Happy Monday everyone!
I know what you are thinking… “Alexis, it’s Monday, it’s your first day back at work, WHY ARE YOU HAPPY?” Well let me tell you… ehh I guess I am not really happy about the whole having to put real pants on… I did in fact ask Brian if he thought I would get in trouble if I just put a clean pair fo sweats on. He laughed at me and then told me I had to get dressed.
Well I am in a pretty good mood, despite the being a grown up with real clothes on thing. Brian and I woke up at 4:45am took the pup for a nice run then came home and boxed together. This was followed by a shower, a hot a breakfast cooked and an episode of The Office watched. I guess you could call me a morning person.
After all that fun I headed off to work with a positive attitude (something I have been missing the past few months) which was only made even more positive with the awesome playlists satellite radio had going on this morning.
Yesterday however was a completely different story. As always I was food prepping and trying together everything situated for my week.
Side note* I actually got ahead of schedule Saturday because it rained nearly all day, which also included multiple tornado warning by our house, and there is only so much TV I can watch in a day. So I decided to get up and start cooking.* We decided it was going to be pizza night in our house with all the fresh ingredients I picked up from the farm that morning. It has fresh oil and garlic as a base (no sauce), Fresh organic tomatoes, spinach, sautéed onions, sausage and goat cheese. IT WAS SOOOOOOOO GOOD. Brian even requested a second pizza. They were not big so I politely obliged.
Here is where the day starts to make a turn for the worst.
Picture this: Beet hummus is completed, processor washed out and ingredients to make cashew date bars are on deck. I process the dates, followed by the cashews, mixed in a few dark chocolate chips and shaped into bars. At this point I am super stocked because these are by far the best version I have made of these and are actually sticking together. I cut them into bite size pieces and then arranged them on a plate so I could take photos and post recipe on the blog. I head to the sun room, camera in hand and really wanting to eat a piece but afraid it will make the plate look unbalanced. Just as I set down the plate Brian calls me outside because he wants to show me something. Well let me tell you, apparently I rolled the hose up incorrectly and he was showing me the proper way to roll the hose up. Anyone else’s significantly other do annoying stuff like this or is it just me? Or am I the annoying one since I cannot properly roll a hose? Anyway, back to my story… At the moment the hose is completely rolled back up PROPERLY I realize my mistake, I run inside to find this…
Not actual moment
Not actual plate
If you haven’t guessed what happened yet… SHE ATE THE ENTIRE PLATE! She ate the whole plate before a single picture was taken or a single bite was allowed. I have no idea how they tasted and will never know because I used the last of my dates and cashews. If you have purchased cashews latelty you know this was not a cheap little snack I was making. This also left me without my afternoon snack for the entire week. Needless to saw she got punished and I wanted to cry (which may or may not have actually happened haha)
So there you have it… My Sunday then consisted of taking a shower in which I dropped my new razor and breaking it. Oh ya did I mention it was also my last razor I had. Needless to say after going to visit Brian’s little brother at the hospital I was not in the mood to cook, so Chipotle it was.
Anyways, Today is a better day and I am determined to have a good week. Although today is my longest day of the week (7am-6pm) of work I will suck it up and relax once I am home.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
Ciao and EMPTY PLATE!
