September 26th, 2008: Lunch and Dinner

Hi guys! My Friday was a little meh today so I’m trying to end it with a little more spark. :D Since I didn’t get my veggie overload last night with dinner I decided I need to make sure I did that today for lunch.

Veggie overload

Veggie overload

I pulled out stuff from the fridge and sauteed it up in some olive oil. There’s some shredded cabbage, red onion, green pepper, yellow squash, carrots, and some sugar peas. I tossed the in the leftover apple spice chick sausage too. I seasoned it with some S&P, garlic powder, and chili powder and added in some soy sauce and a little bit of chick broth for some extra flavor. Yum! We both had two big bowls (Scott’s bigger of course ;) ).

Cantaloupe

I needed some fruit since it was lunchtime, so I pulled out the cantaloupe. I didn’t even give us bowls, we just ate out of the container. :p The two of us almost polished off that whole thing!

Then I ran out to get my hair cut. *sigh* My regular stylist was out on leave because she had surgery on her foot. She’s back now but jam backed with appointments, mine isn’t until Oct. 23! And I scheduled that app last month too! Anyways, in the mean time I’ve been cutting my own hair. I’ve tried having others do it but no one ever gets it right. Well today I decided to just suck it up and go to one of those walk-in places in the shopping plazas. I figured they could at least even everything out and trim up the ends. I didn’t feel like having to deal with cutting my own because clean up is a pain and I can’t see everything clearly to make sure it’s even. So I go and the girl was nice enough but she didn’t cut enough off. And even though I explained what I wanted done, it didn’t happen. I came home and still had to cut my own hair. Make it shorter and give the layers more umph. Anyways that took me till mid-afternoonish. Then I got hungry.

Hummus and Triscuits

I munched on some roasted red pepper hummus and some Triscuits (I know not very healthy crackers). Scott was hungry too, so he joined me.

Yum!

Yum!

I also pulled out a handful of raisins to munch on. I have discovered these are perfect snack for me when I start to get hungry and need something to keep it at bay. I don’t know why but these always do the trick. While we snacked we talked about what we were going to do for dinner. What I had planned earlier in the week I ended up not being in the mood for. What I wanted was a huge salad. However I didn’t have any salad stuff. Normally I do but last trip to the store they were all out of spinach and romaine.

I needed to have a salad, so we decided to run over and pick up some goodies.

Dinner and drinks

Dinner and drinks

Of course me being me, I can’t ever go to the store and just get what I need. I must scout and see what goodies I can find! I did come away with lots of stuff like tubs of Fage! I picked up 0% and 2% :woohoo: No Chobani though, I can’t find that here.

Anyways on to the salad! This salad had:

  • Romaine
  • Spinach
  • Cucumbers
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Banana peppers
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Shredded cheddar
  • Pieces of rotisserie chicken

I had ranch dressing on top (not too much!) and a little chick wing on the side. Drinks were the same mocktails as before but this time with some frozen pineapple which gave it perfect background flavor.

And that was my day! Now I’m going to relax and probably grab a beer. I may also watch the debate and pop some “presidential debate popcorn”. :p See you tomorrow!
