Morning guys! I’m still riding the toast train – loving the crunchy bread right now! Yesterday’s lunch was BLTs – actually, BLs, since all the tomato got eaten the day before. Bummer! Still yummy though. Plus some raw veg on the side. Raw green peppers are my FAVE – love that crunch and they are so juicy.
And this morning I had another of my new fave creation: toast + cottage cheese + smoked salmon. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it! So good. I was missing the tomato, though – must get more ASAP!
As for last night, we mixed it up from toast and made a variation of my Sheet Pan Asian Salmon! LOVE that recipe – so easy and delicious. The sauce is my fave – we didn’t have fresh ginger or green onions so we left them out and it was just as good. We also used honey instead of maple syrup just to mix it up – also just as good.
We are still making our way through our freezer stash of meat/fish – this was the last of the salmon! If you’re wondering why we have so much frozen protein, it’s because when I was pregnant we’d buy or get a delivery of ingredients for dinner and then on a bunch of nights by the time dinner rolled around I would NOT be feeling whatever we were supposed to make. Sometimes Matt would make the dish anyway and just eat it himself, but other nights we’d end up eating the other ingredients in simple/more pregnancy friendly dishes, and would freeze the protein for later. Nice to finally use it!
I will leave you with your daily dose of cuteness – Riese in her little snowsuit that was a gift from grandma! So cute, right?! I had a dentist appointment yesterday about a mile from the house so Matt, Riese, and Freyja walked me there and then they walked back solo while I had my teeth cleaned. We added a hat and a blanket on her and she seemed quite cozy even though it was cold!
I’ll be back tomorrow to talk more about yummy dinners we’ve been eating lately – stay tuned! As for today, we have more nanny interviews and are checking out a small in-home daycare near us tonight, too. So many options, although it’s hard in the DC area because all the really good nannies and in-home daycares aren’t available for long… makes me feel a lot of pressure to act quickly! Eek.
Have a good one, guys!
p.s. For my friends who like the Winter Shape Up and have joined myself and Gina for that in the past, I wanted to mention that the 2018 Winter Shape Up started on Monday! I wasn’t able to co-host this year because I’ve been so busy with little miss Riese, but I wanted to be sure to give it a shout out for those of you who love it. 🙂 It’s a fun and totally free healthy living challenge to kick off the new year – no dieting or extreme anything, don’t worry! Just a really positive and encouraging community, fun workout videos, and recipe ideas to get you back in the swing of healthy living in a realistic, fun, and sustainable way.
