Good news! I’ve discovered that there are actually more hours in the day! Unfortunately you find them before 6:00am. I’ve been up this week around 5:15am to get a few more things done before my day “begins.” I usually wait to eat breakfast with Hailey, so instead, I’ve been starting with drinks. Drinks at 5:15am? Now we’re talking!
A cup of ACV and lemon, followed by a cup of green tea.
By 8:00am, I felt like super woman (because she feels accomplished, right?) and I went to get Hailey up for breakfast.
2 eggs scrambled with cherry tomatoes, kale, parsley and herbed goat cheese. Half a banana and 1/2 slice of wheat toast with peanut butter.
We skipped the gym because our pediatrician told us that the flu has really kicked up into high gear this past week and I have too much to do these next few days to risk it… not that hanging around our house is much better. David just got over a nasty stomach flu. He lost 10 pounds in 2 days. I’ve disinfected the house twice and washed every blanket in scolding water.
Brown rice, Great Northern beans (from my food prep), kale, cherry tomatoes, feta and balsamic dressing.
I ate a snack while Hailey ate lunch. She went down for a nap and I went out for a run.
Gosh I’ve missed running outside! It felt amazing.
Salad with leftover chicken and leftover roasted potatoes. Seltzer on the side.
After lunch and nap Hailey and I headed towards the mall; I thought she may need new shoes. I was right. She measured at 5.5 and I’ve been squeezing her foot into 4.5. There was only one problem… Hailey was scared of putting new shoes on her feet.
We caused quite the scene.
To cheer her back I thought we’d visit the Easter bunny, but the cheapest you can get in to see the guy is $22. Are you kidding me? Who does this bunny think he is? Santa?
We waved from behind the blockade.
Back home- more snacks!
After Hailey went to bed (we’re finally back on schedule- 7pm!), I got to playing in the kitchen.
I’ve never cooked whole clams before and it was so much fun! I loved watching the pop open and scooping them out.
I had so much fun that I forgot to sauté the kale. Oh well, dinner was great as a one dish meal!
I had two servings on the linguine with clams.
Around 8:00pm I sat on the couch and knew I wasn’t getting back up. One episode of Glee (I’m so behind) while David played on the computer and 1 episode of Rules of Engagement later, we were off to bed… at 9:30pm. It was glorious.
Thanks Jenn for hosting WIAW!
What is one ingredient you’ve never cooked with because you’re scared of it?
Clams were a first for me; now I need to work up my courage to tackle crazy vegetables like kohlrabi.
