Because it's Monday...

I don't have to work today since it's the semester break for the school district I work for. Teachers are there but students are not so there's no need for me. (I work one on one with students.)

Andy has to work though. (He teaches high school) Bummer! And I have class from 4pm-10pm tonight so I highly doubt I'll even see Andy after he gets out of school. Sadface.

My weekend was decent. On Saturday I met up with my friend Cassandra for some coffee talk at Starbucks. I had an iced caramel latte for the first time in forever. I miss Starbucks! After our coffee talk, I went to my parent's house and made them lunch. Pasta salad and ham & cheese sandwiches.

I know, I know. Haute cuisine, huh?

002

My brother Daniel (he's 8 years old) helped me make the pasta salad. I chopped 2 zucchinis, 2 tomatos, half a red onion and some black olives. Daniel added one cup fat-free feta and 1/2 cup low fat greek vinegarette. Then we added some white and whole wheat noodles. (we had equal amounts of both.)

Weirdly enough, Daniel TRIED my pasta salad. Which is a small miracle in itself. The kid lives off of peanut butter, popcorn, ham sandwiches (ham and bread only), pizza and chicken nuggets. I think he was willing to branch out and try the pasta salad because he helped make it. Whatever the reason, I love him for it!

Saturday night, I made the biggest salad in the world at Souplantation. It had romaine, spinach, zucchini, butternut squash, cheese(!!), croutons, chickpeas galore and tomatoes. I was a happy lady.

I didn't take any food pictures Sunday. I am a bad food blogger sometimes.

004

Now I'm drinking coffee and wishing we had some fruit in the house. I should go shopping for bananas and blueberries.

I have been distracting myself from writing and working by planning a road trip to Vancouver. It would be so much fun! We could stop in Carmel or Big Sur, then San Francisco, Eureka (to visit Andy's grandparents, Bend, Oregon (to visit my aunts and cousins) Portland, Oregon (to visit my friend Sarah) and then Seattle, Washington and finally Vancouver. We'd do some stops on the way there and some stops on the way back. Teachers have summers off so why not right?

I should start saving money.

I should also do homework. Why did I go back to school again?

P.S. Week Two, Day One of Couch to 5k was awesome. I feel good! :)

They say that's one way to get kids to try new foods is to have them help make it - they feel more in the process instead of just being handed a bowl of something.

My daughter surived eating out by eating chicken fingers EVERY time we went out - probably a good 10 years??

Glad the training went well - I ran at lunch today too, but my blood sugar dropped to 50 and I had to get off to eat :(

It's nice that your brother ate the pasta salad! Always great for kids to eat different foods :). I do often!

I don't think I could have piled up that many veggies at Souplantation onto one plate. I always grab too little salad, and then I can't go back to the salad bar (?) as so many people are still waiting in line to pay for their meals. Speaking about that, I still need to write about Souplantation...in November! :)

Glad you're liking the new workout plan!

Nick works late all week this week, so I know what you mean when you say, "sadface". I have one too!

I love a good Big Salad. Sometimes it's the simplest and most perfect meal.

I've been obsessed with zucchini lately- this sounds like a great recipe for me to try!

I totally make a monstrous salad at salad bars- it's kind of an illness I have!

Hope you enjoyed your day off!

Mmm...blueberries sound good and so does that roadtrip! I'm going to be a bit travel deprived this year so I'll be watching closely to see if you take it. That would be lots of fun!
