I’ll bet you can’t guess what I did all day today…mwahahaha.
I’ll get to that in a second, but first, let’s talk lunch.
I chomped on some carrots & hommus, alongside this fantastic sandwich. Last night while prepping dinner, I roasted up an extra batch of zucchini and yellow squash to have for during the week.
So today, I combined them with a toasted Thomas’ Everything Bagel Thin with melted provolone cheese, and an extra smear of hommus.
It was so good. And doesn’t that little mountain of cheese poking through the middle of the bagel thin just make you giggle?
Ok, well I found it amusing.
So you may notice that my surroundings with lunch are a little different today, and THAT is because I was over at my parents’ house…
Painting! How do ya like those lovely paint scrubs, eh? I know, they’re hot.
For as long as I can remember, my dad has always taken a week off of work right around the beginning of May to get a bunch of work done around the house. Since I’m currently not working, he nicely offered to “hire” me as a worker of his for a few days this week to help out.
So today, my day consisted of about five hours of painting, which has only further led me to one conclusion: I will not be applying to any painter jobs anytime soon.
Mid-afternoon, I stopped to take a break and noticed some goodies sitting on the counter in the kitchen…
Mom had baked! Peanut butter & chocolate chip cookies, to be exact. So I dug right in and helped myself to two.
By around 4:00, my painting was just about done for the day, and as I was wrapping up, I was beyond excited to see that my Mom had come home with coolattas from Dunkin’ Donuts! Talk about a nice treat after putting in a hard day’s work.
My favorite coolatta from DD’s is a French Vanilla Coffee Coolatta w/ Skim Milk.
**FYI: Did you know that by ordering a coolatta with skim milk, you can save yourself almost 200 calories and 23 grams of fat??
This was actually my first coolatta of the season, but to be honest, I don’t really get them all that often. Even by ordering it with skim milk, it’s still loaded with extra sugars, but it is a nice treat to have every now and then.
Would you believe that when I first graduated college and started working, I would stop into a DD’s probably 2-3 out of five days every week and order myself a coolatta, a Boston Cream donut, and a Blueberry Cake donut?
Thank god I got myself out of THAT routine. Yikes!
Tonight is a big night…it’s our first softball game of the season. Wish us luck!
Question for the Day:
Have you ever had any bad fast food habits?
