Just a Quickie!

Well, it's Monday, and my weekend is over. Hope everyone out there had a good one! Our company is still here, but will be leaving tomorrow morning, pretty early. This means that we'll have to say goodbye to them tonight before leaving for work, as we'll be asleep when they leave. Sad, but it was nice to see B's grandparents, and to have some visiting time.
Last night for dinner I made fruit salad. I know, I know, yes another fruit salad! It's just so refreshing and flavorful! I love summer! This version had watermelon, cantaloupe, oranges, bananas, pineapple, white and yellow peach, strawberries and some lemon balm. I ended up sprinkling my serving with lime juice too. I particularly loved the last version with coconut and lime juice, but it was voted down this time.

After dinner B and I watched Greenberg, the new Ben Stiller movie. Odd, a bit slow, but different enough to be entertaining. Then we watched the original version of the Karate Kid. Ummm, yeah. Hilariously bad! I think I remember some of those clothing styles though...head bands were hot! But really, that kid looked like he was about 10, and when he started kissing that chick it was like, eeew! Child pornography! OK, not quite, but it sorta grossed me out! Other than that is was a fun one. Wax on, wax off! Well, fine you got me, I actually liked it!

After the movies we took a short night walk. The stars have been so brilliant lately!

Breakfast today was so filling, I had oatmeal made with vanilla rice milk, and then stirred a spoonful of almond butter into it. So good, but it made me SO full! Because of this I ended up with a smoothie for lunch again. I used up some of last nights fruit salad, some vanilla rice milk, a handful of frozen blueberries and raspberries, and about half a cup of spinach, plus a bit of hemp protein powder. Very yummy!

Dinner tonight is BBQ turkey, scalloped potatoes, and veggie saute. The veggies were my assignment, so I cut up broccoli, eggplant, zucchini, and scapes. I added olive oil, garlic powder, lemon pepper and a splash of balsamic vinagrette. I also added some of that sesame/salt/sea vegetable sprinkle stuff I got at the market last week. Hope it's good!

Well, it's time to eat! Hopefully I'll get a couple of shots of dinner, but the camera isn't always welcome. I'll do what I can. After food it's work time, not sure what i'm baking tonight. Guess I'll find out!
