Today was a day of a million little tasks. After dropping Atticus off at school, I had to work on a newsletter, then shower, eat lunch, volunteer at Atticus’ school, take him to a dentist appointment, try to finish the newsletter and then try to get to the gym. I’m really glad to have a few, go-to dishes that I can make easily. But man, I hate having to rush when I’m eating. I pretty much only do it three times a day, I wanna enjoy it. If I can’t have wine, give me this at least, cruel world!
Despite going to the grocery store daily, we’re somehow really low on food. I need to do a big produce replenish tomorrow. (Would “Produce Replenish” make a good band name?) I’m so glad we have so many good grocery stores nearby. I keep reading about people on the Whole30 Facebook group who live two hours from the nearest Trader Joe’s. Is that any way to live?!
I went to the gym in the evening because of the busy morning schedule. It was a great workout today, the only issue is that it’s been foggy all day and the sport court we run on was pretty slick. I still ran my normal, slow pace but I made it seem like I was only running slow because of the conditions.
Breakfast was a boring mash-up of what we had on hand. So eggs and potatoes it was! I scrambled in some onions and peppers and spinach and topped with avocado. I really like to use this Italian seasoning blend I got from Trader Joe’s in these breakfast dishes, it’s especially lovely with the potatoes.
For lunch I made up a salad, also with whatever we had around. That wound up being tomatoes, avocado, turkey, bacon and Green Goddess dressing.
And for dinner, I had figured we’d have the Bolognese sauce from yesterday over carrot noodles. But Biff isn’t the biggest fan of those, so while I was at the gym he improvised a nice chicken dish.
So…takeaways from today: being busy makes eating just one more thing on the to-do list; run gingerly if it’s wet; plan meals your spouse doesn’t like so he’ll cook instead. Genius!
