Since I had the day off yesterday, I didn’t get out of bed until 8:00. I did my blog post, started to straighten up a bit and then all of a sudden it was 10:00 and I hadn’t had breakfast.
This was amazeballs. Two slices of homemade bread, 1 breakfast sausage, 1 cup baby spinach, 1/4 cup of egg whites, then 3/4 of an ounce of smoked sharp cheddar cheese. Breakfast comes in at 464 calories, 21 fat, 35 carbs, 2.2 fiber and 33 protein.
Then my Mom got here around 10:30. We dropped her car off at our repair guy. Her dealership and listed a laundry list of things that needed to be done, to the tune of $2400 dollars!
Then it was Goodwill time! We lucked out because we are both members of good will, so we always get 10% off, but then they had a scratch off ticket for additional % off.
Long time readers will know that I haven’t shopped retail in over 15 years. Tony thinks its gross that I buy used clothes. He’s convinced that people pee in these clothes, then die, and then the family donates them to Goodwill. I didn’t find any dead peoples clothes this trip, but I did find a great glass pitcher that fits perfectly in our fridge.
Then it was time for lunch!
While the service was super slow, lunch was delicious. We weren’t in any hurry so we had a nice lunch catching up.
We each got a bento box – mine was teriyaki steak, she wanted salmon but they didn’t have any, so she got chicken. I don’t know what they do to the rice, but its so good – slightly sweet. I ate about 3/4 of this plate – have no idea how many calories!
As luck would have it, there was a new thrift store right near where we had lunch. My mom found the cutest pair of Life is Good capri pants – neither of us knew that Life is Good made pants!
I bought this shirt for myself, even though I am pretty sure it’s a man’s shirt – it was on the $1 rack – and I am a sucker for the $1 rack! I’ll probably wear this shirt while grilling without a bra, because I am klassy like that.
And after a few more errands, we were on our way back home when Tony called to tell us that my Mom’s car was done! Guess what? $350! The back brakes didn’t need to be replaced, or her sway bars – I think car dealership repair people are a-holes.
As luck would have it, it was dinner time so Momma stayed for dinner.
I could have sworn on a stack of bibles that I had boneless, skinless chicken thighs that I was going to grill with twice baked potatoes and zucchini on the side. Could not find them to save my life – I have two refrigerators and a deep freeze (I know, its kind of ridiculous for just two people!), but no luck.
Plan B! Grilled Italians sausage with pasta!
Okay, here is a strange giveaway!! I found this book at Goodwill.
While I don’t pay attention to Jane Fonda’s political views, I do like her healthy living lifestyle that she’s continued throughout her life. Even though this book is from 1996, I read through some of the recipes and actually liked a lot of them. Better yet?
It’s autographed!! I googled her signature, and I am convinced its real.
So all you have to do to win this cookbook is leave me a comment telling me what you favorite cookbook is – and if you have a lot, maybe one cookbook you use more than any other.
I didn’t have any official workout yesterday, but I think my Mom and I walked at least a mile, but its not official, so I won’t count it towards my 100 miles in August.
Alright, I have to shut off the computer – big storms coming our way!! We need the rain!
Make it a great day! I’ll pick a random winner of the cookbook tomorrow.
Thanks for spending the day with me Momma! I love you!
