Sorry for the late-ish post, guys! Days like this are always crazy because I have to drive back from Tampa to Orlando in time to get my grocery shopping, wash and cleaning done…I was really hoping I was going to have an extra half an hour to hit the gym but that didn’t happen. Every second was filled! First of all, the car place took 2 1/2 hours!!!!! Don’t you hate that?! I was planning on 30 minutes…it was alright though because I got some work done and got to test drive a new black beetle (the car I’m dying to get when I finally get around to trading my old Accord in).
When I finally got back from the dealership, I was surprised to find Ryan still at home. He had planned on working from home this morning to surprise me when I got back—we thought it would only be 45 minutes! Turned out he had been waiting for me for two hours and when I got there we only had 5 minutes before he had to hurry out the door for a lunch meeting. It’s the thought that counts though and it was fun to see each other one last time til Saturday. 🙁
I ate leftover pizza for lunch and it was amazing! I LOVE their pizza—their crust especially! So good! This lunch really filled me up and since I had such an early dinner I didn’t need a snack this afternoon.
Speaking of dinner…when I saw this frozen Indian meal in Publix it was calling my name. I’ve never tried frozen Indian food but this blew me away. It was sooooo delicious!! I knew I would need some more protein to my meal to fill me up though because these dumplings only had two grams for the entire meal. So, I made an easy version of dal—or just plain spiced red lentils for that matter. I simmered 1/4 cup lentils in 1/2 cup water for about fifteen minutes with a pinch of cayenne pepper, salt, tumeric, curry powder and garam masala. They went perfectly with the dumplings and now I am quite full and content! I also had a simple spinach salad with woodstock dressing.
I’m off to school very early to work out some loan stuff then go to the library and work more on my project. I’m bringing a Nana’s pb cookie “bite” with me for a snack later on though!
