I have a confession to make: I am completely OBSESSED with Wheel of Fortune! I’ve been sitting here for the last 10 minutes trying to decide how to start tonight’s post, but the “wheel” kept dragging my attention back. Seriously, this show ROCKS…I NEED to BE on it! Actually, about 5 years ago, I did try out to be on the show, but never got a call back…BOOO. Jay hates watching it with me because I alllllways kick his butt! (sorry babe!)
Anyways, confessional over…on to the rest of today!
Before hitting up the gym, I snacked on my Livin Spoonful crackers leftover from lunch, along with this HUGH JASS Macintosh apple that I completely forgot I had packed this morning. Macs aren’t usually my favorite (love me my golden delicious), but they were on sale for .99/lb, so I really couldn’t pass it up!
At the gym, I started off with 25 minutes on the elliptical, covering exactly 2.5 miles, while catching up on my magazine stash. I debated on running instead, but I wanted to read, and that just doesn’t happen when I run! BodyPump today was fantastic, and definitely didn’t feel like as much as a struggle as last week. I can’t wait for the new track to come out at the end of the month!
The hubby helped with prepping some of tonight’s dinner, which was quick and easy by the time I got home! I was in charge of sandwiches, so I quickly through together Jay’s deli chicken sandwich, and then got to work on my tuna salad!
I put some cukes, carrots, onions, pickles, and dried cranberries into a can of tuna, mixed with about 2 tsp. light mayo, S&P, and my new fave ingredient for tuna…cinnamon!! I’m tellin’ ya, don’t knock it ’til ya try it! I put about 1/2 of the mixture onto a toasted whole wheat Arnold’s Sandwich Thin with lettuce and tomato.
Jay, on the other hand, did an outstanding job on baking up some sweet potato fries! He tells me it was “all in the seasoning”, which apparently consisted of S&P, garlic powder, and seasoned salt. Whatever it was, it was heavenly!
On the side, I also cooked up the sugar snap PEAS that we picked up at the Farmers Market…unfortunately, I let them cook a little longer than I like, so they ended up pretty mushy. But, despite the mush, they were still quite tasty!!
As Jay and I were sitting, chatting about our day, we were startled to see we had a surprise visitor come and join us at the table…
We couldn’t decide if he was looking for the tuna fish he most likely smelled, or if he was checking out the delicious dessert on the cover of this fabulous-looking local cookbook I picked up the other day?
I don’t know…YOU decide!
My evening will be spent perusing through this book to see what kind of delicious eats I can find to make!! I don’t know if I want to find something to cook, or something to bake?
Do you prefer cooking or baking?
99% of the time I’ll choose baking over cooking!
Are you even surprised?
