Oh what a day!
Payday or the day after are just crazy for me. It's a day that starts bright and early and tends to go full turbo until long after dinner. Even worse when these days fall on Tuesday which is the day my dear husband has college classes.
Know what that means???
It means he runs home from work, arrives around 4pm, sits down to eat dinner really quickly, then jumps in the shower, changes from his uniform and he is out the door to make the 40 minute drive to college. Which for me means, dinner has to be ready and on the table by no later than 4pm.
Goodness. Sometimes I wonder where I get the energy.
But let me tell you about my day.
Early this morning I headed out to get groceries. By the time I got home it was 11am, and by the time I got everything packed away it was noon and that meant lunch for the kiddos.
I finished tidying things up and sat down to have a quick bite to eat, then it was homeschool time and of course by the time that was done I had to rush into the kitchen and get dinner made and in the oven to bake for 35 minutes and be ready for hubby at 4pm.
While I was cooking I went into the fridge to get something and noticed that my egg holder was empty. I did a quick mental check and thought "how odd, I could have sworn I bought eggs this morning."
Then a wave of panic hit me. Oh.my.gosh. I left the bag in the car all day. UGH!
Ran out there to get it only to realize that it was 2 bags which included a dozen eggs, sour cream, laughing cow swiss cheese wedges, pepperoni, deli roast beef and some cupcakes I bought the kids.
I can NOT believe I did that. I had to throw it all out, save for the cupcakes which were fine, just with the frosting melted.
Have a wonderful husband who bought everything I needed on his way home...but boy did I feel like an idiot. I have never done anything like this before, I could just kick myself.
We did manage to sit down to a delicious meal. Remember I said I'm starting to count calories? Well I have found a ton of amazing recipes that are low calorie, low fat and weight watcher friendly. I have like a gazillion bookmarked and will be making them in the next few weeks.
Tonight's dinner was Chicken Enchilada Stuffed Zucchini Boats. DELISH! And guess what? Only 116 calories per boat (half zucchini).
I didn't really get much of a chance to do anything today, so there are not a lot of pics to share.
These are my curry leaves, they smell amazing....was transferring them from the package they came in, to a jar.
Hoping to get a few minutes while hubby is at class, to sit down and read my new mag.
and finally, just to show you how well the lettuce is doing.
I'm pooped, can't wait for bedtime, but since that is not happening anytime soon, I think I'm going to finish my crochet cushion and watch some TV.
Have a restful night everyone :)
