I’m sorry I never came back yesterday but I really needed a breather. I was SO.TIRED. and just needed to disconnect for an evening. But, I feel much better after a solid 8 hours of sleep and I’m ready to conquer the rest of this week!
Now, for a recap:
Yesterday’s lunch of split pea soup, a doctor kracker and an apple—-
Snack of an odwalla bar! These were on clearance at Big Johns…woohoo!
I actually left work early because I wasn’t feeling well and I came home to do my laundry and eat. For dinner, I made a simple red lentil dal with roasted butternut squash + a piece of TJ’s garlic naan, which is DELICIOUS!
The dal was really really easy to prepare. Usually (ok, always), I use onions but I’m out so all I did was saute some garlic in olive oil, add the lentils + half a can of diced tomatoes + 1 cup water + garam masala + sea salt and ginger and let it simmer down. I roasted a butternut, sliced it up and tossed half the slices with the curry. I love Indian food and need to find a place to get it here in California!
Bad food blogger also ate pumpkin frozen yogurt with chocolate chips and butterfinger pieces but didn’t take a photo. Don’t hate me! 😉
This morning I set my alarm for quite an early hour so I could wake up and get some work done before my imminent 8:30 spinning class and then work. Today is actually my LAST day of work at the winery for a whole week because……my mom is coming tomorrow!!!!!!! I’m SO excited for her to get here and to show her around and just have some good ol’ fashioned mother daughter time. Her flight gets in tomorrow night and she is staying for six days. We are going to do a lot of exploring, wine tasting, shopping (maybe? hint hint) and eating. It will be a really great break.
For breakfast I had oatmeal made with a half cup oats, half cup milk, half cup water, banana, almond butter and topped with a sprinkle of granola for CRUNCH!
After hosting the guys in Healdsburg last week, I’ve actually become really good friends with Kevin (BFF, obviously)…he is seriously one of the nicest, most down to earth guys I’ve met, and not to mention an absolutely amazing chef. Let’s help him WIN! 🙂 Apparently, every person can vote up to 80 times so click away!
