Hey guys! Totally loved hearing all of your feedback on yesterday’s post, and thanks so much for weighing in. It was cool hearing how some of you have made some big career moves, too, so major props to all of you!
I’ve had some of you ask what it is that I do now, but really, there isn’t a whole lot to share (and I prefer to keep some things “off the blog,” if you will). I work for a software company, and my position has me as an integral role between some of our customers and our in-house developers.
Is it a job that’s changing lives? No, not really. Does it make me feel like I’m making a difference? Not most of the time. But what does make a difference? The fact that I totally love the people that I work with, I have an amazing boss, and I have the flexibility that is absolutely my top priority right now for me and our family. Should I still be at the same company a few years down the road, then maybe I’ll pursue some other avenues within the company. But for now, I’m doing what works best for our family, and it’s really great.
SO…all of that said…let’s switch gears a bit with a little WIAW action! I decided last minute that I was going to partake in Jenn’s party, so some of my photos are recycled, but you’ll get the idea.
It had been a while since I had the peach almond flavor, and it is soooo good.
Banana + peanut butter, which was actually eaten closer to noon because I was pretty busy all morning.
I ate that in about 2 minutes or less so I could race out the door for an appointment, and by the time I got back, I was more than ready to dive into lunch.
A salad, no surprise there…BUT, with a few new/different toppings.
This week, I decided to add some diced strawberries, roasted brussels sprouts, and grilled chicken, and they have been totally delicious the past two days.
About an hour after lunch, I still wanted something more, so I broke into the rest of the snacks that I grabbed from home and snacked on an orange, then some belVita breakfast biscuits.
I first blogged about those breakfast biscuits almost a year ago, and they’ve continued to be a favorite of mine ever since. SO good!
While I was preparing last night’s dinner, I’m pretty sure I snacked on a few bites of Lucas’s pasta and grabbed a Dove milk chocolate caramel, but they went undocumented. I also poured myself a glass of chardonnay while cooking because, well, cooking + wine are always a wonderful combo.
Oh, it was a good one! Seared flank steak with oven roasted red potatoes and some zoodles!
Yes, I finally got the chance to use my new spiralizer to make some zucchini noodles, and I was totally shocked at just how easy the thing was to use. Once I had my “zoodles,” I tossed them in a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a sauté pan. I let them heat through a bit, then finished them off with some parmesan cheese.
Those things totally exceeded my expectations, and now I’m feeling like I want to spiralize all. the. things.
I haven’t had anything yet, since my goal was to get my post typed up before 8pm (I’ve got 10 minutes to spare), but I’d be willing to bet money on the fact that I’m likely going to have this. It’s sort of been my thing recently…ya know, if I’m not eating ice cream or cookies, and all of that fun stuff…
So how ‘bout you guys? What was the best thing you ate yesterday?
