Forget the medallions of gold or platinum — I’d rather have a medallion of goat cheese!  I am pleased to announce that I did not forget the cheese on today’s salad.  Thank goodness for that, or we would have had anarchy on our hands! (Slight exaggeration.  Maybe).  Before this, for a morning snack, I had the rest of my Pro Bar.

This salad contains:

  • 1 large handful of baby spinach
  • A few “trees” of broccoli
  • 2 mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 3 dried apricots, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon of pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of walnuts
  • Topped with Mediterranean dressing

Labeled with my name for the staff room fridge.  Trespassers will be prosecuted!

The key is to incorporate a small amount of goat cheese into every bite.  Tricky, but not impossible.

For dessert, I cracked open a new dark chocolate bar.

Sublime?  I can support that.

I always check the Nutrition Facts to figure out how much about 100 calories-worth of dark chocolate is.  In this case, it was four squares.

A handful of heaven if you ask me!  I liked it a lot, and was surprised it was so tasty for being 80% cocoa  Do I dare try 90% next time?

Word from headquarters is that we are going to Spring Rolls for supper tonight.  I wanted something cheap (I was thinking Subway!) but Husband wants more of a sit-down meal.  Spring Rolls is not the very best Thai food ever, but it suffices.  What to have, what to have?  I am now going to spend my intermittent breaks from work analyzing the menu.

    Mmmmmm chocolate. I’m not the hugest fan of Spring Rolls, but last time I went, I had the veggie pad thai with tofu and it was pretty good 🙂

      I heard they make their pad thai with ketchup! I am thinking green curry. Or red? I am happy this is my biggest decision today 🙂

    I think that might be one of the prettiest chocolate bars ever!

    I actually like Spring Rolls! LOL And there’s a possibility I may be going there tonight as well! Ha! The boy and I are going on a date for dinner and the movies but the restaurant will depend on the time of whatever movie we end up seeing.

    Oh goat cheese, I do love thee SO MUCH!!!!!!!! It’s an unhealthy obsession…

      Too funny! Well, in Spring Rolls’ defense, I do love their ginger tea, and the curry I’ve had has been very good. Can’t beat the price, either!

      Goat cheese is probably at the top of my “cheese list”. I can’t get enough!

Eating well and living frugally does not always come easy, but Lord help me, I am trying! This blog will detail my endeavor to live the best life possible. This will include pictures of my cats, odes to almond butter, and the general miscellany that makes up my life. Enjoy!
