crawling along at a snails pace….I said forget this!!! I almost got stuck in the snow 3 times! So I turned around and went home. It was a shame I had to go through all of that and waste all that time for nothing though. I knew it was too bad to drive in!
So I had an errand to do on the way home….which also meant some money spending. I finally had a chance to mail Ashley‘s Honest Foods prize!!! That came to $17.82. Let’s hope I get my Food Buzz ad on here soon so I am not footing these shipping bills all the time! lol.
After some housework, faxing my Food Buzz contract, Oh She Glows domestics, and working from home for a while, I was ready for lunch!
I decided to have some of the Baked Dijon salmon leftovers from the weekend. I felt like something soothing and savoury!
I had about a half a cup’s worth.
I slathered on some hummus, heated up dijon salmon, 2 slices of tomatoes, and a drizzle of Neal Brothers salsa.
Along with a balsamic vinagrette tomato salad:
I have been asked a few times whether I find that the smoothies I drink in the morning fill me up. And the answer is yes– but not for long! I find it holds me over about 2 hours and then I always have a mid-morning snack so I make it to lunch.
A typical mid-morning snack for me is a couple servings of organic veggies and some type of grain (e.g., Mary’s Organic Crackers, cereal, etc) usually with raw almond butter.
This morning’s snack was an apple and 1/2 of a Key Lime Larabar. Delicious!
Ok, I’m going to work on the slideshow for the contest entries tomorrow! Keep those entries coming in- they are all great! They are making me hungry…hehe. I think I’m going to go have the other half of my Larabar soon.
PS- The votes are in! You all voted Angelina Jolie for worst dressed of the SAG awards! Meryl Streep and Sally Field were tied for second place.
This is a tougie for me…I was born in the Spring so I am a bit biased towards that! I would say Spring or Fall are my favs. :)
May we never let the things we can’t have, or don’t have, or shouldn’t have, spoil our enjoyment of the things we do have and can have. As we value our happiness, let us not forget it, for one of the greatest lessons in life is learning to be happy without the things we cannot or should not have. Richard L. Evans
