I got home extra late today (traffic was nuts, even for LA), so the workout almost didn't happen. I threw on my gym clothes and tinkered around a little but ultimately just did some abs and called it quits. Probably a good idea, because tomorrow is sure to be a tough one. More on that later.
When I did get home, I found this:
|Caught in the act!|
Lately, Scout's been jumping up on top of our blinds, so yesterday I put the squirt bottle on top of the blinds to prevent him from doing it. Well, when I got home today, the squirt bottle was upright on the floor, and the cap was off about a foot away from the bottle. How did it get there?! Any brilliant ideas? It's a screw-on cap, and our cat just isn't that talented. Bizarre, no?
All day I dreamed about what I should eat for dinner. (This isn't abnormal; I spend a LOT of time thinking about my next meal.) I finally decided on breakfast for dinner but wasn't sure what I would make, and it turned out to be a game time decision: half a whole wheat pita, a handful of spinach, and two fried eggs. Later, I ate half of a baked sweet potato topped with peanut butter and cinnamon, thanks to an idea from Courtney. Simple and delicious, as all game time decisions should be. (<--What? Doesn't make sense. Just move on.)
I know sweet potato and peanut butter sounds weird (though it is sweet and salty, a delightful combo), but I've been much more willing to try new things like that. My family doesn't really eat weird stuff; in fact, I would say I've always been a "plain and simple" girl when it comes to food. I like tasting all the flavors of the various foods I'm eating rather than blending them all together. I get it from my dad, who generally refuses to add "extras" to his foods. But lately I've been willing to try new recipes, flavor combinations, and foods--as you can see from tonight's meal.
Tonight I'm working on a few things for work and making sure the house is all set for visitors, because Mom and Pop are coming to town tomorrow! They're staying at a hotel tomorrow and then staying with me the next night, and I can't wait. I haven't seen them since our trip to Hawaii, which is much too long! We have plans to work out tomorrow after I get home from work and then go out to dinner. Mom is sure to kick my butt with a tough workout--or perhaps I'll be the one bringing on a challenge. On Wednesday, I'm making a belated Mother's Day dinner (though I'm sure Mom will help), but I haven't decided what to make yet. A new recipe might be on our horizon...
Hope you made it through Monday alright, and I for one am looking forward to tomorrow, when my parents get here!
What weird flavor combinations do you like? Anything I should try?
