Work hard. Eat goodies.
Sorry I missed you Friday. The day came and went quick and I was so excited to be outside because it's been gorgeous - 70's and sunny like the last week... yippee!
Here's what's been going on in my life...My husband and I have officially started our garden!!! We are trying to grow kale, lettuce, sunflowers, spinach, rosemary, sage, strawberries... Let's just say we bought a lot of seeds and we've almost lost track of it all ;)
On Saturday, we went to the Farmers Market. This is only the second time I've been and it was thrilling. I think I got all of that produce below for no more than ten dollars - woo!
We also bought flowers and lots of kale starter plants. And when I spotted that energy cookie, of course I had to try it. It was delicious, but I kept thinking how a splash of chocolate would have made it perfect!
I had two tofu quinoa burgers this weekend. They just were so tasty, I couldn't resist having another.
Sunday night was that veggie hotdog (yes, more sweet potato fries - I'm hooked) and a killer salad.
And I had strawberries for the first time this season! I wasn't sure if they would be any good, but they were surprisingly sweet and wonderful. We ate the whole container in a day - no judgment :)
Sunday passed in a sunny blur of yard work all day, lots of grilled yums (inside grilling - hoping to get a real grill next weekend!) and some relaxation. I'm not going to lie, I feel as tired from doing yard work as I did from my half marathon last weekend!
Get ready for tomorrow because that's when Marathon training begins!
What's your favorite fruit and vegetable? How was your weekend?
