What a week. We caved and got ourselves a pizza earlier in the week and of course, shared a bottle of wine. It's been a month of appointments that I'll call health maintenance. Since we are fortunate enough to have decent health care, we make sure all the parts and pieces are in good working order by getting an annual physical.
After a few appointments we decided to indulge with the pizza. It's always such a drag to schedule other appointments for followups on issues so....yeah. Pizza.
Also, a coworker departed for another agency so there was a party.....which meant I ate 2 doughnuts. Brilliant, huh? After losing almost 12 pounds I eat two doughnuts.
Anyway..........we opted to stop and pick up some salmon for a healthier dinner one day this week. It was excellent. A bit of soy and honey and turned once in a grill pan. Served with healthy fresh steamed broccoli and baked sweet potato. Now that's getting back on track!
There was enough salmon left to make a pretty good salad for the next day's lunch too. I pulled stems off fresh spinach, chopped some green onions and cut up the leftover salmon. Dressing was an Onion Dijon vinegrette. (Forgive the blue plastic bowls. They are the designated bowls for work)
Leftovers are the desired choice for work lunches. Yellow rice with black beans accompanied our salads. You wouldn't believe the number of people at work who eat lunch out every single day. That can be expensive. Sometimes we go out for Indian but it's not very often.
That's about it from our neck of the woods. I am still diligently reading 11/22/63 by Stephen King and hoping to finish it soon. Sometimes the reading time doesn't pan out. This was my choice for a reading challenge theme at Girlxoxo this month. Aja is still hanging in with us and enjoying her walks and rides to the park. At work we had an active shooter class (not how to be one, how to react scenario kinda class) which I would like to share with you soon. Good class and information.
