Memorial Day

I would like to take a moment at the start of this blog to remember those who have given their lives so that we may be free and to thank those that have served or are serving our country and their families.

There is no Adventure Monday to report on today. I spent most of my day at work, though I did spend some quality time with the kitties this morning before heading out (while doing laundry and dishes).

I woke up at 6am to get my produce box off the porch (yay for holiday delivery) and did not go back to bed because I needed to get some stuff done before leaving at 10am to head to work, so I am pretty darn tired right now (its 11:30pm). In addition to working, I also went to the movies tonight and saw The Avengers for the second time. I definitely recommend it if you haven’t seen it, but you must stay until the VERY end of the credits, not just the initial credits, it will be worth it, trust me!

Anyway, I want to keep this short so I can head to bed, so without further ado, here is today’s produce delivery:

I received spinach, green leaf lettuce, cucumbers, onions, potatoes, tangerines & apricots. I also added a few items to the order as usual: bananas, peaches, whole wheat cider bread, pumpkin seeds & roma tomatoes.

And now its off to bed…

How did you spend your Memorial Day?

Yummy Monday

Its Monday so that means another Full Circle delivery today!!

Today’s produce box included: green leaf lettuce; celery; baby spinach; carrots’ 2 ruby grapefruits; 3 oranges; 3 kiwi and a bag of crimini mushrooms.

As I have in previous weeks, I also ordered some additional items: a cucumber; green onion; green bell peppers; bananas; whole wheat bread; whole wheat pasta and pumpkin seeds.

As has become our tradition, my roommate and I sat down Sunday night to plan out our menu for dinners for the week based on what’s coming in the produce box:

Monday- Chicken, spinach salad & bruschetta
Tuesday- Shrimp, kale & coconut rice
Wednesday- Homemade veggie pizzas

The rest of the week we will each be preparing meals on our own as I will be working or not home those nights.

For the rest of my meals, I will be focusing on my favorite breakfast of peanut butter toast & fruit and taking cheese sandwiches for lunches.

ADVENTURE MONDAYS

As my roommate and I have both been off on Monday’s lately, my roommate has declared Mondays to be “Adventure Mondays” where we will go out and explore the various sights around Seattle whenever we both have the day off. Today she didn’t tell me where we were going, just loaded me and the dog in the car and we headed out. We ended up at Gasworks Park.

We  then went to see the Fremont Troll, had lunch at a dog friendly pub in Fremont then did some window shopping. We finished out the day with grocery shopping, then came home and cooked dinner together. It was a really awesome day and I am looking forward to our next “Adventure Monday!”

When was the last time you took an adventure day?
