Hi, happy Monday!
It was a fairly low-key weekend over here. I took the weekend off from exercise which was much needed after last week’s workouts that left my hips feeling like cement.
[Sunday Night] It’s currently storming like mad, and I love it. I’ve been anticipating the forecasted thunder and lightening all weekend, and it finally hit. Earlier today it “felt like 92F” and the air was sticky; now, there’s so much water outside we may all float away. There’s nothing better than cozying up on a Sunday when it’s stormy outside. I think I like it that much more because, here in Florida, it’s stupid sunny all the time, so it’s nice to get a change in the weather.
Sunday included a dose of meal prep, which I thought I’d share for some recipe inspiration:
I made this white bean basil hummus.
Sunday dinner + leftovers: green powerhouse pesto plates.
I roasted up a chicken (organic, free-range) with orange + rosemary for the week, mostly for Nick.
Also on the menu this week is avocado caesar salad + sweet potato fries.
And then I baked a batch of flourless peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies at 9:30pm Sunday night, because why not!
Other weekend happenings included a 4-hour visit to the emergency animal hospital. In short, I slightly overreacted to Koba getting very sick to her stomach and not being able to keep water down (yep, worried dog mama). They did a blood test and when that came back normal, we opted to nix the IV fluids and anti-naseaua meds for some good ol’ rest and H20 water at home. Thankfully, she seems like her silly, hungry self again.
I discovered the Universal Thread™ brand at Target, and while I haven’t bought anything yet, they have some really cute, simple pieces for spring/summer — and they’re affordable to boot.
I’m looking forward to this week because a) the new blog design is scheduled to come to fruition, and b) my dad flies in Wednesday night and is staying for a week!
