Another One Bites the Dust
Yes indeed this day has come to an end with no exercise and I am not in the best mood. So I will try to be brief. Bfast: Bowl of cereal with 1 cup Twigs, Flakes and Clusters, 3/4 cup Kashi Sunshine, 1.5 cup skim with 1/2 scoop protein powder in Vanilla, 1 shot blueberries, 1 small sliced banana, 1/2 shot sunflower seeds, 1/2 shot raisins and a smile on my face (this morning):
I had this bar (very tasty, but wolfed it down before really getting to enjoy it) for my mid morning snack:
This was my lunch I packed for work; 1 serving of TJ's Rice Mac and Cheese with a dash of cayenne, chili powder and pepper with a salad on the side of spring mix with raw broccoli, red bell, Persian cucumber and a dash of Goddess dressing:
At work I had another Green Tea Frappe (obsessed) and when I got home I had this Itty Bitty Apple:
Later when I found out Sean would be home in time for a late-ish dinner I had this Soy Joy bar in mango, my consensus: bad, like a stale cookie and the flavor was weak and almost rancid -ewwww!
Plus it didn't hold me at all, so I went to the fridge to have the rest if the Mac and Cheese. I felt better and full so I was not tempted to eat as I cooked and not tempted to eat all the Mashed potatoes I was making for Sean! No picture of the rice and cheese but it was just like lunches sans salad.
For dinner I wanted to make a nice meal with my tip money! So I bought some New York Strip Steaks, potatoes to mash (Sean's fave) and artichokes!
Here are the green flowers of the earth! I steamed them:
The meal turned out just ok. I was unhappy with how the steaks turned out. I am really no expert on cooking steak, I have only ever cooked them ONCE! Sean usually BBQ's or broils them. I tried to Pan Fry them. They were over cooked and tough and too much like the steak in Napoleon Dynamite- HAHA~!
We had a a glass of wine with dinner from our case of Mystery wine and some Red pepper hummus and Goddess for dipping (but neither of us ended up dipping). I ate all of my artichoke but only had a spoon cleaning's worth of mashed taters.
Here is my steak- boo not so pretty I know:
I ate 1/4 of it and then said "the heck with this" Sean ate all of his (good sport) I must be spoiled because I don't really like steak to begin with unless it is very good quality and perfectly cooked!
