What a wonderful and fulfilling day it has been! I got so much accomplished today I feel like I should have got paid for it. The hubby and I ate dinner outside tonight, the weather was perfect 75 degrees and sunny. I love it when the weather gets to be this way, it’s the last day of summer but I know that us Californians will still be feeling the summer heat. O but I do love the fall. I can’t wait for it. Apple picking, cider, leaves changing color (well some of them), and it just smells prettier. Back to dinner, sorry I get so excited when I start dreaming about fall.
For dinner I made a lean flank steak, with a salad for me with tomatoes from my garden, and green beans for the hubby. I also made my famous homemade cornbread in honor of our hard work out today. It was wonderful, I wish I could have had a glass of Cab with it, but I have given up alcohol until the marathon. It hasn’t been as difficult as I thought, except at the family gatherings when there is a good selection of all my favorite wines. OK I have to make a side not here.
1/2-1 cup skim milk depending on how many scoops of protein.
1/4 cup natural PB(Creamy or Chunky I prefer chunky)
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 TB. Olive Oil
8 packs of splenda or stevia or sugar (more or less for your preference)
I followed her directions but I added some mashed banana, just had one for dessert.. very yummy! Will be making them again.
To end the night the hubby and I played 6 rounds of ping pong on our new ping pong table.
I forgot about how much fun this simple game is. It was a great way to end the day, I love being competitive with my hubby for some reason it makes us closer. Now off to bed to read a little and get ready for the drive to Malibu in the morning. Not a huge race just a 5k but I still want to do well, that’s the competitive runner in me coming out. It should be fun I just got notice that my Mom will be running it with me, how fun is that. I don’t remember the last time we had a mother daughter day, it’s way past due!
