Well, since chatting with you all last, the rest of today can be summed up rather easily. Let’s see…
First, I headed out and completed some “intervals” at the pool; and by “intervals,” I mean:
-Read one chapter in my book while sweating my face off…
-Spend 10 minutes lounging on my pretty pink float to cool off.
These intervals were completed for about 3 chapters before finally just deciding to stay on the float. It was just too darn hot out there to not be in the water (which is 86 degrees as it is- bath water!)
Also, in the midst of my intervals, my new favorite smoothie was consumed. But since it was totally way too much effort at this point to go looking for my camera, I’ll give you all another recycled photo.
Once pool time was over, I came back inside, showered, and ended up unexpectedly napping on the couch for a good 45 minutes. I don’t know whether it was a combo of the heat + water, or maybe I’m just still feeling super relaxed from this morning. Either way, my nap was lovely.
I awoke, however, to a grumbling belly and a hubby with a grumbling belly, and needed to figure out something quick to make for dinner.
Noooooo problemo. Especially when I have a box of Annie’s Shells & White Cheddar lying around!
I went ahead and created another version of the 20 Minute Mac & Cheese…Your My Way. Today’s batch included:
- 1 can chunk chicken
- 3/4 can diced tomatoes, drained
- 1 diced zucchini (which I sautéed up with a little EVOO, salt, & pepper while the shells were cooking)
- Fresh basil
- Salt & pepper
I just love how easy it is to take a simple box of mac & cheese and “doctor it up” to our liking. Plus, by adding all the extra “bulk,” we’ve got plenty of leftovers, too.
In keeping with my lazy theme for the day, dinner was enjoyed on the couch. Some days just call for an easy peasy, cozy dinner on the couch.
Now, I’m currently trying to convince hubby to end our day on the right note with a little 16 Handles. I mayyyyy be making progress…but don’t worry, I’ll let you know if I do.
Questions for the Evening:
Would you rather be IN the pool -OR- lounging NEXT to the pool?
What are your best strategies when trying to convince your S.O. (or anyone) to go get fro yo with you?
