Hello! Happy Sunday to ya! I don’t know about where you are but it is by far the most gorgeous day we’ve had in a looooooooong time! Right now it’s 62 and sunny! I’ve been stuck inside revising my paper and doing laundry. Oh well. I’m just glad to see winter come to an end. I know we’ll have plenty of more beautiful days like this to come!
Yesterday would have been a better day to stay in and work on my paper, very gloomy an yucky! But I spent some time with my out of town relatives and did my taxes with the hubby and my dad.
I started out the day with a great 5.5mile run. Still loving the Garmin!
It really kept me motivated and even surprised me when my pace dropped below 9 miles/hour. I have yet to download the software on to my computer..must do that soon!
Before my run I had a little snack to fuel myself up
Spelt bread, toasted, with almond butter, a cup of coffee with almond milk in it. The vanilla flavor made it seem like a real treat!
Towards the end of my run it started to drizzle so by the time I was done I was pretty chilled. I warmed up with a hot shower and breakfast #2
- 1/2c old fashion oats
- 1/2c almond milk
- 1/2 c water
- 1/2 a jonagold apple
I topped it with
- 1 TBSP of shredded coconut
- 1 TBSP of pecans
- And obviously some cool whip.
Twas like eating apple crisp for breakfast! I finished the other half of the apple off with some almond butter. All I needed was some added egg white for protein but we were all out!
I spent the afternoon hanging out with these two adorable guys
Those are my cousins little guys and my parent’s dog Mosey!
After the relatives left Brian and I got down to business doing our taxes with my dad. About half way through I got pretty hungry and whipped up an appetizer…more guacamole!
You put the pits back in the guac to keep it from turning brown. I guess that only comes into play when you have leftovers and need to refrigerate it, we pretty much devoured it!
After the taxes were done we cooked fish tacos for my parents. I won’t give away the secret fish recipe but I will share with you the special coleslaw we put inside the tacos
- 2 TBSP of sour cream
- 2 TBSP of Lime juice
- 1/4C of Orange Juice
- salt, pepper, and cumin to taste.
Whisk all that together in a large bowl then add
- 1/4 head of red cabbage
- 1/2 C corn kernels (used frozen, thawed)
- 1 jalapeno chopped
Toss with the liquid and let stand for 10 minutes tossing occasionally. Then you just add that to your fish taco. So delicious!
A word to the wise. When chopping up a jalapeno wear plastic gloves. I didn’t and later rubbed my eye and thought I was going to DIE! The burning was so intense! I rinsed it with water and milk and eventually it felt better. Here’s us being goofy about the whole thing! What a dumb mistake!
Well, I’m off to my favorite Sunday yoga class! Hope you’re having a great weekend!
