Happy Friday girlies! I know everyone has been looking forward to the weekend and its finally here! Tonight is kind of a chill night for me, I think my friend Tina and I are going out tomorrow night.
Today was a pretty relaxing day as well. I got in a little gym time. I only did 35 minutes on the eliptical today because I just wasnt really feeling it for some reason...I was nervous because I have been waiting to hear back from my interview...but a little exercise is better than none at all, right?! After the gym I went into the grocery store to pick up a "few" things, and ended up with a little more than I had anticipated! They had so many veggies on sale!
These broccoli sprouts were on sale too, the PERFECT thing for my sammies, for sure :).
And of course I had to get stocked up on my fruit: apple (cameo and crispini, bananas, oranges, and grapefruit).
Back when I was student teaching and eating lunch in the teacher's lounge, I always saw this one teacher bringing these salads for lunch and thought they looked kinda good and convenient.
I decided to pick on up (since it was on sale too) for something quick for lunch...since I was STARVING. Upon further investigation of the salad when I got home, i realized that it kinda sucked. All it had was romaine lettuce, that was IT for the veggies, and then some grilled chicken, some gross looking cheese, croutons, and dressing. I definitely had to "health" it up a litte. I quickly tossed the croutons and the cheese and just used the lettuce, chicken, and dressing...then I added in some spinach leaves, tomatoes, and cucumber...it ended up looking something like this:
The dressing and the chicken were actually pretty good...and once I added the extra veggies the salad was pretty decent.
I worked a little after that and then came home and the roomie and I cooked up some stir-fry using this HUMONGOUS bag of stir-fry veggies she bought. That girl and buying in bulk, im telling ya. ;)
We cooked up some noodles to go with it and mixed it with soy sauce and the stir-fry mix. Here is my plate:
and a small glass of wine...hey its Friday isnt it?!
Fudgy peanut butter chocolate vitatop, with cool whip on top. YUMMM!!!
Oh yeah, something VERY exciting happened today. I walked out of my door to go to work and there was THIS laying on my door step.
What is you ask?!.....A package from Mike!! In case you didnt know Mike is my boyfriend, and he currently lives on the complete opposite side of U.S.! It was a very good surprise for the day :)
Inside was a book that I told him I had been wanting to add to my collection of books for my future classroom. It is one that all of my professors recommended. He knew that I had wanted it because I showed it to him one day, but decided to wait until later to buy it. AND he got it for me!
Well, that is about all of the excitement for the night, I think. Ill probably call it a night soon.
But first I have a question for you gals...those of you who eat Tofu regularly, I really wanna start making it too...like in sandwiches and such. How do you cook it and season it?! Please give me ideas!!!
Thanks and tons of love to everyone!! Goodnight! <3
