Walking, Talking, and More Walking

Posted Jun 02 2008 6:03pm
Boy, did I walk tonight! Instead of running after work like I had planned, I took a walk with Mal down by the ocean. We walked for 1 hour and 20 minutes! We hadn't planned to do that much walking, but the weather was gorgeous, and we were having such a nice time chatting, we kept walking and talking.

We worked up quite an appetite after all of that walking! Towards the end of our walk, both of us had the "stomach grumbles," and we spent the last 10 minutes talking about what we should make for dinner when we got home. We decided on turkey meatball subs and tomato slices with fresh basil (from our patio garden) and mozzarella.

Tomato slices with basil, mozzarella, ground pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil... soooooo delish! Mal and I shared this plate.


I also had a small side salad with lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, and homemade Classic Dijon Vinaigrette.


For the turkey meatball sub, we used Trader Joe's frozen turkey meatballs, Nature's Promise whole wheat sub rolls, Walnut Acres Organic Tomato & Basil sauce, and a shredded cheddar cheese on top. My sub was just a half, but with 2 large turkey meatballs, 1/2 a plate of tomatoes and mozzarella, and a salad, I was plenty full!


From above... a 3-plate dinner!


About 20 minutes after eating dinner, my sweet tooth kicked in strong! Usually, if I eat a substantial dinner, I don't crave sweets. I ate a decent-sized dinner tonight, and somehow, I ended up with a killer craving for sugar. (I was actually sort of surprised.) I gave in, and made myself a 1/2 Joseph's pita with fluff (I found it buried in our cupboard) and a few peanut butter and chocolate chips. It was super sweet, but did the trick!

Blog Problems?

A reader commented yesterday about having trouble loading my blog. Has anyone else had issues? I tried loading my page a few times yesterday, and it took forever! Our wireless internet can be pretty sketchy at times because our router is a piece of crap, so I wasn't sure if it was just my internet connection or other people were having the same issue. Sorry if it has been an issue! I'll try looking into it some more.
