I woke up to a nice surprise…
…hubby prepped the coffee maker last night so instead of waking up and having to brew coffee, it was waiting for me! How nice?
i whipped up some chocolate-date oatmeal (the dates were my only sweetener) with ground flaxseed meal and sliced almonds.
Lunch was pretty basic – leftovers from Sunday’s Prep Day soup, plus a freshly cracked box of Kashi crackers and some almonds later.
A surprise from hubby was the highlight of my workday – a Great Harvest mini cinnamon roll. Yum! I always love seeing hubby in the middle of the day…and a sweet treat isn’t bad either.
I came home to find hubby had purchased a new goodie – a new vacuum cleaner! We had a mini one we thought would be enough (since we don’t have any carpet, just rugs), but turns out we need a full size one.
Hubby also picked up some Great Harvest Honey Whole Wheat bread.
While I was home, we even got a package…
My TofuXpress Tofu Press!! I won this from @Nasoya on Twitter. Thank you Nasoya!!
I even got some recipes, recipe cards, and coupons!
Here’s a better shot of the press. I can’t wait to use this! I feel like I have a new toy. 😆
I prepped tonight’s veggies – organic broccoli. I had enough to pack up for tomorrow, plus some to steam for tonight.
I have a lot to do tonight, so I kept dinner quick and simple: Trader Joe’s breaded halibut (just toss it in the oven and let it cook away), steamed broccoli (with a light drizzle of melted organic butter), and Annie’s Mac and cheese.
Hubby picked up some two-bite cinnamon rolls from Earthfare. They weren’t much when I first opened them – cold, hard little rolls.
I freshened them up by warming them in the microwave where they were transformed into sweet little bites of heaven! I managed to only eat one of these and hubby had the other 2.
I think I was able to restrain myself since I had an Earthfare whole wheat vegan chocolate chip cookie waiting for me.
I had/have a whole other work day after my real work day tonight:
- a jewelry order (have to make the necklace, package, and prepare for shipment)
- helping a friend with their web site (it’s a toughie! they used real graphic designers and they put all kinds of really cool looking things that are really difficult to program. lol)
Project Hydrate Day #16
Check out yesterday’s recap for some more Project Hydrate tips.
My cup first thing is really improving my water intake. Otherwise, I’m consuming about the same amount while I’m at work.
- 1 cup water in the morning
- pink bottle ~4 cups
- 1/2 turquoise bottle ~1.5 cups
- 2 cups hot tea
Not too shabby.
One year ago today, I was blogging about the fabulous dinner in San Fran, including San Francisco’s best hot chocolate (and yes, it was pretty awesome! you should see the pictures!)
Did I mention I have some big announcements and giveaways in the works? I think I did…I can’t help it…I’m just so excited!
