Well today was officially the last day of my 4 day weekend! 😦 I’m definitely a bit bummed because who wants to go back to work? But I had such an amazing birthday! My best friend of 20 years whisked me away on Saturday for a birthday surprise—turns out we went to see FIDDLER ON THE ROOF! We drove up to Hollywood and had dinner at a great Sushi restaurant and then we walked down Hollywood Blvd to the theater. I’m a HUGE musical theater lover so it really was the most amazing gift—not only was I excited to see it but it turns out TOPAL was starring in it. THE Topal! He’s the man who actually starred in the award winning movie and has played this part for many years, these are his farewell performances and I feel so lucky to have seen it!
Today was a very snacky day for me—I wasn’t really in the mood to have anything too heavy since I’ve been “vacation” eating for the last 4 days. One of my favorite things to eat when I’m not super hungry and I just want a quick and not too heavy something is tuna. I loooove tuna! So today I made a can with:
- ONLY mustard (no mayo)
- Red Onions
- Capers (something new I tried and loved)
I’m sorry, I tried but tuna just never LOOKS super appetizing!
This afternoon The Boo and I went for a long walk at Webb Park in Rancho Bernardo. A great place to go when you want to get out and enjoy some beautiful scenery. I’ll be devoting a whole post to the area so I’ll get back to it very soon–here are some pictures
Oh and we got to see some cute little duckies!
Before we left the house I brought a little snack with me just in case I got hungry while we were out and about and I’m SO glad I did. Flying Vegan makes THE most amazing bars! They’re so moist and delicious, kind of reminded me of banana bread but without the banana taste–I’d have to go as far as to say that I’m addicted and I’m not even Vegan!!
It was the perfect thing to hold me over during our afternoon stroll. Not only is it absolutrly DELICIOUS, the ingredients just can’t get much better and like the website says: “All ingredients are gluten-free, certified Organic and purchased locally. Each 3 oz. bar contains 80% Raw ingredients.”
Definitely check these out at FLYING VEGAN you won’t be disappointed at all!
After Webb Park we decided to hit up the grocery store and get some food for the week. I came across some Cantaloupe and Honeydew that sounded way too good to pass on so I picked some up–they’re a great snack to have during the week to bring to work!
I just cut them in half, slice them up and stick them in tupperware so they’re way easy to much on.
Did the same with the Cantaloupe
Sooo a few weeks ago I bought Lentils without really having a purpose for them. I often do this and end up with a cabinet filled with random ingredients, none of which go together. So today I decided to experiment with the lentils in hopes that I’d create something easy and yummy. I got the idea from something I saw while flipping through a magazine the other day–I don’t know what they used as the filling but I thought hey…why not try it with lentils?!?! They ARE a superfood, they’re filled with cholesterol-lowering fiber, a member of the legume family, and have tons of protein and NO fat!
This is what I did! I sliced some zucchini SUPER thin, sauteed in a pan
Then I rolled the lentils inside with a little spinach and tadaa
Super easy, SUPER random, super good! I’d definitely make them again–I thought they’d add a little excitement to the blog instead of my same old, same old. 🙂
I took a day off from the gym today since I’m pretty sore from trying to run outside the other day–my body didn’t handle the concrete very well. OUCH!
