Restful Blur of a Sunday

26 01 2009

Sunday was a restful blur! I posted our getaway photos and went to the grocery store. I did a “huge” shopping trip because I literally have not stepped foot inside a grocery store since my last grocery store post! That is very unusual for me because I try to go a couple times a week and get little trips of fresher things. Since we have been travelling and will be gone again this weekend- I got lots of frozen veggies, fruit, egg whites ( in the carton they stay fresh for a long time) etc. I also found a bottle of wine from the vineyard we ate dinner at – wooohoo! It was actually cheaper than it was at the vineyard!

I could not possibly take a photo because it was a huge trip ( just over $100) but most of that stuff will last us for a good three weeks if not more. Plus, I went to a further away store and waited in line forever on top of going around the isles so I was concerned with getting everything back into refrigeration etc. Some great deals items: Sabra Hummus  ( it was $2 cheaper than closer grocery stores!) and for dipping- organic Fresh cut veggies ( worth the extra 25 cents/bag)!

My calves were so sore from hiking, in a good way though! I did lots of walking and grocery lifting, phew!

Yoga  ( apparently it was national yoga day!)

Studied terminology for my Food Principles quiz on Thursday

Searched and found several research articles for Vitamins class on Wednesday. I need to decide which one to send to my group members and do the synopsis of the article today.



Grocery store! I must have been on what I referred to before as “grocery store high” . I get so excited when I get deals on foods that I enjoy regularly and I also really enjoy having my kitchen stocked- it makes me feel “safe” almost- like I don’t need to worry about anything at all because I know I have enough.  Oh and I needed shampoo badly and I accidentally bought conditioner instead of shampoo on friday- so now I have shampoo- Yah!

Restful day with Jeff- it was nice to just relax and re-coop from our trip, cook a big pot of chili etc.

I watched Father of the Bride , that is such a good movie.

Some Eats:

Blueberry Smoothie: here want to try?

jeff’s mom gave us organic mixed greens saturday night (since we hadn’t been home or had food in the house) and Jeff had eaten some for dinner- So I used up those with some of my new veggies , organic sprouts and hummus. On the side I had vanilla oikos with some Go Lean cereal and Wheat Germ mixed in.

Chili: on top of salad with cornbread ( I threw this cornbread together but it was not good at all. I’m not sure what I did so I am not posting recipes for it). Jeff, a human vacuum, swore that it was good and devoured his. Oh well.

For The Chili:
I browned lean meat in the skillet with a dash of paprika,  black and red pepper, and tsp of oil. While that cooked, I also cooked organic red lentils ( i have had these for awhile). In the crock pot I put a can of chili beans, a can of drained kidney beans, the cooked, slightly mashed lentils, a big can of diced tomatoes, a little salsa, a little hot sauce,  some banana peppers ( I like them better than jalepenos), and some more red pepper flakes. Couldn’t be easier! I let it simmer together for a good 3 hours.

That white glob is a  Laughing Cow light spreadable cheese wedge: 1 BLOG 008 each one is only 35 calories with 2 g of fat and 2 g of protein and delicious!

Dailygoods: oh my goodness I hope you enjoy it! I have told others that it might be even better with a little sweetness added to it. I am a “plain” kinda gal so I just use the sweetness from my fruit but most people would enjoy maple syrup or brown sugar or whatever.
Mads: YOU are Awesome! πŸ™‚ thanks babydoll
Dori: oh I hope your boyfriend enjoys it!
Lauren: Hope your monday is as spectacular as can be!
