Well, I already finished The Rogue! Can you believe it? I got so into it while on the treadmill this morning that before I knew it the book was over. I’ve always been an incredibly fast reader—I wasn’t an English major for nothing! 🙂 The book was good…had the “I-just-can’t-put-this-down” effect but I wasn’t very fond of the ending. But….that’ where I think Danielle Steel sort of fails. The endings just seem to neatly tie everything up fast and come too easy and too predictably. You guys need to read it and let me know what y’all think!
I did 40 minutes on the treadmill this morning along with some abs on the ball. I ran for about 25 minutes then walked for the other 15 minutes on a steep incline (finishing my book!). It was a pretty good workout and got me nice and sweaty. I refueled with a summer salad for lunch!
I used the leftovers of last night’s salmon (I didn’t weigh this but I’m just guessing I had 4 ounces of salmon left) and put it atop a salad of romaine lettuce, chopped bell pepper and a couple random leftover roasted new potatoes that I found in the fridge here. I drizzled it all with a little of Annie’s Balsamic Vin. and had a serving of kashi crackers on the side and an ice cold pom-lemonade! I mixed a small amount of blueberry pom juice into a glass of icy lemonade and it tasted ridiculously yummy. I don’t usually drink sugary things like soda or lemonade on a daily basis but for a once and a while treat, you can’t beat it!
I got a new memory card for my camera and it claims to hold 16 minutes of video time. That’s perfect because after 16 minutes you all would be quite bored with me, I’m sure! I really enjoyed doing it yesterday and I’m already hoping to do another (maybe on nougatine?) next weekend. It also would be fun to start doing “virtual tours” of my fridge so you guys can visualize more of my food. First I must clean the fridge though! I’m very open to video suggestions so if there is something y’all want to see, voice it and I will try to make it happen! It adds such a fun (and cheesy) element to the blog I think!
I also got a new book at the store! The cover was ripped but it was the only copy and after reading the inner flap I knew it was a must-have. It’s basically one woman’s culinary memoir from her childhood being abandoned in Korea, moving to New Orleans and then to France. It looks amazing and actually as soon as I finish this post I’m going to make some iced tea and dive right into it!
I get to pick up Ryan tonight from the airport and we are going out to pizza!!!! We have been talking about it all week and even though I’m not sure if he feels the hottest today (last I heard they were getting the priest to do jager bombs at the bar………), he’s all ready for pizza!
