Since getting married (I know, only what, 7 weeks ago?!) I haven’t been doing as much intense, high cardio exercising and I haven’t been nearly as hungry. I’ve been really low key with it all. Doing some nice, long walks pushing the stroller while nannying, some pushups, an occasional run. I am now trying to think about what a healthy exercise routine might look like for me. Also, I read this article on Heather’s blog about refueling, which led me to read the TIME article she linked. Interesting thoughts, huh?
In other news, I had a great old friend over for lunch-I should’ve taken a picture. I made BBQ Chicken pizza on whole wheat crust. She brought a Caprese salad (with tomatoes and basil from her M&D’s garden!) and I made a green salad. It was so good catching up with her.
Then another amazing and beautiful friend, Kim, came over and we made Tuna Cakes, or as she calls them “Tuna Spank Cakes.” This girl is hilarious. What a blast to cook with someone else. She brought half the ingredients, I had half in the house, and then we went halvsies with the tuna cakes and she brought din din home for her and her hubby. I’ve been so spoiled to have all these fun friends to hang out with.
After she left I finished making dinner for Joe and I. Easy! Leftover Caprese Salad with some added balsamic and green beans from M&D’s garden. Green beans always seem kind of tricky for me to cook right because they are either too crunchy or waxy or soggy. These, however, were perfect. I just boiled them for like 5 minutes, drained them, put some cold water over them for a little bit, and added salt and pepper.
I gave Joe a hunk of this bread he loves. I also gave him one of my tuna cakes during dinner because they are so filling and yummy! I’ll post the recipe sometime and how I made the pizza.
This is what I read this morning…”Count yourself lucky, how happy you must be-you get a fresh start, your slate’s wiped clean.” Psalm 32:1. I totally take that for granted. I keep my hang ups to myself, I get anxious, I forget to come to Him and ask Him to make me clean.
One final note…Joe just came out showing me some more pipes he has saudered together for our laundry room. “Want to put this on your blog?” he asked. I totally don’t deserve this handyman husband of mine.
