Flecks of Green

Yesterday was a doozy of a day that left me drained and sacked out on the couch by 4pm. All related to the fact my sleep schedule got gorked.

For multiple reasons I was up at 4:30am yesterday morning.  That’s early and way too early for my body to comfortably handle. Regardless I had to plow on with my day.

One stop was out to the salon for a trim. The best part about going to a salon is that it is completely acceptable to go walking in looking like a hobo.  I appreciate this more than you can imagine. A place where I can wear fuzzy socks and elastic-waist pants?

I am all over it.

But by 4pm that early morning rise was catching up to me and my brain was so fogged that thinking and creating sentences that actually made sense was challenging.  The couch and Law and Order was needed. I snugged with the boxer while the pizza stone heated up and got super hot.

Sticking with the minimalist approach again this week, I kept things simple with this pizza.

  • Homemade Dough
  • Spiced up tomato sauce
  • Shredded grass-fed mozzarella and grated parm
  • Spinach
  • Chopped broccoli
  • Spicy Italian Sausage
  • Mushrooms (Scott’s side)

We watched a little TV while we ate our pizza. I forgot just how much I love broccoli on pizza. So good!

I was tucked in bed by 9pm and asleep before 10pm. That makes me a happy happy lady!

Broccoli on pizza and in bed by 9pm, it’s all about the little things.

The last time I was in Whole Foods I noticed these reusable produce bags.  Each one was under $2 which is a really good deal so I purchased two of them.  They are by BringItBags and I was excited to find them.  I’ve looked for reusable produce bags before but the ones I found were always crazy expensive. Ten dollars for a produce bag? Sorry, but no.

I’m curious to see how these work out.  Do you use reusable produce bags?

    I have a set I got on Amazon for a reasonable price back before they were widely offered in local stores. I try to use them often, but sometimes I forget. Mainly they’re used in the warmer months at the farmers market. I love them, though! My only complaint is that I can’t keep leafy greens in them because they wilt. I still have to opt for plastic in that case, but the plastic always goes in the recycling bin when I’m done.

    • Nicole, yeah unless you prep and store the greens right away, I don’t think these would be good for long term fridge storage. I’ll have to see how they workout on my next trip. I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me that the plastic ones could be recycled. Lightbulb!

  2. Thanks for the suggestion. I need a few more produce bags – I have plenty of shopping bags, but not enough produce bags. The chico bags are nice, but they are a little more expensive.
