sunday

5 Sep

I love Sundays…especially when there is no work on Monday.  There’s nowhere to be, no pressure to prepare for the week ahead…plenty of time to just be:)

Our go-to quick and easy lunch

Joseph’s whole wheat lavash wrap, broccoli slaw, spinach, homemade hummus, Morningstar black bean burger

Prime example of how flavors aren’t just about the actual food.  They implicate environment, memories, seasons and tradition.  I couldn’t resist a Pumpkin Spice latte…but ordered it iced because it’s still 90 degrees.  It just wasn’t the same:(

However, it still warmed my heart just seeing the sign.

Creepy face.

Dinner was a combination of two favorites.  Mexican Pizza.

Whole wheat pita spread with vegetarian refried beans and topped with all the goods – soy cheese, black beans, diced green chilis, onions and drizzled with green enchilada sauce.  mmmm.

The husband was sweet enough to let me lead him through a yoga class tonight.  And even extra sweet by pretending he enjoyed it!  He’s my guinea pig throughout this whole “learning to be a yoga instructor” process.  I’m so lucky. We worked up quite a sweat actually, and it left me feeling really energized and much more ready for our run than I was before.  Three cheers for yoga!

And then I went out with a bang tonight when my bedtime snack turned into this


That would be Oikos greek yogurt and Kashi Go Lean crunch splattered on my kitchen floor.  Tasty, no?

I’m off to bed – we’ll be starting Labor Day off right with a nice long run!

Hope you are all enjoying your long weekend!

    You’re right- the sunday seemed much more lazy. And I loved it!

    The mexican pizza looks great- it’s like the combination of two of my loves… lol

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

      I know, right? It was the husband’s idea and I was like “why didn’t I think of that?” I think it stemmed from his love of Taco Bell:)

      Hope you’re having a great Labor Day!

    Oh no, sorry about your poor bowl! It always makes me sad to see a dish go like that 😦

    I got a pumpkin spice latte the other day when it was freeezing here, and it was awesome!

      Thanks for the condolences – it was a very sad moment indeed:(

      I know I’m going to kick myself for saying this but “I can’t wait till it’s freezing here!”
