For lunch I had a salad with spinach, roasted squash and chicken with arugula pesto. It was a new combo for me, but I loved it. I also had some jerky, dried apricots and an apple later in the afternoon.
We had a four hour drive to Decatur Friday afternoon so I picked up an iced coffee for the road. Our hosts were so nice, they were grilling burgers, chicken and salmon when we arrived! I brought sweet potatoes and salad to round out my meal. We stayed up late drinking (water for me) and talking and I was starving again around midnight so I snacked on some veggies from a little pre-packed tray from Trader Joe's with guacamole.
|I swear there is a burger under all of those veggies!|
I arrived home to the smell of bacon cooking in the kitchen. Can't beat that. I cleaned up and got to work in the kitchen on my own breakfast. I brought plenty to share so I cooked fajita veggies and scrambled eggs to share with my friends. We topped it all off with guacamole and salsa...and, of course, bacon.
We had a long drive home today (Sunday) so I ate a big breakfast of chicken and sweet potatoes topped with salsa and guacamole with a bowl of bananas and blueberries on the side. We hit Starbucks on the way out of town and I picked up an Iced Americano to sip on the way home.
I knew I would not make it through a four hour drive without a meal so I kept my cooler close by for easy access. Around lunch time I finished off the carrots and snap peas in my veggie tray with more of the Whole9 Cashew Hummus. I also finished off the Applegate Farms roast beef that I had packed. I got hungry again a couple hours later (shocker!) and ate some blueberries, dried apricots and pecans.
After being in the car all morning I was ready to move my legs so I went on a bike ride with Kevin. I was pretty hungry and knew we would be eating a late dinner so I had a Lara Bar before our ride. For dinner I made sautéed mixed vegetables (and when I say mixed, I mean that I threw the most random mix of veggies that I possibly could into a pan and turned up the heat) and shrimp with arugula pesto.
It was a great weekend, but I am happy to be home with my husband and my little fur babies. Tomorrow I start my new job and this week I will start my first class in school. The times they are a changin'...
