Do you ever get antsy with your house and just want to change it all up? I’m there. I want to redecorate and landscape and install window treatments. Unfortunately that is SO not happening anytime soon, therefore I must improvise- with…
And rearranging (thanks, Gina!).
Right now the only room that I’m 100% happy with is the nursery. Everything else is a work in progress… until we win the lottery.
This morning was momentous. Jack was up at 2, 2:45 and 7, but then fell back asleep until almost 10. Not ideal, but I did manage to squeeze in a run before Brian left for work. Sweet! The weather was perfect. My smashed toe is still sore but I eeked out 3 slow miles. I forgot how nice it is to have the workout over and done with first thing in the morning.
Breakfast was Greek yogurt topped with 2 crumbled Chocolate-Banana Oat Bites, half a banana, sliced almonds and honey.
Jack, my mom and I picked my dad up at work for a little picnic lunch.
(My dad doesn’t usually sport bedazzled sunglasses… his forgot his and had to borrow a pair from my mom.)
Central Market turkey-havarti sandwich and leftover couscous.
For dinner I made a recipe pulled from Real Simple a few months ago: Creamy Barley with Tomatoes and Greens.
Of course I ended up changing it up. I couldn’t find the quick-cooking barley, so I used regular pearl barley instead and upped the cooking liquid (chicken broth instead of water) to three cups. Instead of brie, I used goat cheese. And baby spinach instead of mustard greens.
Anyway, it turned out really well… very similar to risotto. If you make this and use regular barley, just be aware that it takes a lot longer to cook (about 40 minutes).
Time for Glee! And wine.
