Hi friends! I realize that I’ve been a terrible blogger lately, I guess it’s because I really have nothing going on to update you on. Being back home is boring. I really haven’t been doing much of anything lately, which was relaxing for a while but now I’m getting antsy. Good thing I have a lot of fun trips coming up in the next couple months including: a cruise with Aliza, my Grandma’s birthday party in Ohio, a long trip to New York, and a weekend in Chicago!
I also just signed up for my first 10K Race! I’m running the Father’s Day Race for Prostate Cancer Education, Awareness and Early Detection. I’m really excited about this since it’s my first real race ever.
Besides running, I’ve also gotten back into taking spinning classes, I’ve been doing some cooking, cleaning, and organizing, and consequently having a bit of an identity crisis. I have no idea how old I am anymore! My friends at school always joked that I was like a grandma because I would go to bed early and wake up at the crack of dawn. Now, I really don’t know how old I am. Some days I feel like a middle-aged housewife: get up, make coffee and breakfast, clean the house, run errands, exercise, get my nails done and chat with the gals at the salon, make dinner, clean up, and go to bed. Then, other days I spend with my grandpa (who is doing a million times better! yay!) at the nursing home, chatting it up with the other 80-something-yr olds, come home to a 5:00 dinner and fall asleep reading a book on the couch. Then, last night I went out with my friends who I’ve been close to since elementary school, stayed up playing video games all night and felt like I was back in high school. It’s confusing!
Anyway, I really have been slacking on the photos but here are a few highlights. I haven’t been using recipes for anything (which is a really big step for me to finally feel really comfortable in the kitchen) but everything has been coming out deliciously!
Sarah’s infamous crack wrap:
Holy hell! This is the best thing I have ever tasted. WHY did it take me so long to try it? I think I’ve had this for lunch every single day for the past week and it just keeps getting better and better.
Maple/Brown Sugar glazed salmon with asparagus:
Sweet and sour tofu with pineapple and brown rice:
Grilled chicken with sauteed veggies and Israeli couscous:
Well that’s all I’ve got for now, until next time!
