After a quick (4 hour) train ride, I’m happily home in New York! I’m torn between watching Say Yes to the Dress and blogging… so I’m multi-tasking 🙂
My Friday started off with a Greek yogurt & berries & 1/2 banana- pretty typical. For now I’ve decided the pricey $1.69 Fage is my favorite brand. And then I ventured to Starbucks (I never go unless someone else drags me with them) with my reusable mug for a free tea– since I don’t drink coffee– in honor of Earth Day!
Lunch was a combination of the remaining ingredients I had in my fridge to make a salad– a small yellow pepper, some TJ’s salsa, and reheated roasted butternut squash and brussels sprouts, with 2 HB eggs. Since I have already posted about ten pictures of my lunch salads, I thought it was time for a close-up!
I had an orange and half a banana in the afternoon to hold me over until dinner. And finally for my long-awaited home-cooked meal! My mom’s turkey meat sauce! This is an old favorite and a comfort food that I always used to request as my “last meal” and “first meal” especially when I was coming home from or leaving for college. Even though I have always had it over spaghetti or penne, I didn’t miss the pasta at all! I had plenty of broccoli and mushrooms to eat it with instead. The recipe is a simple one, but I am convinced there is a secret ingredient in the sauce.
I finished off dinner with some sweet Passover haroset and a few almonds and dried apricots. It’s so nice to be home and I’m looking forward to some shopping, a haircut, a workout, and of course more paleo meals tomorrow!
