So last night, Jay and I did a little weeding in the garden. Actually, Jay did more than I did, but whatever…I got my hands dirty. But those weeds? Ughh…it has gotten bad, my friends. BAD. My goodness those thing can grow at a wicked pace, can’t they?
While we were out at the garden, I happened to be scoping out my tomato plants, and lo and behold…
I had tomatoes! Most where cherry tomatoes, but that bigger one is from my “early girl” plant. I have soooo many other green ones out there right now and it just makes my heart happy.
Needless to say, when there’s fresh tomatoes in the house, they’ve got to be put to good use…so a salad for lunch it was!
Along with my garden tomatoes was also some garden basil, as well as romaine, cucumbers, shredded carrots, avocado, and deli turkey with some Italian dressing. This was one gooooood salad.
For a little sweetness, I also threw a banana SOYJOY bar + a white peach into the mix.
I was going to have a slice of zucchini oatmeal bread, but I ended up caving in to that mid-morning…and I’ll most likely have another one this afternoon.
In other news…I am loving Fifty Shades of Grey. I’m up to about chapter 23 (I think?) and am finding myself totally hooked on the book. I just finished up with one of their email conversations, and for those of you who have read it, did you pay attention to the email subject lines? They are funny.
I will say that there are parts of the book that I don’t love (I always feel sort of awkward for her when she’s in such an, errr, submissive state?), but knowing (well, hearing) that the story gets better in the next two books only makes me want to read more.
