Busy Weekend

by Tammy on October 21, 2018

I wanted to get here earlier to update, but I had to write my discussion board post and then we took a walk, so now it’s 9:00 p.m. and I need to get into the shower in a few minutes. I spent most of the day in the kitchen. A cold front moved through last night, dropping our temps into the 50s for lows and only around 70 for the high, so I opened my windows and made a bunch of food. I made tofu-ranch dressing, salad dressing, spicy bean burgers, and collard greens. Yesterday I made ketchup. I used maple syrup to sweeten it, so it’s still not incredibly healthy, but at least I know what’s in it, and it is good. The tofu-ranch doesn’t taste anything like ranch dressing, but it’s still pretty good. The spicy black bean burgers were pretty good, too. Dan even liked them. The collards turned out pretty good. There isn’t a lot you can do with greens like that, but they are healthy, so I will take some to work tomorrow and make sure they all get eaten. I also cooked up some asparagus in my air fryer. I think that asparagus and Brussels sprouts are my favorite veggies. I used to despise Brussels sprouts, but now I think they are awesome.I cooked some up last night in the air fryer and finished them this morning for breakfast. Then I mashed up some microwaved potatoes and air fried them and ate the with the tofu-ranch and ketchup. Yeah, my whole day revolved around food…

On another note, we made it past graduation. Friday was crazy. I and nine other people worked on the side with the graduate students, who required help with their hoods. There were so many students that we didn’t have time to help them all. We did the best we could, but we were understaffed. We got back to work around 11:00 and the rest of the day dragged by. I was so happy when 3:00 arrived. I went to bed a little after 9:00 and didn’t wake up until 7:00. I didn’t do a lot yesterday. I cleaned a bit, we went to the beach, and then we took our normal walk around the neighborhood. I got over 15,000 steps yesterday. Today I’m only at about 8,000, but I was up bopping around in the kitchen most of the day, so at least I wasn’t sedentary all day.

I will visit blogs tomorrow and I will try to get back later this week to update some more. I know I’ve got more to say, but I really need to get into the shower. I hope you all have a wonderful new week.
