Spinach & Red Pepper were ready for chopping, eggs were ready for scrambling, and my stomach was ready for eating. Then I heard a beep, and the lights went down and out.
Adios, power! If I had known you were going to take a lunch break, I would’ve planned accordingly. Instead, I had just finished 6.5 hilly miles.
Between an out and back, I decided to incorporate some stair repeats. Who doesn’t love beating up their legs in the middle of an “easy-turned-hilly” run?! Some days I’m a masochist.
These leg muscles haven’t been subjected to anything worse than hilly runs recently. Lunges, squats or yoga? M.I.A. from my training, for no good reason. I’m inviting them back! I’m already feeling the consequences.
Luckily it is a “we need groceries” day, meaning there was little left to spoil in the fridge. There was just enough for two “Kitchen Sink Salads” – everything must go in!
What went into my Bowl:
Grape tomatoes, purple onion, spinach, mixed greens, tempeh, yellow pepper, shredded mozzarella, Annie’s Tuscan Italian Dressing, Pepper
Well, it’s no omelet, but this was tasty and filling! D used up some chickpeas & beets on his; my salad taste preferences aren’t quite as eclectic. 😉
Clearly we couldnt’ stuff everything into our stomachs in this Save-the-FOOD mission; I worried about our remaining Mahi Mahi & Salmon filets and eggs. I stuck the eggs in the Freezer (which maintained a colder temp than the fridge, obviously) and stashed the Fish into the ice bin. Success!
The lights went back on and the microwave beeped, demanding its clock be Set, about an hour later. Whew. Now it’s time to restock!
