Still sore when I woke up on Saturday. So sore in fact that attempting my PT exercises proved to be a terrible idea so I settled for some more ice packs (good thing I bought myself some extras) and a relaxing morning.
I decided to make some multigrain english muffin french toast for breakfast. Soaked in 1 egg and 1 egg white with almond milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.
Topped with almond butter and a grilled half banana.
Very delicious, but I can’t wait to refill my Teddie peanut butter supply. I like almond butter, but no where near as much.
I spent the rest of the morning cleaning my kitchen and then promptly messing it up again with cooking projects. (Plus a bit of practicing thrown into the mix.)
I had dinner plans with Emma in the evening but I offered to bring the dinner.
In my preparations I made some of Angela’s lightened tahini dressing and it was so delicious I licked the bowl for part of my lunch (with some red pepper strips for dipping.)
I also snacked on a few ingredients from my salad – carrots and raisins.
Eventually I decided on a pear and melted some brie on top (two individual packs.)
The afternoon was spent at Harvard for their final concert of the semester. I did stick around and talk during the reception, but I stayed far away from the crackers and cheese and cookies. Enough snacking for me and also I think I overdosed on receptions during my tour.
After the concert I drove over to Emma’s dinner in hand (I had packed it all in advance with ice packs.)
On the menu: scallops, sweet potato wedges, and kale salad.
Salad came out great. I mostly used this recipe and made a few tweaks.
I used Tina’s step by step instructions for the sweet potatoes, only this time I didn’t burn them.
Scallops were super easy. I defrosted them, patted them dry with a paper towel, a touch of sea salt, and then cooked them in a pan with a touch of oil. Literally about a minute and a half and done.
Emma and I headed out to a play (we bought flexible season tickets together and I’m so glad! Definitely pushes us to make time for so much good theater!) We killed some time at Starbucks. (I drank a mint tea) and then enjoyed a great play. (The Luck of the Irish – about racial tension and class tension in the 1960s and today.)
All around a good day – now I have to dash off for an early rehearsal.
