Monday got off to a bit of a slow start as I wasn’t feeling quite 100%. By a bit of a slow start, I mean, I laid in bed, turned on DVRd episodes of the Biggest Loser, and cuddled with Nola until noon. That’s right, noon. And it felt good. I hardly ever spend a whole morning in bed knowing how much I could be doing, but sometimes it’s just necessary.
We celebrated Nola’s adoption day by taking advantage of the beautiful weather and bringing her on a leisurely 4 mile walk. As we discussed what we would eat for lunch after hitting the trail, Dan and I realized that we had little to no options. I would tell you the last time we made a legitimate trip to the grocery store if I could remember. Honestly. So, we made a shopping list, and finally stocked our fridge. If I had the before picture, I promise you would be impressed.
I decided to make a new pumpkin smoothie to snack on in the afternoon. I know pumpkin is typically reserved for the fall, but I’m a big fan and it sounded so good.
- 1/2 cup soy milk
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 1/2 cup vanilla frozen yogurt
- 1/2 teaspoon honey
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 ice cubes
I was really pleased by the result and have a feeling that this smoothie will be making regular appearances in our kitchen.
