It’s been a good Monday! The sun was back out and everything that was planned went off without a hitch. I started the day with a bowl of blueberry oats:
2/3 cup water
1/3 cup Quaker oats
I’m on 11:30 lunch this week and had to run down to the venue where DD’s dance recital is to pick up the tickets for Friday night. Before heading out I ate a piece of whole grain bread with some peach blackberry jam spread on top.
Lunch was a hefty salad packed with spring mix, baked tofu and roasted carrots and sweet potatoes, all topped with some sweet onion salad dressing .
The dressing is made by Renee’s and tastes exactly like the dressing that I love on my subs at Subway!
Score! I munch on a baggie of carrot sticks over the course of the afternoon.
I had to have DD to her rehearsal by 6pm so I was proactive with dinner in placing a pork shoulder roast in the crock pot this morning on low seasoned with just some salt and pepper. When I got home I shredded the meat, tossed it with hickory BBQ sauce and served it over toasted thins with lettuce and dill pickles. I had more salad, too, but with Japanese Ginger dressing this time!
Dessert was strawberry rhubarb crisp with some Cool Whip free. A good, albeit early dinner. We were done eating by 5pm! I didn’t want to wait until after the rehearsal because there was the potential to be there until 11pm. As luck would have it we were outta there by 8:30. Here are some picture I took of her just before she hit the stage:
Hambone! I’m hopping to be able to post the video I took of her dance. I’ve not been successful with video posting. It seems to go along OK then ends up with an error. Not sure how to get around that in WLW! As we were walking back to the Jeep we witnessed a whole whack of Canadian geese crossing the (busy) road with their babies!
Cars had to stop to let them by. LOL!
In the next photo I got really close to the babies and Mama was not happy with me. She gave a few good hisses my way! Freaked DD right out.
CUTE! I just snacked on 2 rice cakes with AB & jam that were camera shy. Now I’m sipping on some Read My Lips tea from David’s Tea . YUM!
