Have you ever just had a day where everything just seems to line up just right and make it into one FANTASTIC day?!
~ spending 30 minutes on the treadmill to start your day off right & get it over with
~ wearing a new shirt that you got for $9 at Old Navy that makes you feel good!
~ Lunch with friends that is basically FREE
~ Getting flowers when you walk in the door complete with their “homemade” vase
~ Walking to the Farmer’s Market with The Husband and his mom ~ carrying back all the loot including a 22 lb watermelon
~ Fun shopping with The Husband who embraces my LOVE for rainbows
~ waking up, watering the garden and realizing that ~ MR. STRIPEY finally has a couple of tomatoes?!
I can’t wait to see how HUGE these 18 oz STRIPED tomatoes get!
Our peppers are multiplying & getting HUGE too!
But, really, it was seeing my “baby” jalapeno that brought tears to my eyes LOL….it’s the little green thing in the middle.
We officially have 4 big cucumbers like this on our plant! I think I want to “try” to make pickles with them.
I LOVE having a mini farmer’s market in our back yard!
I left for work feeling SO PROUD…like maybe we can actually call ourselves GARDENER’s now
It really makes me want to bust out my latest cookbook I got at an Antique Store for only $12 ! Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone! I LOVE that Deborah Madison gives you a ton of tips on how to actually cook, but, that she has cooked/eats the recipes in her book!
Breakfast was an “egg mcmuffin” with just egg on an Oro Wheat Double Fiber English Muffin (4 pts).
The sweetest watermelon & pineapple of the season from the farmer’s market! (1 pt)
PUMPKIN BOLANI BREAD from the Farmer’s Market! You get 1/4 of a package for only 1 point. I added a TJ’s Lite String Cheese for a little protein (1 pt)
Lunchtime with friends at Mammarella’s!
The BEST tomato basil soup with crushed red pepper flakes & parmesan – not cream based – LOVE that! (1 pt)
I can be bribed to go here anytime for a FREE CITRUS BEET SALAD! I actually LOVE this salad so much, I tried to recreate it in this post
Everything in this dish just works – the salty, nutty pistachios, the ensalada ricotta, sweet beets, cool citrus, grilled chicken….(6 pts)
I have been flavoring my water lately with Crystal Light Pure Fitness ~ it is sweetened naturally and it’s delicious when you want something other than water.
The hand picked flowers I came home to in The Husband’s homemade vase ~ LOVE
Dinner was super fast and simple ~ TWO things that I require in My Taco Salads ~ GUACAMOLE & CRUNCHY CHIPS!
10 points of taco salad deliciousness!
I really tried to convince him he “needed” to have these shorts for our trip…..
I even offered to buy the matching shirt, but, he just wasn’t having it LOL
And the BEST part about today ~ tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!!
