Why I Like Working On Wednesdays

by Courtney on November 9, 2011

Well, let me tell ya; this afternoon’s lunchtime soup was onnnnn point.

To be perfectly honest with you, I’m actually enjoying this Spinach Lentil Soup a whole lot more than I ever thought I would have. I mean, I guess lentils have never really called out to me all that much, but they are seriously rock stars in that soup. If it wasn’t for the yummy dinner I packed with me for tonight, I probably would have eaten another cup of soup.

When Jay and I had our yummy chicken dinner on Monday night, we he cooked up a little extra to have for during the week. This morning, I incorporated half of a breast (because, again, it was pretty large…and I’m jealous) on top of a nice veggie salad, including romaine, cukes, tomato, red bell pepper, carrots, and goat cheese.

I also ended up finishing off the rest of a bag of Kashi crackers, a fun-size bag of Skittles, some cinnamon roasted almonds (YUM!) and an amazing, much-needed Caramel-Mocha iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts, courtesy of mi madre.

Have I mentioned before how much working with my mom makes Wednesdays that much better? Well, in case I didn’t…it does. A lot.

I was really needing some mom-time tonight, and she definitely delivered on more than just the coffee front. Thanks again, Mom!

I’m saving the pear you see above for when I get home, because I’m totally envisioning it to look a little something like this…

Paired with a vanilla Chobani and a crap-load of granola. Ohhhh yes.

Now let’s hope I get home soon so I can enjoy my snack and watch my favorite Wednesday night shows! ;)

Question for the Evening:

Why do you like Wednesdays?

I love soups! They are my favorite go to meal. I ended up making MamaPea’s Creamy Broccoli soup tonight and it was delicious!
However, I’m not a fan of Wednesday today. I was stuck at my college campus for 3 hours because we were on lockdown. So fun.

I like Wednesdays because I start work later in the day than usual! When I was in high school, Wednesdays were my favorite because I got out of school 45 minutes early. It was always such a midweek treat!

I like Wednesdays because they are the start of the downhill slide for the week. :) As an aside, every time you mention your mom and/or family it makes really happy for you, mine are so far away! I am so glad you get to spend Wednesdays with your mom. :)

I like Wednesdays because it means I am halfway through the work week. It feels good to know that I have only 2 full days left of work :)

I love Wednesdays because it means we’re almost through the week! And It means the next day I don’t have to get up at the buttcrack of dawn to work out.
