A Sleepy Day

Today was the first day in quite some time where I did no physical activity (which means I skipped The Shred, sorry guys)… didn’t even take the dog on a walk! For some reason, I was sooo tired and after work ate dinner and then went to bed (after doing some crosswords, yes I am a dork).

But that’s okay, sometimes we just need to listen to our bodies and rest and relax and do nothing.

I did try a new Kashi product – Sicilian Veggie Pizza which is a cheese-less pizza, made with a tomato-bean sauce. It was pretty good! Not as good as my old stand-by (Amy’s No Cheese Veggie), but nice for a change. I picked up some trees (broccoli) at the farm on my way home from work, tossed with evoo, s&p and threw them in the oven while the pizza cooked. I cut them up small so it wouldn’t take long to get nice and roasted.

Then I microwaved some Greek Giant Beans that I picked up on my last World Market food trip. These beans are so meaty and are in this awesome tomato sauce (you can see their size in comparison to my pizza and broccoli!). They are a little greasy/oily from the sauce, but something about them is so addicting and comforting.

After dinner I just crashed, it was a LONG day at work that was mentally exhausting. Hopefully tomorrow will be better! Oh, my Grandpa is out of the hospital and recovering fine, minus a few toes.

Hope everything is well in your corners of the world!

Rounds Are Better Than Wedges

Maybe I am the last person to learn this, but cutting sweet potato rounds are MUCH easier than cutting wedges! Seems like everyone already knows this, but I’m posting just in case there are any wedge cutters like me lurking… try it round next time!

There is this really great spread at World Market called “Red Pepper & Cheese Spread – Flavors of Greece”. The jar says it is great on bread, pita and crackers. I love in on sandwiches and tossed with hot sweet taters! Just a few spoonfuls and stir it up and it adds a nice flavor.

Ingredients are pretty decent: red peppers, water, feta cheese, myzithra cheese, sauteed onions, evoo, red wine vinegar, tomato paste, glucose, cornstarch, sea salt, paprika, herbs & spices.

Sure they could do without the glucose, and use arrowroot flour instead of the cornstarch, but I was happy to see no MSGs or added colors or weird things. We also had it smeared on a turkey & mozzarella multi-grain pressed sammy. Yummy.

Have you ever tried this beer?

Quilmes

Quilmes

It is Quilmes from Argentina, and i tried it when we went out for tapas. It would taste much better drinking it IN Argentina. 😉

Okay, it is WAY too nice outside to be sitting inside blogging, so see you tomorrow!
