Hey everyone! I am back home and ready to relax!
Jeff grilled me a big ol fillet of salmon using some lite soy sauce and black pepper and olive oil ( NOO)
I sectioned it into 4 portions and he also grilled asparagus spears on the grill with some salt, pepper and the same olive oil…
This was my first time using the NOO olive oil (it came in my package this past friday!).
It was fantastic, it really helped seal in the juice of the salmon and the chicken we also grilled. The asparagus was WONDERFUL! It is for sure my favorite vegetable.
It was so nice outside and perfect grilling weather!

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect because I normally am not a huge fan of ginger. I totally enjoyed these cookies though! They taste very much like two ginger snaps but more mellow in the spice department. The creme in the middle clearly reminds me of an oreo, so these were delicious! I shared the entire package with my Metabolism Class. Hi Everyone!! I hope you stop by and comment away and glad that you enjoyed the cookies!
I think the general consensus was they were delicious if you like the ginger flavor and a few have had them before and really enjoy Newman’s Own Products. Our professor met Nel Newman at a conference before and he likes the brand because they contribute their profits to charity. Thanks again Sally!
Lunch Leftovers from last night, we almost always cook 4 servings of most things and use the other two for lunches the next day or so. I definitely never waste leftovers!
Two halves of local sweet potatoes, one purple one orange.. I know, it looks so weird! It tastes exactly like a sweet potato but the texture is just slightly more firm so I bet they would make excellent fries. Also in there was some Kashi Curry Pilaf and chicken cooked with hot sauce.
Chocolate & Cherry Oats
Breakfast was old fashioned oats made with water and half a scoop of chocolate protein powder in the microwave. I added wheat germ, peanut butter, and frozen cherries to it after it was finished, which defrosted the cherries super fast. It was almost like chocolate covered cherries, but it smelled like it more than anything!
*I also had an unpictured coffee at Starbucks this morning while studying for my exam*
How was everyone’s Tuesday? What is your favorite thing to do when the weather gets nicer and you have more light in the day?
