October 1st, 2008: Lunch and Dinner

Hi guys! I will be honest, I did not get everything on my to-do list done, but I got most of it! I busted butt around the house today. Close to lunch time I started getting hungry.

I put out a small bowl of raisins while I worked on lunch. I only had a few because I was chopping and sauteeing.

Now I have been trying to keep Wednesdays “meat free” except for chicken broth because I use it in everything. However today it was so gloomy and chilly out that soup was in order. I’m not one for veggie soup, it’s okay but it’s not a favorite. And I didn’t want anything heavy like a bisque or cream soup so I made a soup with some chicken and sun-dried tomato chicken sausage. There were veggies in there, onion, celery, carrots, and green beans. I also added some of the leftover pasta from yesterday’s salads and the roasted chickpeas. It was pretty yummy and hit the spot but not sure I would make it again. I had most of my bowl and some of the kashi crackers. The bread and butter was for Scott.

After lunch it was back to the grind of getting stuff knocked off my to-do list. As I was busy running around the house trying to get more organized (I swear it seems never ending trying to get the house in order) I heard some movement and rustling around the office. I think I inspired Scott to get the office cleaned up. ;) My side of the office is organized, it’s his side that needs a little help every now and then.

Even though I was running around doing stuff I was still a wee bit chilly and needed something to warm me up. I’m calling this chai latte because that’s what it tasted like even though it’s not really chai. I have Honey Vanilla White Tea by Celestial Seasonings and it tastes and smells exactly like chai. I heated up some vanilla soymilk and steeped the tea bags in the soymilk. Mmmm so good! I will definitely be doing this again.

Eventually it was time to stop doing stuff for another day and make supper. I did keep this meat free! We had salmon patties, some roasted veggies (carrots, onions, green peppers, and radishes) and I had half a baked potato with butter, S&P, and a wee bit of sour cream. I ate all my salmon, my potato, and a good bit of my veggies. I tossed the veggies with some olive oil, soy sauce, S&P, garlic powder, and some seasoning blend and roasted them at 425 for about 1/2 an hour. I love roasted veggies, carrots especially.

Cleaned up the dinner mess and now I’m off to get ready for SF class tonight. Unfortunately it will be a late night since class ends at 9pm. I’m hoping to be in bed by 10:30. *fingerscrossed*
