It’s been one fishy day today… literally I’ve been craving sushi pretty much since I woke up. I already planned my meals for the day so I tried to ignore my craving but eventually I gave in. It’s okay to know what you want and it’s okay to honor your cravings… especially when they are healthy.
Before we get to the fishiness, let’s talk…
Nonfat yogurt, 1 apple, TJ’s nutty American trek mix, Zoe’s granola
This trail mix makes my yogurt bowls every time. Thank you, TJ’s, for bringing it back.
I really enjoyed these but I’d like to make something a little lower in sugar. I’m normally ok with a little more sugar than usual before a workout because I feel like the simple carbs will be used for fuel right away, but sometimes I like to eat granola bars as a snack (not necessarily before a workout) so it would be good to have something a little healthier on hand. Lauren’s chocolate cherry granola bars caught my eye today. Do you have a granola bar recipe you love?
PS – we are still looking for an outdoor furniture set. For now this is the set-up. I still love it.
Fishy course numero uno coming up…
Mixed greens, tuna steak, olive gnocchi, sour kraut, fresh tomatoes and edamame spread, dressed with lemon juice
The tuna and gnocchi were leftovers from Saturday’s dinner in Maine. I still owe you a post about that. I promise to not to hold out much longer.
The edamame spread was a great little addition to the salad. I dipped everything in it. Yum!
And then the sushi craving hit again… hard. So I made it happen.
Fishy course numero dos: wildfire maki from Samurai (from the specials menu) – spicy tuna maki topped with tuna, jalapenos and garlic, blow-torched and served with ponzu sauce
+ sushi appetizer (chef’s choice of 6 pieces of sushi)
Honestly this was not the best sushi I’ve had. It didn’t seem that fresh. I want sushi to melt in my mouth – this wasn’t the case today. I’m going to think twice about going back to that place.
After everything was set and done, Adam finally came home and delivered a gift from my parents (my birthday is coming up in a few weeks) – a new lens!!! I immediately started playing with it. Yeah, I’ve got work to do, that’s for sure. The pics with the new super fast lens are so blurry!
Random pics of the night…
Mexican frittata I made for Adam… it was delicious if I do say so myself
New photographs we got at a gallery in Rockland, ME. You like?
Eventually there was a bit more snacking.
Multiply these nuts times 3. Yeah, I need to put them in little baggies asap, otherwise we may be in trouble here.
And that’s all I’ve got tonight. Peace out…. and honor your cravings!
