This morning, I once again started my day with cereal. I have been thinking alot about this over the past couple of days and realized that I have a breakfast cycle. I get hooked on oats for a while and then I get hooked on cereal. I think it may be my bodies way of balancing my dosha. Anyway, today, I had some cinnamon start with almonds, a banana and vanilla almond milk. I think I like the cinnamon cereal best with the almond milk as it is much milder than the hemp milk and the cinnamon of the cereal really shines.
At work, things were out of control crazy. By the end of the day, I was asking people if it was a full moon. Was it? For lunch, the new chef made me a delightful lunch. It was poached shrimp with green beans, tomatoes and garlic chips with a poppy seed dressing. It was wonderful and by far the prettiest meal I may have ever eaten. This new chef is really kicking it up a notch (*wink to VeggieGirl).
A couple hours after lunch, The Pro showed up with starbuck’s, he got me a soy latte. Today, it seemed extra delicious, it tasted like toasted marshmallows. And with things so wacko, it was right on time despite the fact that it was in a paper cup.
The afternoon flew by and I, once again, stayed late. I am often times amazed at how an industry based on leisure can be so hectic. When I was leaving, I decided that I was in the mood for going out to dinner instead of making it at home. I hadn’t planned anything and my mental creativity was zapped. After a quick conversation with the dear husband, we decided on a new Greek place just a couple miles from home.
We ordered the Meze which is what I would consider a family style meal. Everything is brought to the table in dishes meant to be shared. The first course was cold appetizers with pita. It featured hummus, cucumber sauce, potato salad and roe dip. Forgive me for not using all of the greek names but honestly, I can’t pronounce them much less spell them. I really enjoyed the roe and the potato salad, I will be googling recipes for the roe dip in no time.
The second course was hot appetizers, meatballs, stuffed grape leaves, wings and spinach pie. I really enjoyed the spinach pie but nothing really left me wanting more.
The third course was grilled chicken, pork and beef along with greek salad. I enjoyed the beef the most, I put it on pita and smeared it with the roe dip!
And finally was dessert, the best part. We had baklava and rice pudding which worked out perfectly. The dear husband really liked the pudding and I really liked the baklava. Overall, it was a lovely meal and I think we will visit there often.
After dinner, we chatted for a bit before heading home. Once home, I spent some time catching up on all the blogs I need to read and then read for a VERY little while.
QOTD: Lately, I have been working alot of overtime and am finding time for very little else. I did the math and I have been giving 12 to 13 hours a day to work including getting ready, getting there and then actually working. And there really is no end in sight! What is your go to meal when you are really wiped out? And what about exercise? I have been trying to force myself to get up really early and it does not seem to be working AT ALL.
