My favorite search term today: “there’s poo on the trampoline.”
Good lord, that’s a serious situation. Someone could get hurt.
You know you need to get a life when the highlight of your day is checking your search terms. Or taking a field trip to the library.
I enjoyed Water for Elephants, so I’m hoping this is similarly good. I’ll find out soon enough, as I’ve only got rights to this puppy for a measly week.
Today’s EAT: Tonight’s dinner was a home run: exactly what I was craving after my workout and ready in 20 minutes. Score one for a classic Caesar with salmon:
That gorgeous hunk of wild Coho was on sale for $10/lb (so my piece was under $4!) and the croutons were homemade in minutes from a mini-baguette. The dressing was store-bought:
Caesar salad gets a bad rap because the dressing is so high in calories and fat. I’ve found that the key is to buy a dressing that’s more oily than creamy: it coats the lettuce more evenly and you’ll need less than you would of the thicker stuff. (This Smith + Wollensky dressing was 100 calories for 2 TBSP, which was just about right for my big salad. Not bad at all! And no weird ingredients – well, unless you consider anchovies weird.)
Today’s DRINK: I’d been excited about opening this bottle of Cloud Break Chard as it came highly recommended by the Total Wine guy that sold it to me:
So why not on a random Monday night, right?
It’s neither buttery nor oakey, neither sharp nor watery. In fact, it’s just right. There are hints of lemon and honey. For $7, I’d definitely buy this again!
Today’s RUN: Easy four miles on the treadmill. I just set it at 7.0 with 1% incline and did my best to zone out. I certainly could have run outdoors, but I’m still getting a little throat scratchiness in the morning so I’m babying myself. Wah, I know.
Since I was already at the gym, I popped in for a 45-minute Pilates class, too.
Today’s QUESTION: Whatcha readin’ right now?
