Surprise, surprise

It’s raining today, or at least that’s what I’ve been told.  I don’t have a window, so I rely on reports from coworkers.  Sometimes, I actually go to instead of going to look out the window in order to gauge the weather.  Talk about lazy!  I have to bring some documents to our “president’s” office to be signed, so I am going to be forced to go out!  It’s a tough life.

For a snack today, I had a simple organic apple.  It was ok.  A bit mealy, which is always disappointing.

And for lunch, you guessed it.  Another salad!  Surprise, surprise.

I was so hungry to eat this that I began to before remembering to take a picture!  It contains:

  • 1 large handful of baby spinach
  • 1/2 tomato, sliced
  • 6 slices of cucumber
  • 3 mushrooms
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • Diced red pepper
  • 1/3rd cup of black beans
  • About 8 unroasted almonds
  • 1 medallion of goat
  • Topped with Mediterranean dressing

My boss came by while I was eating it and said it looked really good.  I am often complimented on my salads at work.  In fact, I am complimented by the look of these salads more than I’m complimented on anything else!  I’m not sure what to make of that 😉

Ok, I’m about to head out now (they are calling for thunderstorms this afternoon — yikes!).  We were planning on BBQ for supper tonight.  I really hope the weather clears for that!  Fingers crossed.

      No windows at all? That sounds awful! At least I can get my sunshine fix if I want to actually, y’know, stand up 😉

What happens when you love to eat healthy (and some unhealthy!) food, love to live frugally, and love to write? You start a food blog, of course. Of course!

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!
