Almost. That was a great concern when I hit the trail at the forest preserve after work last night. How is it possible that the trail is a loop and I was against the wind the majority of the time? Seriously… I feel that physics would debate this. But it happened.
And I swallowed a bug. No need to eat meat for the rest of the week… my protein needs have been met.
The loop is 2.8 miles. And despite the forces of nature, I trudged through it all. So when Mon texted me for a Tuesday Suckday drink, I happily obliged. I needed to finish off and get rid of that bottle of wine in the refrigerator anyways…
Before the wine, I was able to cook this mean dish up:Spinach and feta wrap with zuchinni. I picked up some wraps yesterday and am sure I’ll be making the most of them this week! Which means I will be using them pretty much every other meal until they’re gone so they don’t go bad. Anyways, the spinach wrap was A-mazing. I sauteed the spinach beforehand- I sort of prefer it that way over raw when I’m given the choice.
Oh and I’m glad I’m not the only crazy who frequents the grocery store like it’s my hangout… Being as how I cook for just myself most of the time, I find it necessary to do so if I want to eat fresh. Because I’ve tried stocking up and only going once a week. This ends up with me going nuts trying to cook as much as I can the first few days and then everything else going bad before I can get to it. So lately I’ve found that buying one or two fresh things at a time and incorporating them into a few meals with other things works best. Any other tips for the single lady in the kitchen?
Ok guys, we’re halfway through. So let’s put on a happy face, shall we? Just so you know, this isn’t my happy face. This is my “I just watched the news and traffic is a standstill in every which direction”. Ugh.
