Good evening 🙂
I’ve had a pretty productive Saturday in terms of getting all my errands done and watching Ohio State kick some booty. Naturally, I’ve also been a hungry beast all day and ate lunch at literally 10:50 because I couldn’t take it anymore. I had a hummus, turkey and laughing cow sandwich on Ezekiel bread with blue corn chips and watermelon!
I don’t know who I am but I’ve seriously been on a coffee kick lately. I go back and forth between tea and coffee and right now for some reason, I’m all about the coffee! I got a double shot skim latte while running errands and snacked on my favorite bar ever!
I don’t know if you saw my tweet about being stuck in a dress in a Target fitting room, but yes….it totally happened! Such a cute dress too and it just screamed Northern California but oh well…it’s clearly a sign when you don’t know how to get it off! hahahaha It was a $24 well saved.
Since Target is attached to Whole Foods (could they GET any crueler?!) I made a pit stop to pick up a few groceries:
- coconut water
- coconut milk
- PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY LARABARS!!!
- wild salmon
- super on sale almond butter
- bunny snacks to try out on my next long run
- goddess dressing
SO excited that pumpkin ale is back out!!!!
Haha I like how I drink a beer while wearing a La Crema shirt. 😉
And for dinner, I made EXACTLY what I was craving—–salmon!!!!!
I made the most phenomenal dinner with pan seared salmon, roasted brussels sprouts and pureed butternut squash. I felt like I was at a restaurant! For the squash, I actually roasted a huge butternut at 425 for 60 minutes and then peeled it and whirled it in the VitaMix with a little coconut milk, cinnamon, cloves, sea salt, cayenne and a squirt of agave. It was soooooo good.
Salmon is actually my favorite dinner to prepare for myself at home. One of my greatest pet peeves is when you go out to a nice restaurant and they totally KILL the salmon by overcooking it. Salmon is meant to be medium rare and I think its best served simply: seasoned with sea salt, cracked black pepper and seared for about 5 minutes per side in olive oil. It’s just sexy. Yes, I did just call a fish sexy.
And then this just had to be taken care of:
Okay, okay, I’m done!!! 😉 (sigh of contentment) Was just g-chatting with AnneP and we both agreed that running long distances makes us very tired and that all the cool kids stay at home on Saturday night, read and go to bed early. I might even be in my pajamas already. You never know.
On that note, I must bid farewell. I’ve got a bit of a headache from not hydrating enough yesterday and am calling it a night.
ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!!!!!!!
