Today was…awesome. Sure, I was on an all-day webinar and it was cameras on, participation required, but that’s kind of what makes a webinar meaningful, amirite?
Being home, however, we had a few breaks and I was able to capitalize big time.
Break 1 – ¾ of a mile on the treadmill
Break 2 (lunch) – 1 mile walk outside while talking to a friend and transitioned my laptop to the front porch to enjoy the 70 degree November 3rd weather here in Michigan!
Break 3 (10 minutes) – prepped dinner
I mean, seriously, what a gift – time, weather, being in my jammies. I’m taking it. And yes, I totally went for a walk in my jammies. No shame!
Last week I was still recovering from the crud and while I’m not 100%, I’m feeling a lot better and I’ve been back to lunchtime walks and evening sweat sessions.
Sleeping like a dream.
Wishing dinner would make itself.
I’ve scaled back big time on dinner efforts this week and man, that was a good call. I was on my ever-loving last (dinner) nerve last week. Kids who weren’t hungry and/or hated what I made. No time. Evening commitments. I am so protective of our evenings and so while I love soccer season, I also hate it! 🙂
The dinner game with kids is getting a bit more predictable these days. It’s a simple and yet so challenging. If they’re hungry, they eat. If they snack like its their job after school, they consume air and milk for dinner. I’m a rocket scientist, alright! 😉
I feel super fortunate that my kids are both good with fish and my “vegetarian” has mostly given up on that concept. It ends up that sausage is a favorite food soooo…that might be a conflict with the vegetarian lifestyle. If I combine fish with a whole bunch of flavorful, crushed up chips? HUGE hit. Huge hit with us all, in fact! I’ve always loved salt and vinegar chips and honestly, this is a most enjoyable way to consume them!
Salt and Vinegar Potato Chip Crusted Cod
A mild, lean fish that is perfectly accented with flavorful salt and vinegar chips and a squeeze of lemon juice. Sometimes the best things are...simple!
