Happy Friday! It’s going to be in the 70’s today and I couldn’t be happier! Whats even better is that I”m going to Rehoboth Beach this weekend for Beach Bash field hockey tournament with all my Salisbury field hockey girls and its going to be in the 80’s the whole weekend. Lets cross my fingers for a littel bit of a tan! πŸ™‚

Yesterday for lunch I went home and made a side salad with cranberries, mushrooms, and my new dressing πŸ™‚ Then as my meal I toasted up a TJs naan bread and sliced that in half. I made Megan’s fav sandwich with tempeh bacon, hummus, bbq sauce, avocado, and some lettuce. The naan bread made the sandwich soooo good, and I think i like it this way better than in a wrap.

After work I went back to Columbia to pick up my fh stick and shinguards and was able to go out to dinner with my mom. We went to Hickory Ridge Grill which is a local restaurant that has a Greek flair. This is one of my favorite local places to eat and everything i’ve ever gotten there is so fresh and tasty. I decided on the chicken souvlaki platter. I made some key decisions that i’m happy about. It usually comes with fries, and these are the best shoestring fries everrrr. I gobble them all up. I instead opted for the vegetable of the day which was carrots and broccoli. I also asked for no feta (cry) on the platter or the side greek salad that came with it. The meal was just as delicious as it would have before my modifications and I left not overstuffed at all. I had all of the veggies, the salad, and half of the chicken. I brought the other half home with me so that I can use it in another meal. There taziki sauce they make there is amazing. They use real greek yogurt and tonss of garlic. Lets just say I could have killed a vampire with my garlicy breath after I left πŸ˜‰


This morning I ate the other half of my steel cut oats. How easy was this??? I just threw a little bit of water in there and microwaved it until it was perfectly heated through. Then I added some hulled hemp seed, a little agave, and a packet of Barney Butter and it was ready! All done at work so that I could wake up later. I will definitely be using this method and making leftover oats to use throughout the week.

    Hey Lady! I’ve been MIA all week, but have still been reading! I’m glad you’re having a wonderful week – loved your 8 things. I can NOT believe Ron is still on TBL. He is terrible and is setting a really bad example for his sons – what a little con artist! Geeze! haha ok, rant over. πŸ™‚

    Have a great weekend!!!
