Hello and happy almost Friday! For a short 4 day week, this one has been dragging for me. Since Monday I’ve been dopey with sinus pressure, a bit tired and dragging through workouts, so I’m looking forward to relax time this weekend.
For lunch I had leftover tempeh stir-fry and salad.
The stir-fry is topped with nooch and hemp seeds, pretty standard and not too exciting for me I realize. But the avocado-based guac dressing on the salad was great on day 2, no browning or bitterness because of the fresh lemon juice used in it.
After work I ventured to our local farmer’s market and came up with a sneaky solution for the No Dogs rule, I carried my pooch in her carrier backpack. And she liked it, got to watch all the people from her safe little carrier away from ogling kids. Good for me since I didn’t have to worry about her getting too nervous and nipping. She’s a rescue and has always been nervous about strangers, especially active kids coming at her. It’s hard because she’s so cute, everyone wants to grab her. Maybe I could get The Dog Whisperer on her. I love the farmer’s market, but it’s on the way home after I pick up my dog, so I always have her with me. Dropping her off at home first takes too long and is out of the way and leaving her in a hot car is not an option. And no, her carrier is not pink with jewels all over it. :-P It’s actually a normal looking camo backpack.
Anyway, for $20 I scored pretty good.
A couple of zucchini varieties including round ones that I’ve never tried, huge tomatoes, fresh red onions, tons of apricots, peaches and fresh figs. That one huge zucchini has spiralizer written all over it!
When I got home, I found my husband in the kitchen working away on a vegan dinner of lentils, quinoa and veggies! And for a non-vegan, he did an amazing job!
Curry lentils and quinoa with chopped onions, garlic, yellow pepper and carrots and steamed broccoli. This is something I won’t discourage. :-)
He also received his new running shoes to try out.
Vibram Five Fingers or un-shoes? He took a test run in them after dinner and reported they pretty much feel like barefoot running and force you to use and strengthen more muscles in your feet. I really want to try a pair, but am too chicken to order them online because of my huge and odd-shaped feet, my 2nd toe is longer than my big toe. So I want to be able to try on different sizes and styles before buying, something I might find time to do this weekend.
