When I’m with you I could stay there, close my eyes, feel you’re here forever, you and me together, nothing is better.
Today we finally moved into our new office! The day flew by and I enjoyed working in my brand new cube with tons of natural light.
We also like to find funny, awkward things to surprise our neighbors with. I don't think it counts as sexual harassment if it comes from a shark! He looked pretty angry though haha. For lunch I had a big bowl of roasted veggies and brown rice. Our refrigerator and shelves were practically bare so I had to get crafty!
Not to worry, I stocked up today after work especially since my sister is coming over for dinner on Wednesday.... and she is bringing an ice cream maker my mom had in the basement and has never opened. Such a waste! I could honestly go into our basement and find presents my mom bought for us when we were 5 that she forgot about. So silly, we were definitely spoiled.
I plan on making my first frozen yogurt. I am over the moon excited for this! I am going to make a fat free strawberry cheesecake fro-yo for me and a chocolate version for my sister and Chris. I'll have to share the recipe with all of you guys! Goodbye Tasti D-Lite, hello Cara's Fro Yo Shoppe!
Like I said, we were running out of food fast. So what do you do when you have nothing to eat but 3 roma tomatoes? Make homemade tomato-basil soup of course!
Homemade Tomato Basil Soup:3 roma tomatoes sliced
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon basil, dried or chopped
pinch of red pepper flakes for a little kick
2 tablespoons fat free sour cream or greek yogurt
2 tablespoons brown rice cooked - optional
Directions:Add olive oil, sliced tomatoes and spices to a pot and boil until tomatoes are tender. Place into a blender and blend until smooth. I wanted my soup thicker so I added cooked brown rice and sour cream. It was delicious and gave me added fiber! Who doesn't usually add crackers to their tomato soup anyways? Same thing but healthier for you in my opinion!
I also made some turkey chili over the weekend to heat up the cold weather outside! I pride myself on the salads I pack Chris for lunch. Especially when I get a text mid-day from him telling me how good it was! He is a simple salad guy - throw anything and everything in there with homemade dressing. I usually try to add black beans or brown rice for added protein/fiber.
I'll leave you guys with literally my favorite song from Adele. The amazing people I work with put their itunes/albums on the server so we can all share music! I scored the new Adele cd and have been playing it non-stop on the treadmill/car/office/laptop - everrrywwhheerre!
